About this ebook

Delight in this charming small-town romance where two people learn that sometimes love is better the second time around.
Mia Gibbs spent her marriage putting her husband's needs before her own. And now, after a painful divorce, she's building a new life for herself and her two daughters back home at Firefly Lake. The last thing she needs is a man to complicate things. But former bad boy turned friend Nick McGuire-and the one kiss they've shared-has turned everything upside down . . .

Attorney Nick McGuire wasn't meant to be a family man. His career has always been his focus and after taking time out to help his mother, he's ready to get back to the city . . . until Mia and her daughters arrive at Firefly Lake. Mia is beautiful and intriguing, and it doesn't take long to realize being "just friends" will never be enough. As the summer nights turn colder, Nick will have to choose between the life he's always wanted . . . and the woman he can't live without.

It's been said that you can't go home again, but sometimes, home is exactly where you need to be. And, sometimes, home is more than a place... Firefly Lake once represented everything that Mia Gibbs didn't want. Reminders of a childhood filled with dishonesty and betrayal made it more a prison than a respite. As an adult, though, the idyllic spot in Vermont is just what Mia needs as she rebuilds a life for herself and her girls. Nick McGuire knows himself. Disappointed again and again by those closest to him, and destined to keep love at arm's length, he's only back at Firefly Lake long enough to help his mother get her life in order. But life, and love, happen when we're least expecting it, and soon enough the feelings that he's having for Mia are more than he could have anticipated. Small town romances with a second-chance twist are some of my favorites, and author Jen Gilroy does not disappoint with SUMMER ON FIREFLY LAKE. Healing, the stripping away of hurts, and people becoming exactly who they're destined to be abound in this story of love lost and love found. Both Nick and Mia have suffered at the hands of the people that were supposed to be their safe place, and, while it's left Nick wary of opening himself up to anything deeper than a fling, it's given Mia the strength to know her worth, and to refuse to settle for anything less than she deserves. The more time they spend together, the more evident it becomes that both of them are exactly where they're supposed to be, even if it takes one of them (cough, cough, Nick...) longer to realize it. SUMMER ON FIREFLY LAKE is rich with family, friends, small town life, and the feeling that second chances are waiting just around the corner. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Mia and Nick find their way back to each other, and see some unexpected new relationships bloom. I'm looking forward to getting Cat's and Luc's story soon, because there's definitely something brewing there. In the meantime, 4 stars and a recommendation for SUMMER ON FIREFLY LAKE to lovers of contemporary romances with that small-town twist. You'll be happy that you visited.

About the author

Jen Gilroy grew up under the big sky of western Canada. After many years in England, she now lives in a small town in eastern Ontario where her Irish ancestors settled in the nineteenth century. She's worked in higher education and international marketing but, after spending too much time in airports and away from her family, traded the 9-5 to write contemporary romance to bring readers' hearts home.

A small-town girl at heart, Jen likes ice cream, diners, vintage style and all things country. Her husband, Tech Guy, is her real-life romance hero, and her daughter, English Rose, teaches her to cherish the blessings in the everyday.
