GoodReads Summary:
Welcome to Apple Grove, Ohio (population 597) where everyone has your best interests at heart... Love is in the air and the proof is in the painted proposal on the water tower. Every girl in Apple Grove looks forward to her beau following town tradition by getting on a ladder and making his love for her public.

When Daniel Eagan moves to town, his matchmaking neighbors direct him toward the Mulcahys. But when the petite and winsome Megan arrives on his doorstep in khakis and a tool belt, sparks start flying between the new guy and the hometown girl...

My Review:
5-stars! I loved this book and fully intend to read the other two in the trilogy.

Meghan works with her father and two sisters as the town's handyman. All 597 people of Apple Grove, OH know the Mulcahys, their past and present. There are no secrets in this tiny town.

Trudi owns the garden center and sits on the town council. She put in a good word for the new phys ed teacher and soccer coach, who just happens to be her great nephew, Daniel. Daniel's from the city. Not used to small town ways, but he's adjusting fast.

Meghan had her heart set on Jimmy. But Jimmy got a pro football contract and only uses Meghan as a hook-up when he drops into town to visit his mother.

Dan's been dumped by a cheating ex-fiance and ex-bff who hooked up. And she flushed the diamond ring!

Are they ready to move on? You bet! Check out the message on the water tower! Yes, that's a spoiler, but this is an HEA romance that you know the ending before you begin, so I felt you could handle it.

One criticism in all this is RASP. The author seems to need a list of words to use since she got stuck on the word rasp, so here are a few alternatives for her: groan, screech, squeak, grate, wheeze, grate, grind, scrape, bleat.

And the next two books I need to read!
