Ladd Fortuneby Dianne Venetta, Jaxadora Design (Illustrator)
Lacy Owens has come back to Tennessee for a return to the fold, only she's done so on the heels of Jeremiah Ladd. He's the prodigal son of Ladd Springs-a mecca of streams, springs and trails in the eastern Tennessee
The forsaken children of Ladd Springs return home to seek their fortune, but no one is happy to see them. One is home for love, one is home for money.
Lacy Owens has come back to Tennessee for a return to the fold, only she's done so on the heels of Jeremiah Ladd. He's the prodigal son of Ladd Springs-a mecca of streams, springs and trails in the eastern Tennessee mountains-and he's determined to reclaim the land as his rightful inheritance.
Lacy cares little about Jeremiah's plan. She simply yearns for the comfort of family, but sister Annie Owens wants nothing to do with Lacy, though sees opportunity in Jeremiah's return. With him in town she can finally prove paternity for her daughter Casey, and ultimately stake her own claim in Ladd Springs.
Trouble is, Jeremiah's father has already willed the property to his granddaughter, Felicity Wilkins. She's away at college, but fighting for her rights back home is Malcolm Ward, partner in Harris Hotels, and a man with a financial stake in Ladd Springs. It's his job to see the land remains in Felicity's possession.
But when Malcolm falls for Lacy without realizing her hidden agenda, his plans are put into jeopardy. In these parts, blood runs thicker than legalities and feuds aside, it's a hard lesson for a city boy from California to comprehend.
Love and money are powerful forces but only one can prevail in Ladd Springs. Which will it be? Find out in the second installment of Ladd Springs...

It keeps you on your toe's, it has some mystery. that is what makes it interesting. the characters in this story were really good.
This book is so amusing, sad at times and you really get caught up in all the family drama. A wonderful story about family and what it really means. I am glad that I read it.
This book is the second in the Ladd Springs series. It picks up a couple of weeks after Ladd Springs. I enjoyed the first book in the series and was looking forward to this one. It did not disappoint me. I loved returning to Ladd Springs. I already have the third book and can hardly wait to read it. The book focuses on Lacy Owens, Annie’s sister. Lacy left town with Annie’s no-good boyfriend Jeremiah Ladd when she was seventeen. When Annie’s friend calls Jeremiah to warn him that his father has deeded Ladd Springs to his cousin Delaney’s daughter, Jeremiah decides to return home to fight for the land. Jeremiah is not interested in the land for the sake of family legacy; his only interest is in selling it. Lacy finds out that Jeremiah is returning to Ladd Springs from his current girlfriend. She decides that after eighteen years it is time to go home and mend fences with her sister. Lacy is tired of her life in Atlanta and feels drawn to go back to her roots. With the return of both Jeremiah and Lacy the sparks start flying as Delaney defends her daughter’s inheritance and Annie Ward fights for her daughter’s rights to the land. The story also heats up with Lacy’s interest in Malcolm Ward, Nick Harris’s partner. Nick is a hotel developer who is in love with Delaney and working with her on plans to develop Ladd Springs into a resort.
