Fans of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series will love this small-town, feel-good romance!
Paris Haynes has spent most of her life running from one bad relationship to the next. Three years ago, determined to put her past behind her, she moved to Sapphire Bay and began to rebuild her life.
Working with Kylie in the flower shop has given her a sense of purpose, a reason to live the kind of life she’s always dreamed about. When she hears about the cottages being remodeled on Anchor Lane, she can hardly contain her excitement. She proposes a plan so outrageous, so out of her comfort zone, that she’s sure it will fail before it begins.
Richard Dawkins lost his leg in Afghanistan and nearly lost his son. Moving to Sapphire Bay has given him more than a place to call home. He has new friends, a steady job, and a state-of-the-art prosthetic leg that’s transformed his life.
Helping to turn the cottages on Anchor Lane into small, thriving businesses will be his way of giving back to the community. But when he discovers Paris has been given the keys to the first cottage, he knows he’s in trouble. The no-nonsense, tough-as-nails brunette has been a thorn in his side ever since they met. He isn’t interested in making her dreams come true—all he wants is to finish the cottage in double-quick time and move onto the next one.
When Paris needs his help to decorate the biggest society wedding Sapphire Bay has ever seen, he can’t say no. Especially when his son thinks the world of her. And, after spending too many nights creating frames for over-the-top floral arrangements, he begins to see why.
THE FLOWER COTTAGE is the first book in The Cottages on Anchor Lane series and can easily be read as a stand-alone. All of Leeanna’s series are linked. If you find a character you like, they could be in another novel!
