Sydney Bell was the daughter of a police officer, and she knew exactly how far was too far when it came to the law. But the lines between right and wrong blurred when it involved matters of the heart. At least that’s what she told herself after a devastating divorce took away her rights to the step children she loved. She had dealt with enough loss in her life and was desperate to hold her family close, no matter what the consequences.
Heartbroken, she escaped to the small lake town of Maisonville and resigned never to understand men as she began to pick up the pieces and make a fresh start. Unfortunately, her past isn’t ready to let her go, as her ex-husband and his new girlfriend show up and the real reason Sydney moved to the lake is revealed.
To compound her problems in her new town, the handsome guy next door and Sydney are already butting heads.
Ryan Gentry was living his dream; the perfect job, a house on the lake with all the peace and quiet he ever wanted. At least until the emotional and opinionated red-headed Sydney moved in next door. Chaos trailed her wherever she went. He didn’t want to get involved, but he was compelled to help her.
As Sydney works to make a new life for herself, she’s reminded that a small town can heal your soul, sparring with an arrogant neighbor can build self-esteem, and true friendship has the ability to make you a better person.
When love is not enough.
This Southern Gothic Tale is set in Dixon Springs. A spot so far off the map that the highway and train tracks both end here.
Home to Meg and her big sister, Sophia, all they want is a chance in life and to get out of this dying place.
With only each other to depend on, can they find a way to escape or is there no way out of this nowhere town?
