Apple Valley, Washington, is where starting over means surprising new chances, facing trouble always brings a helping hand—and the most unlikely hopes can forever come true…

Apricot Sunshine Devereux-Miller needs to stay lost. Her eccentric aunt's home in Apple Valley is the perfect place to forget her cheating ex-fiancĂ© and get her no-longer-perfect life back under control. Plus, it couldn't hurt to fix up the house and turn its neglected orchard into a thriving business. And if Apricot can keep Deputy Sheriff Simon Baylor's two lively young daughters out of mischief, maybe she can ignore that he’s downright irresistible—and everything she never dreamed she'd find ...

Simon isn't looking to have his heart broken again. He already has his hands full raising his girls. And lately he's thinking way too much about Apricot's take-charge energy and unwitting knack for stirring up trouble. He can't see a single way they could ever be right for each other. Unless they can take a crazy chance on trusting their hearts—and risking the courage to finally find their way home.

I loved this book! So some of the characters names were well unique but the story was well written and I really enjoyed it. It had some funny parts and the characters drew me in from the beginning.

Apricot left her fiancé before the wedding because she found out he was unfaithful so she heads to her Aunt Roses house and her first day there she meets Simon. You can see that he is enchanted by Apricot and wants to know more about her. Although Apricot is getting over her failed relationship their is something about Simon that calls to her.

I adored Simons twin daughters the most. They were cute and Hilarious. I couldn't help myself when Simons sister in law became all sorts of crazy. I kept repeating wow she has issues while I was reading.

This was a sweet love story that wasn't rushed in having kids or getting married. And shockingly their was no sex but that didn't bother me since the story was so well done. It's like I didn't even notice.

I really did enjoy this book. This is the first book I have read in this series and I am hooked! I need to read the other books now. This really was a great quick read.
