A woman’s journey through tragedy leads to the discovery of love in a novel about hope and survival by New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee.
When a wildfire nearly destroys Parker Sinclair’s family home, it’s just one more disaster to add to her mountain of stress. For the past two years, she has shouldered the responsibility of raising her younger brother and sister after their parents’ untimely deaths. Forced to leave college for a crappy job that barely pays the bills, Parker manages her family property, which consumes every aspect of her life. Now winter is coming and the forecast isn’t spreading sunshine on the dark cloud over her head. The last thing Parker needs is a mudslide destroying everything she has worked so hard to maintain.
Colin Hudson’s job as a public works supervisor is to protect Parker’s property and neighborhood from further damage. But it’s a little hard when the owner of the land is a control freak who tries to do everything herself. The hardworking, attractive young woman is far from the “hot mess” she claims to be. In fact, her tight grip of control is one of the things that attract him the most. It’s also the hardest to crack. Now Colin’s working overtime to help Parker open up her heart, trust him, and let him in.
As Parker and Colin work together to keep her home and neighborhood safe, they may be in for another disaster. Or they may just realize that sometimes it takes destruction to create something new.

From New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes a dazzling series about newfound friendship, unexpected love, and second chances.
Cynical divorce attorney Lori Cumberland lives by one motto: Love is grand, but divorce is a hundred grand. With one failed marriage under her own personal belt, Lori had fallen hard and early—and it isn’t something she plans on repeating. She’s content focusing on the temporary marriages of her rich and famous clients. When she joins some of her recent divorcées on a celebratory cruise, her only vow is fun, sun, and new friends. But Lori finds herself tempted by a jury of one.
For Reed Barlow, falling into the world of private investigation was easy. He knows the law and knows how to avoid breaking it—all while doing his job. His rule to live by? No emotion, no involvement…until Lori. His charming smile and cocky attitude distracts Lori and lowers her guard, which is exactly what Reed desires.
But what appears as a one-time-only flirtation may be a plot orchestrated by Reed. As he’s taking his investigation to a dangerous level, it’s Lori who could end up in jeopardy. Reed has only one shot for Lori to grant him a second chance. But if he comes clean with her, he blows his cover. And that just might cost him the opportunity for an alliance of family…and of love.
Der romantische Auftakt der neuen »Happy End in River Bend«-Reihe von Bestsellerautorin Catherine Bybee um drei wunderbare Freundinnen.
Melanie Bartlett? Die startet beruflich mal richtig durch! Das dachten alle in River Bend, als Mel zum Studieren nach Kalifornien ging. Zehn Jahre später sieht das leider anders aus. Abgebrannt kehrt die Single Mom zurück, mit ihrer süßen Tochter Hope im Schlepptau und ohne Idee, wie es weitergehen soll. Aber River Bend nimmt sie mit offenen Armen auf: Ihre besten Freundinnen Zoe und Jo sind für Mel da, in Miss Ginas B&B-Pension findet sie nicht nur eine Unterkunft, sondern auch Arbeit. Und dann ist da Wyatt Gibson. Zwischen dem sexy Bauunternehmer und Mel funkt es so gewaltig, dass sie sich ernsthaft fragt, ob eine Zukunft zu dritt nicht wunderbar wäre. Sie braucht nur noch etwas Zeit, sich zu entscheiden.
Doch dann holt die Vergangenheit sie ein. Und plötzlich bleibt Mel keine Zeit mehr …
Bis Mittwoch unter der Haube ist der Auftakt zu Bybees populärer Weekday-Brides-Serie.
Blake Harrison, reich, adelig, charmant, muss bis spätestens Mittwoch verheiratet sein. Er hofft dabei auf Hilfe von Sam Elliot. Doch statt dem erwarteten seriösen Heiratsvermittler sitzt Blake nun einer Frau gegenüber: Samantha Elliot. Sie ist schön, weiß was sie will und hat eine Stimme, für die Männer normalerweise 0900er-Nummern wählen.
Die Besitzerin des Eheanbahnungsinstituts Alliance steht nicht mit auf der Liste der heiratswilligen jungen Damen. Bis Blake ihr für ein einziges Ehejahr zehn Millionen Dollar bietet. Was klingt wie ein unmoralisches Angebot, ist für Samantha eine riesige Hilfe: Mit dem Geld kann sie die Pflege- und Behandlungskosten für ihre Schwester bezahlen. Sie darf sich nur nicht anmerken lassen, wie anziehend sie ihren Ehemann auf Zeit findet, und nicht in seinem Bett landen.
Aber Blakes heiße Küsse und sein sexy Charme sind einfach unwiderstehlich.
Liebe ist im Ehevertrag der beiden allerdings nicht vorgesehen.
Waitress and single mom Jessica “Jessie” Mann is practical to a fault. Even if she had time to date, which she doesn’t, she’d be determined to provide her son with a more secure upbringing than the one she had—and that would mean a husband with big bucks. When Jack Morrison—a sexy-as-sin, seemingly broke customer with a cowboy hat and a seductive grin—tries to flirt with her, she shoots him down. She doubts a carefree dreamer like Jack can provide the financial stability she needs. Yet with Christmas just weeks away, and Jessie not wanting to spend it alone, the charming Texan is proving hard to resist.
As the heir to the Morrison luxury hotel empire, Jack is used to being fawned over. But Jack needs someone who will fall in love with him—not his wealth. He’s set his sights on Jessie, though her hardened heart just might get in the way…To be sure, he conceals his true identity and offers to help Jessie find the rich husband she seeks. But Jack’s daring charade may rob him of the holiday wish he wants most of all…
Voted Most Likely to Succeed, Melanie Bartlett ended up anything but. The down-on-her-luck single mom wants a complete do-over—is that too much to ask? With her family long gone from River Bend, strong, independent Mel is as surprised as anyone to end up in the quaint small town she once called home. But with her friends, Jo and Zoe, by her side, and a comfortable room at Miss Gina’s quirky bed-and-breakfast, she just might have turned the corner on a new life.
Wyatt Gibson never liked the big city. River Bend suits the ruggedly handsome builder just fine. Wyatt knows he’s home, even if that means being charmed by the appearance of Melanie and her spunky, adorable daughter. Is Wyatt’s calm devotion—even amid a coming storm—enough to convince Mel she may have found a home to call her own, a family that never leaves, and a true love to last a lifetime?
