Perfect for fans of Maeve Binchy' - Candis. Debbie Macomber welcomes you to the little town with love in the air! Maddy Washburn needs a change in her life. She's seen her best friend Lindsay Snyder settle into the little community of Buffalo Valley and how the magic of the town has imbued her spirit. So Maddy decides to up sticks and join her, taking over the dilapidated grocery store and throwing all her energy into reviving the business. In an attempt to increase trade Maddy starts a delivery service and in the process meets rancher Jeb McKenna - a solitary man who's learned to endure hardship. Isolated is how he likes his life, though Maddy, unafraid of his surly attitude, finds herself drawn to Jeb - but there's only so much rejection a girl can take! Buffalo Valley is surviving on a lot of luck as it starts to flourish once more; perhaps some of that will rub off on Maddy...

Great book. Debbie Macomber wrote a wonderfful Dakota trilogy. I am so happy I was able to find the only one that I didn't have.

This is the second book of a three book series. In order to make sense of the third book, must read the second. Characters from the first book continue in a peripheral way and secondary characters in the first book move into the main story in the second. I'm enjoying the story of how everything fits together to the story. Great book for an afternoon of putting your feet up and spending some relaxation time.
Publishers Weekly, 2000-07-31 Buffalo Valley's depressed economy has taken a turn toward recovery in this second installment in Macomber's trilogy set in contemporary North Dakota. Buffalo Bob's bar is flourishing, Rachel's weekend pizza delivery has become a full-fledged restaurant and Sarah has a waiting list for her quilting classes. But the main attraction this time is Maddy Washburn, who bought the failing grocery store and, through clever marketing, has revived the town's interest in shopping locally. One of Maddy's new customers is Jeb McKenna, a farmer who lost his leg from a tractor accident four years before and now prefers a reclusive existence on his ranch to socializing in town. A blizzard sends Maddy into Jeb's arms long enough for the pair to fall in love (thus importing another romance from Dakota Born), but Jeb still considers himself a cripple and refuses to allow Maddy a permanent place in his life. Macomber closes book two with a cliffhanger, leaving readers anxiously awaiting the final installment to this first-rate series. (Aug.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
