“I started this book thinking it would be a cute mending-broken-hearts love story. I was totally wrong! This book caught me off-guard and I loved it!!! The events played out like a movie in my head and I’d couldn’t put it down.”
“The book was very well written, I felt like I was actually there, and experiencing a few “heart stopping”, “heart pounding”, and “bawl your eyes out” moments made the book come alive for me.”
Author note: Way back when I was pregnant one hot summer, I was taking my usual short-cut behind some store to get to some other store only to find that the way blocked by a truck unloading. The driver was obviously tired of waving people away, as he was being ridiculously rude about it. I sat there a minute in my hot, pregnant state before turning around, grumbling all the way. I thought later that I should have gone and bought the man a Coke. I wondered if it would have made any difference to his day to have a waddling pregnant woman bring him a gift. Some years later, when I was going to try my hand at writing a novel, that little incident came back to me. For a romance, I had to have a reason for my heroine to be pregnant and a new man to witness this event. Maybe it would be a pivotal moment in their relationship. It just grew from there.
