Fun, quick read. Perfect for while you wait at soccer practice.
Shea Barker ran away on a greyhound ten years ago. Now a rising Nashville song-writer, determined to make it on her own, she’s set her eyes on everything but her past.
When her momma’s funeral forces her back to her hometown, she has no intention of staying longer than necessary. Until she meets Leo Marshall, the soft spoken journalist who sees her for who she wants to be, and suddenly a future she never expected opens up. Maybe her lyrics aren’t the only place where love is found.
Kristi was raised in central Florida on boiled peanuts and iced tea. She loves all things British, is often delinquent returning library books, and is addicted to hunting down the elusive bargain priced antiques.
In Reason to Stay, Shea's childhood left a deep scar due to her alcoholic father and hard life that made for her, her sister and mother. For her, healing is found through song writing.
Written words are a wonderful way to express a fear, happiness, or any gamut on the emotion wheel.
Reason to Stay (A Coming Home Short Story Book 3)
But daddy starts each day the same.
Always full of regret and shame.
He tries to cleanse himself with water
but the whisky’s call is always to blame. – “Whisky and Water”
