❤ CAN SHE RISK LETTING HIM MELT HER? ❤
Seasons in a Small Town: Winter
"What an endearing bunch!" -- 5-star review
The past is cold, but it’s familiar for Anne. And the future? Hers might be as gray as a mid-winter Illinois sky. She’s desperately trying to hold on to the family farm owned by her late husband’s great uncle. With Uncle Everett disabled and her new to farming, the make-or-break loans are impossible to get. And time will run out when spring comes.
Between the farm and the bookkeeping she does for businesses in town, she’s working to exhaustion. And she’s not good at asking for help. Never has been.
Then here comes Quince.
As an executive of the high-tech company bringing operations to small-town Drago, Illinois – and driving up land prices and taxes – he represents part of Anne’s problem. But that doesn’t mean she can afford to turn down his rent money when Uncle Everett lines him up as a boarder. And – just what she needs -- the two of them hit it off like an old-fashioned comedy team.
Quince is a warm front moving fast through her home, her life, and her heart, promising spring even when all around is frozen. His quick humor and easygoing ways reach deep into the coldest part of Anne’s troubled heart.
But she realizes that behind that front, Quince, too, has icy demons.
Can Anne save not only this farm she loves, but also herself … and Quince?
Warm Front, Book 4 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Seasons in a Small Town series, will captivate readers who love passionate contemporary romance with a spark of humor.
"Anne and Quince and all the people of Drago are in good hands with McLinn. I'm not a small town girl but I enjoy the friends and neighbors in this community. Good work!" -- 5-star review
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.”
“The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart and 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.”
