Author's note: This is a short story, written as part of a "10k in 5 day" competition. It is just over 10,000 words, and not a novella or a complete novel.
Daisy Hewitt has made a happy little life for herself and her young son, Mason. They might not have much and she may not take a lot of time for herself, but she works her rear off at Mrs. Shuster’s diner and she’s thankful every day for what she has.
Cole has been a businessman since before he can really remember. He loves everything about it: the hectic schedule, the high stakes, the excitement and, yes, even the stress. He’s grateful to his great-aunt Eleanor Shuster, who helped him pay the tuition for college that has allowed him to chase his dreams.
When Mrs. Shuster falls ill and can no longer run the Madelia Diner, it’s her great-nephew who is called in from out of town to step in, even though Daisy (and most of Madelia) feels like she would have been the better choice.
As Cole and Daisy are forced to be in close proximity while they spar over ownership of the diner, their initial animosity turns into something else entirely.
Claire Weaver came from one of the wealthiest families in Madelia, groomed from a young age to be a professional ballerina. When her teenage heart fell for a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, her parents uprooted her and moved to the other side of the country.
She returned to Madelia as an adult, opening a dance studio and enjoying small town living.
Daniel McAllister was living the soldier’s dream, traveling to distant lands, immersing himself in new cultures. When a devastating injury lands him stateside again, in the small town he hated as a child, his world fell apart.
Sparks fly when Daniel and Claire are thrown together again, using his design smarts and her imagination to build a beautiful parade float for the town’s Lavender Day parade.
Is a relationship possible even after all these years? Will Claire’s parents interfere once more when they discover she’s seeing that McAllister boy again?
Kate Jacobson took the first bus out of Madelia, Washington the day she graduated high school, and she hasn't looked back. With a blossoming medical career at a busy New York hospital, she has found her calling. But when her best friend is gunned down in front of her by a drug-addled patient, Kate turns back to her small town roots, looking for stability and a place to belong.
Logan McAllister has worked his entire adult life to make the people of Madelia see him as more than the kid from the wrong side of the train tracks. He's built a business with his own two hands, revitalizing the historic landmark homes in town to their former glories. He grew up with parents so completely infatuated with each other, he can't imagine wanting to jump into the suffocating arms of love himself. But when his high school crush Kate comes back to town, he can't help but fan the fires and reignite their old flame.
But not everyone is happy about her return . . .
When Kate's clinic is vandalized, the two set aside the differences stemming from their pasts and set out to find and stop the vandal. As they work to solve one problem, their undeniable feelings for one another present another problem that's even more dangerous-at least for her heart.
Kate can handle the crazy politics. What she can't handle is smart, sexy, reformed bad boy Logan, who keeps showing up on her doorstep, determined to kiss the living daylights out of her.
Logan was wrong for her when she was eighteen, is he even more wrong for her now?
