If up and coming realtor Holly Grant can buy Turnaround Farm for her client, her business will boom. Who says you have to have a man in your life to complete you? She’s fine as she is thank you very much. Her first problem is that Jeb Wakefield doesn’t want to sell his farm, and her second problem is Jeb’s grandson Dan, the finest looking man Holly’s ever seen. 

Excerpt: Chapter One
Last week

If he did say so, he had made quite a name for himself in the horse world.

His stomach knotted. If only Kyle...Well, Kyle was another matter altogether. As far as Jeb knew, his only son had done just one good thing during his entire life; he had married Millie Lane and produced Dan. His fingers tightened around his fork. Kyle had ruined the family financially and blackened their name in horse circles by using illegal drugs on the animals in his care.

To make matters worse, he had become addicted to drugs himself. At the time of his death in a high-speed auto chase with the police, he was high on cocaine and waiting to go to trial for illegal gambling and fixing the outcome of a sporting event. His wife had died with him.

This Week: We begin where we left off last week.

Lots of information in that snippet.

The situation is laid out really well, and added depth that Jeb knows he needs Dan's help but that he should rightfully be elsewhere.

I was talking with son #2 recently. He's into psychology and was talking about 'positive trauma' that leads to growth. It sounds like he's successfully turned this trauma into growth.

Great backstory!

You define them well as honorable, self-sacrificing men. The heroine is going to strike it rich despite their financial situation.
