1-800-Summer
Josie Riveria

The last thing she can fix is her own life. Until one man’s offer changes everything.

There’s been one constant in Belle Boots’ nomadic life. Horses. She’s lived in North Carolina for a couple years, but lately, the universe seems to be telling her it’s time to pack up her equine therapy practice and move on. Maybe Florida. Or California.

But when she’s offered a horse-friendly fixer-upper, her sense of adventure gives way to a longing for something familiar. Salt air, wheeling seagulls, summer sand between her toes. Home.

The universe chooses that moment to muddy up her plans with a man whose emerald-green eyes and rich Scottish accent do funny things to her pulse.

Andrew Branfield knows what it’s like to have important things slip through his fingers. A marriage. Money. Though Belle’s teasing voice and gray eyes stir the ashes of his loneliness, his first priority is doing whatever’s necessary to keep his daughter’s favorite equine therapist from drifting away.

He never expected, when he set out to build Belle the barn of her dreams, that he’d build something else. A home for their hearts.

Sometimes you have to leave a place to discover it’s really your home.

She has bought an old Victorian near the lakeshore and has opened “Audra’s Place,” a coffee shop-bakery in the mornings, and in the evenings, a carry-out pizza shop. Her future and her little girl’s hinges on its success. She is the sole support of her child, not wanting to have contact with the man who abandoned her when she told him she was expecting six years ago.

Someone in town is dangerously unhappy and begins setting booby traps that explode into flames. The tourist season is the life-blood of little Winfield—nothing must make tourists stay away. Carter grew up here and his wild youth follows him-in spite of his spotless record in law enforcement in another department in the state. Many, especially Audra’s uncle, question whether he has reformed. More booby-trap fires push Carter to question whether he is really sheriff material. And as he’s drawn to Audra, her uncle does whatever he can to undermine Carter. Can Audra and Carter break free of the past and have a future together? And will Carter crack the case before someone is severely injured or dies?

Now grown, her outspoken ways are about to send her home from London in disgrace. Until she clashes with an impossibly perfect, grey-eyed man. And the back of her mind echoes with God’s promise: I will not leave you comfortless. As if she’d find comfort with a man as arrogant as Nash Browning.

Is it possible the way back to his faith is with a woman who is honest to a fault, yet fiercely loyal to a shunned people? Can he set a course for their future, trusting that God has prepared the way?

A thread of faith, however faint, can lead you to your destiny.

Jean C. Gordon

There’s nothing like a wedding to bring people together, but family dynamics can be complicated, especially newly blended ones.

Sonja Cooper is thrilled that her daughter Lauren is marrying Jesse Brewster and giving her a ready-made granddaughter in the irrepressible 3-year old Shelley. The fact that Jesse is also Sonja’s business partner in the launching of the Morrison Mansion B&B is just a bonus.

Custom bike shop owner Jeff Brewster is also delighted that his son Jesse is marrying Lauren and building a new family. The one awkward aspect is the unexpected attraction he feels towards Sonja. For although Sonja feels the same spark, having been burned in her divorce from Lauren’s father, she’s determined never to be dependent on a man again.

Then the Indigo Bay Business Association pits Sonja and Jeff against each other by having their businesses compete for the coveted “New Business of the Year Award.” All’s fair in love and war, but hearts don’t always listen!

This is the 3rd novel in the Indigo Bay Second Chance Romances series, but all books can be read as stand-alones.
