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?

My thoughts: FIREFLY SUMMER is such a cute southern romance. Set deep in the heart of Texas, it's about a middle aged couple who've both loved and lost. I could so relate to Sessa. Any mom of a prodigal son could. I hope my son doesn't turn out as Sessa's did but he keeps my prayer life active. I love the carousel touch and the firefly angle.  I loved the humor, the southern charm, Sessa and her supportive family and friends and of course, Trey who is a real hero.  The cover is simply adorable. 5 stars.
