A Man for the Summer by Allys Reid
A lonely widow and her mother are nearly broke—and desperate. Calista Blake and her mother, Maisie, living in a run-down hotel on the Oregon coast, make a last-ditch effort to save their property. They advertise for a handyman, someone to fix up the place before the tourist season begins, in the hope that they can avoid selling the home they love. The person who shows up seems too good to be true. Brandon Cooper is handsome, capable, resourceful, and he doesn't seem to need any money. Why is he really there? Is he more than they bargained for, when they advertised for “A Man for the Summer”?
