Lost in Love:
A Contemporary Christian Romance
(Modern Conveniences Book 3)
By Leah Atwood
These days, Sunny Evans didn’t live up to her name. She was desperate. As in find-a-husband-online desperate. She had until March to marry or risk losing the bed and breakfast left to her by a quirky aunt who left several odd requirements in her will. When her fiancée showed up, he was nothing as described in his online profile and not in a good way.
After losing the woman he loved to another man, Sean Pearson planned a weeklong escape to his grandfather’s cabin that he remembered from childhood. He needed time away and solitude to reevaluate his life. Unfortunately for him, his GPS got him lost on back roads, and he stopped for directions at the first place he came across, the Crosswinds Bed and Breakfast.
The unexpected detour led to events Sean couldn’t have anticipated, but in a moment of clarity, he saw the opportunity to make a difference in Sunny’s life. Could the GPS have led him to the right place after all?

FBI Special Agent Gabe Marino knows that something sinister is happening in his hometown of Maxwell, Georgia. But even he doesn’t know how big the threat is until he’s assigned to protect a visiting big city lawyer. As Gabe investigates the illegal activity linked to Hope’s client, he tries to caution her, but she ignores his warnings–until it’s her life that’s in jeopardy.
When Hope becomes the target in a deadly corporate cover-up that is directly tied to the biggest trial the town of Maxwell has ever seen, she and Gabe have to find a way to work together. Hope and Gabe race against the clock to uncover the true threat, but can Gabe keep Hope safe in the face of danger or will time run out on them both?
