To preserve his sick brother’s travel business, retired pro athlete, Oliver Pike, would do far more. But then weather intervenes, forcing the tour bus off-route into the small mountain town of Harmony, Alberta.
In the hold of the bus, amid the walkers and luggage, lies a half-frozen stowaway. Page Maddux is commitment-averse and obviously lacking in common sense. Once revived, she’s also the person Oliver must depend upon to help him keep the “oldsters,” as she calls them, out of harm’s way.
When their week together is over, will Harmony recover from the group's escapades? And what of Oliver’s heart?
This standalone novel is book 2 in a 12-book series of sweet-to-warm contemporary romances written by different authors, but set in a fictional small town in the Canadian Rockies. It features a happy-ever-after and shenanigans that would be at home in a screwball comedy like those staring Cary Grant or Katharine Hepburn.
