Whiterock, Oregon is on the verge of becoming a ghost town. When Gus Loring arrives there, he has no intentions of staying. He's on the run from some very tragic memories. Sally Carruthers has stayed in Whiterock to nurse her father. When he dies, she will leave also. These are their plans until they meet and Gus suffers a shock—literally—when he touches Sally. Unbeknownst to them, there is magic in Whiterock, a magic that refuses to let the town die. Sally and Gus will play a major role in saving the town… whether they wish to or not.

IMPROBABLE SOLUTION is a smooth, easygoing romance. It is easy to understand both the hero and heroine's outlooks on their lives. The magic that weaves itself through the story is a fascinating mystery, and the ending is a bit of a surprise. This is an excellent story for those slow, hot summer days coming up.
