Sweeter Than Honey
A talented baker and a small-town sheriff forced into a fake relationship decide whether to take a chance on love in this delectable romance from Joy Avery.
Baker extraordinaire Rylee Harris has a recipe for everything--except love. It's been five years since she lost her husband, but romance is still a struggle for Rylee. In her small hamlet of Honey Hill, North Carolina, Rylee knows she'll be the talk of the town when she finds someone new.
To ease her mother's worries about her love life, Rylee impulsively invents a fake relationship with the only man who's caught her eye: the town sheriff, Canten Barnes. It's supposed to be a secret, but secrets don't last long in Honey Hill. One bit of gossip leads to another, and soon the whole town thinks Rylee and Canten are an item.
As Rylee and Canten embark on a make-believe relationship to save face, they slowly realize that their feelings for each other aren't fake at all. Can Rylee and Canten keep the charade going--or will the town's prized baker and respected lawman take a real chance on love?
