Beyond Yesterday

by C. P. Avery

Book 1 in the High Desert Series

Wishing you joy and many blessings for the Holiday Season.

Nugget City, a small town in the high desert of Nevada, is heading for extinction, but the mayor is determined to keep the town from turning into one of the state’s 300 ghost towns.  To save it he brings back Jason Mann, who’d left under a cloud of suspicion.  Will Jason save it, or destroy it?

Allison Cates grew up feeling excluded from her family’s heritage.  Now that she has inherited everything, she’s come back to sell the properties, but she has to help save the town or she could lose everything.  Yet a long-held family secret puts her in danger.
Can she and Jason do enough to stave off disaster before it’s too late?  And will the trouble that caused Jason to leave years ago return with his arrival?

Find romance, suspense, and family drama in this new release by C. P. Avery, Beyond Yesterday.  An enjoyable family read for the holiday season.
