The Candellanos Book One
"An absolutely wonderful contemporary romance. A delightful blend of humor and emotion." – Kristin Hannah on Finding You
After tragedy struck, Carla Candellano retreated from an elite search and rescue squad to her hometown, where she's safe from everything except her Italian mama's meddling. When a handsome stranger moves in next door, Carla can't help being drawn to Jackson Wyatt and the silent child at his side.
Reese hasn't spoken since her mother died, so Jackson brought her to Chandler in hopes that the beach-town charm would bring back the laughing little girl she once was. This is not the time for the strongest desire he's ever felt. He should be focused on Reese, not falling for the beautiful woman next door. But how can he stay away when his precious daughter soaks in the affection of Carla and the close-knit Candellanos? And when his own heart begins to feel again for the first time in a very long time?
Over one passionate summer, Carla and Jackson will discover that no matter where you try to hide, destiny has a way of finding you.
