Small-town life at its heart-tugging best! Curl up and let this one wrap around you like a warm blanket. A must read!
Two years have passed since violence and arson brought Shady Gully and its citizens to the brink of destruction, but now is the time for healing and new beginnings. And a wedding is just the thing to bring everyone together…
Or is it?
As PETEY and VIOLET return to Shady Gully for the Big Event, they bring a myriad of secrets. Violet, a prodigy destined for medical accolades, prepares to shock her family with her game-changing plans, while Petey drags into town bruised and humiliated after a humbling step toward his own veiled dream.
While Shady Gully has prospered under MAYOR LUKE, Petey’s older brother, the town continues to quarrel over the churches destroyed by the fires. Sadly, the ceaseless debate leaves Shady Gully’s fabled four-way-stop vacant, allowing an opening as a long-haired oddball armed with a ragtag set of grills shows up and sets up camp.
Despite the dispute, DESI and ROBIN power-through the wedding planning, while MEADOW, the mother of the bride, struggles with resentment as the festivities dredge up her own painful history. To complicate matters, a suspicious character from Shady Gully’s past turns up, rousing bad memories and adding to the fracas.
Surely Shady Gully needs a miracle to restore decorum and heal old wounds?
Perhaps one will come in the form of TIMOTHY, the beloved pastor from Paint Me Fearless, (book 1 in the Shady Gully Series) as his arrival triggers a staggering truth and serves up a colorful palette of justice.
An unraveling, a crackpot with a spatula, and a long-awaited reckoning—and romance—erupt at Shady Gully’s grandest event yet!
