However, during Manny’s schooling, the volcano near Celia’s village erupts, burying her home.
They lose contact with each other, and Celia comes to believe that Manny has fallen in love with someone else. When their lives intersect again, too much has changed for their plans to ever become a reality, yet the promises they made and the desires of their hearts persist, becoming unforgettable.

Her mother named her Hurricane, but she prefers Rosie, the name her grandparents gave her when she came to live with them on their ranch.
Now an adult, Rosie’s found the ordinary life she craves, teaching science at Lone Spur high school, rescuing animals on her grandfather’s ranch, and dating the safest guy in town. When millionaire-entrepreneur Destry Steadman moves next door with plans to build a resort, she takes it in stride. He may be handsome and athletic, but he can’t even ride a horse. How much harm can he do?
She soon finds, however, that Destry’s plans affect her more than she realized. In fact, they may threaten the safety of the whole community. What’s more, he has a knack for weaving himself into her life, and she enjoys his flirtatious banter much more than she wants to admit.
Now she has to decide whether her heart is with her steady boyfriend and her beloved ranch or with her swoon-worthy neighbor.
Chemistry Lessons brings to life two opposites—a crazy Western cat lady and an Eastern businessman—and tells the joy-filled story of what it means to be in love.
Latter-day Tales Series
The Latter-day Tales feature contemporary retellings of Jane Austen's classics. As the titles suggest, they are LDS fiction, and thus reflect the values of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. However, many people outside the church have enjoyed reading it.
Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale
The Deseret News wrote: “Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale is more than a regurgitation of Austen’s classic. It’s almost a supplement meant to enrich an already wholesome, moving story about the strength of sisterhood and family." Read the whole review here.
