From USA Today bestselling author Hope Ramsay comes a small-town romance filled with love, laughter, and friendship! Veterinarian Noah Cuthbert had no intention of ever moving back to the small town of Magnolia Harbor. But he’s come to spend the summer to give his sister a break from caring for their ailing mom. However, his mother has other ideas. She figures he’ll stick around if he takes a job running the local animal clinic.
It’s Noah’s first day on the job, and he’s already in for a surprise. Staffed by volunteers, the clinic is chaos. Just in time, newcomer Lia DePalma walks in with a mangy stray mutt and leaves with a job to manage the whole place. Soon she’s trying to manage Noah’s life too. Then comes surprise #2, when Noah realizes that he actually likes having someone around who shares his interests and concerns. Unfortunately, the town matchmakers say that Lia is already spoken for though.
As the summer comes to a close and Noah begins to think he could build a life here, a town crisis forces him to take a stand that could potentially cost him everything. And forces Lia to confess that Noah is truly the hero of her heart.
Includes the bonus novel Then There Was You by Miranda Liasson!
