On the tail of her bitter divorce, a letter from Colorado throws Maggie Stevens for a loop. In it, she finds out that her father, from whom she has been estranged for 40 years, has died and left her everything. Maggie leaves Texas with dreams of finding fortune and some answers to questions she had long ago stopped asking. Arriving in the small town, Maggie is greeted by quirky townspeople, a handsome stranger, deep-rooted tradition and more questions than answers. As she navigates her father’s past, Maggie learns that her journey and the town have more in store for her than she ever expected. (KENSINGTON, Dec., 318 pp., $15.00)
