The Grand Finale book description
Berry Knudson had a talent for disaster, but when she climbed a tree to rescue a kitten, she wasn’t prepared for the scrumptious hunk undressing in a nearby window, or her dive downward that smashed Jake Sawyer’s pizza and won his heart!
But was there room in her chaotic schedule for a risk-taking inventor with dreams?
She took classes, delivered pizzas, and cared for three eccentric old ladies she rescued from the train station. But Jake thrived on a challenge, and he could be very inventive.
Could he teach her there was time to make butterscotch pudding and let herself be loved?
