The only life Gracie has ever known has been the nursing home and the residents who are like family to her. Now, she risks losing it all and her friends scattering to different homes if she can’t come up with the money to save the business.
Between caring for his ailing mother and running the family farm, Brandt is stretched thin. Too thin. When his mother begs him to enter a local scavenger hunt, win the prize money, and convert the farm into an orchard, he knows he can’t refuse her anything, so he reluctantly agrees.
While seeking clues to the scavenger hunt, Gracie and Brandt keep bumping into each other. Gracie’s always had a crush on him that keeps her from stringing two coherent words together. Brandt doesn’t understand why she dislikes him so much she won’t even talk to him. If the nursing home residents would settle down and stop getting into crazy shenanigans long enough, the two might figure out that they have more than a little in common.
This was a good one. Gracie loves the people in the nursing home like family. It crushes her that in the next 60 days, she has to come up with the money to make good on her debt or these people will have to find somewhere else to go. Brandt has plenty to do without his mother's crazy idea he needs to go on the scavenger hunt. With both Gracie and Brandt need the money from the scavenger hunt to keep their lives afloat, they keep running into each other. Maybe they will find more than just money along the way though.
Brandt is a very family oriented man, taking care of his mom and I love that. Also the way Gracie loves her charges at the nursing home is warming. Each of them have their own place in her heart and some of them quite a bit of attitude! The fact that God and faith is woven through the story was wonderful to me. Watching the story unfold made me smile.
It was a 4/5 for me. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
