Synopsis: Dani Sullivan has come to Lake Bliss to write her latest cookbook…and to see if the baby she gave up for adoption eight years ago is happy. When she’s done with her reconnaissance, she plans to return to Detroit without any doubts about past decisions. But when she sees her little boy—indeed happy despite living with his single dad—she finds she can’t keep her promise to stay away…from her son or from his flirtatious father, who has no idea of her true identity.
Recently divorced sheriff Matt Reagan is ready for a new relationship, but he doesn’t want short-term—his son needs permanence, and so does Matt’s heart. Unfortunately, it’s the smart-mouthed and sinfully sexy Ms. Sullivan who catches his eye. But when Matt learns Dani’s secrets, will he still want her to stay? Or will her chance for love last just for the summer?

• What’s your favorite thing to do with Larry?
He likes fetching a ball. So it’s fun to see how far I can throw it and how fast he’ll chase it. He always brings it back.
• So Sam, you know you’re adopted but before meeting Dani, did you ever dream about what your real mom would be like?
I thought she’d be mean and ugly to not like a little boy enough to give him away. I learned that I was wrong. My real mom is nice…and my dad thinks she’s pretty.
• What kind of bait do you and your dad like to use to fish? I like to go fishing myself…my family definitely uses real worms!
We use worms a lot. I’m not afraid to put them on the hook by myself. We go out late at night and find our own night crawlers. Sometimes my dad buys minnows.
• What’s your favorite food that your Grandmom or Dani makes you?
Dani make awesome spaghetti. My grandma makes some kind of special chocolate cake I can have.
• Lightning round!
Hiking or swimming? Swimming in Lake Bliss!
Hanging with Dani or your father? Nowadays, I’d rather be with both of them.
