AUTHOR: Judy Ann Davis
When architect Elise Springer’s father is injured, she immediately leaves San Francisco to care for him. The last person she expects to encounter in her Pennsylvania hometown is her childhood friend Lucas Fisher. Lucas is investigating his brother’s death, and Elise can’t resist lending a hand.
Lucas longs for the close family ties he never had. He’s back in Scranton to set up a classic car restoration business and build a future. The torch he carries for Elise burns brighter than ever, but before he can declare his love, he must obtain the legal rights to adopt his nephew—and prove his brother’s death was no accident.
As they unearth clues pointing to find a murderer and a missing stash of money, Elise faces a dilemma. Is her career on the West Coast the key to her happiness, or is it an animal-cracker-eating four-year-old and his handsome uncle instead?
Throughout her career, Davis has worked in both education and industry. To date, she has written two novels: Red Fox Woman and Key to Love-- and two collections of short stories: Up on the Roof and Other Stories and Three Merry Mysteries.
Over a dozen of her short stories have appeared in various literary and small magazines and have won awards. She holds a degree in Journalism and Communications from Point Park University in Pittsburgh and is a member of Pennwriters and Romance Writers of America.
She lives with her husband in Clearfield, PA.
