A Hometown Romance Novel

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?

Firefly Summer by Author Kathleen Y'Barbo is a fantastic book. There are so many different aspects in this book I enjoyed reading. I love the setting is a small hometown with an adorable but nosy book club that added great humor. The author is excellent with her storyline that captured my attention and held it through the whole book. Even though this book is a romance and fiction book, I love the way the author brings forth a few meaningful messages that we can take to heart and also use in our lives. I definitely enjoyed reading Firefly Summer by Author Kathleen Y'Barbo and I highly recommend reading this book. I'm anticipating what new book the author will have for us next.
