Playing by the Rules: A Novel by Elaine Meryl Brown

Playing by the rules isnt always easy-but in this quirky, self-cloistered community, Lemon Citys peculiarly delightful, eccentric residents do their best to follow the towns ten mandates-even with outsiders. Elaine Meryl Browns storytelling is new and fresh, yet warmly familiar. -Virginia DeBerry, co-author of Tryin to Sleep in the Bed You Made When theres a knock on the Dunlaps door in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner, Nana knows it cant be good. The last time an outsider managed to worm his way into Lemon City, mischief followed. But despite her doubts, she cant turn away the young man whos kidnapped his baby sister from an unfit foster mother. Before long, Jeremiah and Ruby Rose are practically part of the family. But thats not sitting well with everyone-especially Medford, the boyfriend of Nanas spunky granddaughter, Louise. It seems Louise has taken a shine to Jeremiah, and Medfords suddenly got some stiff competition. Of course hes too busy tracking down his birth mother-who left him on a doorstep when he was a baby-to be bothered with Louises flirtatious nature. As Medford moves closer to the truth about his mom, young Ruby Rose finds comfort in her newfound home, Louise wavers between love and lust, and Nana prepares to give her feisty old neighbor a run for her money at the annual fairs tomato contest. By summers end, a mystery will be solved as Lemon City secrets reveal themselves-and bring about more than a few changes of heart.
