A decent read from a decent writer may be faint praise, but readers will enjoy Wingate's story of goings-on in tiny Moses Lake, Tex. Following a heartbreaking divorce, Andrea Henderson and her son, Dustin, are in the town where Andrea spent childhood summers. She is trying to build a career as a social worker as her son struggles to fit in. They meet game warden Mart McClendon when Dustin gets in trouble on the lake, but there is more to the handsome game warden than meets the eye. Andrea and Mart are thrown together when they discover a little girl living with the town recluse. As the mystery of the child slowly resolves, Mart and Andrea's relationship becomes closer. Can they overcome their pasts to reach for a new future? They face more than relationship questions when the girl's mother shows up with her renegade friends. A nice tale to enjoy in front of a roaring winter fire. (Feb.)
