Old friends find new love in the midst of a whirlwind of familial upheaval in the touching first Pecan Valley romance from Summers (the Blood Moon Brotherhood series). Two years ago, Felicity Buchanan’s husband, Matt, left her and their two teenage kids, Honor and Nick, to start a new family. When Matt and his new wife die in a car crash, they leave custody of their one-year-old son, Jack, to 18-year-old Honor, who’s in love for the first time and about to start college. Refusing to let Matt disrupt their children’s lives any more, Felicity steps in to raise Jack. Meanwhile, Graham Murphy, formerly a close family friend of Felicity, reaches the end of his rope with his rebellious teen daughter, Diana, who has been lashing out since her mother’s death. Now Graham and Felicity turn to each other for support. Readers will find it easy to root for their mutual care to blossom into love, but the pair’s children have a tougher time adjusting to their new relationship, providing some thorny obstacles for the budding couple. Graham and Felicity are great parents and they make great partners, and Summers does a good job of grounding all the drama of their lives in sweetness. Readers will be pleased. (June)
