This a modern-day Cinderalla-like story. I love stories like that. They are captivating and keep you reading until you have completed the book.
Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals. She wants to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania.
And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the policy have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.
Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame, and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, especially on national stage. So, she hides her identity. It works, but only for a time.
But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. There’s an immediate connection, and its more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. Its something e=neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle, something she is afraid to trust.
Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine–perhaps before the spark fades?
What a great story!
