Ethan Gallagher is a firefighter in Darling, Vermont, who followed tradition and pledged his love on the Kissing Bridge to ensure lifelong happiness. A few years later, he s a widower with two rambunctious boys who no longer believes in magic. But even he has to admit that free-spirited Willow Dunaway fills him with wonder and an attraction he cannot deny.
Willow s come back to Darling a different girl than the one who left after high school. Overcoming her past and owning her own business has made her into a strong, independent woman. Single dad Ethan appeals to her in a way she didn t expect, even though settling down is the last thing on her mind. But after fire destroys the local food bank, the town rallies, and a fling between Ethan and Willow leads to unintended consequences. Can they find a way out of their heartbreak to make a home in each other s hearts?"

Alwards charming and down-to-earth second Kissing Bridge contemporary will have readers wishing they could book a weekend getaway to picturesque and romantic Darling, Vt. Willow Dunaway, a devotee of yoga and Zen, returned to her hometown after a few years away to open the Purple Pig Café, which specializes in home-cooked all-natural foods. Now that her best friend, Laurel, has married Aiden Gallagher (in Somebody like You), she finds herself spending more time with the entire Gallagher family, including firefighter Ethan, a widower. Ethan is weighed down by responsibilities to his two young sons and feels immense guilt for relying on family help to care for them during his shifts. He thinks hippie Willow is too flighty, but hes drawn to her free spirit, her generosity to their community, and her delightful manner with his boys. Soon Ethan begins to realize that he can find happiness again. Alward introduces themes of reproductive choice and handles them thoughtfully and without judgment. Readers will root for her convincing characters, whose internal and external problems feel real. Agent: Karen Solem, Spencerhill Associates. (Mar.)
