Perfect for fans of Kristan Higgins, Susan Wiggs, and Barbara O'Neal--Too Close To Home is a novel about food, sisterhood, and love set in the fictional mountain town of Woodbine Valley, North Carolina.
After a bad breakup Eowyn Murphy heads to her parents’ inn in the mountains of North Carolina, but instead of the pampering she wants, she’s handed a tool belt. The inn needs massive renovations and her parents put Eowyn in charge. Which doesn't make her relationships with her sisters--one who manages the inn--any easier.
Things go from bad to worse when her parents leave her with Sam Gamble. The gangly hall monitor who gave her pink slips in high school is now a rule-abiding cop moonlighting as a contractor. And he knows just how to get under her skin.
Sam came home to Woodbine Valley when his mom got sick, but part-time hours as a small town cop can’t make a dent in her medical bills. Construction jobs do help, and when the opportunity to renovate a local inn comes up, he jumps at the chance to earn the money his mom pretends not to need. The only problem: the job comes with a hefty side of complications in the form of Eowyn, a girl from his past who’s always tempted him to break all the rules.
Will Eowyn's and Sam’s differences lead to disaster? Or can they learn to work together and open their hearts to love?
Too Close To Home is a part of the Woodbine Valley series, but can be read as a standalone novel. Although you'll see some familiar characters and places, you don't need to read other Woodbine Valley novels to enjoy this one.
