A stubborn business owner, a volunteer firefighter, a forgotten past, and an arsonist. Is it a recipe for love or disaster?

Élodie Paradis won’t let two devastating fires and a theft stand in her way. She’s set on keeping her family’s Sugar Bush running like it has for one hundred years. She needs to hire a contractor to rebuild the cabin. The only available builder is a man she refuses to trust. He’s burned her twice before, and she’s fresh out of forgiveness.

Bastian Roy is fighting hard to leave his philandering reputation behind. As a volunteer firefighter, he strives to be a respected Eastwood resident. The perfect opportunity comes knocking when the town’s jewel needs to be rebuilt. If he can figure out what grudge Élodie holds against him, it will be the best job to solidify his family legacy.

Tensions run hot between them, slipping from prejudice to friendship. Together, they’ll build something new. But relationships are fragile when they’re built on a shaky past. Especially when tragedy lurks just around the corner.

This small-town enemies-to-lovers slow burn is the first book in the Caribou River series but can be read as a standalone.
