The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Café by Mary Simses


Just before her beloved grandmother dies, New Yorker Ellen Branford promises her she’ll deliver a letter to the old woman’s former flame in smalltown Beacon, Maine. Upon arrival, Ellen earns unwelcome celebrity status after she nearly drowns, then inexplicably locks lips with the local heartthrob who comes to her rescue. What was supposed to be a quick overnight trip turns into a week-long exploration of her grandmother’s past — and a tempting flirtation. How will it affect Ellen’s future with her fiancé, who’s holding down the fort in Manhattan?
