Caity Jones wasted a lot of years waiting for the “two kids, a dog and a white picket fence” dream to come true, but she’s ready to move on now. Letting go of society’s idea of the perfect life, she’s purchased a five-acre property in the small rural town of Willows. She’s determined to live a solitary life and become a writer. And that means staying away from men altogether.
Tom Murray owns and runs the local feed store in Willows. His marriage was a failure but his family is strong, and he can’t imagine a world that didn’t include his three young children. He’s an uncomplicated man, living an uncomplicated life—and he has every intention of keeping it that way.
Both are mature … both have baggage … and both have agendas that don’t include romance.
“Spencer’s prose is, as always, smooth, vivid and measured. Her story rang so true that I realized it could be used as a guide to navigating the trials and tribulations of many modern couples.”
“A feel-good read.”
Author note: I am a firm believer in the old saying ‘every cloud has a silver lining’. I also believe that things/circumstances/people are not always as they appear. There are a number of characters in this story who are getting another chance … hopefully in the eyes of the readers as well as the other characters. The characters are adults, so there are adult scenes—but the action is primarily behind closed doors, so to speak.
