Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

just what the doctor ordered... maybe... Searching for Home by Jill Weatherholt

"My interest was immediately grabbed upon opening this latest story; the characters were so clearly written, and I could visualize not only how they looked, but how they were feeling – whether an adult or a child. Jill Weatherholt always seems to nail the characters, even the children! That is an admirable skill, especially as I experience the truth of how her younger characters act and feel. Beautiful."

When injured professional bull rider Luke Beckett returns to his hometown to recover, he doesn’t expect his B and B host and physical therapist to be his first and only love, Meg Brennan. He’s also unprepared for Meg’s adorable triplets to steal his heart. Luke’s past has him doubting he’s good enough for Meg and the children, but they might be just what the doctor ordered to help him heal…


Appliances should never be allowed to break on a Monday morning.

Meg Brennan unplugged the toaster oven, launching sparks and puffs of smoke into the kitchen of the Trout Run Bed and Breakfast.

“Should I call the fire department, Aunt Meg?” Six-year-old Tia Petrino sprung from the cedar bench that lined one side of the table.

Meg scooped the blackened pastries from the oven and tossed them into the sink. “That won’t be necessary.”

Tilly placed her elbows on the table and her hands under her chin. “Oh, man. Those were the last three doughnuts.” Her lower lip rolled.

Meg pulled in a slow and steadying breath. One day at a time. That’s how she’d handled things since her sister and brother-in-law abandoned their triplets and the B&B last year. She glanced toward Tucker sitting at the end of the table. The poor child hadn’t smiled since his parents left. First his father and then his mother. “Tuck, we don’t have enough time for your favorite chocolate chip pancakes, but would you like some cereal instead?”

“I don’t care.” He shrugged his shoulders and opened the book in front of him.

Meg considered his words. Sadly, Tucker didn’t seem to care about much of anything.

The front doorbell chimed. Meg glanced at her watch. Time was like an icy road this morning. The kids had to catch the school bus soon.

“I’ll get it!” Tilly bolted toward the front of the house. Her yellow tennis shoes with pink laces screeched against the hardwood floor.

The child had never met a stranger. Meg tossed the red dish towel on the granite countertop and moved toward the hall. The front lock clicked, and the hinge in need of tightening on the screen door squeaked.

“Wow! Are you a real-life cowboy? Like the ones we see on TV?” Tilly’s question echoed down the hall.

“I was interested in a room, but I noticed the tarp on one side of the house. Are you open?”

Meg’s ears burned at the familiar deep voice.
