(Firefly Wishes)
(The second book in the Single Father series)
A novel by


Modern medicine can replace worn, defective hearts, but only love can heal a broken one…

Broken-hearted teacher Rachel Thompson isn’t sure volunteering at Camp Firefly Wishes, a special summer camp for transplant kids and their families, will help her put the pieces of her life back together.

Overprotective single dad James McClain just wants his eight-year-old, Molly, to have a normal summer experience for the first time. Within reason, of course.

Molly knows her dad worries about her all the time. She worries about him, too. What he needs is someone else to think about. Someone else to be there for him, just in case her transplanted heart goes bad.

Take a determined eight-year-old matchmaker, add moonlight, fireflies, and heartfelt wishes, and odds are a summer romance is in the making.

But summer always ends, fireflies fade, and Rachel’s already lost one child. How can she give her barely-patched-together heart to this man and his medically-fragile daughter?
