About the book

One dream fails, a passion burnt out…

With no set plan and a desire to find a passion, Blaine Grant hightailed it out of Harmony’s Echo a year out of high school to find herself. Finding a passion didn’t come as easily to her as it did for others she knew. Now, Blaine has come home for good with mistakes she’d like to forget, but the past doesn’t want to forget her. Everyone thought she’d been selfish to not come back when she was needed the most, but Blaine never let anyone know the emotional hell she went through.

Another dream is just beginning to see the light…

Randy Hughes has always been the shy guy until he discovered his love of music. It wasn’t until joining the band that he grew out of his shyness. The oldest sibling and the only boy, he’s pressured by family expectations to set a good example. He’s the one who takes everyone in when they need it, and he’s the one whose own dreams are ignored. Now that big things are happening for the Baby Stetson band, Randy has to decide how to handle his family when his dreams are on the line…

A friendship is changing.

One spur of the moment, impulsive move leads Randy and Blaine into a dire situation that may bring them together, or pull them apart, just when he’s finally able to gather the courage to tell Blaine how he’s felt about her all these years…

Revisit the characters you’ve come to know in small town Harmony’s Echo, as more changes settle upon them.

“Night, buddy.” He closed the door quietly and went back to the living room with Blaine. He found her leaning back, her eyelids half closed. “You look like you’re about to fall asleep.”

With a startled gasp, Blaine opened her eyes. “I guess I was.” She grinned sheepishly.

“Why don’t you take my bed tonight? The couch isn’t going to be comfortable if you have back pain. I think Marsha might have a few of her clothes here from the last time she had a fight with her husband, so I can give those to you to sleep in.”

“Kay. Thanks,” Blaine mumbled.

He’d definitely made the right call to not let her drive anywhere. Forget the change of clothes. He’d just help her to bed and let her sleep it off. “Come on, you. Let’s get you comfortable.” Randy eased Blaine to her feet, holding on so that she didn’t fall.

“I could just stay there,” Blaine protested.

“Trust me, it’s not comfortable. You’ll thank me in the morning.” Randy wrapped his arm around her and led the way to his room.

“Is that what you say to all the pretty girls?” She giggled. Yeah, she was way out of it. He could tell by the tone in her voice. Blaine was loopy.

“There’s only one pretty girl I’d ever want to say it to in that way,” he shot back, knowing full well she wouldn’t remember this conversation in the morning.

“Oh yeah? Is she cuter than I am?” Another snort. Wow, muscle relaxers had one weird ass effect on her.

“Depends on the day,” Randy teased, finally making it to the room. “Nah. You’re always the prettiest.”

“That’s not what Frederic said.” Her tone sounded sad.

Randy froze. “Who’s that?”

“The asshole I worked with. The man who ruined my life and career.”


About the author
I’m an avid lover of books. I’ve been writing as far back as I can remember, completing my first “book” by fifth grade in one of those one subject spiral notebooks. I have a passion for music, photography, jewelry and all things creative. I live in Arizona with my husband and son, but dream of being somewhere much colder and stormier. For now, I’ll have to live that life through my characters and stick it out with the summer heat.
