The Neighbor's Secret by Kimberley Montpetit
After being left at the altar on her wedding day, businesswoman Allie Stirckland returns to her hometown of Heartland Cove to recover and regroup her broken heart. Heartland Cove County is a small town of Victorian homes, quirky citizens, and a booming tourist industry where people flock to see the longest covered bridge in the world.
Grieving the trauma of her ex-fiance's betrayal and overwhelmed by her clingy mother and the fry truck family business, Allie rents the first available house she can find. But on the very first night, Allie's peace and quiet is violated by an unexpected intruder who breaks into the house while she's taking a bubble bath. An intruder with an alias and old ties to Heartland Cove.
Forced by unusual circumstances to share the same rental house, Allie's suspicions of the man grow- even as she finds herself attracted to him. But is Ethan Smith merely a freelancer on a magazine assignment taking photos of the famous Heartland Cove Bridge- or is he an undercover spy for the mayor who wants to ruin the charming town by running a new highway through for his own profit?
Is Ethan Smith friend or foe? Enemy or lover?
This is about a girl named Allie who was left at the altar, so she left where she was living to go back to her hometown to take a break and recover. She meets a very handsome guy named Ethan and under unusual circumstances they are "neighbor's." He is very kind, giving, and definitely a gentleman. I understand that she would be very upset and heart broken but she was a little too grouchy. She was a bit of a brat at first. They both kept secrets and as the story unfolds those secrets are shared. Ethan and Allie had strong chemistry throughout the book. There are some twists and things that happen with the ex fiance that keep you reading. Just a little warning that there are some swear words, and some steamy kisses and scenes. There were a couple editing things that were a little weird. Overall I liked this book and I look forward to reading more by Kimberley.
