Publisher's Summary

Falling in love with Daisy was easy for Jack. But finding the courage to tell her becomes problematic when his secret feelings lead to even bigger complications.

From the best-selling author of The Convenient Groom and A December Bride (now beloved Hallmark Original movies) comes the final book in the Blue Ridge Romance series.

After two years of counseling sessions with Daisy Pendleton, Pastor Jack McReady has earned a permanent spot in her life as a spiritual leader - and nothing more. Jack would never risk losing her trust by exposing the depths of his heart, but he’s hopelessly in love with her.

Daisy loves her Southern small-town life and her job at her family-run flower shop, but she doesn’t have the thing she longs for most: someone to share it with. Her recent foray into online dating has been a disaster - until she meets TJ.

Jack could kill his friend Noah for using his initials and some indistinct photos to set up a profile on the dating app Daisy is using. But when he’s finally afforded the opportunity to show her a different side of himself, he’s sucked into the plan before he has time for second thoughts.

Online, Daisy shares some of her greatest fears with TJ, but in person, Jack and Daisy are spending more time together. When a devastating family secret surfaces, Daisy knows that only her trusted friend and counselor can bring her comfort. Jack wants nothing more than to be both men for Daisy, but revealing his secret will prove to be the ultimate test of Daisy’s grace.

Rollicking fun read

I found this to be an unexpectedly lighthearted read from Denise Hunter even though she tackles some heavy issues. Still -- it comes across (to me anyway) as a romantic comedy. I listened to the audible version and I was constantly laughing out loud. Would-be-suitor Pastor Jack is just so...awkward....and the pep talks he gives himself! I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time!

And then there's Daisy, so clueless. She has Jack boxed in as 'Pastor' and since she totally isn't pastor wife material the idea of romance doesn't enter her head....at least not consciously. Loved watching these two bungle their way towards a HEA. As much as I laughed, my heart was also touched by their struggles. I could relate to Jack's social awkwardness and Daisy's insecurities. It made me want to root for them even more.

A rollicking fun read with a 'You've Got Mail' kinda vibe.
