But then a vulnerable little boy barrels into both their lives, forcing them out of the pastand into a future where love is just down the road...

"A masterful storyteller." --Catherine Anderson, New York Times bestselling author
"Jodi Thomas is one of the best storytellers in genre fiction, and in the Harmony books she has created a town that fits the small-town trend and yet remains a distinctive place with characters who are refreshingly different. One of the reasons I love this series is that Thomas takes the characters who would be limited to secondary roles in more conventional books and moves them front and center to feature their lives and their romances. Tinch Turner is no more a typical hero than is Harmony’s undertaker Tyler Wright, but Thomas reveals both as men with a wealth of courage, tenderness, and romanticism." --The Romance Dish
