about the book

After a year of grieving her divorce and living a life permanently stuck on pause, Laila Richardson is finally ready to have her own happy ending. Then a listing for a quaint cottage in another town answers her prayers for a fresh beginning—one that will bring her closer to her new boyfriend, Ben. Unfortunately, in her small town of Fairfield, Georgia, letting go of the past is virtually impossible. No one wants to see her move on, including the man who destroyed her heart to begin with.

Chad Richardson has spent years in misery but finally has his life on somewhat stable ground. When he learns his ex-wife is dating, he knows it’s time to go back and fight for the life he abandoned. Bolstered by his newfound sobriety, Chad has every intention of winning back the woman he loves, even if that means facing old demons that are waiting for him to fail.

Passions run deep as two souls searching for a second chance find the courage to let go of old patterns. Can they recognize that their dreams are still possible, even when forged from a broken past?

  6. Kay Garrett

    This is a new to me author but I love that she is a fellow military brat. 🙂 My Dad proudly served in the Army for 29 years and I enjoyed 14 of those as a military dependent. I can remember seeing movies for 15 cents and for another dime you had a coke and popcorn When Dad retired they were $1.75 at civilian movie theaters and it sure took some time to think any show was worth all that. 🙂

    • Tammy Gray

      I, too, miss the days of military movie theaters! I remember when we were in the Azores and I was in junior high I think. Rocky 4 came out and there was a line down the block to get into our one screen movie theater. I will never forget that moment, the energy that ran though that packed theater of service men and women. Tell your dad thank you for his service and your whole family’s as well.
