Book Description

For Love of Bluestone is a collection of the three Welcome to Bluestone novels previously released as three complete novels. Fall in love with Bluestone Lake, Minnesota, and the people who are trying to keep her alive.


War correspondent Leo Ericson returns to his hometown of Bluestone Lake, Minnesota, when his parents notify him his young son is having trouble fitting in at school. Leo doesn’t know how to be a single parent since the death of his wife, and he certainly has no desire to return to Bluestone. But he needs a place for his son, a place where he’ll be with family, while Leo does his job. He’ll stay long enough to get Max settled, then go back to work.
School counselor Trinity Madison watches Leo struggle with his son, trying to overcome the mental barricade she’s erected against the man who sent his son away when he’s perfectly capable of caring for the child. The situation brings about her own unsettled feelings about giving her child up for adoption when she was young. But as she observes Leo’s difficulties, his sacrifices, she softens toward the man.
While he’s in town, he ends up working with some old friends and Trinity on a committee to revitalize Bluestone. The former resort town is struggling and looking for ways to bring tourists back. Leo finds himself charmed, then smitten with the feisty counselor, but will he still love her when he learns her secret?


Beth Lapointe has her hands full--her teenaged sister is struggling with new motherhood, her job as a waitress is becoming more strenuous as her boss is pulled in different directions, and her alcoholic father is demanding she help him or he’ll return to Bluestone.

The last thing she needs is her high school sweetheart to show up live and in person and to realize she still has feelings for him.

Country singer Maddox Bradley has returned to Bluestone, the only place he’s ever known peace. A car accident has the tabloids speculating over whether he’s drinking again, so he heads to the town where he used to spend his summer vacations.

The town where he fell in love for the first time.

He's surprised Beth is still there, but pleased. When he finds out she needs help, he wants nothing more than to give it to her, to make up for leaving her behind all those years ago. But is she willing to take it from a recovering alcoholic who has no plans to stick around?


Quinn Alden is leaving Bluestone. As soon as he can get someone to buy the bar he bought with his Army buddy, the one who didn’t come home, he’s heading for someplace where the fishing is as good, but the winters aren’t so miserable. This was never his dream, the lake, the bar, the girl...

Lily Prater is the heart of Bluestone. As the owner of the landing where people dock their boats, rent a launch or a cabin, she has a lot invested in the town. She’s fighting hard to save her town, hit hard by the recession. Her mind is always spinning with ideas, ideas she can usually get Quinn to help her carry out.

They work together on the summer celebrations, the outdoor movies, the winter carnival, the tension growing between them.

But it takes leaving Bluestone for him to see her as more than his best friend’s girl, and make him wonder if leaving Bluestone for good is what he wants at all...

I loved these stories. I enjoyed meeting the people of Bluestone and wish I knew them. I enjoyed reading about the small town in Minnesota--it kind of reminded me of the "Gilmore Girls" Stars Hollow. (Quinn was a little bit like Luke).

All of the stories were very well-written and kept my interest. The secondaries were great, as well as the heroes and heroines. I'm glad the secondaries (Quinn and Beth) got their own stories.

It was nice to settle down and visit Bluestone.

I would recommend reading the books in order. I fell in love with the characters and could picture the town of Bluestone. I thought about listing which book I enjoyed most but it is too difficult to pick just one. It was a nice easy read and a great purchase for me. I also enjoyed seeing the pictures on the authors website of the town that inspired the books.
