What Are Friends For? by Patricia McLinn Book Summary

❤ BEST FRIENDS, ONCE LOVERS...AND NOW?❤
Seasons in a Small Town – Spring
"Funny and heart-wrenching at the same time"

In small-town Drago, Illinois, Zeke came by his “the Geek” nickname honestly, more comfortable with algebra and algorithms than high school’s social hallways. Though that didn’t keep him from longing for the unattainable prom queen, Jennifer.
The one person who understood his out-of-the-box brain was Darcie, his best friend. For one night, Zeke and Darcie jolt from friends to lovers. Then he leaves town. Darcie knew her Zeke. He’d never look back, wouldn’t ever see her feelings for him.
Now, 17 years later, Zeke’s a self-made tech billionaire, Darcie’s a local cop, Jennifer’s divorced and Darcie’s best friend.
Their town is flagging, but Darcie has a plan. It starts with luring Zeke back to Drago for its annual Lilac Festival, then persuading him to boost the town’s economy. Even if that means matchmaking him with the beautiful Jennifer he’s always longed for. She’ll do it for him, for Jennifer, for Drago.
Zeke swore he’d never come back to where he was miserable, other than his connection with Darcie. But maybe being back won’t be so bad. Especially spending time with Jennifer … and Darcie.
Now why did he think of Darcie when things were going so well with Jennifer?
Darcie’s plan doesn’t get off to the best start when she puts Zeke in handcuffs, but they can get past that. For Drago’s sake, they have to.
Just like she’ll get past wondering what if…

What Are Friends For?, Book 1 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Seasons in a Small Town series, will captivate readers who love passionate contemporary romance with a spark of humor.

“You laugh, you angst, you maybe shed a couple tears or two … and at the end of it you move immediately onto the next book because - unlike teenage Zeke - you don't want to get away, all you want to do is go back.” – 5-star review

Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series
“The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart and I can only hope there is another installment with this small town as its setting.”
“Strong characters with enough faults to make them human and real” yet “The other characters in Drago all add to the story rather than taking attention from the main action.” 
“McLinn delivers a fun, engaging, and emotionally complicated romance.”
 “Poignant, heart warming”  . . .  “Funny and heart-wrenching at the same time” . . . “Passionate and sensual without being distasteful or vulgar.”

What Are Friends For? (Patricia McLinn) Book Reviews

Unusual characters and plotMotivation and underlying issues make for a good story. Fun introduction to two of the main characters. Flaws make characters really interesting.Score: 4/5

What are Friends ForFirst time reading this author. A clean book. A story about a small town and it’s inhabitants. The feature players were Zeke and Darcie, who grew up together. Darcie had a crush on him in high school even though he was a geek, he had a crush on the prettiest girl in school, Jennifer. But Zeke and Darcie are each other’s first sexual experience after graduation. Then he immediately leaves town and makes it big in the tech world. She stays and becomes a police officer. She and Jennifer cook up a plan to get him to come back with hopes of him reviving the dieing small town. I wish I could say the story kept me interested, but it didn’t. But once I start a book, I always try to finish. It was just an ok read for me..Score: 3/5
