This Old Cafe

THIS OLD CAFE                                              MARCI BOUDREAUX

Jenna Reid purchased the Stonehill Café to prove to herself that her ex-husband was wrong...that she could make her dreams come true. Three years later, all she has is a crumbling building, no social life, and her bruised pride.

Pride is something Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Maguire lost long ago and isn’t likely to find living in the alley behind the café. He just needs a little time to get on his feet. In the interim, keeping an eye on the overworked café owner gives him a sense of purpose. He has no intentions of making his presence known until he hears the woman screaming late one night.

He rushes into the café, but instead of finding her in dire straits, he finds a broken pipe and Jenna—soaking wet and holding a wrench. With her last bit of hope fading, Jenna accepts Daniel’s help to fix up her building, but it doesn’t take long for them to start trying to fix each other.


Jenna Reid has purchased an old café and as much as she wants to make it work she knows it also needs repairs that she cannot afford. Trying to fix a leaky faucet that has been driving her crazy she now has made the leak into a flood. Enter Daniel Maguire who rushes in and shuts off the water and also fixes the leak. Taken back by his appearance, she finds out that he has been sleeping behind her dumpster at night. Daniel is actually a former Lt. Col. and was forced to leave the Army because of his temper. His issues are described in more detail in the story. Jenna realizes that he is willing to help her with the repairs and finds out that he has the experience to do them from working with his uncle who owns a construction company. The more time he spends fixing up the cafe he is also fixing himself, at least you are hoping that is the case. Jenna and Daniel spend more and more time together and you find out about her past and the man who destroyed her dream and really stole her inheritance as well. Jenna and Daniel begin to trust one another and the cafe begins a new life when someone destroys the windows. Now the story really starts to take some twists and turns that I definitely did not see coming but did add to the story.There are some good characters in this book as well. I got this book from I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at
