About this Book
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but sometimes three little words are all you need...
Molly O’Donaghue has photographed some of the most beautiful women in the world. For the last eighteen months she’s been living in Montana, building a business that keeps her feet on the ground and her heart intact.
Jacob Green is a successful property developer, and he’s definitely not Molly’s type. She’s had her heart broken by a man with more money than common sense and she isn’t about to go down that path again.
Her latest assignment wasn’t supposed to be complicated, but she finds more through the lens of her camera than she expected to see. With a family’s happiness at stake and a bride who can’t see past an emerald lake, Molly and Jacob have to work together to find a whole lot of happy endings. And one of them could be theirs.

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
Molly stood on the edge of the dance floor with her camera close to her eye. She waited, poised to catch the moment when the young bride and groom spun in front of her.
They moved closer. Jarrod took a step to the right, lifting Abbey off her feet.
Abbey leaned back and laughed. The play of light on her face, her veil soft and full, the love and excitement of what was ahead - it was all there. A perfect moment in time; a moment where magic and reality collided to create perfection.
Molly sighed and quickly took the shot, then another, and then a third. The light changed, the magic faded, and the world settled into an easy rhythm again.
“Do you want to stop for a drink now?” Rachel asked.
Molly took a quick photo of the woman standing beside her. She’d met Rachel a few months ago and ever since then, they’d been good friends.
“I’ll only be a few more minutes.” Molly walked along the edge of the dance floor, following Abbey’s sisters as they danced with their partners.
“You said that half an hour ago. The wedding won’t stop if the photographer sits down for ten minutes.”
Molly checked her watch. The bridal dance was over, the cake had been cut, and all of the guests had been photographed at least once. She’d done her job, but there was so much more she wanted to do.
She would give Abbey and Jarrod memories they could treasure, memories that would help when times were tough. Molly believed in the power of love, maybe a little too much. But she knew there would be times when the only thing binding them together were the vows they’d made on this day.
“I want to get another photo of the flower girls. I promise I’ll only be five minutes.”
Rachel pretended to frown. “I’ll get you a glass of wine. If you’re not back at our table in five minutes, I’m going to pull you away from whatever you’re doing.”
Molly grinned at Rachel. She’d have to find her first. The flower girls had disappeared half an hour ago, slipping away from the speeches before Molly knew they’d gone. Knowing the two six-year-olds, they were probably tucked under someone’s table, playing with their dolls.
As Molly wove through the wedding guests, she smiled at the people she knew. Bozeman wasn’t so different from the small Irish village she’d grown up in. The people were warm and friendly, ready to lend a helping hand or a quiet word when the need arose.
She looked around the hotel’s ballroom, trying to find places where two giggly flower girls could play hide-and-seek. Molly had no trouble seeing over the top of most people’s heads. At six-foot tall, she didn’t often have trouble finding anyone. But her extra height didn’t come in handy when she was looking for two small girls.
She stopped at a table at the back of the room. Doris and her husband, Jake, were enjoying a lovely plate of dessert. “That looks like a fine way to end the evening.”
“Hello, Molly,” Doris said with a kind smile. “Would you like to join us?”
Molly shook her head. “I’m looking for Abbey’s two flower girls. Have you seen them?”
Jake nodded. “They went to the bathroom with their mom. I think little Alison might have had an accident.”
Doris scowled at her husband. “It was nothing of the sort. Her sister got chocolate sauce all over her dress. Her poor mother is trying to get the worst of it out before it stains.”
Jake didn’t look the least put out by his wife’s chatter. He simply nodded and pointed to the doors behind them. “They went that way, Molly.”
“Thanks. Have a fine evening.” She left Jake and Doris to their dessert and headed toward the big wooden doors. Molly thought about the photos ahead of her; the toss of Abbey’s bouquet, the moment the bride and groom said goodbye, the tears, the joy, and the laughter.
The doors opened and a man walked into the room. A man she knew all too well. She’d seen Jacob earlier, talking to the groom and watching the wedding with eyes that were far too serious.
He stopped and turned back to the door, opening it in anticipation of her exit. “Are you going this way, Molly?”
She nodded. He was taller than she was, as handsome a man as she’d ever seen. But there was something about him that irritated her beyond what was normal. Something she paid close attention to. “Did you see two little flower girls on your travels?”
He shook his head and smiled. “I like what you’re wearing.”
Heat warmed Molly’s face. To hide her reaction to his softly spoken words, she looked at her dark blue dress. It was part of her working wardrobe; smart and dressy, with room to move for any awkward photographs. She’d always felt comfortable in the fine merino dress. Until now.
She glanced at Jacob. He might be irritating, but she wasn’t immune to the charm rolling off him in waves. She’d bet on her granny’s grave that Jacob Green would be trouble for a woman’s heart. Especially a woman who’d sworn off charming men for life.
He opened the door wider, leaving room for her to walk past him. “I haven’t seen you in a while. How are you?”
“I’m grand.” She stepped through the open doorway, ignoring, as best she could, the gleam in his eyes. She could have told him that half the reason he hadn’t seen her was because she deliberately kept away from him. The other half had more to do with his schedule than hers.
“I’m staying in Bozeman for a few more weeks.” Jacob said his words as a statement, an opening to things she wouldn’t be a part of.
Molly decided to smile and walk away - leave him to enjoy the company of the other wedding guests. “It was nice seeing you, but if you’ll excuse me, I have two little girls to find.”
A frown replaced the curiosity in his gaze. “I could help?”
Molly wasn’t prepared for his offer. Her grip on her camera tightened. “It won’t take long to find them, but thank you.” She walked past him, breathed in the scent of a man with expensive taste, and left him standing at the doors.
“We could have a drink together after you finish work?”
Molly heard a child’s voice coming from somewhere on the first floor. “I don’t think so.”
Two little girls erupted out of a room on the far side of the landing. Their giggles echoed against the wooden floor. Molly lifted her camera and snapped a series of photos. The pictures would capture the bubble of excitement surrounding them, the joy of being six-years-old.
As they ran past her, she said goodbye to Jacob and followed them into the ballroom. She felt like a coward, a woman afraid of her own heart. But Jacob Green was a mystery she didn’t want to solve.
And some things, she’d learned, were better left undone.
Jacob stared across the ballroom, lost in too many thoughts that didn’t belong at a friend’s wedding. He wasn’t used to feeling so off-center, as if something that wasn’t right, could never be fixed.
