Publisher's Summary

Love finds you when you find yourself.  

Summer Phillips is ready for a fresh start. When her Manhattan yoga studio fails, she heads back to her hometown. The Pines is an idyllic tourist destination in Vermont, but Summer longs for more in her life than small-town festivals and working for her dentist father. She’s welcomed with open arms, but soon discovers things have changed since she left.  

Jake Moretti is recovering from the death of his close friend, who willed him everything he owned, including the hardware store. He’s lived there a year, but doesn’t quite feel like he fits in with the locals.   

Summer begins to build her life back with the help of her friends and family. She takes over teaching yoga classes at the local rec center, which reignites her passion. Even though they’re each seeing different people, Jake becomes an attraction Summer can’t ignore, and she finds herself drawn to his warmth and charm.   

When an old friend comes visiting with a once in a lifetime opportunity, Summer must make a choice about where she truly belongs in life. Does she follow her dreams in business or in love? Can she have it all, or will people get hurt along the way?  

Peaceful Pines is the heartwarming first book in The Pines Series by an up-and-coming star in the genre, Crystal Harper.

so sweet, hope 4 a movie soon?

I can totally see this book as a movie, a picturesque town, very small, tightly-knitted community, coffee shop moments, ... I did listen through Audible ...what great characters and it just made u all warm and cozy. If you have never taken a yoga class this will for sure make u want to. So calming. peaceful and serene. The stress is gone. great cover. I look forward to more from Crystal ... and newbie author to me ... must read. LOVED THIS listen/read. so awesome!! must listen if you so prefer. love, love, loved it!! ( ;

Take time to rediscover yourself

Summer Phillips is facing the reality that her Manhattan yoga studio has failed and she has to return to her family home in Vermont. Summer is almost 30 yo and is back living with her parents, working part time at her dad’s dental office and volunteering at a yoga studio. She’s attracted to the broody owner of the hardware store but her high school ex keeps getting in the way.
Jake Moretti inherited the hardware store when his best friend died. He lives a quiet life never expecting a forever relationship. He’s attracted to Summer but she’s in a relationship...or is she? Will Jake and Summer rediscover themselves and each other before it’s too late? Sweet story with a bit of angst, halloween and holiday fun and family.
