Book Information:

The town of Cherry Falls is a lot of things, but exciting is not one of them. Which makes my job as a reporter for the town paper really freaking hard.
The front page of the last issue featured a story about a raccoon who looked like Samuel L. Jackson. Not exactly thrilling.
But when I'm forced to cover the new albino calf on the Cherry Blossom Ranch...
I find out the meaning of thrilling. And it's not the baby cow. It's the rough, wild-looking rancher, Butch Steele.
Every hair on my body stands straight up when I see the possessive way he's staring at me with those fierce dark eyes.
Now, the only story I want to know is his. And the only thing he wants is me. There's nothing this obsessed man won't do to get me.
I don't think he believes in freedom of the press, because he's about to tie me up to keep me from leaving.
If you see my editor, tell her I might miss my deadline...
Actually, tell her I'm taking the week off. This place is way too exciting to leave.

***Cherry Falls is filled with returning characters and iconic destinations that will begin to feel like family. When you leave the city, and drive into Cherry Falls, it's like you've finally come home.
The cherry on top? Each book delivers a swoon-worthy romance!
So welcome to Cherry Falls, we hope you stay awhile!

Chapter One

Daisy

“Give it to me straight, Sheriff Larson,” I say in a firm voice as I whip open my notepad and glare at him from across his desk. “I want the truth about this town.”

He cracks a smile, looking amused as he pulls out a huge donut from a brown paper bag with Bela’s Bakery written on it. My stomach starts to groan with envy when I see the pink icing and colorful sprinkles. They make the best donuts at Bela’s Bakery. Light and fluffy like sugary crack.

The Sheriff is a total sucker for them but he still manages to have abs. Maybe I should do a story on that…

“Are you on another deadline again?” he asks before taking a big bite of the donut.

“Yes,” I say with a sigh. “Do you have anything for me?”

“What do you want?”

“A story,” I say as I perk up in the chair. “A big one that will blow the corruption off this town.”

He laughs. “Corruption? Have you met Mayor McCoy? Everyone loves him.”

“What about the police force?” I ask as I narrow my eyes on him, putting on the pressure. “Any shady dealings going on behind the scenes that the people need to know about?”

“Shady dealings?” He’s trying not to laugh at me.

“Drugs? Arms dealing?” I lean in with my eyebrow up. “Murder?”

“You’ve lost your mind, Daisy.”

“Come on,” I beg. “There must be one crooked cop on your force?”

The door opens and the police captain, Connor O’Henry, walks in carrying a huge vase of colorful flowers. He has a huge smile on his face as he practically skips across the room with it.

“Look at what my daughter Poppy dropped off!” he says as he admires the beautiful flowers. “She’s working at the flower shop now. Hi, Daisy! I haven’t seen you in a while.”

“Hi, Mr. O’Henry,” I say with a smile. “Tell Poppy I said hello when you see her.” We went to school together.

He takes a daisy out of the vase and slides it behind my ear with a smile. “A daisy for Daisy.”

I watch, slumped in my chair, as he places the beautiful vase on a table and admires it. “Nothing like some gorgeous flowers to brighten up a room. Have a great day everyone!”

He leaves with a bounce in his step.

I turn back to the Sheriff with a sigh. “You were about to tell me about all of the bad, corrupt cops on your force?”

He laughs. “Oh yeah, it’s a real crime racket we got going on here as you can tell by the flowers.”

My stomach drops as I look down at my blank pad of paper. This town never has anything exciting going on, which makes my job as a reporter for the local paper really freaking hard.

“Any murders?” I’m swinging at wild pitches now.

“Murders?” Sheriff Larson repeats in disbelief before taking another bite of his donut.

“Yeah. Any families slaughtered recently or young women abducted off the street? Any suspected serial killers in the area? Something good like that?”

Now he just looks like he feels sorry for me.

“Do you know what town you’re in?”

I let out a frustrated huff of breath. “This is the most boring town on the planet!”

“Yeah, and it’s my job to keep it that way.”

I’m desperate now.

“There’s got to be something…”

Something clicks in his mind and I perk up, waiting for it.

“There’s a broken manhole cover on First Avenue.”

“Really?” I ask, intrigued. “Did someone fall in? Oh! Did someone die?”

He shakes his head as he finishes his donut.

“It’s just cracked down the middle. We’re getting a replacement tomorrow.”

I can feel a headache coming on.

“I’m competing with Netflix, Sheriff Larson. The internet, video games, books, other newspapers. I can’t put a broken manhole cover on the front page of the Cherry Falls Gazette!”

He shrugs as he licks his fingers. “No news is good news according to me and my officers.”

“We should switch jobs because it sucks for me.”

He laughs as he pulls out a delicious looking danish.

“How are you not three hundred pounds?” I ask as I get up.

“I don’t know, but it might catch up with me one day. Want a bite?”

He offers it to me, but I shake my head. “I’m heading over there now. Was Annabeth working today?”

“Yeah, she was there.”

Maybe Annabeth has something good for me. That girl knows all the town gossip. She’s my last hope, but if she has nothing, at least I’ll be able to drown my sorrows in fresh baked goods.

I thank the Sheriff for his time even though he gave me nothing to work with as usual and head over to Bela’s Bakery.

It’s a gorgeous summer day and the birds are singing in the trees along Main Street. This town is boring, but I do love it. How could I not? It’s like a Hallmark Christmas movie come to life.
