About the Author
Elizabeth divides her time between her beach cottage and her scrupulously clean house in the hills of West Virginia. Ooops. That's fantasy Elizabeth. The real Elizabeth spends her days schlepping after her four boys (five if you count their father) and the assortment of pets they swore they'd take care of. She does live in West Virginia; the house is clean when the mother-in-law visits; and she does have serious dreams of living at the beach. Elizabeth is a Marshall University graduate with a degree in counseling. This has proven very beneficial when dealing with the make-believe friends she hangs out with all day (she calls this 'writing'). Follow her blog at: http://www.eseckman.blogspot.com

If you've ever thought you needed a man for happiness and financial stability, Jenna will prove otherwise. Jenna has achieved success in life by knowing that true happiness comes from first believing in yourself, and letting the rest fall into place.
The characters are very genuine, with real-life struggles and a history that can't be buried. I walked away feeling like I knew them personally and can't wait to see what happens in the next book.
I'm pleased to say I enjoyed this book as much as the other two. It's a somewhat classic story of star-crossed lovers, only it isn't so much a case of the stars getting in their way as it is their well-meaning family members, and their own self-doubts. In their defense, none of the family knew about the baby...
The father didn't even know. For fifteen years, this very-much-in-love couple are apart because of misunderstandings, assumptions, and the aforementioned well-meaning interference of their families.
Then they meet again. Unexpectedly. Then what...? More misunderstandings, assumptions, and near-tragedies before the truths come out, and the couple is given another chance to find their happily ever after. But is it too late for them?
You'll have to read it to find out. Me, I've already started reading book three. Now, if the author writes another book in this series, I'll be all caught up, and can proceed... and in the proper order. (What a concept!)
I found a new author to add to my FAVORITE AUTHOR list! Past Due was a well thought out and planned story. From the first paragraph the characters, especially Jenna, reach out their hands to the readers, pulling them into their world. I love books and characters that have been written in a realistic setting. Don't get me wrong I love my paranormal book and characters with supernatural abilites, but there is something refreshing about being able to relate to the characters that you hold in your hand. I was impressed by Elizabeth Seckman's writting, it was smooth and never failed to hold my attention.
Jenna is a widow and doing her best to raise her teenage son. As a single mother, she finds that providing for her child is a tough job that often leaves her sleep deprived. Money is tight and when her car breaks down she looks for ways to take care of this financial burden without asking her friends for handouts. While meeting with her next client, she finds herself working closely with an old friend...not just any friend, but the one person she never wanted to have to face again.
When Tres comes into town to take care of business he runs into the one woman that he thought he may never see agian, Jenna. Tres and Jenna once shared something wonderful, they had been in love, but lies and deception tore them apart and they have both lived with this heartache for far too long.
I highly recommend Past Due by Elizabeth Seckman, though I suggest keeping a box of tissues close by.
