When trouble strikes...Whistle Stop pulls together
For Ella Morgan, moving to Whistle Stop is a chance to start over, put her horrific past behind her. But now she's living in a mountain cabin--in dire need of renovation--that her grandmother left her, along with a sizable tax bill. Her job teaching school isn't going to cover it. She needs cash, and soon.
Volunteer firefighter Tony Granger has returned to Whistle Stop to run the family ranch and be guardian to his orphaned nephew, Johnny. But being a single parent isn't coming easy, and he's worried sick he won't succeed with his plan to adopt the boy, especially if Johnny's grades don't improve. He needs a break, and fast.
When Ella finds out Tony doesn't have a partner for the Dancing With the Firefighters' benefit--which is offering a large cash prize--and he hits upon hiring her as Johnny's tutor, it looks like their problems might be solved. But taking dance lessons to win the competition sets alight a burning attraction between them. Can they let go and learn to trust again, or will the scars of their pasts still haunt them?
Just like with the first book in the Whistle Stop series (A Moment Love), I really liked A Moment to Dance, unfortunately it was predictable but the story was great.
Ella Morgan has come to Whistle Stop to start a new life and hopes to keep a secret she's kept guarded for a long time. She's in desperate need of money to restore her late grandmother's cabin and enters a dance competition with the most eligible bachelor in the county, Tony, in hopes of winning the prize money. Sparks fly between them but they are both hesitant to open their hearts. Tony is trying to adopt his nephew and has enough guilt of his own for the reason his nephew is orphaned. The predictability comes in that they eventually overcome their guilt and open their hearts to each other and learn to trust again and they end up together. Again, the predictability doesn't take away from the story but there's no mystery here. The characters are likable and made me want to jump inside the book and get to know them better.
