Helpful Hints


Her feet say it’s time to move on. Her heart says something else…

Lori Black’s nomadic childhood in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with her lumberjack father has left its mark. She is a loner born and bred, a woman of few needs and fewer words.

Content with her life, she’s never felt the urge to put down roots—until she takes on a landscaping job for Slade Ryan. Slade has the strange ability to make her feel like she’s rediscovering herself.

Slade’s roots go deep in his home community, and he’s committed to restoring an historic farmhouse and rejuvenating the surrounding land. As he turns the project over to Lori’s capable hands, he finds himself compelled to show her how good it could be to settle down.

As love blossoms amid the rich soil and lush vegetation, something that feels warm, vibrant, and permanent begins to grow. But the only way it can thrive is if Slade can convince Lori how beautiful it could be to share her life—and her heart—with him.

This book was previously published in 1985.

Warning: Sweet romance ahead! But not quite everything is coming up roses…
