Review: A Slice of Summer (Silver Falls, #2) by Melissa McClone

 First, he ghosted her. Now, he has a proposition…

Taryn Lawson needs more customers in her bakery to prove she’s capable of taking over the family business. The summer fair is the perfect opportunity to jump-start her vision with a specialized booth showcasing her creative desserts. Despite her fierce work ethic, she needs help to build her booth in time. Unfortunately, the only person available is the handsome attorney who played with her heart last Christmas.

Trial attorney Garrett Andrews regrets not contacting the pretty baker he dated during his last holiday vacation. But he had his reasons and is finally ready to make amends. When he returns to town for his sister’s wedding, Garrett gets his second chance when Taryn needs help building her booth.

Working together reignites the spark, but Taryn is aware the clock is ticking. Will they realize what they have is special before it’s too late, or will their second chance at love once again slip through their fingers?


My Review:

A super sweet romance.

The town of Silver Falls is not only gearing up for their summer fair, but there is also a big wedding about to take place.  Garrett Andrews is back in town for his sister Callie’s wedding and he will have to face the girl he ghosted six months ago, Taryn Lawson.  Taryn runs her family bakery and has been dealing with a big loss of customers due to a new bakery that recently opened.  She needs to make the best booth for the Silver Falls Summer Festival if she plans to get customers back in her bakery.  But when she discovers her booth has been ruined by a leak in her shed, she panics.  Garrett is quick to help Taryn build a new booth.  Working together brings back the old memories they shared during Garrett’s stay in Silver Falls during Christmas.  But, can Taryn trust her heart to stay professional only?  She knows once the wedding is over, Garrett will be leaving town again.

This was a fun and sweet story with small-town charm.  I enjoyed every minute of Taryn and Garrett’s reunion, along with catching up with Callie and Brandt, from The Christmas Window. And, I can't end without mentioning that gorgeous cover.
