Dreams of escaping her small town brought Ellie Oliver to New York only to find that life there wasn’t all she’d hoped. Seven years later, she is returning to Pleasant Valley, Indiana with new hopes and secrets. She wants nothing more than to fade into the slow pace of small town life and forget about the demons of her past.
Jacob Jones is at loose ends. At twenty-six, a man shouldn’t be starting his life over from scratch. Finding himself out of work, Jacob looks for a new home in Pleasant Valley. He is ready for the single life just enjoying the company of close friends. All that changes when he takes a job remodeling the town’s toy shop and comes head to head with its new owner. Ellie turns out to be sweeter than the candy she sells in her store.
Ellie and Jacob bring out feelings in each other neither were looking for, but both can’t deny. Can they truly trust again or will their shattered hearts refuse to mend?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write about fleeing from an abusive relationship and starting over, learning to trust again.
“I’ll be back in a few hours.” Bryce gave a smug smile before closing the door.
Heart hammering inside her chest, Ellie Oliver rushed through the apartment to the bedroom. She went to the window and held her breath as she watched Bryce Lindun, her boyfriend and worst nightmare, get into his parked car. She grabbed the sock filled with money out of the back of her dresser drawer. She had to hurry.
Ellie’s hands shook as she shoved her clothes, still on hangers, into a large suitcase. She grabbed the raggedy doll she’d had as a child from under the bed and added it to the case. As she dashed through the apartment and passed a bookcase full of personal trinkets, she hesitated. No time. Those things could be replaced. Adrenaline surged through her as she closed the door and headed out of the building to hail a taxi without a backward glance.
