Blue Line Stories

Setting is the common thread in these tales of love and growth. Each takes place in Upstate New York, inside the Adirondack Park—the border of which is commonly called the Blue Line.


The Mountains that Ground Us

Cecilia McDonald ran away from college with a degree in heartache and a ton of debt. Five years later, she lives a quiet existence in her tiny hometown, scraping by on bartender’s wages. Life is predictable—until the night a barroom brawl ends with a dead customer.

Enter Angus Terry, the murder victim’s grouchy, gorgeous, man-beast of a son. When he and Cecilia clash over custody of his father’s injured dog, they unwittingly set off a chain of events that will bind their lives together indefinitely. But time changes everyone, and Angus might not be the monster that he seems. As Cecilia’s past and present collide, she struggles to learn to live and love fearlessly again. Can she? Or will she end up broken-hearted?
