WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE, SOMETIMES IT TAKES THE HEAD YEARS TO DISCOVER WHAT THE HEART HAS ALWAYS KNOWN
Forbes Branson was a young man ready for something new. A senior in high school, he was the golden boy. Heir to a fortune, he knew what his life was going to be. But he wanted adventure first. A year of freedom before college to do and go where he wanted. However, an unexpected betrayal would change everything.
Sophie Lipton was fifteen the first time she set foot on the Branson ranch. Dragged from one place to another, never having more than one pair of shoes or enough to eat, the moment she saw the wide open spaces, she felt she could breathe for the first time in her life. It was the home she always dreamed of. But her happiness came at a price.
To stay in her new home, Sophie had to keep somebody else’s lies. Lies that would eventually tear apart a family. And tear apart her friendship with Forbes.
Coming home is never easy—especially after twelve years. Forbes isn’t the same young man. He found his adventure—and more. Weary, he’s ready to settle into a slower, calmer life. Working on his family’s ranch and taking the job as Chief of Police sounds like a piece of cake after the things he had seen and done.
Sophie isn’t the quiet girl Forbes remembers. She’s grown into a strong, confident woman. A woman used to being in charge. The Branson ranch is her territory now. If Forbes thinks he’s going to waltz back in and take over, he’s going to find out fast that Sophie is no pushover.
Twelve years ago, they shared one goodbye kiss. More sweet than passionate. Now, as adults it’s a whole new game. The attraction between them is undeniable. Just as they begin to move forward, the past has other ideas.
Secrets rarely stay buried forever. Lies. Betrayal. Maybe even murder. Before Forbes and Sophie can think about the future, they will need to deal with the past. Together.
It Has Always Been My Dream To Write A Book
And I always knew it would be a romance novel. When I was a teenager I assumed my book would have a historical setting, those were the kinds of stories I liked best, I even grew my hair long so I could be like the heroines in my favorite stories. But now I see myself and my books in the present dealing with the joys and sorrows of our modern world. Harper Falls is a place my imagination dreamed up, but it is based in reality. I grew up in Washington State and went to school in a small town on the Columbia River. Harper Falls is that town but an idealized version. I hope you enjoy reading about the town and the characters.
And as much as I enjoyed telling their stories, these books are not the end of my dream but the beginning.
