About the Book

After high school tragedy forced Meredith to move to Oregon, but five years later, a dear friend passes away and leaves his business—a restaurant, bar and hotel called The Serenade, to her in his will. Meredith isn’t sure she should go home. For one thing, she has never run a business before and doesn’t want to fail in the business her friend spent decades building up. For another thing, she’s still afraid of her abusive former stepfather, Raymond, and she has no idea where and when he might turn up or what he might still be capable of. But there is someone there she hopes she will see, and that is Pete—who broke off their engagement over circumstances that neither of them could control.

She ultimately decides to move back home, and returns in the summer with her five year old son, Grant. It isn’t long after the grand re-opening of The Serenade that she actually does run into Pete. But there is a very long, difficult road ahead of Meredith, Pete and Grant, that nobody could have foreseen. A road that, without the undying support of a circle of steadfast friends would have been impossible to travel.

About the Author

Author Laurie Adair Grove
Author Laurie Adair Grove

It was with great joy that Laurie Adair Grove published her first novel, Crossroads Serenade, in July of 2012. In June of 2014 she celebrated again when the sequel, The Pink Victorian, was published.

Laurie called Montana home for a number of years and loves it still, so she set her two books in a fictitious town in the Big Sky Country.

Some characters in the books are just itching to talk more, Laurie says, so she wouldn’t be surprised if more stories come from the direction of Crossroads, Montana.
