Catie Hayes about this book: This story is a complete novella that builds to a dramatic conclusion with an unexpected twist. Set in the height of summer in 1950 in a sleepy American town, Loretta Summer is a mid-century romance with a twist. It embodies the feminine 50's with a dark edge. Loretta runs from Rio, Nevada, after tiring of her abusive husband who gambles every penny she earns. She arrives with a case of money int he trunk of her Chevrolet, money she believes is hers, but there are criminal connections to her ex-husband that she never knew about. News reports of an infamous robbery foreshadow the danger that follows Loretta. A quiet widower, Beau Denehy, attracts her attention. He embodies everything that she has never experienced since her parents died--strength, chivalry, honesty, and loyalty. Loretta had forgotten what family could be like until she met this attractive farmer and his two young children. Unless Loretta can get rid of the stolen money that ties her to her corrupt husband, she cannot find love, anonymity or safety. If you pine for the simplicity and style of the 1950s like I do, and favor slow burning true love, you will enjoy Loretta Summer. Catie Hayes 2016.
