When her mother, Allegra, is diagnosed with leukemia, Mariah rises to the challenge of running the caf?: mastering her mother's famous fudge and chatting up customers -- including a man who might just reawaken her heart. Meanwhile, Lindsay's controversial entry in a major national science contest creates a minor maelstrom in the cosseted Monterey Bay community. And Allegra, with one last great love affair in her, will revisit a man she loved so many years ago, and disclose the biggest secret of the Moon family: the identity of Mariah's father. Will the Moon women recognize this as the moment to do away with their family history of dubiously fathered children, and learn to forgive others and themselves in order to move forward?

"Skye Elliot is given a choice after her car accident--jail or rehab--and her ex-husband, a bull rider who introduced her to the party scene, gets custody of their four-year-old daughter Gracie. It takes Skye eight months to get clean, but the day she is released, she has one plan: to be a good mother--better, at least, than Skye's own selfish mother and absent dad. Owen Garrett hasn't seen his daughter in ten years. He, too, needs to make amends. Newly out of prison, he picks her up from rehab and together they set off to find Gracie, and to forge a relationship that transcends the hurt and anger that have brewed between them for almost a decade. In the meantime, they find Margaret Yearwood, too--Owen's lost love whom he left when he turned himself in for a long-ago crime. Owen's Daughter is a stand-alone novel that brings back characters from Mapson's treasured novel Blue Rodeo, and introduces them to the beloved cast of Solomon's Oak and Finding Casey. With its father-daughter story and characters who overcome personal failings against great odds, Owen's Daughter is a story of love and family that will enchant Mapson fans both old and new"--
