Madeline Stuart has made one too many careless mistakes at her high-powered job and is asked to take a highly suggested vacation.
But who could blame her scattered thinking? She’s reeling from a breakup with her long-term boyfriend and her mother’s recent death. While trying to fill the endless hours of free time, Madeline’s curiosity is piqued when she finds an old letter hidden in her grandmother’s antique writing desk addressed to Josephine Amaud in Comfort Crossing.
It seems like a perfect time for a road trip to deliver the long-lost letter. What better way to keep busy?
Deserted by his big-city girlfriend because he’s a “country bumpkin," Gil Amaud, a business owner in Comfort Crossing, Mississippi, has sworn off women…
… then he meets Madeline who needs his help. How could he refuse her?
They soon discover the love letter was written many years ago by Josephine’s first beau, Paul, but she never received it. While they try to unravel the mystery of how the letter ended up in the desk and work together to locate Paul, both Gil and Madeline try to deny the attraction developing between them.
Can a big-city woman and a small-town businessman help reunite the star-crossed lovers? And can they find a way to put aside their differences to build a future together in this sweet, heartwarming tale of love and forgiveness?
Maybe, just maybe, a second chance is all they really need.

An easy way to beat the confinement we are observing
Pleasant people, places and possibilities. Very easy to read and yet satisfying. Love the folks and will keep in touch with them by reading Kay’s books. Going to signup on website. Thank you for the rhythm you captured for small town USA.
I thought this was an excellent story and certainly would recommend it.
