When Jackson St. James decided that six weeks in Vermont’s Green Mountains would help him get his life together, he didn’t anticipate replacing his craving for whiskey with a craving for his alluring new landlord, Gabby. Now, instead of prioritizing his sobriety and the resolution of the lawsuit threatening his business, he’s making excuses to spend time with the spunky young landscaper whose candor is more than a little addictive.
Gabby Decouteau refuses to let her pill-popping mother and unreliable baby daddy turn her into a cynic, so she doesn’t fight her attraction to her enigmatic new tenant. Although Jackson’s smile rarely reaches his eyes, his generosity and dependability make her willing to overlook his demons. But once she convinces him to give in to temptation, Gabby’s jealous ex threatens to disrupt the life she has built for herself and her son.
With so much at stake, Gabby and Jackson must decide if love is worth the risk.
Excellent book! Gabby is a young single mother living with her father and running her business. Jackson is a troubled soul who comes to live at their guest house for a few weeks to deal with his alcohol issues. Besides the the fact that this was a love story and it showed both characters grow tremendously it also dealt with substance abuse in a couple different ways. Gabby was such a kind person and very mature for her age, she was like a breath of fresh air. Jackson was so much more than what he thought of himself. He was kind and caring. Almost all of the characters in this book grew and matured throughout the story. It was beautifully written.
