“All is fair in love and . . . the pear pie wars.”
In the world of love and pastry, nothing is off-limits. Tori Bevan grew up listening to her grandmother’s mantra as she tirelessly competed against her arch-nemesis, Ben Holden, in the annual Clarksville Pear Festival pie competition. Despite Grandma Bevan’s best efforts, the blue ribbon has eluded her for more years than she wants to admit, always falling into the hands of the Holden family. But this year, Tori is determined to change the outcome and win the prize once and for all.
Dane Holden fled his small hometown and his grandparents’ pear farm with no intention of looking back. But when his business ventures flop, leaving him jobless and homeless, he has no choice but to return for the annual festival at the request of his grandfather.
Despite her initial animosity towards him, Tori begins to find herself drawn to her ex after all these years. But just as things heat up between the two, Dane’s past comes back to haunt him, threatening to destroy everything Tori has worked towards.
Will the Bevan family finally claim victory and reign supreme at the festival? Or will the Holden dynasty continue its reign and hold onto the coveted blue ribbon once more?
