Item description for For Petes Sake (Piper Cove Chronicles V2) by Linda Windsor...
Overview In the second book in the Piper Cove Chronicles, can a hardened tomboy shed her rough exterior and discover God's path to true love?
Ellen isn't sure true love exists. That is until she landscapes the estate of the widower next door, Adrian Sinclair. Adrian has it all--at least on the surface. A successful businessman, he's engaged to a beautiful woman and he'll soon have a stepmom for his troubled son, Pete. Yet from the moment Ellen rescues a stranded Adrian on her Harley, his well-ordered world turns upside down. With his business under investigation for espionage and his son pushing for the tomboy next door as his new mom, Adrian's facade of happiness shatters.
As Ellen and Pete bond, she realizes that Adrian is about to marry the wrong woman. Despite her resolve to remain "neighbors only," Ellen is drawn to Adrian. But how can she be the one when he's engaged to a sophisticated beauty who is everything Ellen isn't?
As Ellen's three best friends step in to help her navigate this uncharted territory, Ellen must ask herself whether she's ready to risk the heart that she's always held close. Will Ellen trust that God brought this family into her life for a reason? Or will fear cause her to turn away from God's plan and her one true chance at love?

Reviews - What do customers think about For Petes Sake (Piper Cove Chronicles V2)?
Moral and interesting Jan 3, 2009
I like when a female character is strong, yet self effacing. For Pete's Sake has many strong female characters, and shows the difference between good and evil in two of them. Very well written, interesting plot line, and kept me up until 3am at the end of the book! I will be getting more Linda Windsor books.
Gotta love it! Jun 11, 2008
Linda Windsor is my hero. I don't know how she manages to put together a novel with all the emotions one can experience between the pages of a 295-page book. With wisdom and Linda's trademark humor. Linda deftly weaves in all the tension required between the hero and heroine, the 'other woman', an intriguing running sub-plot, the irresistible pull of a troubled boy--and a very wise dog.
Ellen's story in For Pete's Sake is #2 in the Piper Cove Chronicles. #1 was Alex's story, one of four long-standing friends from their high school days. I have a pretty good idea that the focus in book #3 will be Jan, the baker, who seems to be hooked up with the wrong man. Stay tuned for the next fun-filled tale from Piper Cove.
Romance and suspense. Can't beat it. May 29, 2008
Ellen Brittingham was riding her Harley home when the Corvette in front of her ran off the road and ploughed through a field of corn. Of course she stopped to help, and that's when she met Adrian MacAllister Sinclair, her new neighbor. Since his car wasn't drivable, she took him home and met his young son, Pete. She also met Selena, Adrain's beautiful fiance, who was, in Ellen's opinion, all wrong for him. Anyone could see that Adrian needed someone more like...well, more like Ellen. Book two in the Piper Cove series is a captivating story of love, suspense, and faith, with delightful characters who think they have their lives all mapped out until God gets involved.
A New Windsor Fan May 5, 2008
This book totally captured my attention and I did not put it down from beginning to the end. Linda Windsor is a talented author who literally makes the characters jump from the pages of the book. Ellen's personality makes you wish she was your best friend, she came to life as a person who lives their life to the fullest.In fact she makes you want to ride a Harley. I didnt read the first Piper Chronicles, but will be reading it soon, totally on the basis of this book. Pete and his life, living with Asperger's reaches out to you and helps you to understand the issue they deal with. This book is a must read!
An emotional journey that will have you laughing, hurting and loving along the way Apr 4, 2008
This book is the second in Linda Windsor's Piper Cove Chronicles. If I hadn't already been a devout Windsor fan, this story would have won me over by itself. With the skill of an expert, Linda brings the characters to life and leads the reader on an emotional journey that will have you laughing, hurting and loving along the way.
Ellen Brittingham is a motorcycle riding landscape artist with a love for God and a heart for children. She is a confident, no-frills tomboy who often attracts disaster. Although I have a black thumb and would dare only to ride behind a skilled driver, I found myself able to relate to Brit, as she is called by her friends. She is real. She is believable. She will walk off the pages and into your heart.
Adrian Sinclair is one of those guys you just want to take home. A business success and millionaire, Adrian comes across as a confident, high society man. Upon closer look, you realize there is a lost soul lurking behind the expensive suit and you can't help aching as you watch the struggling relationship between him and his son, Peter.
And Peter. I can't remember when a child has so captured my heart, with the exception of my own, of course. Pete is hurting while he struggles with the difficulties of his condition. There is a loving boy locked behind the anger and formality he displays and it was pure joy to watch him slowly come out of his shell.
Now, this review wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention the musketeers. This group of four women - Alex, Jan, Sue Ann and Ellen - shares a lifetime of friendship, support and ice cream. It is amazing to watch the dynamics of these women as they laugh together, support each other and speak the truth, even the hard truth, in love. It had me longing to be a part of their group, and thanking God for the special friendships in my own life.
This book is packed with chemistry, emotion, action, laughter, fun, faith and love. It is truly one of a kind. There was not a boring moment among the pages and I found myself completely enthralled and drawn into the lives of these characters and the town of Piper Cove. I would suggest, however, that you pick up the first book in this series Wedding Bell Blues, as you won't want to miss a moment with this unique group of women.
