But when she meets army vet Lawson Easley during a pit stop on the road to a fresh start, she’s drawn in by the quirky town—and the handsome stranger she can’t resist. Lawson knows there’s no place better than Wishing Tree. Too bad the woman he's certain is “the one” is just passing through…unless he can convince her to give him and his hometown a chance at forever.

Best Man Next Door by Stefanie London
For Sage Nilsen, coming back to her small Massachusetts hometown for a family wedding feels like high school all over again. Except Jamie Hackett has gone from charming boy next door to handsome best man. And sparks are suddenly flying between the popular guy and the so-called outcast. As the wedding gets closer, Sage finds herself on the edge of something unexpected—a second chance in the town she left behind…with the guy she’s never forgotten.
Perfect summer read
I voluntarily received a free copy from Stefanie London and all opinions are my own.
I really enjoyed reading Stefanies short story about coming home and facing the demons and shame of being bullied and realizing that you are more than that. That you can find happiness by being strong and that you hold the power to make your life one that you love. that includes the hot sexy best man who has a few of his own demons but hurt you once before . It’s a beautiful short story that brings two emotionally damaged people together and in the end bring love and peace to each other.
I also read both the other short stories and equally enjoyed them …..all 3 authors stories hold a common them of either coming home or finding home.
2 authors also give you a sneak peak into their newest books . Susan’s short story is actually a prequel to her book series The Wishing tree.
This book is a great summer beach read….
