Tabor Heights Omnibus #3
Three Tabor Heights Novels: Firesong, Behind the Scenes, The Mission
by Michelle L. Levigne
Dani has known all her life that God called her to ministry and music, even before her parents died during a short stint in missionary work. Her life revolves around her brother and the band they formed with their three cousins, Firesong. On the brink of breaking out in their career, Dani goes through several testing situations that confirm her in her path she has chosen, with no room for dating or marriage.
Kurt returns to Tabor to prepare for a crusade and reunite with old friends. He never expects Dani to capture his imagination, and then his heart. How can he convince the girl who once disdained him as an arrogant jerk to open her heart to him?
Conflict with their worldly manager forces Firesong to make some choices that could destroy everything they've worked for. Between the crusade, concerts, a new CD, and her brother marrying her best friend, Dani doesn’t have time for Kurt's nonsense … but sometimes he gives her those looks that make her doubt everything she knows and believes.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Tony and Max are best friends. Writing partners. People swear he doesn't know she's a girl and she doesn't know he's a boy. When Tony goes away for a few months as a teacher, he realizes that empty place inside is Max-shaped. His revelation isn't something he can tell her over the phone. Every idea to tell her how he feels sounds like the plot for a book they would never write.
Then Max's parents are nearly killed in an accident. Tony drops everything to come home and be there for her and her brothers. He'll just have to wait until things calms down before he confesses his love. The only problem is, between the accident and the usual chaos of running a community theater and the world suddenly "discovering" where Max's mother, actress Emily Keeler has been "hiding" for the last twenty-five years, things might never calm down.
All Tony can do is prove his love by being her rock, drop lots of hints, and look for the best opportunity to make his case. Before the new guy in the tech crew makes his move. He's certainly been paying a lot more attention to Max than Tony is comfortable with.
Max has tried for a long time now not to want more, and closer, than what she and Tony have. With all the chaos of holding together Homespun Theater, staging a new production, and dealing with the paparazzi invasion, she shouldn't have time for useless wishing and dreams that can only get her into trouble. And yet …
Claire came to Tabor five years ago to make a new start. Her life is wrapped up in the Mission, a former elementary school turned into an outreach center for Tabor Christian Church. They now have funds for renovations and expansion, thanks to teaming up with the Arc Foundation.
Paul comes to be the new head custodian, threatening her equilibrium. First, his daughter, Sammy, asks if Claire will be her new mommy, then Claire begins to fear Paul will take over, changing the vision and goals of the Mission.
Paul only wants a fresh start and a safe home for Sammy. The Mission’s vision has caught his imagination, and Claire has caught his heart. She stands by him when his dead wife's vicious relatives threaten to take custody of Sammy to control her inheritance. In turn, he is there for her when some nasty family problems threaten to follow her to Tabor.
Teamwork for the sake of the Mission promises to become so much more, if they only have the courage to take a chance
