Can't Turn Away
John Marshall has spent the last three years of his life travelling the world. When he discovers Founders, a small coastal town cut off from the rest of the world by the very geography that makes it beautiful, he thinks he has finally found the one place where he can rest, and where his past will never catch up to him. That is until a local rancher's daughter with a familiar name and a spit-fire attitude wanders into his warehouse and sets his world spinning. Everyone knows what Delores "Della" Whitely should do with her future. With a brilliant head for numbers and the voice of an angel, Della could write her own career ticket. The only problem is that she is tired of everyone else deciding what is best for her. Taking a stand she accepts a date with the all too tempting new guy in town. Suddenly her dreams start to take shape before her eyes, but all too soon a terrifying reality sets in. Is the secret he is hiding putting her happy ending - and her life - at risk?

About Chris McFarland

She currently resides in the Willamette Valley, Oregon with her handy mailman (er, husband) and two VERY energetic and creative sons.
