"I know you read it, you know you read it. You wouldn't be making cinnamon bread if you hadn't read it."
Four years ago, Ellie had her heart broken by Lane Walker. Unable to deal with the tabloids and public exposure his new-found fame involved, she left. But she left without telling him she was pregnant. When he didn't come after her, she believed she had made the right choice. But now the tabloids have Lane engaged, the same day he shows up on her doorstep. How will he react when he finds out he has a daughter? And will she have the willpower to stay away from him? Lane Walker never fell out of love with Ellie, even after she had abandoned him. He wants to have her back, and is taken aback at the existence of his daughter. Perhaps they can be a family - but only if he can convince Ellie to trust him. If not, will he lose her again?
My Opinion: It thought this was a good read, though a bit unexpected. Without a ton of action in the book, the author still maintains much of the momentum by expertly reliving the past and keeping their struggles current and interesting. There was no boring repetition, but rather a more mature look back on past mistakes and the realization that they must try to forgive and move on. Ellie was a good character, torn by love and abandonment. Lane was sensitive and caring, though determined to make her trust him. Their love is sweet and fun, with enough other characters and twists to keep things interesting. Overall, a good book.
