Morgan Parrish returns to Harmony Falls after her spectacle of an almost wedding and her father’s colossal fall from grace. She’s broke and infamous. But that’s nothing compared to the secret she’s been keeping.
Life is finally on the upswing for Charlie Cramer. He’s sober and chef of Chargrilled Bistro. But his peace is shattered, when the woman he loves—the woman who left him—shows up in town with shocking cargo: the baby he’d begged her to keep and raise with him. When fate steps in and Morgan takes a job working in Charlie’s bistro, things heat up—in and out of the kitchen. Can they learn to trust each other enough to love again? And is that love enough to keep them up when everyone else is trying to tear them down?
My Review: 4 1/2 stars
I loved reading about Charile finally getting the happiness he deserved. At first, I was pretty pissed at Morgan for what she had done to Charlie, Justin and Alice. But I got over that fairly quickly when I realized that Morgan had been keeping to herself, raising her and Charlie's child. Morgan has had to go through a lot lately, and everyone treating her like a social pariah is kind of fitting, seeing as that's how she treated people years ago. Morgan is a changed woman however, with different goals and a new perspective on life. Charlie has come a long way since Morgan left town, he's sober and back on his feet with a partial ownership in a bistro that makes him happy. Then he finds out Morgan has come back and who she brought with her, and that changes everything for Charlie. Oh, he tries to fight it, but it's kind of useless. I loved seeing both Morgan and Charlie grown up and responsible, putting others first instead of themselves. I absolutely loved the end, it was fanastic to watch it fall together.
