Britt Bradford and Zander Ford have been the best of friends since they met thirteen years ago. Unbeknown to Britt, Zander has been in love with her for just as long.

Independent and adventurous Britt channels her talent into creating chocolates at her hometown shop. Zander is a bestselling author who’s spent the past 18 months traveling the world. He’s achieved a great deal but still lacks the only thing that ever truly mattered to him–Britt’s heart.

When Zander’s uncle dies of mysterious causes, he returns to Merryweather, Washington, to investigate, and Britt is immediately there to help. Although this throws them into close proximity, both understand that an attempt at romance could jeopardize their once-in-a-lifetime friendship. But while Britt is determined to resist any change in their relationship, Zander finds it increasingly difficult to keep his feelings hidden.

As they work together to uncover his uncle’s tangled past, will the truth of what lies between them also, finally, come to light?


Becky Wade is a California native who attended Baylor University, met and married a Texan, and settled in Dallas.  She published historical romances for the general market before putting her career on hold for several years to care for her three children.  When God called her back to writing, Becky knew He meant for her to turn her attention to Christian fiction.  She loves writing funny, modern, and inspirational contemporary romance!  She’s the Christy and Carol award winning author of My Stubborn Heart, the Porter Family series, and the Bradford Sisters Romance series.

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Sherrinda Ketchersid’s debut novel “Lord of Her Heart”. Here I’ll share the first line from chapter 11 of the same book.
    “Tension filled the air as servants jostled each other in a frantic pace to prepare meals for those at the tournament.”

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Today I shared the first line from Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner but it’s also the book I’m about to dig into so I don’t have an extra line at the moment to share. Have a great weekend!

    Wonderful story! The first line from my current read, The Highest of Hopes by Susan Anne Mason is:
    “There was no turning back now!”

    I loved that book! Today I’m sharing the first line from The Brave Art of Motherhood by Rachel Marie Martin:

    “Over the past five years, I’ve lived what I’ve jokingly called a public private life.”

    Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens — It’s such a good book … I highly recommend it. Currently, I’m reading Shine the Light by April McGowan. I’m on chapter seven, so I’ll share the first line from there:

    “Shannon didn’t feel comfortable having Justin stay with her.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤📚

    I am looking forward to this book – I loved the first two in the series!

    I’m currently reading “It’s a Love Story” by Lincee Ray and the first line is “My first love story includes a stack of books from the library and a doll.”

      A stack of books and a love story . . . 🙂

    The quote I’m sharing on my blog today is from the novella collection An Amish Reunion. This is the first line from page 81 of my current read, Who I Am With You by Robin Lee Hatcher:

    “Ignorance, Ridley discovered, isn’t bliss.”

    Have a great weekend!
