Steffie Wyler is a successful business woman in her home
town of St. Dennis, with her own ice cream shop, Scoop.
Steffie enjoys making new flavors for all of her friends and
family to try. The only thing missing in her life is the
man of her dreams, Wade MacGregor, her brother's best
friend. Wade left town before Steffie could properly
express her feelings and though Steffie conned Wade to take
her to her senior prom, she has yet to experience Wade to
the fullest. Wade comes back home for a wedding and Steffie
feels those sparks she knew were there but life is always
getting in the way. Well this time isn't any different,
Wade takes off in the middle of the reception without a
word, leaving Steffie to decide that Wade was never meant to
be apart of her life. That is until he shows up in town
again with a surprise of a lifetime.
Wade MacGregor has always thought his best friend's sister,
Steffie, should be completely off limits. Wade usually
follows that rule except Steffie somehow convinces him to
attend her senior prom which opens his eyes but Wade needs
to finish college and Steffie is still too young for him.
Wade finally returns home for a wedding reception and
decides to test out his feelings for Steffie, unfortunately
Wade is called away before he can do anything, leaving
Steffie high and dry once again. Tragedy strikes Wade's
friend and business partner leaving Wade with more
responsibility than he is ready for; Wade knows that making
a home in St Dennis is the only possible solution. To make
his life perfect would be to convince Steffie that she needs
to be part of his life. Hopefully he didn't run one too
Mariah Stewart's third book in the Chesapeake Diaries
series, ALMOST HOME, is fun, witty, romantic, and
entertaining as all get out. Stewart has a way of winding
her characters around your heart to keep the pages turning
hoping the words never end. Awesome read!
When she was young, Steffie Wyler always knew exactly what
she wanted to do with her life: 1. Make ice cream. 2. Marry
the coolest boy in town. 3. Live happily ever after. These
days, Steffie is the proud owner of One Scoop or Two, a
wildly popular ice cream parlor. But the cool guy left town
right after high school, before they could scratch the
surface of their mutual attraction to see what, if anything,
lay beneath. Steffieâ€™s made a great life for herself in St.
Dennis, but true love has never come knocking.
Wade MacGregor left for college in Texas and remained there
to start a successful business with his best friend, Robin
Kennedy, but heâ€™s always felt something was missing. Then
life throws him a curveball: A third partner has robbed the
company blind, and Robin has diedâ€”but not before entrusting
Wade with a precious secret. Now back in St. Dennis, Wadeâ€™s
determined to do whatever it takes to protect his friendâ€™s
legacyâ€”and to figure out, once and for all, if the sparks
that fly whenever heâ€™s with Steffie are just temporary
fireworks or the lights in the window leading him home.
