The Father-Daughter Picnic
Caroline Bishop has a plan. She intends to find a father for her six-year-old daughter Ava, and she’s going to use an online dating service to do it. Who needs romance when you have the internet? Only problem is, no one meets her requirements, and no one will ever measure up to the husband and father they lost. But Caroline’s job as a medical administrator leaves little time to find a match, especially when one of her patients is the cantankerous Cooper Hollister, whose arrogant son Graham fights her every step of the way.
Graham Hollister is back in Cardinal Point on a mission: manage his father’s care following an accident, and find a replacement to run their family business—Cardinal Point’s historic bank. But Graham has other problems. His career is in a downward spiral, and being in his hometown only brings back painful memories he’d rather not confront.
Caroline and Graham seem to bring out the worst in each other, but why? They need each other and Ava needs them, but can they make peace in time for Cardinal Point’s annual Father-Daughter Picnic?

When a serious student injury propels her to the outside of the gymnastics world, she finds herself broke and alone – until a bequest from a mysterious and unknown aunt takes her on an unexpected journey. Who was Aunt Winnie, and what does the equally mysterious and unknown Mr. Boudreaux have to do with it?
Army veteran, Cole Boudreaux, has returned home a hero to Cardinal Point, Texas, but a few things went wrong with his homecoming.

Cole knows God has a plan, and if he could settle Winnie’s estate and grow his budding security business, he just might figure out what it is. Winnie’s niece is not making it easy. She’s rolled into town with a ton of baggage and secrets she’s not willing to share. Why is Jacey so distant, and why is she so determined to not let him in?
