All Rhodes Lead Here: A Novel (Paperback)
New York Times bestselling author and the Queen of Slow Burn Romance Mariana Zapata’s fan favorite All Rhodes Lead Here, a story about finding love when you least expect it—now with new exclusive content!
The people we lose take a part of us with them…but they leave a part of themselves with us too.
Aurora De La Torre, or Ora to her friends, knows moving back to Pagosa Springs, Colorado, a place that was once home and is now full of bittersweet memories of her late mother, isn’t going to be easy. Starting your whole life over probably isn’t supposed to be.
But after breaking up with her longtime, famous musician boyfriend, hiding out in a small town in the mountains might be the perfect remedy for a broken heart. And checking out her landlord who lives across the driveway just might cure it, too.
Only Tobias Rhodes didn’t rent out the apartment to her, rather it was his teenage son, Amos. Fiercely protective of his family and distrusting of strangers, gruff and grumpy Rhodes initially keeps little miss sunshine Ora at a distance. But over days and weeks, long hikes and fireside chats, Aurora breaks down his walls and soon an unbreakable friendship blossoms into a once-in-a-lifetime love.
Mariana Zapata lives in a small town in Colorado with her husband and two oversized children—her beloved Great Danes, Dorian and Kaiser. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, spending time outside, forcing kisses on her boys, or pretending to write.
"As welcoming as a hot bath with a few lavender scented candles thrown in for ambience. A wonderful slow-burn love story." — Oprah Daily
“The first Mariana Zapata book I read was The Wall of Winnipeg and Me, and it made me a Mariana Zapata stan for life. Everything Mariana writes is pure gold, and I credit her for my undying love of some of my favorite tropes: slow-burn, enemies to lovers, and grumpy/sunshine. I am in constant awe of her ability to create amazing characters and to make me love, hate, pine, laugh and cry with my whole heart...Mariana is an absolute rockstar and a true gift to romance readers everywhere!” — Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis and Love on the Brain
"When I need a guaranteed five-star, slow burn romance, I pick up Mariana Zapata every time." — #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Tessa Bailey
“An absolute binge—compelling, subtle, sweet and unforgettable—Zapata brings the heady, dizzy rush of the slow fall into love to the pages of The Wall of Winnipeg and Me. Winnipeg is so much more than a slow burn, a sports story, or a grumpy/sunshine delight—it’s all of those things rolled into an unputdownable feast of romance.” — Sierra Simone, USA Today bestselling author of Priest and Misadventures of a Curvy Girl
“This new edition of a previously self-published novel, which features Zapata’s trademark humor and slow-burn pacing is sure to be popular.” — Library Journal
“Zapata (Wait For It) lights a long fuse and lets it burn slowly in this tasty…small-town romance. There’s strong chemistry between Ora and Tobias, and they make a sweet family with Amos. Zapata should win some new fans with this.” — Publishers Weekly
