The Carpenter & the Queen
by Michelle Lashier
When single-mom Claire Matthews inherits an old home in Michigan, she starts a new life for herself and her son. But the house is in bad shape and winter makes repairs difficult. Carpenter Paul Sawyer has been hiding since his divorce, making handmade chess sets. But a customer's special request and a bad winter storm give him a second chance at love . . . if he's willing to take it.
