Florist Rose McDaniels is the unofficial matchmaker of Hartwood Falls. Her annual Secret Valentines have brought together more happy couples than she can count. Too bad the only person she can’t seem to help find love is herself. Try as she may, no one holds a candle to the boy who made her first believe in love . . . right before he left town with her heart.
When cardiac surgeon Liam Bradley returns to his childhood home of Hartwood Falls for the first time in fifteen years, his life is falling apart all around him. With his career at risk and a relationship with his longtime girlfriend on the rocks, true love is the last thing on his mind.
His quiet retreat turns upside down when he comes face to face with the girl he left a secret message for all those years ago.
Then a freak accident finds this self-proclaimed cynic up to his ears in roses and love notes—all because of her.
Rose and Liam gamble their hearts and confess old secrets in this heart-warming tale of second chances and forgiveness.
