About the Book:
When she was young, Steffie Wyler always knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life: 1. Make ice cream. 2. Marry the coolest boy in town. 3. Live happily ever after. These days, Steffie is the proud owner of One Scoop or Two, a wildly popular ice cream parlor. But the cool guy left town right after high school, before they could scratch the surface of their mutual attraction to see what, if anything, lay beneath. Steffie’s made a great life for herself in St. Dennis, but true love has never come knocking.

Wade MacGregor left for college in Texas and remained there to start a successful business with his best friend, Robin Kennedy, but he’s always felt something was missing. Then life throws him a curveball: A third partner has robbed the company blind, and Robin has died—but not before entrusting Wade with a precious secret. Now back in St. Dennis, Wade’s determined to do whatever it takes to protect his friend’s legacy—and to figure out, once and for all, if the sparks that fly whenever he’s with Steffie are just temporary fireworks or the lights in the window leading him home.

My Review:
This may be my favorite Mariah Stewart book yet! This is her 3rd book in her Chesapeake Diaries series and it was FANTASTIC! Very romantic compared to the first two. There were definitely a lot of sparks flying in this book, filled with Steffie and Wade’s stories. Once again, Mariah Stewart brought her amazing writing power to her fans.

Steffie wanted nothing more in life than to make and serve her ice cream, and of course fall in love with Dallas’ little brother Wade MacGregor. And she did just that, but he moved away to Texas to college. Her dreams are still the same after all these years.

Wade comes back from Texas to attend Beck and Mia’s wedding (see Home Again) and WOW! The sparks sure fly when he sets his eyes on the gorgeous Steffie, the young girl from his past who wanted him as a prom date. His best friend’s little sister is all grown up and man! Does he ever wish he could be her dream guy!

Steffie and Wade are PERFECT for each but Wade is too stubborn! I loved these characters….have loved them since Home Again…..and I wanted the best for them. It was definitely a book filled with twists and turns, some expected, and some not so expected, as I followed along side these amazing characters! It was like coming home again, watching my family and friends. I love that feeling!

I definitely recommend this book with 5 stars and more! It’s tender, it’s romantic, it’s spark filled, it’s all around FANTABULOUS! Mariah Stewart will quickly become your favorite author if you are new to her work, and her established fans will welcome this GREATASTIC addition to her latest series. I can’t wait for more work from this terrific author!
