About this ebook

Ms. Sunshine meets Mr. Grumpy! From USA Today bestselling author R.L. Kenderson.

“Sometimes, not knowing where you’re going will lead you to where you need to be.”


My workplace eliminated my position the same month my relationship ended. With nothing keeping me in Richmond, Virginia, I get in my car and head northeast, unsure of where I’ll end up.

Until I walk into The Busy Bean Café.

With the Help Wanted sign and the quote on the wall meant for me, I know I’ve found my new home.


I gave up my executive job in Boston to come home to help run my family’s hardware store and to open my own handcrafted furniture business. I have specific plans for my life.

Those plans don’t include the coffee shop’s new flighty barista even if she is cute as hell.

But when I become Charli’s landlord, I find it harder than ever to stay away from her. And soon, I don’t want to.


Sidetracked is a stand-alone novel in the Busy Bean series of Sarina Bowen's World of True North! Stop in for coffee and romance. Java isn't the only thing brewing around here...

This was a fun, sweet, and sexy read. Charli and Gabe are both starting over in a way and fate has a way of showing you the way. The attraction is palpable and I love how mature they were about it. It flows well and had me unable to put it down.

Sidetracked is a wonderful, laugh-out-loud, sexy story of two people finding what they were least expecting! Charli is a free spirit who stops in a small town in Vermont because it feels right. She rents a place from Gabe and his brother. Gabe works at the family run hardware store and does woodworking on the side. Gabe and Charli passionately butt heads from first glance. That passion has to be channeled somewhere. What better place than the bedroom?!?! I love the back and forth between Charli and Gabe. Their relationship progresses is a cute and exasperating way! Gabe's dad is adorable and a great comic relief to the story! Bravo R.L. Kenderson!
