Allison has lived in the same town all her life. As an unwed mother she has endured the whispers and the comments behind her back. Today her life is much different. She keeps to herself taking care of her mother and her children and doing her job as a waitress/manager of the local diner.
When the diner comes up for sale she takes all her savings she was going to use to get out of the rat hole she lives in and move into a new home to purchase the diner, knowing in the long run it would be the better choice for her and her children. There are people, however, who don't want to see her succeed and they will do anything to close her new business down.
Miguel falls in love at first sight when he meets Allison. Against his and her better judgement he pursues her. Having been burned before he knows it is dangerous to let her steal his heart, but he believes she is worth it. He'll keep their encounters secret for a while, but not forever.
Allison has a decision to make, trust in Miguel or to set him free...
Nicely written story featuring an older woman and younger man scenario, as well as two people with ethnic differences. Well written suspenseful plot offering good conflict and a realistic drama.
Will Miguel’s whispered midnight promises ever see the light of day?
Content with her job as small town waitress and roll of single mom, Allison believes she's better off without a man. In her opinion, all they bring is chaos - and that includes the father of her child. So why has Miguel’s arrival shaken her so badly?
It's not easy for Allison to keep Miguel a secret with someone set on shutting down her bakery and the local sheriff believing she harbors a vendetta against the town because of her tormented past.
Keeping her secrets and clearing her name just might be harder than Allison ever imagined.
Content warning; This book contains cold family situations during the day and hot nights.
