Chef Lindsey Solberg agrees to cater the church's Valentine's Day fundraising banquet as a favor to her teen sister, but she's shocked to discover the bad boy from her high school days is now Riverbend's youth pastor. Seriously? How could he have changed that much? Nick Harrison has prayed for years for an opportunity to make amends. Now Lindsey's back in Riverbend and won't give him the time of day. What's a guy to do except leave a trail of gifts from a secret admirer?
Lindsey's heart takes a beating when she realizes the boy who was never good enough is now a far better man than she deserves.
Welcome to Riverbend!
Riverbend, BC, is the quaint Canadian town you wish you were from, where everyone knows everyone, seasons are celebrated, and love is in the air. Look for more Riverbend Romance Novellas through 2015. Pinky Promise is coming in April.
The Riverbend Romance Novellas are a series of contemporary Christian romance stories. These inspirational romance novellas are heart-warming shorter reads with true-to-life (but fictional) characters who face challenges in finding their one true love.
Madison swept a bow, handing the package over. "Here you go, sister dear."
The paper crinkled in Lindsey's hand. Something soft, not in a box. Her name was scrawled across the package with a black marker. Bold. What could it be? And from whom?
"Open it already!" Madison rocked on the balls of her feet.
Lindsey slipped the string off the package and parted the tape along the edge. She pulled the paper back until something pink and fuzzy was revealed. She lifted it up. A pair of soft mittens? That was sweet, but where had they come from?
A piece of paper drifted to the floor, and Madison pounced then unfolded it. Her eyes widened, and she clutched the paper to her chest. "Oh, how romantic!"
The drama team didn't know what they were missing without her sister. Lindsey held her hand out until Madison relinquished the note.
The paper appeared to be from a memo pad, pink with red hearts around the edges. She raised her eyebrows. Seriously?
Cold hands, warm heart.
She turned it over. Nothing. No hint of the sender.
"I bet it's from Pastor Nick."
Lindsey dipped her head to glare at her sister. "I bet it isn't." Nick Harrison wasn't a romantic kind of guy. Not the Nick she remembered, for sure. Get a girl's hopes up, then dash them. Maybe it was him. Maybe he was doing it again.
