Allie Graves and Craig Archer literally run into each other when they first meet. After their fender bender, neither of them realize that fate will conspire to bring them together. They continually bump into one another--making it difficult to fight the attraction they would rather deny. She finds him rude and crude; he finds her an irritating and unwanted distraction. When an unexpected event causes Craig to call on Allie for assistance, the two find themselves giving encore performances of their initial encounter.

When she is not teaching piano or transcribing music, Allie dates with determination. She wants to be married and start a family. She refuses to let a terrible previous relationship stand in the way of her future happiness.

Craig is her polar opposite. He also experienced a painful heartbreak, but chooses to withdraw from relationships with the opposite sex. Instead, he focuses on helping his brother, a single parent, raise his niece.

As they continue to interact with one another, they find that they have more rather than less in common. When startling truths are revealed, the outcome of the relationship that Allie and Craig have grown becomes uncertain. The lingering fears that they harbor may lead them to make choices which cause them to remain unhappy and alone.

Christy Hayes writes with a clear and deft hand. She manages to introduce elements of mystery that make this contemporary romance well paced and readable. This sense of mystery applied to what could easily be perceived as a mundane setting keeps the story fun and interesting.
