Love at Crystal Lake

Not all romances begin with a fairytale. Some begin with a self-help book and a jam-stained tank top. Audra Carter is a practical woman. Falling in love with a man with no direction, like Ethan Lockwood, would take her out of her comfort zone, and she’s not sure she’s ready to invite change into her predictable life.
