About the Author
As a child, Cindy dreamed of becoming a writer. Well, okay, thanks to her grade three teacher reading a chapter of The Little House on the Prairie books to Cindy's class everyday, Cindy actually dreamed of becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder. It made so much sense. After all, Cindy's blond older sister always got to wear blue while Cindy with the "dark as cinders" hair was often relegated to wearing dull old pink--just like Laura. Laura was part of a pioneer family, and until Cindy went to school she lived in a miniscule farming community where her father and grandparents were born. What further confirmation for her future does an eight-year-old with an avid imagination require? When Cindy realized becoming Laura meant learning to travel back in time and using--gasp!--outhouses where she believed evil trolls were hiding to gobble her up, she decided to remain in the present and become a writer instead. Her first poem began, "My father is a logger, He stirs his coffee with his thumb, He has a dog named Blackie, And in his truck they both look dumb." Thus another illustrious literary career was born. Cindy earned a first class B.A. in English Lit. from the University of Victoria before unleashing herself on the unsuspecting workforce. However, she quickly realized her aversion to fluorescent lights and the numbers 9-2-5 wouldn't gain her kudos from her various bosses. Luckily, she married Steven King (note the lack of a "ph"), who whisked her to a tiny logging town where she couldn't find a job...unless you count her stint as secretary to the warden of a minimum security prison. There, Cindy began writing novels, and she hasn't looked back. Because, honestly, what other employer in their right mind would want her? A Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® finalist and author of rollicking romantic comedies and emotional contemporary romance, Cindy's mission in life is to see her surname spelled properly--with an E. So take heed. That's P-r-o-c-t-E-r. Not, no, never, under any flippin' circumstances should you spell it with two O's. Cindy lives in Canada with her husband, their two grown sons, a cat obsessed with dripping tap water, and Allie McBeagle.

This was a very well-written book. The only grammatical error I found was "to you and I." The book started a little slowly for me, but the pace picked up before long. I felt there were way too many curse words. I found over sixty-some before I gave up tallying them. This author is too good with words. She doesn't need this redundancy. There were also several steamy, descriptive sex scenes. These were rather well-done considering the content and more realistic than many such scenes. I would have preferred the story without them, but I know many readers would disagree.
Jess Morgan is beleaguered by painful memories that she hasn’t dealt with. One of them centers on the relationship that she and her mother do not have—and, as we learn while the story unfolds, they never did have because her father was the type of individual that he was.
Jess had resented her step father, who was the man that had quickly stepped up to support her mother after Jess’s father’s death. Hess and he had never made peace with each other, but when he died, Jess felt obligated to come home for a few days to see her mom. Then she would head back to her life in Toronto.
But in real life (and fiction) things are often not what they appear to be. She found her mother desolate, floundering in the pain of her loss. This shocked Jess, but it further angered her because she felt her mother had never grieved for her father in the same way. Yet her heart reached out to the woman she had never understood. Their struggle was a major part of this story.
And then there was Adam Wright. As an adolescent, Jesse had worn her heart on her sleeve for him, but he hadn’t paid any attention to her. She was far too young then, and now she is far too jaded and defensive.
Adam’s interest peaks immediately, and he pursues her, but she does everything she can to push him away. When she heads back to her job in Toronto he believes he has lost her because he pushed her too hard.
I liked the way the plot developed and how it came to conclusion. This is a light read, but it actually does deal with circumstances that can happen in real life. My husband was a logger, and I know men who work in the same profession Adam does. The descriptions are true to life and all the characters were well developed and relatable.
Don’t miss a great read set in beautiful British Columbia, Canada by an author who lives in the same province!
