New Leaf (Mystic Creek #2) by Catherine Anderson
When Taffeta Brown was viciously betrayed by her wealthy husband, she lost everything—including custody of their daughter, Sarah. Now that Taffy has moved to Mystic Creek, Oregon, to start over, she unexpectedly meets the one man who might help her get Sarah back.
Barney Sterling, a local lawman, finds himself drawn to the lovely, guarded Taffy, but he’s stunned by her proposition—that they marry immediately to improve her chances of regaining custody of her daughter. Barney takes marriage too seriously to commit himself to a woman he hardly knows. Yet soon his sympathies fall with the desperate Taffy, and pretending to be in love becomes the easiest part of the plan. But they have no idea what they’re up against, or what they’re willing to risk to make a miracle come true in Mystic Creek.
New Leaf is so precious. I love Mystic Creek. I love Taff and Barney, I love the redeeming and clearing your past and finding yourself and a happy ending Catherine brings so much to the table this time with Taffy's secret background and our Fife silliness. I love all her characters its fun its warm its a town you wish still existed today. I had a great time reading this book, it really helped cheer me up during a down period in the holiday season.
Thank you Catherine for a fantastic read.
