Into the Future by Celya Bowers
Lysette (Lizzy) Carter Hall life would be fine except for one minor detail...her ex-husband, Paul. He's making her life a living hell. From not picking up their two children when arranged to filing bogus charges with Child Protective Services. She just wants this man out of her life.
Tristan MacDonald, Turners Point youngest city manager, just wants a quiet life. After his divorce, he wants no drama. But once he sets eyes on his lead attorney, Lizzy, all those vows fly right out of the window. Lizzy has baggage in the form of a clingy ex-husband. Something about the single mother of two makes him want to protect from all that is wrong in her life.
When Lizzy's ex is found dead in her home, Tristan quickly suggest that she and her children move in with him. As they unravel the facts surrounding the murder, they become closer. As she has to look betrayal in the eye, it's Tristan who picks up the pieces.
Tristan's life has never felt better. He wants to make Lizzy a permanent fixture in his future. Is Lizzy ready to jump back in the fire after getting burned?
