What New Beginnings Are Made Of
New beginnings take courage… She’s a fifty-five-year-old widow feeling like she’s lost herself. On a whim of her aching heart, Alice McIntyre buys the Star Gazer Inn and is looking for a fresh start…something to put a spark back into her life. But first she has to tell her four sons, who have problems of their own but have smothered her with their protective instincts. She’s lived on the huge South Texas ranch just outside of Corpus Christi since their father carried her over the threshold. She’s raised them on the massive McIntyre Ranch—one of the largest, wealthiest in Texas. It’s been her home and theirs. Will they understand that it’s time for her to leave? Time for her to move on?
The Cabin at Jackson Hole
With the passing of her beloved father, Ava Butterfall is suddenly plunged into financial despair and must work for the first time in her life. Being adventurous and smart as a whip, Ava boldly accepts a position in the rough frontier of Wyoming—but finds herself unprepared for the disaster that awaits her. Soon hopelessly lost in the mountains, she warily seeks shelter at the isolated cabin of Hesh Schodde, a rancher who has begun anew in the remote location of Jackson Hole. Hesh is not pleased with taking in Ava who will only be a distraction for the cowboys on his ranch and another concern for him to watch over.
