A Hometown Proposal

Book Three of the Shannon Sisters Series

She’s looking for a second chance to reconnect with her daughter but finds so much more.

Since her husband’s climbing death a year ago, Maureen Shannon’s relationship with her twelve-year-old daughter has spiraled out of control. Desperate, she resigns from her partnership at a legal firm and moves back to her hometown in Whitefish, Montana, with the hope that family and nature can heal their wounds. Her investment in a heli-skiing and lodge operation makes financial sense, but her attraction to the owner doesn’t. He’s everything she’s come to hate—a man who makes his living chasing adventure.

Jake Hartman knows Maureen Shannon is off limits. She’s an investor in his company—a silent investor who’s never silent. Worse, she’s a mom who’s beautiful, intelligent and makes him feel more alive than he’s ever known. A self-confirmed bachelor, he finds himself uneasily contemplating a very different partnership.

But will Maureen be able to let go of her past and build a future with a man who never imagined becoming a husband or a father?

Book Extras

A Hometown Proposal
  • In this last book of The Shannon Sisters trilogy we finally have Maureen--the first born of the Shannon sisters--and her story
  • With this character I knew I was going to be addressing deeply emotional issues. While her sisters have always seen her as forceful, confident and opinionated, in truth Maureen is plagued with insecurities about her failed first marriage and the strained relationship she has with her twelve-year-old daughter Holly.
  • There were times when I was writing A Homecoming Proposal that I wondered if Jake Hartman was the right man for Maureen. He runs a heli-skiing operation and that's dangerous. But Jake won me over in the end. Just as he does Maureen--and hopefully you, too.
  • Writing this story was a joyful and deeply satisfying experience for me. I hope you'll feel the same as you settle in to visit the Shannon sisters one last time.
