The last thing Erik Toleffson wanted was to become Chief of Police. He’s got enough trouble trying to rebuild his relationship with his three brothers. He’s not the bully they grew up with, but bad memories are tough to overcome.

Morgan Barrett is worn out. She never planned to run Cedar Creek Winery, but there’s no one else to shoulder the load with her father injured. All she needs is sleep. Just a five-minute nap in the booth at the Dew Drop Inn…if that guy across the bar would stop staring at her as if putting her head down on the table is a crime.

After Morgan yawns in Erik’s face, there’s nowhere to go but up. Until the shady mayor digs into Erik’s past and dredges up information that could drive a permanent wedge between him and his brothers—and sour any chance of a future with Morgan.

Erik Toleffson is sort of the odd man out of the four Toleffson brothers. Where Cal, Pete and Lars are affable and well-liked, Erik's a bit, well, scary. Growing up, he relentlessly bullied his brothers and got involved with the wrong sort of crowd. Though he's been through the Army and sobered up, ...more

Another great installment in the Konigsburg, Texas series, this time featuring the eldest and most troubled of the Toleffson brothers, Erik. I loved the way that Erik and Morgan's relationship was allowed to develop gradually. No big misunderstanding, just two adults, attracted to one another and ma ...more

~* 4.5 Stars *~
The eldest of the Toleffson brothers has long known he's the black sheep of his family. His three younger brothers are all good guys. Erik isn't. Cal, Lars, and Pete are happily married to equally good women. Erik isn't. The three also have successful careers they enjoy. Erik...well.. ...more

Wendy’s Review

Long Time Gone is a story that brings you into the life of a family that has good times and bad. Morgan came home not expecting to find love, but to help while her father recovers, and to prove to him that she could be an asset to the winery.

Erik comes to south Texas after his brothe ...more

By Calisto August 31, 2011

The Chief of Police job lands on Erik Toleffson's lap and he's not too sure if he wants it and the baggage it entails, especially since he is still trying to mend relationships with his younger brothers. Morgan is overworked and under-appreciated after she takes over running her father's winery whil ...more

3.5 stars. A nice end to the Toleffson brothers stories. Although it would have been nice to see a conversation between Eric & his brothers about their past, Bejamin managed to convey the goodwill, even if Eric didn't feel worthy of it.

I liked both characters a lot. It was clear that Eric would alw ...more

By Estara July 26, 2010

I really enjoyed this conclusion to the Toleffson family romances. It has less direct threats and even more lovely family & friends interaction. The only weak point was Erik (who is consistently taciturn - as he has been represented before) not truly convincing me of liking Morgan for more than the ...more

By Blackravens April 18, 2011

Meg Benjamin has finished this series in a way that makes it just right for all the Toleffson’s in this series. Erik is like a fallen angel and Meg Benjamin did a great job in showing us that every man deserves a second chance. To read the remainder of this review, please visit http://www.blackraven ...more

Fourth book; fourth brother. By now you know the townspeople well enough to know what mischief they can get up to (or down to - remember, I live here), and they do just that. These four books were all published within 18 months, so there's a consistency to even the most minor of characters. ...more

About the author

Meg Benjamin

Meg Benjamin spent twenty-plus years teaching writing and Web design in South Texas before pulling up roots and starting all over again on the Colorado Front Range. Her comic romances are set in the Texas Hill Country and the Colorado Rockies, which has given her the chance to sample some great wine and some wonderful food (research—it’s all research!). Her new Brewing Love series for Entangled has also given her the chance to get some experience with the wonders of Colorado beer (more research, honestly). Although she now lives in the foothills of the Rockies, Meg travels back to Texas regularly to visit her sons and her twin grandchildren. She and her hubs love to travel the back roads of the Rockies and you can find see pics of their adventures on Facebook and Twitter. For more information about Meg’s books, check out her website.
