LOVE WILL FIND A WAY
Gabriela O Brien is devoted to the girls at Briarwood Academy even when their bad behavior earns them an entire summer at a remote campground in Echo Lake, Vermont. When the headmaster assigns Gabi to be their chaperone, how can she refuse? A long, hot summer with neither indoor plumbing nor wireless access might be just what she needs to get her own life in order right?
Before Briarwood took over Camp Echo, Luke Magellan spent years there helping troubled boys. When four spoiled rich girls and their seemingly uptight den mother show up for the summer, it s hard to hide his amusement as he watches them tackle the great outdoors. But it s even tougher to resist the passion he sees in Gabi especially when he learns about her past, and sees how much she cares about her students. Is this destined to be just a grownup version of a summer-camp romance or can they find enough in common to build a love for all seasons?

In this charming contemporary, third in the Echo Lake series (following Heart Like Mine), Gabriela O’Brien, the idealistic house mother to a quartet of troublesome prep-school girls, finds unexpected love and fulfillment after she and her charges are temporarily exiled to a rundown camp for a month. Meant as a last-ditch punishment for the girls, it’s no picnic for Gabi either, and she sees her chances of making a difference at the elite Briarwood Academy slipping away. But Camp Echo’s hunky handyman, Luke Magellan, has a knack for helping people: soon he’s showing Gabi’s students how to work together and survive in the outdoors, while teaching Gabi the ways of love. With a wry, self-aware sense of the rules of romantic comedy, this romance hits all the usual notes. McGinnis crafts a sweet, emotionally layered tale about dropping barriers to let one’s true nature shine, and the result is an entertaining, if predictable, happily ever after.
