Holland's best friend, Andy, died six months ago, leaving her alone and friendless. Her father is bi-polar and takes six pills twice a day to keep it under control. Life is complicated and her dad is too needy for her to go out and have any fun.
One night her co-worker convinces her to go out to see this new musician, a guy in the Air Force who's amazing on the guitar.
He walked on the stage and sang a haunting song that touched her soul. From the way he held the guitar, to the way he flashed her a crooked smile, she knew she had to know him. Without warning, music will be the thing that ties their lives and their hearts together.
This story is about heartache and love. Holland finds her heart beating again in the arms of Tate. This book is a CLEAN New Adult - No Hard Core Cussing - No Sexual Scenes.
I live in New Bern, NC, but I'm from Oklahoma City. Some say I'm a coffee addict, with tons of creamer and sugar! I only like coffee that I make. When I'm writing, I'm a total night owl, going to bed about 5 am daily.
This scene is loosely based on watching my daughter with her newborn daughter and them loading the car as they left the hospital.
Killing Me Softly
A woman in a wheelchair is in the foyer with her new baby in her arms. A nurse is standing next to her with a cart full of flowers and balloons. I watch from the teak bench I decided to sit on, as the new father cradles his newborn in his arms. The nurse and him together were making sure everything was nice and tight to keep the baby secure. He takes the plants and fills up the front seat with them. As he takes his wife’s hand into his, they pass a look to one another. That look of love. They are most indubitably in love. My heart swells with compassion and hope as I watch them drive away.
