Can the young preacher's sister help him remember what home means? Can she convince him to stay?
FREDRICK, MJ SERIES:
Lily Prater is the heart of Bluestone. As the owner of the landing where people dock their boats, rent a launch or a cabin, she has a lot invested in the town. She’s fighting hard to save her town, hit hard by the recession. Her mind is always spinning with ideas, ideas she can usually get Quinn to help her carry out.
They work together on the summer celebrations, the outdoor movies, the winter carnival, the tension growing between them.
But it takes leaving Bluestone for him to see her as more than his best friend’s girl, and make him wonder if leaving Bluestone for good is what he wants at all...
Beth Lapointe has her hands full--her teenaged sister is struggling with new motherhood, her job as a waitress is becoming more strenuous as her boss is pulled in different directions, and her alcoholic father is demanding she help him or he’ll return to Bluestone. The last thing she needs is her high school sweetheart to show up live and in person and to realize she still has feelings for him.
