WHAT ARE FRIENDS FOR?
Inviting tech whiz Anton "Zeke" Zekowsky back to participate in a local festival is risky business for cop Darcie Barrett. She hasn't seen Zeke since graduation -- when they became lovers. Plus, Zeke's always had a thing for Darcie's recently divorced committee co-chair. But the town needs Zeke's financial aid, so Darcie ignores her mixed emotions and does what's best -- for everyone else. Thrown together by circumstances, Darcie and Zeke soon have to face their past -- and future. Patricia McLinn begins Seasons in a Small Town with What Are Friends For? (4), an often amusing story that also taps a deep well of emotion.
