Claire Bradford needed a wake-up call. What she didn't need was a tragic car accident. As a single mom and the owner of a successful bead shop, Claire leads a predictable life in Hope's Crossing, Colorado. So what if she has no time for romance? At least, that's what she tells herself, especially when her best friend's sexy younger brother comes back to town as the new chief of police. But when the accident forces Claire to slow down and lean on others—especially Riley McKnight—she realizes, for the first time, that things need to change. And not just in her own life. The accident—and the string of robberies committed by teenagers that led up to it—is a wake-up call to the people of Hope's Crossing. The sense of community and togetherness had been lost during those tough years. But with a mysterious "Angel of Hope" working to inspire the town, Riley and Claire will find themselves opening up to love and other possibilities by the end of an extraordinary summer….

Three stories of small-town happily-ever-afters and sweet second chances from New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne! The last thing Claire Bradford has time for in Blackberry Summer is romance—in fact, the single mother has her hands full, what with two kids, a thriving business, an unreliable ex-husband and an accident that has repercussions for the whole town. But when her friend's sexy brother, Riley McKnight, is suddenly looking at her in a new light, Claire realizes that her life needs to change—and that the handsome younger police officer may be just the ticket! In Woodrose Mountain, occupational therapist Evie Blanchard is recovering from an emotional year—and she's vowed not to work again. But self-made millionaire and single dad Brodie Thorne has vowed to do whatever it takes to help his daughter, Taryn, recover from the accident that left Hope's Crossing in crisis. And with laughter, courage and more than a little help from the kindhearted people of Hope's Crossing, Taryn may get the healing she deserves—and Evie and Brodie might just find a love they could never have imagined. Spring should bring renewal, but in Sweet Laurel Falls, Maura McKnight-Parker finds she cannot escape the past. Still reeling from one loss, she is stunned at the reappearance of her older daughter, Sage—and Jackson Lange, her first love.
