His paintings are embraced by thousands of faithful collectors and criticised by others for their idyllic scenes, which romanticise and illuminate a fantasy life on earth. From credit cards to entire Kinkade homes, his signature art has been championed by the silent majority of Americans. This volume commemorates his first museum show.

Now that the Cape Light election is over, Mayor Emily Warwick can finally focus on her burgeoning relationship with Sara-the daughter she gave up for adoption twenty years ago. Seeing her after all these years has stirred up some conflicting feelings for Emily. While she is grateful to have Sara back in her life, she can't help but regret their years apart.
