Love can find you when you least expect it...

Fireworks. That's what innkeeper Rebecca Campbell wants. And no matter how close their friendship, she and her former fianc never shared that. Now, with a broken engagement behind her and a promise she's vowed to keep, Rebecca is determined to make a new life for herself in Emerald Lake. She just never expected sparks to fly this quickly...

Coming home and falling for his little brother's girl wasn't Sean Murphy's plan. Rebecca's sweet smile and kind heart make Sean feel at home-something he's never felt before. But a secret lingers between them, and no matter how powerful their attraction, Sean can't give his heart to a woman he can't trust. Or can he? As the days pass, Rebecca and Sean find it harder and harder to deny their desire. And they are in beautiful Emerald Lake, the perfect place for falling in love ...
Rebecca at times came across as a little too good to be true, and that made it difficult to relate to her. She was constantly saying whatever came to mind without any thought, and keeping secrets for her friends caused her great pains.

These things about her made it pretty difficult for me to connect with her or care about the outcome of her relationships. The conflict between her and Sean was easily spotted. With his issues with trusting women, due to a secret he's been keeping since childhood, and Rebecca inability to keep a secret, you just knew there would be problems. So of course when Sean finally opens up and learns to trust Rebecca, she spills his secret. I didn't understand why he thought it was a wise idea to trust her with it in the first place.

Of course they managed to work it all out in the end.
