OUT NOW! Vintage Woman by D.J. Fronimos and Elke Lakey
A childhood trauma instilled Cory Wolff with the compulsive need to be there for others. In addition to managing a hardware store, she helps out her widowed mother and younger sister, and maintains the family property. She also rescues the unwanted horse or two and the occasional human.
When Evelyn Brubaker stumbles into her truck’s path in downtown San Antonio, disoriented and bleeding, Cory — always a sucker for a damsel in distress — takes her in. Evelyn is young, sweet, and needy, and Cory falls for her hard.
So what if Evelyn originally thinks Cory is a guy? That Cory’s family believes she’s crazy? Evelyn’s the one. She’s got to be.
Except certain things don’t add up. Not only does Evelyn not remember her accident, she’s forgotten everything about her life, including how to use a cell phone. And there’s no record of her existence anywhere.
Evelyn doesn’t mind taking care of a home, even that of a stranger. Cory is kind to her and protects her from the outside world. Soon Evelyn relies on Cory for everything. But eventually bits of her memory resurface and things become so absurd they seem downright impossible.
Will uncovering the whole truth bring them together? Or does the real Evelyn have no place in Cory’s world?
