THE COTTAGE ON THE CORNER is a wonderful story of friends,
romance and second chances. Shirlee McCoy's writing style
flows smoothly and
this is a very easy story to get lost in. The small town
setting and the
characters made this a sweet read, but not a sappy read.
Shirlee McCoy is
a very descriptive writer and while reading THE COTTAGE ON
CORNER I felt like I was right there in Apple Valley. I
wanted to get the low
down on all the local gossip. I was instantly caught up in
Max's lives and Zuzu stole my heart. The chemistry between
Charlotte was perfect and funny through out the story.
Apple Valley sounds
like a small town I would want to live. The townspeople are
funny in their own way.
In Apple Valley, Washington, true friends are never far,
neighbors can help heal the loneliest hearts--and longed-for
dreams can unexpectedly become real . . .
Charlotte Garrison's second chance is falling into place
just like she's carefully planned. A few more sales of her
heavenly sweets and she'll be able to turn the empty shop on
Main Street into her own bakery--a plan much more sensible
than ever again risking her heart. But when a rambunctious
three-year-old girl lands on town deputy Max Stanford's
doorstep, Charlotte finds helping the good-looking deputy
care for her is sparking the most impossible dreams . . .
Max has never been much for settling down. But while he
finds out if little Zuzu is really his daughter, Charlotte's
warmth and caring makes him want to prove he's worthy of her
trust. And as they struggle to come to terms with their
pasts, Max will do whatever it takes to show Charlotte home
is where dreams come true--and he and Zuzu are all the love
and home she'll ever need.
