Lilies and Lies
Maddie Cutler loathes her status as baby sister to her three brothers. Fearing she may never be considered their equal, she goes out of her way to prove that she's capable of managing the family business. But, her careless accident shuts down Clover Cove's business district and makes Maddie the laughingstock of her family–and Clover Cove.
Gunnar Holt spends weekdays managing his garage and weekends as youth leader for a small church. But Gunnar has a secret...a mistake from the past that nearly stole his future.

As Gunnar falls for Maddie, he must tell her about his past. But, will the secret push Maddie away or pull them closer together?
