Katy Regnery’s Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau
For as long as
Madeleine “Mad” Rousseau can remember, she’s been the “sweet” twin to her
sister Jax’s “sassy.” But after an especially painful break-up, Mad decides
she’s had enough of being sweet. Children’s librarian during the day, she
begins visiting Philly’s seedier nightspots on a quest for adventure and
experience. When Cortlandt “Cort” Ambler, the ex-boyfriend of Mad’s sister,
Jax, saves her from disaster on one such evening, an unlikely friendship is
born between the rebellious librarian and the moonlighting pianist…and two
broken hearts begin a journey toward being whole again.
He saw her before she saw him, and for a second, just a split second, the whole world paused as he waited for her to turn, to find him, to nail and level him with those bright-green eyes. When she did—even prepared as he was—his breath caught, his heart stuttered, his very soul swept unrestrained from his person, seeking only to be bound to hers.
And if there had been any ambiguity about his feelings, about the profundity of his regard for her, or his desperate longing for her steady and unending residence in his life, all doubts were assuaged in that single second that tethered them back together.
His feelings for her were forever.
He was done.
Finished with dating. Finished with looking at other women. Finished with a life that didn’t include Mad Rousseau. Like a snake that had been in the process of shedding its skin to make way for the new, Cort’s old life slipped from his being with a soft whoosh, and the only life left for him to live was one that he spent with Mad.
It wasn’t just that he was fiercely attracted to her or that he’d secretly loved her since childhood. It was that the universe felt wrong unless she was standing on this spinning planet beside him, within reach, her eyes seeking his, the fluttering heartbeat in her throat never more than a touch away.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut,
where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young
children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful
chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
