One More Summer by Liz Flaherty
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…
Teaser (22% Kindle Version of ARC)
At eleven o’clock, Dillon left his ladder in the sitting room and went to where Grace was still peeling paper from the bedroom walls. His hands at her waist made her shriek as he lifted her from the ladder with a spinning motion.
“What are you doing?” she demanded, dangling in the air like a life-size marionette. He liked the look, he decided, and liked the feel of her hands on his shoulders where she clutched him fro balance.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
