Overview

In this touching new novel by New York Times bestselling author Jill Gregory, a woman comes face to face with a love from her past and finds the chance to heal…

 Fifth grade teacher Mia Quinn expected a tranquil summer in her hometown of Lonesome Way, Montana, sewing for her quilting group’s exhibition fundraiser and caring for her rescued dog, Samson. But all her plans for a relaxing break are thrown out the window when Travis Tanner—the boy who broke her heart in high school—returns to town with his ten year old adopted step-son.

A former FBI agent, the boy Mia once knew is now well over six feet of male muscle—and he still has the power to make Mia lose her train of thought with just a glance. When Travis asks her to tutor his troubled son, Mia quickly discovers that the sparks between them are hotter than ever. As danger comes to Lonesome Way and family secrets come to light, will Travis and Mia realize that love can be even better the second time around?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Stock characters, clichéd plot points, and a secondary story ripped from the headlines do not serve Gregory well in her second Lonesome Way romance (after Sage Creek). Tired of red tape, former FBI agent Travis Tanner returns to his small Montana hometown to start a security company; reconnect with his 10-year-old stepson, Grady, and get the boy back on track academically; and maybe strike sparks with his high school honey, Mia Quinn. But Mia, an elementary school teacher who is Grady’s best hope, comes from a long line of jilted women and has enough on her plate: her prickly great-aunt needs help but won’t acknowledge it, and her secretive teen niece is an uninvited summer houseguest. Gregory’s storytelling lacks nuance—compare sugar-sweet Mia to Travis’s ex-wife, who ignored her son and made him get rid of his pet hamster. The niece’s overdramatic story line reads like a cautionary article from Seventeen and exemplifies the book’s inauthenticity. Agent: Ellen Levine, Trident Media Group. (May)

This is the second book in the Lonesome Way series..As much as I loved the first book,this one was even better..This is the story of Mia and Travis..Thry went together in high school and things hadn't ended well..Travis has just come back to town after taking a leave from the FBI..There's a mystery in the book which kept me reading and I just didn't want to put it down..So anxious for the next book..Highly recommend this book..

I wish this author would write faster and give us more book in this series! This was a great read and I vaguely remember the characters from previous books. If there is too big a gap between books, the reader forgets characters and settings. This is a great romance read and Travis and Mia are smokin' hot!

You know you found a new favorite series, when you look forward to reading about the characters again and being back in the small town of Lonesome Way. I like that each character is different and you get whose who based on their personality. That and there's a theme for each book. Plus it ties up loose ends or whatever arc is going on and I appreciate that. The covers I especially like. Gives an idea on what the setting is like and that the title has something to do with the storyline. Anyway, this was a pretty good sequel. Already want to read the next book.

The 2nd book of the series in the Lonesome Way Montana series is just as entertaining as the 1st on Sage Creek was. It has suspense, love and heart warming moments and it is just a great read for a lazy summer day

I was looking forward to this second book in the Sage Creek series and I wasn't disappointed. I feel this book is a book about second chances. The second chances that come by family, love and friendship. The author did an awesome job of expressing anguish, pain and love either by the thoughts the characters were thinking or the actions you followed in their journey. I loved all of the references to the country music groups, made you feel like you were there, in the moment with the characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone that needs a great contemporary comfort read. (On a side note, Travis starts his own security company in this book, full of Navy SEALS....I am seriously hoping that turns in to a new Romantic Suspense series....HINT HINT).

After reading Sage Creek, I was very excited for Larkspur Road to come out. I definitely wasn't disappointed. Now I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to wait for the third installment.
