Annie Romano brings her young daughter home to Fairhaven, Washington, hoping to find a part-time job at a local bakery, but instead finds herself acting as live-in caregiver to her high school crushs grandmother (the bakery owner). Alex offers to help stay and settle his grandmother, but hes a workaholic and must eventually return to San Francisco and continuing hammering out business deals.

Annie and Alex make a charming couple, but Annie has trust issues stemming from the fact that her daughters father abandoned them both when Annie told him she was pregnant. Annie later learns that hes been convicted of embezzlement and faces years in prison, and Annie doesnt know how to explain this to her daughter.

While Alex is honest and trustworthy (traits you dont normally find in cutthroat businessmen), Annie makes a couple of mistakes: she sees a caller on his cell phone (Tiffany) and immediately assumes Alex has a girlfriend. Also, a local contractor working on the bakery flirts with Annie and she gives him no reason to suspect that she and Alex are becoming more than friends. She also listens in one a phone conversation that Alex has with a co-worker, the aforementioned Tiffany.
I was baffled by her behavior. Is Annie going to spend the rest of her life checking Alexs emails and texts? She is the one giving Alex reasons not to trust her, and yet all she can do is rail against her ex because hes untrustworthy? Pot, meet kettle.

Alex is offered a job in Chicago and Annie is angry at him for going there for an interview. However, the wise grandmother indicates that if she really loves Alex, she might consider relocating there to be with him. Its one of the few instances where somebody tells off the self-righteous heroine in these books (who is generally convinced that small town life trumps big city life) and Annie realizes how selfish she has been behaving. Recommended for its realistic portrayal of relationships.
