“A great read. The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart.” -- Vine Voice
Pretty, popular Jennifer was prom queen in small-town Drago, Illinois, the girl who had it made. That is, until her no-good ex-husband left her with a child to raise and a household deep in debt. And the family seemed somehow to blame the breakup on her. But Jennifer steeled herself to the challenge and vowed to show them all, especially her vulnerable young daughter. Who knew that a dusty old car dealership might turn out to be her saving grace.
That and Trent Stenner, her ex’s brother and a former NFL football star turned successful executive. He, too, sees value in the car lot that once had been a thriving family business. Jennifer’s goal is to sell the dealership, but Trent has another strategy. He can see the whipsmart Jennifer at the helm of the town’s vital enterprise, but he knows she’ll resist any move seen as charity. And he admires that same independent streak he sees in her athletic daughter.
Can Trent and Jennifer save the family business without losing their wallets – and hearts?

The Right Brother, Book 2 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Seasons in a Small Town series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Roxanne St. Clair and Jill Shalvis.
Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series:
“You laugh, you angst, you maybe shed a couple tears or two, and at the end of it you move immediately onto the next book because -- unlike teenage Zeke -- you don't want to get away, all you want to do is go back.”
“I can only hope there is another installment with this small town as its setting.”
“Strong characters with enough faults to make them human and real” yet “The other characters in Drago all add to the story rather than taking attention from the main action.”
“McLinn delivers a fun, engaging, and emotionally complicated romance.”
“Poignant, heart warming” . . . “Funny and heart-wrenching at the same time” . . . “Passionate and sensual without being distasteful or vulgar.”

“Ms. Rice is a wonderful storyteller....” Angela Johnson, Old Book Barn Gazette
Megan Flannigan wants only two things in life: to run her bakery The Rise and Shine, and to avoid the handsome and insufferable Officer Caleb Thornton.
Caleb has made her life difficult ever since he arrested her over a decade ago, and her one wish is that he leaves her alone—while they both continue to deny the attraction that sparks between them every time they meet.
Her wishes are dashed when her bakery is robbed. To make matters worse? Caleb is assigned to the case—and now he’s the officer charged to protect Megan from a dangerous criminal.
Caleb Thornton decided to become a police officer to atone for a tragic adolescent mistake. As part of the famously rich and privileged Thornton family, he’s always been aware of how he can never measure up to his family’s expectations.
As a result, he follows the letter of the law in both his job and his personal life—except when it comes to the beautiful and fiery Megan. She makes him yearn for something more, and she attracts him as much as she frustrates him. When Caleb is assigned to watch over Megan, he’s forced to reconcile the feelings he’s harbored for her for years.
But as danger draws closer to Fair Haven, Megan and Caleb must come to grips with the past—or risk losing the love of a lifetime.
