Blurb from Heart of the Night:

Hurt by all the secrets and lies, Eli tracks down Gena, intend on getting his son back. But one look at the woman with his little boy tells him that Gena loves Scotty, too.But Eli won’t let his child grow up without a father. When a dangerous man tries to hurt Scotty, Eli takes Gena and his son on a trek from the coast of Maine to his home town–the small island of Grand Isle, Louisiana. Along the way, Eli’s journey of faith changes from bitterness and regret to hope and … a reason to live.

Amanda Cabot’s bio:

With both parents avid readers, it’s no surprise that Amanda Cabot learned to read at an early age. From there it was only a small step to deciding to become a writer. Of course, deciding and becoming are two different things, as she soon discovered. Fortunately for the world, her first attempts at fiction were not published, but she did meet her goal of selling a novel by her thirtieth birthday. Since then she’s sold more than twenty novels under a variety of pseudonyms. Paper Roses is her first book for the CBA market. When she’s not writing, Amanda enjoys sewing, cooking and – of course – reading.

arrives in San Antonio to greet her groom – a man she has never met but
whose letters, her paper roses, have won her heart from afar. But there is
a problem – Austin Canfield is dead, and Sarah cannot go back East.

As Sarah tries to reconcile herself to a future that is drastically changed,
Austin’s brother Clay wants nothing more than to shake the Texas dust from
his boots, but first he must find his brother’s killer. And then there’s

Something is blooming out in the vast Texas landscape that neither Clay nor
Sarah is ready to admit, and the promise of redemption blows like a gentle
breeze through the prairie grasses.
