The One You're With

The One You're With

Author: Lauren K. Denton Narrator: Caroline Hewitt Release Date: 01/07/2021

Written in Lauren K. Denton's signature Southern style, The One You're With tells the story of a seemingly perfect marriage rocked by secrets from the past. High-school sweethearts Mac and Edie Swan lead a seemingly picture-perfect life in the sleepy-sweet community of Oak Hill, near Mobile, Alabama. Edie is a respected interior designer, Mac is a beloved pediatrician, and they have two great kids and a historic home on tree-lined Linden Avenue. From the outside, the Swan family is the definition of "the good life." And life is good-mostly. Until a young woman walks into Mac's office one day. A young woman whose very existence threatens all Mac and Edie have built and all they think they know about each other. Nineteen years after a summer apart, with a family and established lives and careers, the past that Mac and Edie thought they left behind has come back to greet them. For the first time, constants in their lives are called into question: their roles as parents, their reputation as upstanding members of the community, and the very foundations of their marriage. As they wade through the upheaval in both their family and professional lives, they must each examine choices they made long ago and chart a new course for their future. Praise for The One You're With: "Lauren Denton is a master not only of Southern fiction, but at capturing the nuance of complicated, messy relationships. This is one of those rare books that I devoured in less than 24 hours, yet didn't want to end."-Colleen Oakley, USA TODAY bestselling author of You Were There Too "Reading a Lauren K. Denton book is like spending time with treasured friends. With her warmhearted Southern voice, she expertly guides readers along the achingly emotional path of a marriage in trouble in The One You're With."-Heather Webber, USA TODAY bestselling author of Midnight at the Blackbird Café - Full-length Southern women's fiction - Stand-alone novel - Book length: 116,000 words

The Summer House

The Summer House

Author: Lauren K. Denton Narrator: Devon O'day, Devon ODay Release Date: 01/06/2020

Sometimes it takes losing everything to find yourself again. Lily Bishop wakes up one morning to find a good-bye note and divorce papers from her husband on the kitchen counter. Having moved to Alabama for his job only weeks before, Lily is devastated, but a flyer at the grocery store for a hair stylist position in a local retirement community provides a refuge while she contemplates her next steps. Rose Carrigan built the small retirement village of Safe Harbor years ago-just before her husband ran off with his assistant. Now she runs a tight ship, making sure the residents follow her strict rules. Rose keeps everyone at arm's length, including her own family. But when Lily shows up asking for a job and a place to live, Rose's cold exterior begins to thaw. Lily and Rose form an unlikely friendship, and Lily's salon soon becomes the place where residents share town gossip, as well as a few secrets. Lily soon finds herself drawn to Rose's nephew, Rawlins-a single dad and shrimper who's had some practice at starting over-and one of the residents may be carrying a torch for Rose as well. Neither Lily nor Rose is where she expected to be, but the summer makes them both wonder if there's more to life and love than what they've experienced so far. The Summer House weaves Lauren K. Denton's inviting Southern charm around a woman's journey to find herself.

Glory Road

Glory Road

Author: Lauren K. Denton Narrator: Devon O'day, Devon Oday Release Date: 01/03/2019

Written in Lauren Denton's signature Southern style, Glory Road tells the story of three generations of women navigating the uncertain pathways of their hearts during a summer that promises to bring change-whether they're ready for it or not. "Glory Road brims with faith and family, second chances, and new horizons." -LISA WINGATE, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours The only thing certain is change-even in a place as steady as Perry, Alabama, on a street as old as Glory Road. Nearly a decade after her husband's affair drove her back home to South Alabama, Jessie McBride has the stable life she wants-operating her garden shop, Twig, next door to her house on Glory Road, and keeping up with her teenage daughter and spunky mother. But the unexpected arrival of two men makes Jessie question whether she's really happy with the status quo. When handsome, wealthy businessman Sumner Tate asks her to arrange flowers for his daughter's lavish wedding, Jessie finds herself drawn to his continued attention. Then Ben Bradley, her lingering what-could-have-been from high school, moves back to the red dirt road, and she feels her heart pulled in directions she never expected. Meanwhile, Jessie's fourteen-year-old daughter, Evan, is approaching the start of high school and navigating a new world of emotions-particularly as they relate to the cute new guy who's moved in just down the road. At the same time, Jessie's mother, Gus, is suffering increasingly frequent memory lapses and faces a frightening, uncertain future. In one summer, everything will change. But for these three strong Southern women, the roots they've planted on Glory Road will give life to the adventures waiting just around the curve. "Rich colorful characters capturing my heart, combined with a story that kept me up till the wee hours, Glory Road is a perfect read. Lauren Denton has done it again!" -Lisa Patton, bestselling author of Rush and Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter "Once again Lauren Denton brings her lyrical writing and compelling characters to a story that will enthrall readers from page one." -Marybeth Mayhew Whalen, author of Only Ever Her and co-founder of She Reads, for Glory Road "From the opening of The Hideaway, the reader is captured by the voice of a woman who has for too long kept a story that must be told, one the reader wants to hear. Denton has crafted a story both powerful and enchanting: a don't-miss novel in the greatest southern traditions of storytelling." -Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author "A poignant and heartfelt tale of sisterhood, motherhood, and marriage, Hurricane Season deftly examines the role that coming to terms with the past plays in creating a hopeful future. Readers will devour this story of the hurricanes-both literal and figurative-that shape our lives." -Kristy Woodson Harvey, national bestselling author of Slightly South of Simple

The Hideaway

Author: Devon Oday, Lauren K. Denton Narrator: Devon O'day, Devon ODay, Devon Oday Release Date: 01/02/2018

When her grandmother's will wrenches Sara back home from New Orleans, she learns more about Margaret Van Buren in the wake of her death than she ever did in life. After her last remaining family member dies, Sara Jenkins goes home to The Hideaway, her grandmother Mags' ramshackle B&B in Sweet Bay, Alabama. She intends to quickly tie up loose ends then return to her busy life and thriving antique shop in New Orleans. Instead she learns Mags has willed her The Hideaway and charged her with renovating it - no small task considering Mags' best friends, a motley crew of senior citizens, still live there. Rather than hurrying back to New Orleans, Sara stays in Sweet Bay and begins the biggest house-rehabbing project of her career. Amid Sheetrock dust, old memories, and a charming contractor, she discovers that slipping back into life at The Hideaway is easier than she expected. Then she discovers a box Mags left in the attic, with clues to a life Sara never imagined for her grandmother. With help from Mags' friends, Sara begins to piece together the mysterious life of bravery, passion, and choices that changed Mags' destiny in both marvelous and devastating ways. When an opportunistic land developer threatens to seize The Hideaway, Sara is forced to make a choice - stay in Sweet Bay and fight for the house and the people she's grown to love or leave again and return to her successful but solitary life in New Orleans.
