Product Description:

The New York Times bestselling author returns to Mystic Creek, Oregon, with a story about finding an unforgettable love just around the corner. . . .
 
When a favorite customer on his delivery route needs a favor, Tanner Richards agrees to help without a second thought. The last thing he expects is to face off against the man’s spitfire granddaughter.
 
Crystal Malloy is near her breaking point. Her beloved grandfather constantly skirts the rules at the retirement center where he’s recovering from surgery. She’s caring for his escape artist dog, even if it means abandoning her salon customers, and she has no time for a romantic attraction to the handsome new stranger. 
 
After Tanner’s reassigned to Mystic Creek, Crystal can no longer ignore how much she misjudged the man’s good intentions. She has known too much sorrow to easily open her heart, but she can’t deny that Tanner and his children could gift her with a happiness beyond compare—if only she can forgive herself for the past and accept that she’s deserving of such a love.



Tuck Malloy became guardian to his granddaughter Crystal when she was young. A freak accident costing the life of Crystal's younger sister left Crystal blaming herself throughout the years. A widower, Tuck is a curmudgeon but loves Crystal unconditionally. Now, at age 80, he is recuperating in assisted living after breaking his arm, ribs, and needing a hip replacement from a fall.

Tuck hates the facility's conditions, especially Patricia Flintlock, the administrator. Her rules are unbendable and she is just plain nasty. Tuck misses his daily beer and chew, so he calls his friend Tanner Richards, a Courier Express driver. Tanner agrees to deliver some of his favorite contraband to him. All goes well until Tuck's stash is discovered and Patricia insists Tuck be evicted.

Crystal stands up for Tuck yet Patricia orders she phone the delivery service demanding the employee be fired. Reluctantly she does, but only for Tuck's sake, after realizing Tanner is Tuck's friend.

Crystal's life is a whirlwind as she tries to run her business and care for Tuck's offensive dog, Rip. After her stand-off with Patricia, Crystal rescinds her complaint against Tanner, hoping she caused no harm. Though Tanner's employment has been exemplary, his boss changes his route causing him to be away from his children longer.

When Tanner and Crystal meet there's an apparent magnetism. Tanner never thought he'd find another after his wife died. Crystal is fearful to pursue a relationship believing she hurts everything she is close to. But, they cannot deny the attraction.

Through all this, Tuck becomes enamored with Essie, another resident, and life at the home looks better. This fourth edition in the Mystic Creek series could pass as two books; one to relate Crystal's past with her present feelings and another highlighting Tuck's life and history. Juxtaposed between their stories is the delightful addition of Rip, Tuck's cantankerous pooch who ends up winning hearts.
