The small town of Hope’s Crossing, Colorado seems like the best place to start over from being an undercover cop. Riley McKnight believes the same thing, which is why he takes the Chief of Police job in his hometown. His past behaviors are still haunting him and others still judge him but not Claire. She owns the beads store that is robbed which brings Riley and her face to face again.
Both with past crushes on each other that sparks present attractions, which both try to fight it. When Claire is in a car accident the community rally’s around to help her especially Riley. Tragedy brings down the thief, but sadness follows this small community especially because Riley’s family feels the impact. Claire knows her mother and ex-husband are against her getting close to Riley but she can’t help it. She is grown and has the last say. Will her decision back fire?
This was a wonderful story of a community’s inspiration and coming back together. This book had well-developed characters as well as storyline with just enough of romance. I also liked the mystery behind the Angel of Hope performing wonderful acts of kindness. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
