Coming Soon: Heart and Home

From the moment Janice McCarty set her sights outside of Sonesville in the sixth grade, she couldn't shake the dust of the small town she hated growing up in fast enough. Now twenty-six and already one of the highest paid journalists at the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, it's only a matter of time before she is sitting in her boss's seat and living the life she thought she always wanted. Then the call came in the middle of the night that sent her spiraling in a daze back to Sonesville.

For the first time in eight years, Janice is home, not to visit, but to help her father lay her mother to rest. The circumstances couldn't be worse as Janice discovers the people of Sonesville (who are quite content with their noses smack dab in the middle of everybody's business,) seemed to know her mother better than she did. Feeling alienated from the place she once called home, former football hero and local farmer, Troy Kepner, starts turning up every time Janice finds herself in need of a knight in shining armor. Drop dead gorgeous and with a heart bigger than anyone Janice has ever known, Troy's been down the road she's on, and gave up his education and a chance to play professional football when his father died and left him in charge of the family farm.

A week with Troy complicates her adamant plans to run back to the safe and anonymous city, where the only people who know her name are the ones who read her byline in the paper.To make matters worse, her mother's restless spirit seems to have no intention of letting go until she finds a way to convince her daughter that home is where the heart is.

Coming soon from Dragon's Gold, Heart and Home by Jennifer Melzer.
