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?

What Are Friends For?, Book 1 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.
“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.” – 5-Star Review
Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series:
“The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart and 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.”
