When a struggling bakery owner is rescued by a wannabe songwriter with hidden culinary talents, they discover they can make sweet harmony … if they can only learn to work together.

Rhett Foster longs to change the world with his music, yet he can’t even finish writing one song. Battered by a string of failures and disillusioned, he returns home to Portland, Oregon. While he desperately wants to create a chart-topping hit, his dad mandates a new mission: move to coastal vacation hotspot Seabrook, Washington and expand the family’s successful restaurant chain.

In danger of destroying her late parents’ legacy if she doesn’t diversify her menu, Lindsay Carmichael will try anything to save her bakery. But with a tiny budget and an injured employee who can’t work, she has no choice but to sink the last of her savings into buying a dilapidated food truck and hiring Rhett as a part-time barista. What she doesn’t know is that the handsome songwriter has a secret … one that could destroy her business and her heart.

Excerpt from Sweet Melody

The front door opened, and a twenty-something guy came in, wearing a tight-fitting black T-shirt, ripped jeans and black work boots. Huh. Definitely not a local. With his brown hair swooped upward and classic handsome features, he looked like a front man for a band. Or the cover model for a romance novel. His caramel-colored gaze found hers, so intense. A delicious tingle swept across her neck then danced around to her cheeks. She couldn’t look away even if she wanted to.

“Hi.” She squeaked out a greeting.

Quinn’s eyes widened.

“Hey.” He moved closer, his gait easy and confident. “Do you know where I might find the owner or manager?”

Lindsay couldn’t stop a frown. Did she not look qualified to be in charge? Granted, she probably seemed younger than twenty-four, in jeans and frilly apron over her yellow T-shirt. Still, he didn’t have to jump to conclusions.

“I’m she. I mean, this is her.” Oh brother. Maybe she was too young. Or he was too good-looking.

The register spat out a receipt and she tore it off then handed it to Quinn. “Will you sign this, please?”

“Sure.” Quinn scrawled her signature across the narrow slip of paper.

Lindsay shifted her attention back to the flawless stranger. “This is my bakery. How may I help you?”

“First, I’d like some coffee, and I have a few questions about the sign you’ve posted. I hear you need a barista?” He jerked his thumb over his shoulder toward the window.

Wow. That didn’t take long.

“If you’ll have a seat, I’ll be right with you.” She angled her head toward the empty cafĂ© area.

“Sweet. Thanks.” He flashed a killer smile then sat down at one of the small round tables nearby.

Mercy. Lindsay tore her gaze away. She nudged the cake a little closer to Quinn. “Please tell Noah I said happy birthday.”

“Will do.” Quinn scooped up the box, gave Lindsay a wink, then turned toward the door.

Lindsay ignored Quinn’s subtle recognition of her flustered state and tried to pull herself together with Mr. Perfect still watching her. She tucked a loose strand of hair behind her ear and skirted the counter.

He stood and extended his hand. “I’m Rhett Foster.”

“Lindsay Carmichael.” His palm was warm against hers. Hopefully he’d overlook the clamminess of her grip.

About the Author

Heidi secretly dreamed of writing a book for most of her childhood, but a particularly painful rejection letter in middle school convinced her to tuck that dream away. Instead, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington and a Master’s Degree in Athletic Training from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. After a brief career as a Certified Athletic Trainer, Heidi married her husband Steve, then she dusted off her big dream of becoming a published author and launched her first contemporary romance into the world in 2014. A huge fan of coffee, dark chocolate, and happily ever after, Heidi currently lives in North Carolina with Steve, three active boys and one amazing Goldendoodle.
