Publisher Description

When Callie Casewell tells her husband Nick Muscato she’s pregnant with another man’s child, and hours later, he’s accused of sexual misconduct with a student, they’re shocked by what is sure to destroy their marriage. After all, she’d followed him to Vassar so he could pursue his dream of being a major league baseball player and spent years in limbo about her own career. But even then, they dealt with an injury that caused Nick to lose his dreams, his inability to have children and Callie’s yearning to return to their Alma Mater and teach. Though this stress might split up a lesser couple, In A PRICE WORTH PAYING, Book 5, Nick and Callie fight the accusation and try to keep their marriage together.

Don’t miss all five books in the Lean On Me Series, heart-wrenching stories of teens in jeopardy and the adults who’ve dedicated their lives to helping them. PROMISES TO KEEP, MICHAEL’S FAMILY, TRUST IN ME, WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN and A PRICE WORTH PAYING.  


“I started the book well after midnight...almost didn't sleep... and woke only to continue reading and finished it out in one fell swoop.”

“It was so refreshing to read a book about an imperfect couple who have been married a long time with big problems in their relationship but a determination to save the marriage.”

“Overall a good read. Subject matter was very serious, but done very well. It also had enough of a mystery going on that it keeps the reader engaged.”

“This has been by far one of the best books I have read in a while!”

“This is pure drama with a very good dose of angst thrown in. I wondered how these two could ever come back together again since what has torn them apart has become a runaway train. They both have to admit what their part is in what has happened to their love. Again......I love the teenagers in this book and Kathryn Shay knows how to write her kids (and adults).”

“Kathryn Shay is best at creating edgy plot lines from hot button issues, and creating a world where Romance characters heroically meet tough challenges. She is able to take the best from the Romance genre and complicate the lives of realistic and exceptional characters to create satisfying stories that don't shy away from the complexities of life - a must read!!!”

A Price worth Paying

Loved this story! Lots of ups and downs, major intrigue and physical danger (even though I kept telling who the culprit was!). Through it all the love of Nick and Callie was worth it all and brought them through.

Powerful story

This book was so much more that I had expected reading the excerpt. It was a difficult topic the sadly we see in the headlines. The support of Nick and Callie for each other was incredible. I truly could not put this book down. A 5star read from Kathryn Shay.

A Price Worth Paying

Because these scenarios do in fact occur, it was a well written book and I enjoyed reading the whole story from beginning to end.

I have worked in mental health & police departments so I can comprehend a lot.

Thank you for writing this. I only hope more people will read it.
