They’ve both been shattered by love lost. They’re both wary of getting deeply involved again. It doesn’t help matters any when Barb’s focus gets drawn away from her own happiness to tend to the needs of others. Janet tries to be understanding of Barb’s need to be there for her family.

She loves the curvy cop with her heart on her sleeve but she’s afraid the younger woman too often leaps before she considers all of the consequences.What will it take to convince the two women that their personalities complement each other and that they’re a good match? Can two love weary people, from different worlds, find strength together? Can they find more and even a happily ever after?Fans of the Morelville Mysteries mystery/romance series may recognize these two characters, who played supporting roles in these books but these novels stand alone, apart from that series.
