Summer of the Loon

Deanna Lynn Sletten

Life can change in a heartbeat…

 

Ali Jenson's life changed forever the moment her mother died. The sixteen-year-old was suddenly swept away from the life she knew in California to live with her estranged grandfather in the deep woods of northern Minnesota. Ali's life has never been easy, but it seems her grandfather is trying his best to make it even more difficult. Her only hope is to get through the summer and her last year of high school so she can return to her old life in California. What she hadn't counted on was slowly becoming attached to the grumpy old man and falling in love for the very first time. 

 

Benjamin Jenson never planned on meeting his granddaughter, let alone having her live with him. He isn't thrilled with the idea of a teenage girl coming into his home or his life. He'd been down that path once before and he didn't want to relive it again. But he is her only living relative and he knew his deceased wife, Lizzie, would have wanted him to give Ali a home. Grudgingly, he figured he could put up with the girl for a year. He never expected Ali to find a way into his heart and make him face painful past memories and his worst fear. The fear of losing yet another person he loves.

 

Will Ben finally let go of the past and give Ali the one thing she's always dreamed of? A home.
