Description from the publisher:

What if one night changed your life forever?

Maisie Scott lost not only her husband and unborn child in a tornado two years ago, she lost her will to live. Keeping busy is the only way she can get by. This small town waitress won't let herself get attached to anyone … until Ryan, the new veterinarian for exotic animals, starts making regular trips to her diner. As hard as she tries not to feel anything, Ryan ignites a spark in her broken heart.

Ryan Tucker craves a happy family of his own more than his Momma’s apple pie. Getting over his fiancée leaving him six months ago, he moves to Pleasant Valley for a fresh start. When he meets Maisie and notices the sadness in her eyes, he is determined to put a smile on her pretty face.

When another dangerous storm hits, Ryan stays by Maisie's side. She fills the missing piece in his heart, but will Ryan share his secret? Can Maisie move on from the past and learn to begin again?



After losing her husband and her unborn child in a tornado, Maisie is living with her sister and brother-in-law.  She is content enough working at a diner, as long as she is too busy to remember that day.  Dr. Ryan Tucker has moved into town, escaping his own painful past.  He knows what he wants as soon as he sees Maisie’s sad face.


This was a sweet romance between two people scarred by their previous relationships.  This book was an emotional roller-coaster for me.  I lost a child to Hurricane Charley back in 2004, so, when Ms. Newton and I first spoke of me doing some reviews for her, she expressed her concern for me reading this.  I took it on, knowing that I would be facing my own memories and traumas.  I’m glad I did.  I did cry several times while reading, but I also laughed so hard I had those tears as well.  My son and husband were actually making me laugh even more, when I was watching their reactions and listening to them laughing at me.  The laughter and tears were perfectly balanced in this tale of finding and claiming true love.
