A family crisis brings her home. A gift of love brings them back together. Share in the moments that take them from friends to lovers. Beulah Isabelle Grayson and Jacob Martin meet in the seventh grade and experience life side-by-side from puberty to college. A broken heart and misunderstandings tear them apart, after their high school graduation, and Belle decides she never wants to see him again.  Ten years later, Jake is back in her life and saving the day. Belle knows she owes him the one thing she hasn’t been ready to give, a chance to explain. Clearing up the past finally gives them the opportunity to create the future they’ve both desired.

Gotta have it? It’s on Amazon!


“You got an answer for everything.”

“Just the kind of gal I am.”

“You’re racking up the reprimands. Don’t look shocked. I know more than I’ve said. For Sale signs in Mr. Mead’s yard. Dry ice in the faculty bathrooms. And, let’s not forget a school full of signs that said: Please Use Other Door.” She couldn’t stop laughing.

“Come on those were funny, and no one got hurt.”

“Lack of injury isn’t the point. We’re not in seventh grade anymore, Belle. You’ve got to stop.”

“Fine. I guess we’re back to telling my folks.”

“Nope. I’m going to try my folks’ method on you. Now, I haven’t needed it since about the eighth grade when I let Axe talk me into going down to the lake to smoke his brother’s cigarettes. But, I’m a quick study. You, princess, I’m thinking you’re going to be more of a repeat offender.”

As they pulled into his driveway, Belle only had one request.

“Just get me home in time for my soaps.”

“I’ll get you home in plenty of time, but I doubt you’ll want to sit for long.”
