Love Pops Up
Prickly Patrick Manning always manages to get under Madison Porter’s skin. The big-city expat and new coffee shop owner in quaint Honey Springs hasn’t even bothered to try to fit in (he won’t even properly name his shop with a bee-inspired moniker, per local tradition). Worse, his coffee shop space should have been Madison’s. She’d always dreamed of taking over the town’s ice cream parlor and bringing it back to its former glory, until Patrick swooped in.
But when the town discovers Madison actually made the highest bid for the store, the competition is on! She’ll set up a pop-up shop in his cafe to see which is more popular: ice cream or coffee. All’s fair in love and war, but what happens when their hearts unexpectedly start to melt for each other?
