He left to pursue his dreams. She learned how to live without him. Can they rekindle the love they lost, or will her secret break them apart once again?

Trapper Barnes and I once shared a love as big as the Colorado sky. But at eighteen I had to make the gut-wrenching decision to let him go, guarding an agonizing secret: our unborn child. If he'd known I was pregnant, he would have stayed, ruining his dreams of playing professional hockey. Tragically, I lost the baby. Grieving and broken, I poured sorrow and hope into my bakery until it became a cornerstone in our tight-knit community.

A career-ending injury drew me back to the quaint streets of Emerson Pass and the family and friends I left behind. I dreaded seeing Brandi but in a town this size, it was inevitable. What came as a surprise? Falling right back into love with her. My gut tells me she's hiding something and I'm not going to give up until she tells me what it is.

As we grapple with the pain of what might have been, a looming forest fire threatens our town. Can a shared tragedy help us find our way back to each other or will the weight of a secret keep us apart forever?

Experience a heartrending tale of lost dreams and second chances in Emerson Pass by USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson.

About the Author

Tess Thompson Romance...hometowns and heartstrings.
USA Today Bestselling author Tess Thompson writes small-town romances and historical romance. She started her writing career in fourth grade when she wrote a story about an orphan who opened a pizza restaurant. Oddly enough, her first novel, "Riversong" is about an adult orphan who opens a restaurant. Clearly, she's been obsessed with food and words for a long time now.
With a degree from the University of Southern California in theatre, she’s spent her adult life studying story, word craft, and character. Since 2011, she’s published 20 novels and 3 novellas. Most days she spends at her desk chasing her daily word count or rewriting a terrible first draft.
She currently lives in a suburb of Seattle, Washington with her husband, the hero of her own love story, and their Brady Bunch clan of two sons, two daughters and five cats. Yes, that's four kids and five cats.
