Jen Gilroy grew up under the big sky of western Canada. After many years in England, she now lives in a small town in eastern Ontario where her Irish ancestors settled in the nineteenth century. She's worked in higher education and international marketing but, after spending too much time in airports and away from her family, traded the 9-5 to write contemporary romance to bring readers' hearts home. A small-town girl at heart, Jen likes ice cream, diners, vintage style and all things country. Her husband, Tech Guy, is her real-life romance hero, and her daughter, English Rose, teaches her to cherish the blessings in the everyday.
"Memories, regrets and second chances are front and center in
Gilroy's fantastic debut. The first book in the Firefly Lake series

feel to the story, and the co-stars are highly entertaining. The
homebody hero and world-traveling heroine must travel a long and
bumpy road to happiness."--RT Book Reviews on The
