HEARTS UNLOCKED by Beverly Nault

Stephanie Allan left home when her father made unreasonable demands on her. She's now a social worker and determined to make it on her own. She shares an apartment with her best friend but has no money for extras. The car she drives has about seen it's day. When she gets a flat tire on the way home, she is shocked when Brandon McCallister stops to help her. Then asks her out for coffee. Brandon McCallister is a celebrity and recognized wherever he goes. Stephanie is very drawn to Brandon but knows there can be nothing between them. She's heard of his reputation and besides he looks pretty friendly with Rose. Will Brandon convince Stephanie to take a chance with him or will the door to her heart remain closed?

This was a lighthearted story that made for an enjoyable Thanksgiving Day read. The characters were likable and the town of Cherryvale was a place I'd like to visit again. There were a few parts where I just didn't understand why Brandon and Stephanie couldn't ask each other what was bothering them but I guess if we're honest, you don't do that when you're first dating. The story moved at a nice pace and kept my interest. I liked the ending but I really wanted there to be bit more. I know there are other books in the Cherryvale series so perhaps we'll see more of these characters as the stories continue. I might even go the Cherryvale for Christmas and find out!
