Left To Chance

Summary: From the author of The Good Neighbor and The Glass Wives comes an enchanting story of returning home and discovering what truly matters after loss.

No one knows why Teddi Lerner left her hometown, but everyone knows why she’s back.

Twelve-year-old Shayna— talented, persistent, and adorable—persuaded “Aunt Tee” to return to Chance, Ohio, to photograph her father’s wedding. Even though it’s been six years since Shay’s mother, Celia, died, Teddi can hardly bear the thought of her best friend’s husband marrying someone else. But Teddi’s bond with Shay is stronger than the hurt.

Teddi knows it’s time to face the consequences of her hasty retreat from family, friends, and, her old flame, but when she looks through her viewfinder, nothing in her small town looks the same. That’s when she truly sees the hurt she’s caused and—maybe—how to fix it.

After the man she once loved accuses Teddi of forgetting Celia, Teddi finally admits why she ran away, and the guilt she’s carried with her. As Teddi relinquishes the distance that kept her safe, she’ll discover surprising truths about the people she left behind, and herself. And she’ll finally see what she overlooked all along.

Literary Friday, ya’ll….

 

Hi ya’ll…. Today is Friday… At least I think it’s Friday- I’m in a state of near sleep deprivation as I have been on Sir Thomas stitch watch. For those of you that are following me on Instagram- you know that Sir Thomas has had to have stitches put in his arm (and then re-done because he pulled them out.) You will also have seen photographic evidence  (in his sweatshirt, big attitude shirt, Sir Thomas on penguin blanket) as to how adorable he is in his baby clothes (the cone of shame the vet sent home- WORTHLESS. The cat was out of it in less than 10 minutes.)

We go back on Tuesday to have stitches removed ( I SO hope they can remove them all!) and life will hopefully get back to normal-ish soon…. Continue reading

Seeds of Revenge

Summary: It’s the holiday season, and the mood in Winsome is anything but jolly…

Megan Sawyer is determined to farm year-round. She’s braving a December snowstorm after pitching her greenhouse greens to Philadelphia chefs when she sees a stranger stranded on the side of the road. It’s Merry Chance’s niece Becca, who’s headed to Winsome to sell her “love potions” at holiday events—or so she thinks.

Megan must follow the literary clues while sifting through the victim’s sordid past, but can she uncover the truth before someone else in Winsome is murdered? Continue reading
