Artist Mackenzie Lane is almost thirty and still single, which, according to her neighbors, pretty much makes her the Spinster of Sweetbriar Cove. She’s sworn off terrible fix-ups, and is looking forward to her solo future of woolly mumus and cats. (Lots of cats). But a chance Halloween rendezvous awakens her reckless spirit, and makes her wonder if love might be in the cards, after all…
Jake Sullivan is back in town for the first time in years, recovering from a career-ending sports injury. He’s dazzled by the mysterious woman he meets by chance - and even more intrigued when he discovers it’s his high-school friend Mackenzie.
Ten years ago, Jake was the first (and only) guy to put a dent in Mackenzie’s invincible heart. She’s determined not to make the same mistake again, but when the pair are forced to team up to plan the annual Starbright Festival, old sparks fly - and new passion runs riot.
Soon, Mackenzie and Jake are risking it all. But will their connection last longer than the first snowfall? And can these old friends start a new chapter for love? Find out in the sizzling, romantic new novel from Melody Grace!

Glory. Fame. The adrenalin rush of the applause and the cheers. It can all be addictive. Jake had always had one single goal... to be the best football player around. His determination and dedication paid off when he excelled in high school, then college, and finally, when he was drafted into the NFL.
Ten years is a long time for a football player. Their bodies take all kinds of punishment overridden only by the desire to be the best and win. One torn ACL and that dream may just disappear. This is how we find Jake now, as he returns to Sweetbriar Cove to recuperate and think about his future if he still has one playing the game.
Mac is loving her life as the owner of her own little gallery. Her dinnerware and kitschy items are the results of hours of dedication at the pottery wheel. Her love life is nonexistent. No one measures up to the image of her high school friend Jake. Although he never clued in, Mac has had a super crush on him since she was sixteen years old. Somehow those feelings have remained dormant but present for the last ten years when he left town and went off to find fame and fortune.
Meeting Jake at this point in her life turns all her dreams and life upside down, to say the least. Now they both must find out what is important to each of them. Her life is in Sweetbriar. His life is in the vortex of all his fame and fortune. Will they be able to bridge the gap?
I just adore all the stories about this little town. This endearing book is so far the best of all these small-town stories. It makes you feel all the emotions that come with a relationship that endured the test of time, and yet is shining new. Loved it!
