Unlock the secrets in Reunion Gap

When the son of the man who lost everything falls in love with the daughter of the man who stole it all, there can only be heartache ahead. 

Readers who loved Mary Campisi’s bestselling Truth in Lies series, also known as the “A Family Affair” books, won’t want to miss Strangers Like Us, Book One in Mary’s new Reunion Gap series. It’s a tale of deception, secrets, forgiveness and redemption set in a small town.

Rogan Donovan gave up the glamour of big city life and returned home to help his family rebuild their lives after a smooth-talking stranger swindled his parents out of their life savings. But some things—like reputation and trust—can’t be rebuilt, and small towns never forget past offenses. 

When Elizabeth Hayes arrives in Reunion Gap, bent on helping the people her father cheated, Rogan opens his heart to her, unaware she’s the daughter of the man who destroyed his father’s life. Despite her good intentions, Elizabeth’s secret will be exposed creating heartache, resentment, and bitterness. 

Will forgiveness and redemption follow?

About the author

Mary Campisi writes emotion-packed books about second chances. Whether contemporary romances, women's fiction, or Regency historicals, her books all center on belief in the beauty of that second chance. Her small town romances center around family life, friendship, and forgiveness as they explore the issues of today’s contemporary women.

Mary should have known she'd become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the ending to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk, and practice manager in an OB/GYN office, for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk, and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes.

When she's not working on her craft or following the lives of five adult children, Mary's digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue lab mix, Cooper, or, on the perfect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own hero/husband on his Harley Ultra Limited.

Unlock the secrets in Reunion Gap

What happens when destiny ignores the rules?

Tate Alexander has the good luck to be born with looks and charm, and the bad luck to belong to a family where money and power mean more than honor and integrity. When he returns to Reunion Gap to take over his father’s company, he’s determined to uncover and right the wrongs his father committed. He’s also determined to win over Charlotte Donovan, the woman who’s stolen his heart. 

Charlotte Donovan is big on causes and vows no man will ever “own” her, especially a playboy who can’t commit to a vehicle, let alone a woman. However, her heart isn’t listening to her brain. The only way to battle that is to create a web of lies that keeps Tate believing she doesn’t care about him.

But maybe she’s so busy keeping her lies in place that she almost misses the man’s devotion to his siblings, and his commitment to righting past wrongs his father committed. When the lies catch up with her, it’s not going to be easy for a man like Tate to forgive a woman who betrayed his trust. 

Will it be too late for them or can destiny step in once again and give them a chance at happiness?

Christmas is a time of joy, hope, and wonder...until the ultimate challenge threatens one of Reunion Gap’s favorite couples.

Note to the reader:

As a reader, I often wonder about the before and afterof certain characters. As a writer, I’m able to act on that wondering if I’ve created those characters. (One of the guilty pleasures of the profession!) Nicki and Jameson Price are two people who made me curious because they’re such a perfect couple. Perfect for how long? What would happen when adversity struck? Would they survive? Of course, I had to “test” them.

Couples Like Usis told in two parts: Part One: Before, which was previously Christmas in Reunion Gapand Part Two: Three and a half years later.

Part One: Before

Nicki Gallagher doesn’t believe in Christmas, small towns, or relationships that aren’t about business. She’s a city girl with big dreams that include prestige and money—and lots of both. But when a forced sabbatical from her job lands her in Reunion Gap during the Christmas holidays, will she open her eyes and her heart to what she’s been missing?

Jameson Price left city life behind to regain his focus on what really mattered in life—family and relationships. Now he’s back in Reunion Gap where the pace is slower and life is less complicated. Just the way he likes it. Until Jameson meets Nicki Gallagher and everything gets complicated.

Part Two: Three and a half years later

Nicki and Jameson Price are the perfect couple: married, in love, with two children and solid careers. They have their whole future planned out, one they will share side by side. When Jameson accepts a month-long consulting job two thousand miles away, he’s doing it to help his family and solidify their future. 

It’s only a month. What could possibly go wrong?Well… Two-thousand-mile separations are never good, but add an ex-girlfriend bent on removing the ex from her status and a wife who finds out about it? It doesn’t matter how much the husband isn’t interested in the ex, he’s in trouble. Follow this couple as they navigate the rockiest part of their relationship, questioning each other, their future, and whether they’ll ever find their way back to perfect.

Seasons in a Small Town – Summer

“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.”

A common theme: belief in the beauty of that second chance. The Butterfly Garden is Book Six of That Second Chance Series.
Sometimes love happens when you least expect it…
Jenny Romano has never been a white-picket-fence, happily-ever-after girl. Despite a mother who rejected her free-spirited, unique ways as irresponsible and just plain wrong, Jenny has found happiness as a photographer, flitting around the country and snapping photos of other people’s lives. Her older sister, Grace, has a husband, children, and a carpool schedule. She’s the one their mother calls “perfect.” 
But when tragedy strikes her sister’s carefully constructed life, Jenny must step in and help. Soon, she’s knee-deep in small-town, suburban life, the kind she’s always avoided…
Psychologist Elliot Drake spends so much time healing other people’s pain that he prefers to keep his own relationships short and uncomplicated. He’s loved and lost once and with a young daughter to raise, he’s not willing to risk his heart again. Of course, he’s never met anyone quite like Jenny. Outrageous and unpredictable, she’s nothing like her well-controlled older sister. And the more he’s around Jenny, the more he wonders if short-term is really what he wants…
Elliot and Jenny are about to discover that real life happens whether you want it to or not. Will they let real love happen, too?

Maya spends her life inside the lines. When a handsy customer takes things a step too far, a bad-boy biker comes to the waitress’s defense and destroys her best laid plans. She knows her leather-clad rescuer is exactly the type of man she should stay away from… so why does she find herself irresistibly drawn to him?


As their attraction grows, Axle receives his most lethal assignment ever: kill the sole witness of a murder.

When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and the man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

He forgave his brother long ago for taking something that had been his, something he hadn't even realized he wanted until it was gone. But forgiving Audra is another story...and forgetting her? Near impossible.
