Blackberry Summer Publisher's Summary

Claire Bradford needed a wake-up call. What she didn't need was a tragic car accident.

As a single mom and the owner of a successful bead shop, Claire leads a predictable life in Hope's Crossing, Colorado. So what if she has no time for romance? At least that's what she tells herself, especially when her best friend's sexy younger brother comes back to town as the new chief of police. But when the accident forces Claire to slow down and lean on others - especially Riley McKnight - she realizes, for the first time, that things need to change. And not just in her own life.

The accident - and the string of robberies committed by teenagers that led up to it - is a wake-up call to the people of Hope's Crossing. The sense of community and togetherness had been lost during those tough years. But with a mysterious "Angel of Hope" working to inspire the town, Riley and Claire will find themselves opening up to love and other possibilities by the end of an extraordinary summer....

    Lucy Drake and Brendan Caine have only one thing in common… And it's likely to tear them apart. Because it was Brendan's late wife, Jessie - and Lucy's best friend - who'd brought them together in the first place. And since Jessie's passing, Brendan's been distracted by his two little ones… and the memory of an explosive kiss with Lucy years before his marriage. Still, he'll steer clear of her. She's always been trouble with a capital T. Lucy couldn't wait to shed her small-town roots for the big city.
