Almost ten years ago, Samantha Redding swore off her hometown of Brandywood, Maryland. Sure, she misses her family, but she's over the gossip and drama that came with small-town living. Besides, she has the photography career she always dreamed of now.
Then her mom gets sick. Faced with a long stay at home, Sam is forced to relocate a holiday photoshoot to Brandywood to meet a tight work deadline. Only problem is, she needs help from the townspeople she's spent years distancing herself from. Strangely, Sam finds an ally in someone who kept her at arm's length all his life: brooding and sarcastic Garrett Doyle-the guy that dumped her best friend at the altar years before.
But Sam never knew Garrett tried to keep his distance because he was really in love with her. And he's just come back to town after trying to get his life together. Garrett knows he ought to stay away-but the sight of her brings back all those old feelings. Anyway, she's leaving Brandywood soon enough, and then he can go back to trying to forget her.
. . . except, Sam's about to discover that everything she thought she knew about home-and Garrett-was wrong.
A contemporary romance with steamy, open door romance and tear-jerking moments about facing the past and finding forgiveness, All This Time is the first book in the Brandywood Small Town Romance Series. CW: alcoholism, abuse, cancer, language
