Contemporary Romance, Multi-cultural/Multi-racial Romance
Cinnamon Mabel Dalton always struggled to fit in. A musical savant at an early age, Cinn's life was anything but easy. After a failed marriage and broken heart, she worried she would never find someone who understood her devotion to her craft, and her family. Then her Grandma Mable passed away, she inherited a two-hundred-pound Saint Bernard, and her whole life changed.
Dr. Foster Kern, the director of the Little Ivywood Humane Society, spent hours with Mable Dalton being regaled with stories about her granddaughter, Cinn. Suddenly face-to-face with the woman he had heard so much about, he realized Mabel didn't do her justice. Cinn's exotic looks and giant heart were exactly what he'd been searching for, but he truly believed a woman like Cinn would never be interested in a guy like him.
Cinn and Foster team up to protect her grandmother's legacy, but neither of them could predict how quickly they would discover a mutual happiness they'd both been searching for. When fate unwittingly reveals Cinn's hidden truth, she has two choices; trust her heart to Foster or run away from a lifetime of love.

Life for Cinn hasn't been easy. Let's start with her name... Cinnamon Mabel Dalton, after her grandmother, Mabel. It's a mouthful. But her personality makes up for how wacky she thinks her name is. The book opens with Cinn sitting in her grandmother's funeral. No one knew Mabel well, if at all. Cinn took the time to get to know Mabel and in return, Mabel got to know Cinn and the musical gift she has. So it should come as no surprise at the reading of the will that Cinn inherits Mabel's house and dog, Brutus.
Through Cinn processing her grief the best way she can and getting to know the woman she called grandmother, she meets Foster, the director of the Humane Society and vet. They hit it off and became quick friends. What makes them the perfect couple is neither of them is perfect, with insecurities. When vandalism comes to the dog park, one part of town everyone cares about and Mabel loved, it puts Cinn and Foster together to find the culprit. While it was pretty easy to figure out the mystery, it was a sweet story of watching two people deal with their insecurities (and they have great reasons to have those insecurities) and having a passion for what they do.
The writing was simple and the story had quirky moments, which was great. This is the first book of the series, and I'm quite interested to read the next one!
