Secrets of Cherry Lake

Collection 1
(A book in the Secrets of Cherry Lake series)
An omnibus of novels by

Small Town SecretsLove lasts a lifetime...

The graduating class of Cherry Lake High School is celebrating their freedom with the traditional camp-out in the Jackson Cherry Orchard on the banks of Flathead Lake, Montana. Among the revelers are four cousins, the grandchildren of town founder and patriarch Nate Jackson, a man who knows first-hand how a life can change on grad night and the personal sacrifices that may be necessary months later.

Joining him on his annual vigil as twilight descends is Pansy Oppenheimer, a free spirit, who left Cherry Lake after graduation to wander the world. She mysteriously returns years later when Nate needs her friendship the most. As they keep watch at the edge of the orchard, they reminisce about their lives and choices; none of them easy, but all of them necessary. Nate and Pansy feel that they are guardians of the town, its children and keepers of their secrets.

Little does anyone know that they harbor a secret of their own...

The Secret Son

A birthday card out of the blue from his estranged father sends successful Seattle marketing man Alex Chernoff on a detour to Cherry Lake in search of answers about his past. A day, maybe two, to tie up loose strings and he'll be out of there, heading for Mexico, margaritas and blondes in bikinis.

Emma Stanhope is all too familiar with hot, rich, entitled guys like Alex. They never hang around for long, especially not for a Plain Jane like herself. No problem. She's smart and logical, like any good scientist, and knows better than to lose her heart.

What Emma doesn't count on is chemistry - of the romantic kind. What Alex doesn't count on is meeting the girl who'll make him want to change his ways. But when he learns that he's a secret from his father's real family, he can't stay in Cherry Lake... even if he wants to.

Will love be enough to convince Alex to stay... for good?

Her Secret Love

Whoever claimed it's better to have loved and lost has never met Jess Palmer.

Small business owner and metalworks artist Damon Brand finally has his future in sight when his past rattles into town in a broken down car stuffed with designer clothes and sky high heels. The last time he saw Jess, he declared his undying love. In return, she stranded him by the side of the road, taking his boots, pants and the tattered remnants of his heart.

So much for the bright lights of LA. Failed actress Jessica Palmer arrives back in Cherry Lake, Montana homeless, destitute, and desperate. She's hoping her grandfather will let her have her inheritance early so she can make a fresh start - anywhere but Cherry Lake. No deal. She has to stay for six months and get a job to prove she's matured. Not easy in a town where she flamed all her bridges in order to flee a wild child reputation and her high school sweetheart.

With every door that's slammed shut in her face, Jess grows more determined than ever to prove she's changed, even if it means she must turn to her first love, Damon, for a job at his gas station. Surely 10 years is enough time for him to forgive and forget...
