Daphne Morrow and Noah Banks have been best friends—and secretly in love—since second grade. The timing has never been right for the two to get together, and they worry about risking their friendship as well as their working relationship at the local school. Daphne comes under scrutiny after volunteer firefighter Noah discovers her prom photos were used to start a forest fire, and things get even more complicated. Daphne's narcissistic ex, Aaron, who looks just like Noah, also shows up, determined to get Daphne back. With the odds against them, can true love win out? Charming and quaint, this refreshing tale of unrequited love speeds readers through the pages. It's not hard to root for Noah and Daphne, but there's more than enough story between the two of them to make the mysterious fire plot unnecessary. (Mar.)
