Everett Monroe can’t keep his eyes off his gorgeous tenant.
He’d like to put his hands on her, too, but she’s prickly, closed-off, and gives new meaning to the word disgruntled. In other words, she’s his perfect match, and he’ll do anything to make her see it, too.
Willa Hill has finally left her teen runaway past behind and wants a fresh start - alone. Men are nothing but trouble, and she’s had enough man trouble to last a lifetime.
Too bad her irresistibly sexy, nerdy-hot landlord doesn’t agree.
When their mutual yearning becomes a white-hot fling and passion crosses carefully drawn, albeit one-sided boundaries, Everett finds himself in love and Willa finds herself in a pickle.
Because, unfortunately, when she returned to Green Valley, her problems came, too.
When the past she escaped crashes into the future she finds herself wanting more than anything, will Willa stay in Green Valley?
Or will she run away again?
Carpentry and Cocktails is a full-length contemporary romance, can be listened to as a stand-alone, and is book five in the Green Valley Library series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.
