The Heart oF Summers

When is it time to let go of your vision of perfect and just live?


Folk musician, Joe Summers gave his heart to a woman once. It didn’t go well.

 He thought she would be there forever. She felt his best friend was a better bet.

Not only did she destroy their marriage, she left him to raise their son.

Now his son has fallen in love with a beautiful, charming woman. Brody has decided Brynley Meeker should be his mom.

How does Joe explain to his son that merely choosing someone to love doesn’t mean they’ll stay in your life?

Can a child who doesn’t speak, teach the grown-ups in his life the true meaning of love?


If you love sweet romance with a hint of mystery, The Heart of Summers is for you.


This book is the thirteenth book in the Hidden Beauty Series. It is a complete novel and can be read as a standalone. However, reading earlier books in the series will help with context.

What Readers Say

“I laughed and cried right along with the characters. I was a first time Mary Crawford reader but this well not be my last.” Amanda on Heart Wish

“Can you give more than 5 stars!! Joy and Tiers has become one of my favorites. You will fall in love with Heather and Ty! This is a realistic couple who you will move you to the core as you follow their journey.” Michelle Storer on Joy and Tiers

“The characters were very relatable and very human in their responses to situations. This author is very good at bringing the reader into the story and identifying with her characters. Jade and Declan were both just normal people, with flaws, who were desperately seeking to find themselves.” Rea on Hearts of Jade

“I consider myself to be somewhat of a Scrivener expert, and have even created and sold comprehensive courses teaching people how to get the most from the software. Mary was actually one of the students on my courses, but wow! She was far surpassed me with her detailed knowledge of Scrivener’s awesome capabilities, and I cannot recommend this book enough! If you want to learn Scrivener from a fellow author who is using it every day, I can think of no better person than Mary to hold your hand and show you exactly how to get most from the software and make it powerfully go to work to improve and increase your writing and publishing productivity.”

David on An Everyday Guide to Scrivener 3 for Mac
