Summer by the River336
Making a fresh start in a new part of the country is challenging, but fate and good fortune lead Josie Waterhill and six-year-old Zoe from urban war-zone LA to cozy Galena, Illinois—a famous Midwestern small town right on the river. There, Josie can raise Zoe away from the violent life she once knew, and make a new home in the historic house where they've been invited to stay.
The situation is perfect, until Josie's elderly landlord Myra welcomes more guests—journalist Carter O'Brien and his giant rescue dog, Buttercup. Carter is charming, compassionate…and way too curious. Carter's interest in Josie deepens and he inadvertently stirs up trouble when he uncovers things that Josie would rather not have known. Ready or not, love happens and Josie has to let go of her painful past so she can create a glorious future.
