I was born and raised in New York City, one of the most exciting and exhausting places in the world. Work, Sleep, Repeat. My existence was a real-life Groundhog Day, and I needed it to stop. So, what did I do? After seeing the sweet little town of Washington, Georgia, on one of those home improvement TV shows, I packed my bags and headed south. When I got there, I realized I stuck out like a sore thumb. If it wasn’t for walking into Nooks with Books and seeing Percy Douglas, I would’ve turned around and gone back to Manhattan. But seeing how shy and awkward she was, I knew asking her out would be a tricky affair.
It’s sad but true. This small-town girl’s about to turn thirty, and she’s never been kissed. I’m in serious danger of becoming a spinster who lives with a houseful of cats. There wasn’t even a potential love interest in the wings until Duke Kennedy walked into the bookstore where I work. He’s everything I never allowed myself to imagine, all wrapped up in one swoony-worthy package. My problem? There’s no way this bashful, accident-prone girl could ever become the object of the hero’s affection. Why is real life always so complicated?
Writing romances started off as nothing more than a hobby. But then a publisher got a hold of my work and offered me a contract. I told them I’d sign on the condition of anonymity, and for some reason, they agreed. I thought it was a joke until I received an advance for a crazy amount of money. Now, my books are all over the bestseller lists, and my publisher is trying to renegotiate the identity clause. They want me to do a book tour to reveal my identity. I don’t understand why nobody is okay with a reclusive author anymore. If I agree to this, my life will never be the same. This plot twist may land me in some very sticky situations.
Fall in love with the charming town of Washington, Georgia, in this heartwarming romance that’ll have you rooting for Duke and Percy to find their coveted happily ever after.
