Meet the Donnelly Brothers

Hometown boys make good . . . and find love


Single mom Becca Norton is surprised to discover her high school crush Jared Donnelly is back in town. The motocross champion hasn't been home in years, but the former bad boy is as gorgeous as she remembers. And his kindness toward her kids melts her heart. But when she learns his true purpose in town is to build a motocross school on land near her home, she has to put on the brakes. Her children's welfare is her priority, and her former in-laws have made it clear they don't approve of Jared or his plans. Soon Becca may have to choose between her heart…and her home.

Pastor Connor Donnelly is done with romance. After proposing to his high school sweetheart, Natalie Delacroix, five years ago—and being turned down—he's putting all his time and energy into his community. He's determined to make the Christmas pageant he's directing a success. But family and friends are set on fixing up the good-looking bachelor in time for the holidays. And now that Natalie is back in Paradox Lake—and helping with the pageant—they might just succeed. Because working so closely with Natalie stirs up old feelings…and Connor starts to hope for a second chance with the one who got away. 

Tessa Hamilton never imagined the hardest part of having her best friend help renovate her small-town movie theater would be keeping her heart safe. She can't fall for a man who has no interest in a serious relationship with any woman…and who doesn't know the secret she hides. Besides, Josh Donnelly is too eager to leave Paradox Lake—especially when his estranged father returns. Tessa struggles with the turmoil, but as she falls deeper for the bachelor, she knows she must be honest if there's any chance for them. But will telling Josh put everything at risk—including their friendship?

  1. I keep thinking your covers can't get any better. But, they do.

  2. I just love these covers! And the stories sound so good. I love linked stories.

  3. Oh, Jean I just finished reading Holiday Homecoming and fell in love with the Donnelly family! I just may have to seek out your other books about this family!

  4. Jean, you're a prolific writer. Good for you. I publish two a year, but should try to up my output. What's your secret?

    Terri, you're a speedy writer as well. Any tips you girls want to share?

  5. Ain't that the truth, re my covers? :)

    Thanks, so much Jackie.

    Debby, no more prolific than you. Jared's book came out last summer, Connor's this past December, and Josh's this month. As for my secret, I came off a high powered day job with constant deadlines and thought I could relax and enjoy like more just writing my novels. Ha! I'm driving myself as hard as I was driven at my day job. Aside from setting and keeping regular work hours, I'm not sure I'm recommending my approach.

  6. Working from home has its own challenges! Thanks for making me feel better, Jean, and not so much of a slacker! Hugs! :)
