Mackenzie Cooper took her eyes off the road for just a moment, but the resulting collision was enough to rob her of her life as she knew it.

Forced to start again, she moved to a small town under a new name - Maggie Reid - and her only goal is to stay under the radar. She's thankful for the few friends she's made, although she can't risk telling them too much about her previous life.

But Maggie isn't the only one in this peaceful town with secrets. When a friend's teenage son is thrust into the national spotlight, Maggie is torn between protecting herself or stepping into the glare to be at their side. Will she find the courage to face the world again?

Have you ever known a real life matchmaker? Meet Victoria Lesser, whose day job is to change the lives of those around her for the better . . .

Garrick Rodenheiser is stunned and wary when Leah turns up shivering on his porch. A beautiful woman, miles from nowhere, spells trouble for him. But he can't just slam the door in her face - any more than he can shut out the storm of passion she will bring with her . . .

Authors:
Barbara Delinsky

The final book of the Crosslyn Rise trilogy pits true opposites against each other . . . Like its sisters, The Dream Comes True was written before the age of cell phones, texting, and Google. Fortunately, emotions don't go out of style Nina Stone, the realtor who is marketing Crosslyn Rise, is a bundle of aggressive energy; petite and short-haired, a workaholic driven by the need for independence and financial security. John Sawyer, consortium member and potential buyer, is tall, shaggy-haired, and laid-back; not one to rush through life, he takes his time considering every word and act. He is also a single parent whereas to Nina, children are positively alien.The Dream Comes True is a love story between two people whose lives are so full that they don't think they need love. But here's a timeless notion from an author with over 30 million books in print: we all need love!'Delinsky reminds us that we sometimes need to revisit the past to embrace the future' Diane Chamberlain
