THE SUMMER HE CAME HOME
Stone’s first book in her new Bad Boys of Crystal Lake series is a definite crowd pleaser, with lots of heart. The return of the prodigal son and other themes of forgiveness and second chances are at the forefront of the story. With superb characterization and a cast of secondary characters who will have you salivating for the next book, Stone’s new series is off to a rollicking start.
After 10 years away, a tragedy brings rock star Cain Black back home to Crystal Lake. With the past haunting him, Cain has no immediate plans to stay long term, but one stolen moment with Maggie O’Rourke makes him start thinking otherwise. Maggie, a single mother with her own secrets, has no plans for love, but that was before the prodigal son returned. With the support of their family and friends, will they be able to move beyond their pasts and find unexpected love in Crystal Lake? (SOURCEBOOKS, Apr., 360 pp., $7.99)
