Julie Miller has returned to her home in Brookfield, Wyoming after discovering she is pregnant. All she wants is her mother to comfort her after her boyfriend told her to either have an abortion or leave. The only problem is, when she gets to her mother’s house, she doesn’t find her mom–she finds a half-naked man cooking breakfast.
Mark Thomas has moved to Brookfield to escape his past. He needs a fresh start to try and forget the things that haunt him, and Brookfield seems like the perfect place.
As if it isn’t bad enough that Julie doesn’t find her mother, a blizzard buries the town, and she is snowed in with Mark. Leaving them no choice, they begin a friendship while trying to resist the attraction they feel for one another.
Once the snow melts, Julie is free to leave. Will she choose to start a life in Brookfield or run back to New York? Meanwhile, Mark struggles to let go of his past and, if he does, is Julie his future?

I really loved this book! Lacey Wolfe is an extremely talented author. I was going to read book 2, Bare Necessities, without reading this one, but decided against. I am sure glad that I went and grabbed this one. I fell in love with the story itself, along with the characters and the town of Brookfield. Complete with a gossiper or two, humor and romance, this story is a relaxing read.
I adored Julie’s character! She’s a strong and independent woman whose scared to death of finding out she’s pregnant and being kicked out by her cruel boyfriend. I really wanted to reach out and give her a hug! When she makes it home and realizes that her mom’s not there, she’s a little disappointed…until she comes face to face with Mark Thomas.
Mark Thomas’ character is a wonderfully created one! I adored him. He was so sweet to Julie! Trouble is, he has a past that he’s not sure he wants to tell her. But, he sure feels a powerful attraction to her. And when the blizzard hits, a week might not be enough for him with Julie. Especially when he learns of her pregnancy. Could this be his second chance at happiness and forever?
Totally loved reading the story and finding that out! I read it in less than a day and was not ready to say goodbye. The town of Brookfield really pulled me into the center and wrapped me up in it’s warmth. Ms. Wolfe has created a 5 Book worthy novel and one that I would definitely recommend to everyone looking for a sometimes funny, often romantic, captivating story! Well done, Ms. Wolfe!
