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?

 A rodeo producer, dead in the bull pen. Accident or murder? 

Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher, until recently a top-flight national TV journalist, is regaining her footing after a dizzying demotion to tiny—and entirely foreign to her—Sherman, Wyoming. But her equilibrium faces a major challenge.

The apparently accidental death — under the hooves of bucking bulls — of a rodeo producer preparing for Sherman’s annual Fourth of July Rodeo catches the attention of Elizabeth and her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik. Not only is it a major story about the region’s biggest event, but it’s being outrageously mishandled by the station’s egocentric anchor.

As Elizabeth and Mike dig, area rancher Thomas Burrell joins the investigation, providing background on suspects — and there are plenty because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has divided loyalties, so Elizabeth doubts his commitment to finding the truth no matter what. Not to mention that both Mike and Tom show an interest in her ... they might be okay with working together in a peculiar triangle, but the points of this geometry is starting to get under her skin.

… From the tip of the rodeo queen’s tiara, to “agricultural byproducts” ground into the arena dust, Elizabeth receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.

Far Hills Ranch has bound the Susland family for nearly a century and a half. For just as long, there’s been a legend that the ranch and its family are cursed. Now, says the legend, the current generation is the last with a chance to break the curse.

Rebecca Dahlgren comes west to Wyoming hoping for answers to her unknown heritage. But from the first moment, she finds Far Hills Ranch foreman Luke Chandler hard to miss. The sexy cowboy, with those sleepy eyes that aren't interested in sleeping, means just the sort of trouble her patrician grandmother has always warned her about. 

Luke has his own reasons for wanting to steer clear of anything like commitment. But the secrets behind Rebecca’s dark eyes keep luring him on … even if it means baring his own heart.

Season in a Small Town -- Autumn 

"Funny, fresh and a good love story." -- 5* review

He sees what she's long hidden . . . especially from herself.

Meet Josh Kincannon, high school principal, single father of three, and thus, as he reminds himself ruefully, essentially celibate back into misty memory and forward into the foreseeable future.

After three months of trying to work with Vanessa Irish via phone and e-mails on a project to help tiny Drago, Illinois, Josh believes he has an accurate picture of Zeke-Tech's CFO:

Conscientious? Oh, yeah.

Intelligent? Absolutely.

Agreeable? Not so much.

Then he catches sight of her wild, vibrant robe and begins to wonder what other elements might form a portrait of Vanessa Irish. Every time she goes into her I'm-so-boring-I-disappear-against-white-walls act, he remembers that vibrant, wild fabric hanging on the corner of a door and he gets curious. 

And the more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity. Things that shake up life as single parent to his three kids, scrape against his career as high school principal and -- oh, yes -- definitely threaten his stretch of celibacy.

Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh Kincannon. Why does he insist on drawing her into his small town, his life, his children? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?

. . . or is it?

Seasons in a Small Town: Winter

The past might be cold, but it’s familiar for Anne. And the future? That might be as gray as a mid-winter Illinois sky. She’s desperately trying to hold on to the family farm owned by her late husband’s great uncle. With Uncle Everett disabled and her new to farming, loans are impossible to get.

Between the farm and the bookkeeping she does for businesses in town, she’s working to exhaustion. And she’s not good at asking for help. Never has been.

Then here comes Quince.

As an executive of the high-tech company bringing operations to Drago, Illinois – and driving up land prices and taxes – he represents part of the problem. But that doesn’t mean Anne can afford to turn down his rent money when Uncle Everett lines him up as a boarder. And – just what she needs -- the two of them hit it off like an old-fashioned comedy team.

Quince is a warm front moving fast through her home and her life, promising spring even when all around is frozen. His quick humor and easygoing ways reach deep into the coldest part of Anne’s troubled heart.

But she realizes that behind that front, Quince, too, has icy demons.

Can Anne save not only this farm she loves, but also herself … and Quince?

In rural Drago, Illinois, Zeke came by his “the Geek” nickname honest, more comfortable in the world of algebra and algorithms than high school’s social hallways. Though that didn’t keep him from longing for the unattainable prom queen, Jennifer.

The one person who did understand his out-of-the-box brain was Darcie, his best friend. After their high school graduation, Zeke and Darcie for one night jolted from friends to lovers. And then he left town, and she knew he couldn’t look back. What he didn’t know was the depth of Darcie’s feelings for him.

Now it’s 17 years later, and Zeke’s a self-made billionaire founder of a tech security firm, Darcie’s a local cop and Jennifer’s a divorced mom of a tween girl. And their little town is flagging.

At Darcie’s urging, Zeke returns to Drago to boost its economy. Will his new wealth attract the still-beautiful Jennifer? Or will Darcie, the one girl who always made him feel at ease, show him that true love knows no boundaries?

Baby Blues and Wedding Bells

She’s a working-class bride. He’s a well-to-do groom. Their botched wedding is only the start of their storybook romance.

Annette Trevetti felt like a modern-day Cinderella as she walked down the aisle towards her first love and the heir to a small fortune. But her wedding day bliss screeched to a halt when an extremely pregnant woman crashed the ceremony claiming her prince charming was the father. Devastated, Annette shakes the dust of her small town off her boots and starts a seven-year climb up the corporate ladder to claim her own fortune. But when her brother gets injured on the job, she has no choice but to return to her hometown and risk exposing the feelings she still has for the man who broke her heart.

Single dad Steve Corbett’s biggest regret is tied up with his greatest joy. When Annette returns to town seven years after she left him at the altar, his love for her hasn't changed one bit. And if his match-making daughter and their one-of-a-kind elderly relative have it their way, they’d pick the romance up right where it left off. Working alongside Annette on her brother’s construction project, Steve senses the flicker of their old flame. But he knows it will take a lot of sweat and tears to rebuild the crumbling trust for a second chance at happily ever after.

With years and heartache between them, can Annette and Steve learn to have faith in each other and rebuild a new future together?

Wedding of the Century is a contemporary romance about second chances. If you like fiery chemistry, precocious children, quirky matchmakers and emotional journeys of the heart, then you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s small-town romance.

A Stranger in His Own Town, to His Own Daughter

When the bad boy of Tobias, Wisconsin, returns home, the repercussions reach far and deep.

Handsome and charming Zach Corbett left the small town eight years ago to make his own way... and never looked back.

Not at the pregnant ex-girlfriend he left behind. Or at what his departure might mean for his brother Steve, whose wedding was put on hold to raise a baby.  

Tensions are high, and there’s only one person who might be able to redeem the Corbetts’ troubled family reunion, a woman who has truly seen Zach since they were kids.

Fran Dalton has always seen beyond the bravado to the pain in those beautiful baby blues of Zach’s. Now, she can see he’s different. And, unlike when they were kids, now she’s grabbed his attention.

If only she can draw Zach into a loving relationship, and prove how much he’s changed, his fractured family might just find it in their hearts to forgive. And heal.

Can Zach and Fran escape the past’s hold to make a future?
