A Love to Stay For
By Amy DeMeritt
A sweet age-gap romance in a quant lakeside town harboring a dangerous mystery.
Joyce Peterson is an international bestselling historical fiction author, who’s often accused by her friends as being a workaholic. Joyce knows finding a balance between work and leisure helps feed her creativity and ensures steady productivity. However, she is stubborn and often fights against the reality that she needs to take a break.
Avery West is a travel journalist looking for a place to lay roots. While she’s out exploring Harbor City, the small lakeside town that she’ll call home for at least a year, she clumsily plants herself in Joyce’s life. Since happenstance often fuels her creative muse, Joyce happily accepts the role of welcome wagon and helps Avery get settled in. The more time they spend together, the more attached they become to each other.
But with fifteen years separating them, and the fact that Avery is a wanderer, Joyce is hesitant to allow herself to acknowledge her feelings for the younger woman. And when the dark and dangerous secrets surrounding a lost local treasure come to light, their relationship becomes further imperiled.
Can Joyce and Avery survive their curiosity of the past so they can have a future together?
