I love holiday books like damn and whoa and fortunately, my un-indicted co-conspirator loves them too. Having worked in social services for so many years, this series, about five young women who grew up together in foster care is near and dear to my heart.
I’ve tinkered with this cover forever. And you know how when you struggle with something for a long time and somebody else comes along and makes one suggestion that is exactly right? Yeah, Whit did that to me. Being the brat that I am I wanted to ignore his suggestion, but it was so right I couldn’t but I still pouted at him, so there. Here’s the blurb and I’ll post the links as soon as it goes up. I hope you enjoy it as much as we’ve enjoyed writing it. And remember, sign up for my newsletter between now and release day to be entered in a drawing for a free copy!!!
Sometimes the best family is the one you make for yourself. The Meadowlark is one the finest restaurants in Atlanta and it’s owned by Geneva (Lady G) and Will (Uncle Popsicle) Whitfield. Over the decades the Whitfields have fostered countless children including Casey Brooks. Casey was the youngest of the kids she grew up with and always felt she had to prove herself, especially to Carter Reese, the rich boy next door.
Though nothing could be more clichéd, she’s had a crush on him almost from the moment she moved in with her foster family. For Carter, she was just his neighbor’s pain in the ass little sister and gaming buddy until the summer she turned sixteen. He realized his feelings for her right before he left for college and was compelled to let her know. Unfortunately, their love collapsed under the weight of anger, jealousy and bitter betrayal. Ten years later Carter has returned to town and is stunned to discover the truth about their break-up. The feelings are still there, and they might have a second chance but only if Casey is willing to believe in Carter, their love and most importantly, herself.
