Brian Archer, lawyer and infamous playboy, returns to Greenridge after a long holiday to find his life in ashes. Literally. His condo has burned to the ground, and with it, his delusion that he’s a footloose, fancy-free guy who doesn’t secretly crave a home and a place to belong.

Staying with his lovebird brother and sister-in-law at River’s Sigh B & B proves unbearable, only rubbing in his deep loneliness. As does getting to know one of the other guests, a damsel determined to get herself out of distress, without any help from him. What is it about sweet, troubled Katelyn that makes Brian want to go all knight-in-shining-armor? And why is he suddenly longing for things he doesn’t even believe in, like true love, marriage . . . ?

Single mom and wannabe entrepreneur Katelyn Kellerman needs to escape from Greenridge. Her safety, and that of her children, relies on it. Plus, she knows the hazards of trusting someone all too well. So why, after meeting Brian Archer, does she wish she could just stay put and build a home? With him.

No matter how they fight their feelings, Brian and Katelyn fall for each other hook, line and sinker—but life isn’t a fairy tale. Brian can’t live in limbo forever, Katelyn’s ex is increasingly threatening, and she needs to secure a future for her and her kids. Can they beat the odds, salvage the ashes of their pasts, and risk everything for love, or are they just fishing for trouble?

Hook, Line & Sinker by Ev Bishop (River's Sigh B&B, #4) 
Hook, Line & Sinker (River's Sigh B & B, #4)Complete romantic meltdown here. Ev Bishop’s HOOK, LINE & SINKER is a realistic romance with as many thorns, as roses. Brian Archer took an extended vacation to get away from the family drama in Greenridge. As the lawyer reluctantly returned home, his path to exit the airport was blocked by small children, a little yapper and a beautiful woman who looked devastated and lost. The boy scout in Greenridge’s most eligible bachelor came to life and Brian finds himself loading up Katelyn, two young children and Monster, as well as enough luggage to fill a plane and taking them to the only room available in town at the River’s Sigh B&B. Owned by his brother and sister-in-law, he then found out his footloose and fancy-free life has gone up in flames.

Kaitlyn, too is homeless, on the run from an abusive husband and terrified he will find her. Both of them need a friend, both of them deny there is anything else and the only people they are fooling are themselves. Kaitlyn makes Brian forget he doesn’t believe in long-term relationships. She makes him want one, with her. Meanwhile, Kaitlyn is terrified of repeating history, she wants to stand on her own, raise her children and keep them safe, but she finds herself falling for this kindhearted man.

When her ex re-enters her life, privately threatening her, it is Brian who helps her break free. Will he also lose his chance at romance he never thought existed? Will Kaitlyn run at the first opportunity?

Ev Bishop brings real-life drama and romance to life as two people find friendship and trust in a world that has not been kind. Two amazing characters wear their hearts on their sleeves and the sweetness and tentative budding romance is just swoon worthy. A real life fairy tale!
