Firefly Summer: Sweet Romance

Cara reviews; 0 Comments

Just about every author I know has one story that is a story of their heart. Some have sold them, others have that story resting in a drawer. Either way, it was a story or characters that had to be written down and captured in pages. For Kathleen Y’Barbo, Firefly Summer is that story. This romance is different from so many that you’ll read because the hero and heroine are both in their 40s. Life has not gone the way either has anticipated, and the core of that difference is a young man they loved and lost. He ties them together in ways that could tear them apart. This story has a rich supporting cast which adds warmth and laughter to the pages. The romance is sweet, at times bittersweet. At its core, Firefly Summer is a journey to redemption through the opportunities of love.

This is a perfect book for those who love a sweet romance that is filled with challenges and hope. (By the way, the paperback is a beautiful pocket sized book.)


A new cowboy romance from award-winning author Kathleen Y’Barbo.

Trey’s biggest challenge isn’t performing surgery…it’s restoring Sessa’s heart!

Artist Sessa Chambers may never recover from losing her prodigal son. Even as she grieves the tragic decisions that led to his death, and left her with a toddler to raise, she’s asked to work on her dream project—restoring carousel horses for the Smithsonian. But she can’t do it on her own…

Dr. Trey Brown can’t pick up a scalpel again. Yes, he acted in self-defense, but the events of that awful night haunt him. He was trained to save lives, not take them. When he goes to the young man’s widowed mother to apologize, she’s not at all what he expected. For one thing, she’s not as alone as he thought—not with the fearsome ladies of the Pies, Books, and Jesus Book Club in her corner. For another, she’s beautiful, and being in her presence is more jolting than any eight-second bronco ride from his former rodeo days. Before he knows it, she’s captured his heart as easily as they capture the fireflies gracing Sessa’s Texas ranch.

How can they overcome their past to embrace a future together?
