March 6th 2019 by Chanson Books



Robin Lancaster, a twenty-six-year-old former kindergarten teacher, has her summer and her life all figured out. She’s ready to be on her own, writing and illustrating her children’s stories at her family’s beloved lake house. Once there, she intends to rekindle a romance with Caleb Jackson, the area’s top hunting and fishing guide, and bag him for herself.



Complications arise from the start when Robin finds out her mother has rented the lake house to a man they know nothing about.



Matthew McLaughlin, forty-year-old widowed university professor and author from California, shows up at Pine Lake in crisis. A sabbatical might be his only hope to save much more than his career. He needs a place of refuge. Sharing the lake house with a lighthearted young woman and her dog is the last thing on his mind.



Caleb Jackson has his own plans. He’s used to things going his way, but a man staying in Robin’s house presents unforeseen challenges. When paths unavoidably tangle for these three, hearts are on the line.



Excerpt:


R
obin’s usual joyful anticipation of dates with Caleb had dissolved into dread by Saturday afternoon. She was being completely childish and she knew it. What exactly was she afraid of? And why was it that so many real feelings were vague as far as expression went?

She took extra care with her hair and makeup and changed her dress half a dozen times before choosing a short blue striped off-the-shoulder shift. High-heeled espadrille sandals showed off her legs. The least she could do was present a confident fa├žade.

At four thirty, Caleb rapped on the apartment door, and as soon as he stepped inside, his smile vanquished all her fears. He had that easy grace that came from being an athlete, and a glow from good health and lots of sunshine. His eyes twinkled as he held a bouquet of pink Gerber daisies tied with a wide gingham ribbon.

“Oh, Caleb, they’re beautiful!” Robin reached for the flowers and he reached for her. “How did I get so lucky?” she murmured as he covered her mouth with his.


“That’s my line,” he whispered against her cheek.
