    One More SummerOne More Summer by Liz Flaherty

    Synopsis:

    Grace has taken care of her widowed father her entire adult life and the ornery old goat has finally died. She has no job, no skills and very little money, and has heard her father’s prediction that no decent man would ever want her so often she accepts it as fact.

    But she does have a big old house on Lawyers Row in Peacock, Tennessee. She opens a rooming house and quickly gathers a motley crew of tenants: Promise, Grace’s best friend since kindergarten, who’s fighting cancer; Maxie, an aging soap opera actress who hasn’t lost her flair for the dramatic; Jonah, a sweet, gullible old man with a crush on Maxie.

    And Dillon, Grace’s brother’s best friend, who stood her up on the night of her senior prom and has regretted it ever since. Dillon rents Grace’s guest house for the summer and hopes to make up for lost time and past hurts—but first, he’ll have to convince Grace that she’s worth loving…

     The laughter faded from Promise’s face.  “The surgery’s in Kingsport, at Holston Valley Hospital.” She sipped her tea, then continued with a hit of determination in her voice, as if she had to say it all now or not at all.  “It will last a couple of hours.  I expect I’ll have some pain and be a real baby for a day or two.  But then I’ll come home and start getting better.” She wasn’t going to mention Steven in connection with her illness, which meant Grace had to whether she wanted to or not.  Which she didn’t. But-“What about Steven? When and what are you going to tell him?” A haunted expression filled Promise’s eyes.  She wiped condensation from the sides of her glass.  Carefully, as though it was the most important thing in the world. “What does any of this to do with Steven?”

    Well, that is what I am going to leave you with today.  Lots to think about.  What do you have to teaser me with this week?  Be sure to leave a link below. 🙂
