One summer isn’t so long
Professor Sara Prentiss is not impressed when best-selling author Adam Merrill arrives on the campus of Chandler College to team-teach her creative writing class, and when Adam’s biggest fan – Sara’s elderly housemate, Olivia – invites him to move into her mansion, Sara is infuriated to find herself sharing a roof with him.
Worse, she’s worried – because Adam’s hunt for his next story leads him to probe a mystery that’s long-buried in Olivia’s past. Digging out the details can only hurt Olivia, but why can’t Adam see that? Is Adam really out to investigate the mystery – or does he plan to end up with Olivia’s house, the elegant mansion called Ashton Court?
Still, Sara can’t help but be fascinated by the man – and as the weeks pass, she starts to wonder if one summer with Adam will be long enough.
