Genres: Romantic Suspense


In the summer of 1969, when the first man has landed on the moon and the world is wrought with war, a small town in Texas finds their hope in an engagement between a bookstore owner and her loan officer, two individuals who aren’t right for each other; especially because one is already married.

Chapman Springs, Texas, brims with possibilities, but many of its citizens struggle to adapt when confronted with progressive social ideas and the changes wrought by the Vietnam War. Brooklyn Williams is at the forefront of change, owning and running a successful bookstore, but the town only tolerates her position because of her purported engagement to her loan officer. When her estranged husband returns from the war, and the town begins to turn on her, she must fight to save her livelihood and her friends, and decide if her love for Leath can bring trust and peace back into her life.

Leath Williams lost more than his arm in Vietnam. He lost Brooklyn's heart. When he returns home, he opens Solace Ranch as a haven for other war-torn soldiers, and struggles to resolve his own inner demons in the process. He hopes to reunite with Brooklyn, but someone wants to put him out of the picture for good. Can Brooklyn and Leath overcome their fears, defeat the enemy without losing the fight, and save their love?


About Angela Smith

Angela Smith

Angela Smith is a Texas native and was dubbed most likely to write a novel during her senior year in

high school since she always had her nose stuck in a book. Although high school was decades ago,

the dream began when her mom read ‘Brer Rabbit’ to her and her sister so often they could recite it

back to each other before ever learning to read. Research is one of her favorite parts of piecing

together a story, and she loves creating new characters. Angela writes romantic suspense and is

branching into other genres, but she hasn’t been able to write one yet where falling in love doesn’t

come into play. She works as a certified paralegal and office manager at the District Attorney’s office

and spends her free time with her husband and the animals on her small farm. Although life in

general keeps her very busy, her passion for writing and getting the stories out of her head tends to

make her restless if she isn’t following what some people call her destiny.
