A year after losing her beloved husband, Grace Wizler learns he left a special surprise for her. A fabulous getaway in the beautiful Canadian Rockies that includes a date with a mystery man arranged through Madame Eve's 1NightStand dating service. She's shocked and intrigued...what was Ben thinking?

Grace's date is charming, handsome and about to find out whether the woman of his dreams will return his affection. He's waited forever, but he's ready to risk it all on a 1NightStand.

Grace is a forty two year old widow. Before he died, her husband, Ben arranged for her to have a 1 Night Stand.

This was a wonderful story and although I’ve enjoyed others in this series, I have to say this is my favorite so far. I was immediately drawn to Grace who is going through a bad time one year after her husband’s death. She has some very supportive people in her life including her brother and a neighbor named Jake who, like Grace, is immediately likeable.

It’s difficult to explain why I enjoyed this story without giving away the plot but let me just say that Ben set up Grace’s 1 Night Stand in the beautiful Canadian Rockies and it gives you a feel how much love the two of them shared. The author did a great job describing the scenery and accommodations in this story. Grace hikes to a secluded cabin, and it’s there she gets to meet her date. I had a feeling who it would be and was happy I was right. I think you will be too when you read this story. It contains a few letters from Ben to Grace which will pull on your heartstrings and added a lovely touch.

Ms. Burke did a wonderful job creating this moving story in such a short read and I highly recommend The One He Chose to you, especially if you’re new to this series.
