Seasons in a Small Town: Winter

The past might be cold, but it's familiar for Anne. And the future? That might be as gray as a mid-winter Illinois sky. She's desperately trying to hold on to the family farm owned by her late husband's great uncle. With Uncle Everett disabled and her new to farming, loans are impossible to get.
Between the farm and the bookkeeping she does for businesses in town, she's working to exhaustion. And she's not good at asking for help. Never has been.
Then here comes Quince.
As an executive of the high-tech company bringing operations to Drago, Illinois - and driving up land prices and taxes - he represents part of the problem. But that doesn't mean Anne can afford to turn down his rent money when Uncle Everett lines him up as a boarder. And - just what she needs -- the two of them hit it off like an old-fashioned comedy team.
Quince is a warm front moving fast through her home and her life, promising spring even when all around is frozen. His quick humor and easygoing ways reach deep into the coldest part of Anne's troubled heart.
But she realizes that behind that front, Quince, too, has icy demons.
Can Anne save not only this farm she loves, but also herself ... and Quince?

Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series:

"Every story in this series is always my new favorite. Sweet, clean, well written. Love these books."

"The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart and I can only hope there is another installment with this small town as its setting."

"Strong characters with enough faults to make them human and real" yet "The other characters in Drago all add to the story rather than taking attention from the main action."

"McLinn delivers a fun, engaging, and emotionally complicated romance."

"Poignant, heart warming" . . . "Funny and heart-wrenching at the same time" . . . "Passionate and sensual without being distasteful or vulgar."
