The Lakeshore Chronicles has captivated thousands of readers with unforgettable characters, warm humor and engaging stories. Revisit the tranquil shores of Willow Lake in this irresistible tale of changing dreams and finding love where you least expect it.

Baseball hopeful Bo Crutcher is about to get his shot at the majors. That is, until life throws him a curveball. When AJ, the son he's never met, lands on his doorstep, Bo's life becomes a whole new ball game. He needs help--fast.

Enter Kimberly van Dorn. Hired to smooth Bo's rough exterior for the media, she expects the kind of shallow pro athlete she's used to handling. But Bo is willing to sacrifice everything for his vulnerable son. Kim can train him to hit a home run with the press, but over a breathtaking winter on frozen Willow Lake, she realizes he has far more to teach her about the game of life...and putting love first.

A really good story, lots of humour, an insight into the sports world, although the ending was a little rushed after the build up, enjoyable read.

Bo just can't seem to catch a break. Potentially alcoholic, a womanizer, and a baseball player whose career has finally (belatedly) taken off, Bo is terrified to be given emergency guardianship of his son. A boy whom he has never met, the kid just doesn't seem to want to get to know him, despite the charisma that usually gets Bo whatever he wants. Kimberly, a sports press agent whose life has hit a major rutt, reluctantly agrees to help Bo get his career – and his life – back on track. Will the two find love in the process? A novel about what really makes family family, Fireside was an enjoyable read for any time of the year, but especially in front of the fire. Although it is nothing spectacular, it is a fun read worth the time, especially for those who want to follow the Lakeshore series.
