Red Velvet and Anemones (Pagosa Cliffs #2)
by M.M. Ward
Wedding Cake Artist Milli Velvet Haywood had a horrible childhood at the hands of her alcoholic mother, but she was saved and adopted into the loving Haywood family at the age of 7. She grew up with a feisty but loving sister, Marnianne, and doting parents, who always encouraged her to follow her dreams. A terrible change comes and, now, a 23-year-old Milli has no choice but to leave her life in Vegas behind to take over her Great-Aunt Elizabeth’s historic B&B, The Wild Anemone, in the small community of Pagosa Cliffs. But with a new start comes new challenges, and her attempt to return to her old life brings new danger and a threat from a person she never expected to see again. Can she move forward? Can she be better? Or will the bitterness of her lot in life sour her future chances at love?
