Lily Danville's life is crumbling around her. With no money and no home, her only choice is to go back to the one town she swore she'd never see again: Cedar Ridge, Colorado. Back to the memories of her sister's tragic death. Back to the place where, ten years ago, she shared an unforgettable kiss with Aidan Kincaid-the man her sister once loved.

A new job at the town's hottest resort is just the fresh start Lily has been looking for...until she discovers the resort is owned by none other than the Kincaid family. How can she possibly see Aidan every day without feeling as if she's betraying her sister?

But as secrets from the past come to light and Lily starts to realize the truth, she can only hope it's not too late to find love, family, and forgiveness. 


Lily Danville has just about lost everything. She has no money, no home and no job. Returning home to Cedar Ridge, Colorado might just be the fresh start she needs. Lily was fortunate enough to get a job almost right away. She will be working at the town's resort. Lily is none too happy, however, to discover the that resort is owned by the Kincaid family.

The Kincaid family. This is a problem because Lily is incredibly attracted to Aidan Kincaid. However, when she was younger, it was her sister that was head over heels for Aidan. Sadly, she lost her sister back then, and Lily is afraid to act on her feelings for Aidan. She wants her memories of her sister to be pure.

Meanwhile, Aidan is drawn to Lily and has never forgotten a kiss they shared ten years ago. Is this the opportunity for another chance between them? On the one hand, Aidan wants to pursue Lily, but he is incredibly busy as a wildlife firefighter. Aidan participates in a lot of search-and-rescue operations.

This story had a few layers to it. Lily and Aidan were growing closer, but a lot of attention was focused on the rescues, as well as other conflicts. Even so, I did enjoy this book by Jill Shalvis and have already downloaded the other two books, My Kind of Wonderful and Nobody But You. Even though this wasn't my favorite book by Jill Shalvis, I am really looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
