I think I found the beginning of the slow slide in Springer's books.

In this one, Pastor Matt Wilde finds a ratty looking woman on the side of the road during his morning jog, and offers her money to help her out. Zoey realizes he thinks she's down on her luck (it's actually a costume, she's Ella Cinder in a dinner theatre in the Wisconsin Dells area), and while she's got some heavy baggage she's dealing with, she's not THAT bad off.

She's 'coming home' to take care of the grandmother she'd stayed
I really enjoyed this book. This is my second time reading it and I think I liked it even better this time around. Kathryn Springer is one of my favorite authors and her Mirror Lake series is excellent. Zoey and Matt have great chemistry and the storyline is sweet. I will definitely read again.
Hard to put down and exactly what you'd expect a "prodigal" story to be.

Zoey's and Matt's characters are exceptional, their romance is touching, and the supporting characters including the gossips are great. Hope there's another in the series soon.
Really enjoyed this book. Predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Kathryn Springer, winner of the 2007 Write Touch Reader’s Award (long contemporary), grew up in a small town in northern Wisconsin, where her parents published a weekly newspaper. As a child, she spent many hours sitting at her mother’s typewriter, plunking out stories, and credits her parents for instilling in her a love of books – which eventually turned into a desire to tell stories of her own. ...more
