Interview with Lyn Cote
Dr. Jake McLure is a veterinarian in Hope, Wisconsin. Life is busy. Fortunately, he found a new office manager, since the previous one left to start her family. The bad news is that he's attracted to his new employee, but he doesn't seem to be someone she's attracted to in return. What he didn't need is his dad coming to stay for a few weeks.
Amy Broussard is raising her twin nieces as her own. Bella and Beth are her life. What a praise it was when she found a daytime job, instead of the night job she had. And soon they'd have a new home, thanks to Habitat for Humanity. Only, with the bitter winter they were having, things were going slow.
Wonderful characters—both human and furry ones—and a story-line that can pull the reader in and keep you there.
Marc Chambers had been in a serious accident in the beginning of the year. He was healed from all of his breaks, bumps, and bruises…but not from the emotions. The guilt that caused nightmares. The guilt that clung to him. The guilt that said he didn’t deserve happiness in his life.
Rosa Santos also carried guilt. Her son, Johnny, had no father to love him. She’d made bad choices as a teen and felt the guilt of it even now. She doesn’t feel deserving of the Habitat for Humanity house she’s getting. Or that she deserves a good man.
God forgives when we ask Him. It’s our human nature that clings to that guilt. As if we enjoy beating ourselves with it daily. Marc and Rosa has a chance to have love and a family…if only they can lay that guilt at God’s throne and not pick it up again. Loved the story and the characters. If you cry easily, you may want tissues nearby.
Sylvie Patterson owns a bookstore in Winfield, Wisconsin. She rents the downstairs of her aunt's Victorian. Winters are slow, but come nice weather...it brings plenty of tourists and business. When her cousin comes for a visit from Alaska, Sylvie's pretty excited. To top that off...her old crush has come for a visit as well.
Nick Reynolds is loving his life of solitude. On the land that has been in his family for several generations. And looking forward to working with his huskies, training them for the upcoming sled race. And then things started happening around him...aimed at him.
Megan Blair had her business degree and should be in Chicago...using her degree. Making good money. But she had to get away. So here she was in Winfield, Wisconsin making ends meet by working for her sister at Audra's Place. When a chance came for another part-time job caring for dogs...she took it.
The first book in this series, Precarious Summer, introduces the reader to Megan as it's her sister's story. Wonderful stories with characters that I really enjoyed.
Lois Blair, Audra and Megan’s mom, had been on the outskirts of her girls’ lives for a long time. It was time to change that. So, she decided to come back early from Florida. Winfield, Wisconsin, was still blistery cold, but she missed her girls and granddaughter. Good thing she returned as it seemed she was needed desperately by a dog and his mistress.
Dr. Jacob Petit had been alone for a year now. He missed Janey. Now, he stayed busy in his veterinary practice. When Lois brings in a dog that the police hope will give a clue to the dog’s owner, he finds her fascinating. And the more he gets to know her, the more he likes her.
After twelve years of being a widow, Lois feels her loneliness for the first time. Now she’s found herself caring for a woman and her dog. And she also finds herself caring for the local vet. It is another beautiful story, a tissue-handy story for those of us who cry easily, and a very intriguing storyline.

Schoolteacher Ellen Thurston never expected to find love in Pepin, Wisconsin. But the moment she discovers a baby boy outside her door, it's love at first sight. While the townsfolk don't approve of Ellen as a single mother, what worries her most are her feelings for the handsome farmer who defends her decision to keep the child.
Ellen is far above the reach of a German immigrant like Kurt Lang. Especially one weighted with responsibility. Kurt knows how hard it is to raise a child alone, but he will do whatever it takes to help make Ellen's dream of a family come true.
Quaker Rachel Woolsey dreams of having her own bakery and her own homestead. But the odds are stacked against her--until the handsome ex-soldier she nurses back to health offers to help her. Like Rachel, Brennan Merriday is an outsider. But he'll be the temporary ally she needs, and her foolish attraction will fade once he's gone.
At first, the only thing Brennan wants to know about Pepin, Wisconsin, is how fast he can leave it. Perhaps in Canada he'll find peace after a bloody war. Yet repaying his debt to the pretty baker offers unexpected solace. She saved him once. Now he longs to rescue dreams of family--for both of them.
