After the RainLarge Print - 2013
When photographer Suzanne Paris, on the run from her ex-fiancé, lands in Walton, Georgia, she's pretty sure she's never seen a town so small. It's a far cry from the life she left behind -- and Joe Warner is nothing like any man she's ever known. He's the mayor of Walton, a teacher, and the widowed dad of six children.
But something about Joe's slow Southern warmth lights Suzanne up in places that have been cold for far too long -- and tempts her to look at life through a whole new lens. She knows the day will come when her past will catch up with her and she will have to move on, but how can she leave when Joe and half the population of Walton have entwined themselves around her heart?
Joe has very little time for anything resembling a relationship, especially with a pretty out-of-towner who seems to be keeping secrets. Yet Joe can't help but wonder if the way she smiles at him means that he's made a dent in the sturdy wall around her heart. Is it possible that there's a glimmer of sunshine behind her gloom?
