Flying Solo - single parents, second chances and the power of love...

Veteran NY cop, Rick Cooper, heads to his family’s lake house after losing a hostage negotiation, resulting in the death a child. He brings only his dog and his saxophone for company. His agenda includes lots of fishing while figuring out an appropriate career change.  

Single mom, Kristin McCarthy hears the sound of the saxophone gliding through the night air - a healing sound for her daughter. She begins a search for the person who can play so beautifully. Her high hopes fall, however, when the musician turns out to be a cop. The police fell short when she and Ashley needed them most.  But still…if this cop could make a difference…if he can help Ashley…well, Kristin would do anything for her young daughter.

An attractive widow with a damaged kid are the last people Rick needs in his life, and he tries hard to remain aloof.  The ladies, however, knock down his barriers simply by being themselves. Fearful but brave, smart but silly. Before long, warm feelings grow between him and Kristin. Feelings that spark potential for a future together. 

However, before Kristin allows herself to dream, Rick must prove he’s a man she and her daughter can trust. Can they count on him forever?

    I enjoyed the book. Even though it was about a very serious crime, it showed what love can do to overcome the worst in life.

    Just finished Summer at the Lake and am wiping a tear away from my eye. The characters were so real I felt like they were my friends. A very contemporary issue was addressed beautifully. Funny how I kept reading and couldn't stop because I needed to know Ashley would really be fine.

    I think it was very well written. Real life details and a love story not all the bedroom scenes. I know who to do that :).
