Belinda Graber loves growing flowers for her family to sell at the Amish marketplace. Venturing beyond the farm to sell them in town, though, is out of the question. People would stare at the birthmark on her cheek, and she’s dealt with enough teasing in her life. As a beekeeper, Adam Fisher knows how blessed he is to live next door to the Graber’ greenhouses and fields. But when his father is injured, Adam has to take a job at the local mill. How will he manage the honey harvest? Adam and Belinda make a deal: if she tends his hives, he’ll sell her flowers in town. Belinda’s sure that her growing feelings for Adam could never be returned. Meanwhile, Adam can’t help but notice how his shy neighbor charms the bees…or is he the one being charmed? Because his last courtship ended badly, Adam tells himself this arrangement is strictly business, even if Belinda is sweet as honey.
