Emily Parker had it all-a loving a husband, a successful landscaping business they ran together, a beautiful home in Colorado, and a baby on the way. But when her husband becomes ill and passes away, she's left with some difficult questions. Should she stay in the home they built together? Should she sell the business? Will she be able to raise the baby on her own? Gavin Bledsoe has traded in a successful Wall Street career and a failed relationship for the simplicity and solitude of his childhood hometown. Though his last relationship failed, a part of him wants to love again. When he finds out his best friend and wife are going to have a baby, and with his mom's constant interest in his love life, he begins to consider dating again. While back home visiting her family over Thanksgiving, Emily runs into Gavin at the grocery store. Still grieving for her husband, she's not ready to date, but she is moved by Gavin's compassion and agrees to dinner with him as friends. The two connect, but both realize the timing is not right. By Christmas, Emily decides to sell her home and business and move back to her hometown. Will the timing finally be right for Gavin and Emily? Will she overcome her grief and find Joy in the Morning? Author Elizabeth Howell lives in southwest Colorado with her husband and two children.
