"A great read. The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart." -- Vine Voice
Seasons in a Small Town – Summer
Pretty, popular Jennifer was prom queen in small-town Drago, Illinois, the girl who had it made. That is, until her no-good ex-husband left her with a child to raise and a household deep in debt. And the family seemed somehow to blame the breakup on her. But Jennifer steeled herself to the challenge and vowed to show them all, especially her vulnerable young daughter. Who knew that a dusty old car dealership might turn out to be her saving grace.
That and Trent Stenner, her ex's brother and a former NFL football star turned successful executive. He, too, sees value in the car lot that once had been a thriving family business. Jennifer's goal is to sell the dealership, but Trent has another strategy. He can see the whipsmart Jennifer at the helm of the town's vital enterprise, but he knows she'll resist any move seen as charity. And he admires that same independent streak he sees in her athletic daughter.
Can Trent and Jennifer save the family business without losing their wallets – and hearts?

Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series:
"You laugh, you angst, you maybe shed a couple tears or two, and at the end of it you move immediately onto the next book because -- unlike teenage Zeke -- you don't want to get away, all you want to do is go back."
"I can only hope there is another installment with this small town as its setting."
"Strong characters with enough faults to make them human and real" yet "The other characters in Drago all add to the story rather than taking attention from the main action."
"McLinn delivers a fun, engaging, and emotionally complicated romance."
"Poignant, heart warming" . . . "Funny and heart-wrenching at the same time" . . . "Passionate and sensual without being distasteful or vulgar."
