 He's one bad apple she just can't resist . . .
Kennedy Sinclair never dreamed she'd own a pie shop and an orchard in a small town like Destiny Bay. But nestled between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean, it's the perfect place to cross something off her "Life's short so eat the icing first" list and start her life over from scratch. Her shop, Sweetie Pies, is famous for its hot, flaky apple turnovers and sinfully delicious deep dish pie. For Kennedy though, nothing is more enticing than the tall, strapping slice of temptation who keeps coming back for more.

Luke Callahan is determined to make his hard cider business a success. With his beloved father's cider recipe and the opportunity of a lifetime in his grasp, he'll stop at nothing to get this deal done. There's just one catch: he needs Kennedy's apples. At first, he thinks it'll be as easy as pie to charm those apples right off her trees. But Kennedy isn't falling for his tender charms or his wicked ways. When the negotiations start heating up, so do the feelings they have for each other. And it takes just one kiss to seal the deal . . .

My Thoughts:

When Kennedy Sinclair finds her fiance playing tango with a dance instructor Kenndy packs her stuff and heads to her home where her grandmother lives.  Her grandmother convinces Kennedy to take a deal of a lifetime owning her own pie shop and relocating to Destiny Bay.  When Kennedy gets there she learns that not everything is what it seemed and now Kennedy has a make it or break it type situation.

Kennedy also meets Luke Callahan whose been away and is working on making his business of hard cider a success what Luke didn't count on was the cute pie shop owner owning the apples he needs.  Of course that doesn't stop Luke from falling for Kennedy.  Will the second time with romance be the charm for Kennedy?

I love reading about Destiny Bay and learning about Luke, his mother Paula and his aunt Fi.  Paula and Fi are spunky and in alot of ways really blunt and to the point They teach Kennedy everything they can including what helps pie be so great.  I can see alot of this series being as great as Sherryl Woods, Robyn Carr and many others such a great small town romance!
