One Sweet Development (Hope Springs Romance #1)
In One Sweet Development, the small town of Hope Springs has everything a budding relationship needs-
- advice from the Advice Quilting Bee,
- the nosy Little Old Lady Network,
- and ghosts?
Hope Springs is also in the midst of a contentious revitalization project, much too many locals' dismay. Fortunately, Hope Springs is home to a group of strong, independent women with the entrepreneurial drive to keep the small-town spirit alive.
In this clean and wholesome romance novel, Chandler Bradford owns the town bakery, Sweet Stuff Bakery. She is also a member of the Advice Quilting Bee, run by local matriarch Rosie Macintire of Rosie's Quilting Emporium. Chandler has lived in Hope Springs all her life, and couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
Big town real estate developer Peter Frederick grew up in the city and has worked hard to build his development business. He also happens to be Rosie's grandson.
When Peter comes to town to bid on the revitalization project, the ladies think he's the perfect match for Chandler. However, she's not so sure.
Chandler is tasked by the ladies to give him a tour of the town and explain its rich history, not knowing his real intention is to demolish most of the historic buildings, including her bakery.
As their relationship grows, Peter realizes the historic structures his company is looking to destroy are the heart and soul of the town. He sets out to come up with an alternative plan. He also learns from Chandler the importance of family and sets out to make amends with his own father.
Unfortunately, his employee, Cassia Collins has another idea, especially when she figures out Peter has his sights set on Chandler and not her.
Can Chandler trust an outsider used to tearing down the old to make way for the new?
Can Peter give up the city for life in a small town?
And what's with all the ghosts hanging around town?
One Sweet Development is a small-town romantic comedy about love and life in a small town.
