Sara's life was going along peacefully until she got the early morning phone call that changed everything. Now she finds herself heading back where she began, home. Not only does she have to deal with a difficult older sister and helping to keep the family's inn afloat, Sara has to work alongside her high school sweetheart who still looks as gorgeous as ever and her feelings that she saw all this coming. Her dreams and nightmares seem to come true right before her eyes. It has to all be a coincidence, doesn't it?
“He was with someone when I came home from college.”
“No, not really. He went out with her once. He wanted you to think he had someone since he told you he wouldn’t wait for you. He wanted you to be jealous. Guess it worked. He was crushed when you moved to Florida. He really thought you were going to stay, everyone did.”
“So did I. It just didn’t work out that way.” Reflectively she added, “It's funny how things turn out. When I was growing up, I didn’t think I’d ever leave this area. I never wanted to. Most kids I went to school with couldn’t wait to graduate so they could travel, but James and I just wanted to stay here.”
“I thought when I came back I would take my place here at the inn, but when I got here, I found out there really wasn’t a place here for me anymore.”
“You’re a Rhea, you always have a place here.”
Praise for the Book
"This book touched my heart in ways I could not begin to describe here without breaking down. There were times where I laughed out loud and other times where I had to wait to continue reading because my eyes were blurred with tears. I never expected the ending to be what it was, and wish it was not as it is now. I don't know what or if the author has plans to write a second book after this one but I would hope that she will. To end a book on such a heartfelt moment and not know what will come next ... I would encourage the author to continue this story. I would also recommend this short story to others." ~ Amazon Customer
"This was truly a delightful read. The ending caught me off guard and is a slight cliffhanger. I had to know if there was a sequel and when contacting the author was happy to know there are two more books coming!" ~ Janiera
"The characters and the plot pulled me in right away [...] I've read that this is book one in a series and I already can't wait to see what happens in book two." ~ 4theLoveofBooks
"This book captured my interest quite quickly and had me turning the pages. A gripping story and a great read!" ~ Sannel Larson
