Titles By Miranda L. Pennock
Tommy Stratford is a family man. Loyal, determined, and a hopeless romantic, he took a leap of faith when he was told he was going to build a family of his own. Jumping into the unknown was nothing new for him. But everything changed when Tommy’s dream became more of a nightmare — one that connects him with Jacey in ways they didn’t realize.
Forging a friendship, Jacey and Tommy find they can be whole without the person they thought completed each of them. Friendships are tricky, though, and there are a lot of grey areas. Judgments get clouded when intimacy is added to the equation, and they find themselves asking, “Is friendship enough?”
My life was good.
But, like most things that are just “good,” it fell apart. I fell apart.
I had lived to work before, but when my husband left my job became my entire life.
Then I went for coffee and my life changed. Days before finalizing my divorce, my past sat down across from me and it was like life had been breathed back into me. It was only the beginning of a crazy, not at all planned out adventure with him ... much like our escapades when we were kids.
Twenty years ago my parents moved our family to Tennessee. My heart stayed behind in Western New York.
On a well-planned whim, my best friend and I packed up and headed north to begin realizing our dream of owning a business — a coffeehouse — in the small college town I spent my childhood exploring.
It took me years before I had the courage to go home, set up shop, and find her, though. I needed to be certain I could give her everything.
That day finally came.
When she walked in, she stole the air from my lungs.
This is our story.
Being charmed into a one-night stand with a flirty groomsman also wasn’t on her list of things to do. But the morning after the wedding, she finds herself hung over and wrapped up in Brian Stratford’s bedsheets.
Several weeks, a positive pregnancy test, and an ultrasound later, Emily finds herself on Brian’s doorstep questioning how her life ended up where it is.
As the new couple processes how to co-parent without loving one another, Emily’s fate takes a turn for the worst.
It isn’t until years later when Brian finds out what happened …
and that Emily left letters behind for the people she loves most.
Everyone has them. Some are little. Some are big. Some are harder to hide than others. Stephanie Barbieri had no problem keeping things hidden from the time she was a teenager. An emotionally abusive boyfriend. The popular girl who moonlighted as a bully. The whirlwind romance that landed her in the hospital.
For Stephanie, burying secrets was the only option until she was forced to face her fears.
And him. Eventually she had to face him. The hero. Her savior. The maximum dose of reality.
Max Wyatt has spent the better part of his time as the new cop in a new community keeping his own secrets. He shares very little information about his past, even with those closest to him, because the past taunts him, keeping him up at night until he works himself into an emotional frenzy. It’s filled with a darkness he’s been fighting for years.
It’s a past that simultaneously haunts and motivates him.
A past that convinces him it’s time to stop avoiding her. The girl he saved. The one who has the ability to help him put his ghosts to rest.
