Blurb: He’s hot. He’s dangerous. And he can’t remember anything.
As the owner of Apple’n Pies, Joe Applin leads a quiet, uneventful life, content to spend his days serving customers who come from all over to eat his delicious homemade pies. Along with his motley crew—Bea, Elsie, and Donnie—Joe couldn’t be happier in his little kingdom of baked goods and java.
Experience has taught Joe that love is overrated—and at times dangerous. He has no intention of repeating past mistakes. But then he meets a mysterious, handsome man with amnesia, and Joe can’t deny something sweet is in the works. He isn’t one to take risks, not with his heart and certainly not with his life, but the more time he spends with the man he knows as Tom, the closer he is to losing both.
Review: Different authors have different strong points. One of Charlie Cochet’s strong points is building an arsenal of amazing supporting characters who elevate their books to greatness. Joe Applin is one of the most lovable characters I have ever encountered. I want to take him home with me and keep him. I want to work at Apple ’n Pies so I can watch the train wreck that is Bea, Elsie, and Donnie.
Now, Tom I want to take him home for a completely difference reason…::wink:: Together, all these characters, and an amazing mystery, equal a sweet and suspenseful love story that had me rooting for Joe from the beginning. I started this book smiling and that just turned into simple joy.
Narration: John Solo is narrating a lot of the Dreamspun Desires books, and is doing a wonderful job of it. I liked his voice much more for this story than the few previous to this. He is a very talented narrator.
