This latest story in Stacey's popular "Kowalski Family" series (Yours To Keep) is a contemporary romance about two adults finding their way through a little bit of pain to their happily ever after. Mitch Kowalski has spent his life away from Whitford, ME, running his demolition company and living out of a suitcase. He comes home because his brother has a broken leg, and his family's bed-and-breakfast is in financial trouble. Mitch figures that while he's in town, he'll have a fling with someone on his usual terms: no strings, no ties, no tears when he leaves. Instead, he meets Paige Sullivan, the owner of the Trailside Diner, who's sworn off dating-period. Paige is living for herself now, but Mitch tempts her off the wagon. After all, they both know the rules-until they both break them. Verdict No one does contemporary romance like Stacey. The Kowalski family is one that readers will want either to be adopted by or marry into. Mitch loves coming home but hates returning to a place where everyone remembers every incident from his childhood. The town gossip is delicious and salacious. Mitch and Paige have a sweet and sensual chemistry, and the peripheral characters are marvelous as well. Very highly recommended.-Marlene Harris, Reading Reality LLC, Atlanta (c) Copyright 2012.
