They’re coworkers, friends, and confidants, but Peter Marshal has always pined for a little something more with Noelle Walters. As a widow and a single mom, Noelle prefers to play it safe, and falling for Peter was never part of the plan.
Then again, neither of their plans accounted for the well-meaning but meddling actions of Peter’s sister, who offers him up as their town’s most eligible bachelor in the local moms’ Facebook group. He’s none the wiser about the source of this sudden surge in attention, but he only has eyes for Noelle. And from where she’s standing on the sidelines of Peter’s popularity, it’s getting harder to pretend that she doesn’t see what everyone else sees in her best friend.
With all eyes on them, will Peter and Noelle finally see beyond the hurdles to the happily ever after that’s been there all along?

The mom Facebook group posts and comments were so funny and spot on. The authenticity had me cackling. All the drama and opinions from this addition to the book really made it unique. It was a great touch. Along the same lines, these ladies constantly hitting on Peter when all he wanted was Noelle was hilarious.
Also, the small-town vibes were immaculate. The little bits of drama and everyone knowing everyone was so fun. This especially added to the plot of Peter’s sister throwing the women of the town his way.
