Lilies & Lies by Mary Manners
Maddie Cutler loathes her status as baby sister to her three brothers. Fearing she may never be considered their equal, she goes out of her way to prove that she's capable of managing the family business. But, her careless accident shuts down Clover Cove's business district and makes Maddie the laughingstock of her family–and Clover Cove.
Gunnar Holt spends weekdays managing his garage and weekends as youth leader for a small church. But Gunnar has a secret...a mistake from the past that nearly stole his future. Not a soul in Clover Cove knows his transgression, and Gunnar plans to keep it that way. Then, Maddie Cutler plows through his garage, nearly demolishing the life he's worked to rebuild--and the wall he's erected around his heart.
As Gunnar falls for Maddie, he must tell her about his past. But, will the secret push Maddie away or pull them closer together?

Lilies and Lies book 3 of the Wildflowers and Wishes series. I have loved getting to know the Cutler family. Finally a girl. Loved the character of Maddie very strong willed. Not sure she should be behind the wheel and driving. Takes out a garage on this last wreck. Right through Gunnar's garage lucky no one was seriously hurt or even killed including Maddie. This garage is all Gunnar has in his life. Pretty new to Clover Cove. Ran away from his pass and started a new life here. But now this and the person behind the wheel of the accident Maddie Cutler. Now she is a s pretty as can be. How could even begin to mad at her. When they touched he felt it and so did she. There is more going on here, but how can he move forward there is so much in his pass he would have to tell her. Can he do it? The bad things he had done. Will Gunnar let down the guard around his heart?
This series is great. Characters are well developed. By time your done reading these your going to think you are related to the Cutler's. A great sweet inspirational romance.
