This is a neo-Victorian romance of fine mysteries, upset stomachs, and torrential downpours. Julia can't handle people. Lara can't handle Julia. Neither of the two knows how to deal with the feelings they bring out in each other. When a shared love of Victorian mysteries bring these two mismatched girls together, can the matchmaking track record of the Monday Mystery Society remain unbroken in the face of overwhelming odds?
The Monday Mystery Society attracts ten diverse individuals, all attractive in their unique ways - and all of them single. Five stories of love in a small town.
After being on a big-city network news station, the last thing Tessa Sheldon wants to do is return to the small town of Mercy Ridge to work at the local radio station. But, she doesn't have many choices. Police Officer, Dolan Nash, wants to feel something other than the pain and death that's surrounded him the past few years. If he keeps his head down and focuses on the peaceful quiet of the small town, the memories will stay quiet as well. Sometimes we keep secrets inside.
Teenage love is a road fraught with heartache and Jennifer Defoe was no exception. Hers is an unrequited love for a boy who thought her a friend. When he left for the Navy, Jennifer gave up on her future and any hope of love. Michael Harrison left Mercy Ridge with grand plans of travel and adventure only to have it come crashing down upon him after a tragic accident leaves him scarred. He flees back to the only home he has ever known for the chance to heal.
