Turnaround Farm is a kindle unlimited title available at

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

“I have no idea why you’d think Miss Grant is high maintenance, but it doesn’t matter if she is or not. I’m not asking you to make a life-long commitment to her. Just take her to dinner or a movie. You really need to get out more. Your social life is nonexistent.”

“I don’t think so, Gramps.”

Jeb’s lips marginally tightened. Dan was so stubborn.That was one thing he had inherited from Kyle, although he’d never said so to Dan. Any resemblance to his father horrified his grandson.

This Week: We begin where we left off last week.  Jeb is speaking first.

Uh oh, a LOT of problems to unpack here...really heightens the suspense of how the story will go, and what changes his mind eventually. Great snippet!

I think it's tine for Jeb to back off and stop pushing so hard - it's turning counterproductive.

Wow--a lot of dad issues. That kind of thing is tough to overcome! Excellent writing, Elaine. :-)

Amy Braun said...

Oh boy, this is gonna lead to some serious drama! :D

Diane Burton said...

Wow. Daddy issues galore. Heavy drama. I, too, wonder how she's going to change his mind.

Dad must not have gained many 'Father of the Year' awards.

This poor guy has some serious damage and gramps is right about the heroine being the one to heal those wounds. So much said with so few words.
