The Women of Whitfield (Book 1: The Storm Within, Book 2: Second Wind, Book 3: Barefoot Days) by Darlene Deluca

Welcome to Whitfield, a small Kansas town that’s home to three fiercely loyal and protective longtime friends.

Claire Stapleton is a strong, active woman who enjoys close bonds of friendship and community in the charming small town of Whitfield. With a flair for entertaining, she’s happy in her roles as mother, wife and civic leader. And she’s good at them. But when the rock-solid ground on which her life is built begins to crumble, she has trouble moving forward.

Confused and off-balance, she finds a way to ease her pain, but it sets her on a destructive course that threatens her relationships with longtime friends and the daughter who never gives up on her.

When a devastating tornado rips through the small town of Whitfield, Dana Gerard’s home is reduced to rubble and her well-ordered life to chaos. In the wake of the disaster, she finds herself in financial straits and confronted by challenges that test her limits.

With support from I’ve-got-your-back friends, Dana begins the daunting task of rebuilding. Change greets her from all directions – at work and within her own family. At a crossroads, Dana is forced to see her life with a new vision.

Mary Logan believes in the goodness of people. She believes in grace under pressure. But when the ugliness of human nature touches her family, and a series of seismic events shake up her world, she’s put to the test again and again. Facing the possibility of heart-wrenching loss, Mary finds herself breaking commitments, forcing smiles, and keeping secrets. Until now, her cup has always been half full.

Will a positive outlook be enough to withstand the challenges ahead?

Whiskey Girl by Grea Warner

I’ve been called many names—mid-kid, wild child, Ella Bella, preacher’s daughter, and probably a lot of others behind my back. Whiskey Girl, though, is top shelf. It’s not necessarily the most accurate. But it’s my favorite because of who crowned me with it.

Entering the bar, all I wanted was a temporary escape. I needed a moment of not comparing my life to my perfect sister’s. And that definitely meant a shot of something strong … something that would leave an impression. Little did I know, it wouldn’t be the alcohol but the stranger sitting beside me.

When fate traumatically threw us together a second time, the initial bond I had with that man strengthened. Maks understood sister issues. He understood being the undervalued family member. He understood loss. He understood me.

What Maks didn’t understand was my ability to protect myself from being hurt. I did it when playing sports, and I had learned to do the same with relationships. That’s why when it came to our goodbye, I needed to be the strongest proof and fly away.

But bottles break. Wings get clipped. And my directionless life suddenly seemed to have a plan of its own.

The Man from Cabin Number Five by Chrysteen Braun

But when she visits the cabin where her father ended his life, Alyce has to accept she may never know the true story.

Annie is looking towards her future while Alyce needs to put the past to rest. In parallel stories, both women are drawn to the rustic mountainside cabins as they search for the missing pieces---but they soon discover that the cabins have their own stores to tell.
