After fifteen years of her husband never having time for her, Lindy Coats moves with her teenaged daughter to their summer cottage on the shores of Lake Michigan outside the town of Blueberry Beach.
She doesn’t want a divorce, she just wants…something. Something more than being a single mom yet doing a man’s laundry.
With a lonely single dad on one side of her, a crochety old business owner on the other and a young mother with terrible secrets and a son fighting leukemia across the road, it doesn’t take Lindy long to discover that learning to enjoy life is less about what she chooses to do for herself and more about what she chooses to do for others.
As she sinks into the small town atmosphere, healing her soul and excited at a new business opportunity, her ex shows up, wanting to reconcile.
Can she decide between her bright tomorrow or come to see the values of yesterday’s treasures?
Anitra Pollard has lived in Blueberry Beach all her life, an idyllic small, lakeside town where regular people go to escape real life.
Unfortunately Anitra’s real life couldn’t get much worse, despite the idyllic setting.
Her husband left not long before her oldest son was diagnosed with leukemia. Worse, the head doctor on the team assigned to her son looks very much like the man she had a short, but very sweet, summer fling with…and the father of the child she carries.
Her life couldn’t get any harder or messier, but she will let nothing get in the way of getting the very best care for her son, even if it means staying married to her cheating husband to keep his health insurance and rebuffing the overtures of the doctor who thinks he recognizes her.
Thankfully she has the support of her friends and neighbors in Blueberry Beach – her safe harbor in the middle of life’s storms.
But even they can’t protect her from the heartache of losing everything she’s always held dear.
Will her new baby be the beginning of tomorrow’s blessings?
They both want to make things work, but will their children come between them?
Gage has been happy in Blueberry Beach, living above the store on the Main Street, working from home and raising his two girls. Alone.
The tightknit community supports each other and his daughters enjoy working in the ice cream shop and playing in the beach band.
When Zariah and her teenage niece, Macie, move in across the street, opening a clothing boutique, Gage’s attraction to her is immediate. Their relationship seems too good to be true. Or maybe it’s Macie that’s too good to be true.
When Macie is caught in a crime spree that includes stealing cars, destroying property and dealing drugs, the small community is shocked and appalled.
Will Gage and Zariah’s relationship be able to weather this storm? Will Blueberry Beach ever feel safe again?
