Fondness for the Baker
(Small Town Matchmaker)
Their ages working against them, will Martha and Joel open themselves to a second chance at love?
Widowed at a young age, Martha Cooley has kept to herself for far too long. She admired Crystal Springs baker from afar, and they even got together once. Pressure from the town matchmaker became unbearable, and the two called it off.
Unassuming baker, Joel Evans has loved Martha for as long as he can remember. Beaten to the punch by another man, he stepped away. When the time was right, he courted the woman he believed to be his soulmate. After undue outside interference, their relationship soured. Now Joel wants to give it another chance. He’s willing to risk everything to court the quiet widow, but isn’t convinced of her commitment.
Will they ever get another chance to be together? Or will their second chance pass them by?
