The Reason is You
by Sharla Lovelace

In the small river town of Bethany, Dani Shane never fit in. Being different pushed her to the fringes of society, and even leaving town for two decades didn’t stop the talk. Now, with her sixteen year-old daughter Riley in tow, Dani is back in Bethany looking for a fresh start. Too bad her plans for staying under the radar are about to be thrown out the window.

Mischievous and sexy, Dani’s old friend Alex still has the power to rock her world, but there’s a big obstacle standing in their way—Alex has been dead for forty years. With a ghost popping up at inopportune moments and sparking conversations with her teenage daughter, Dani scrambles to find solid ground and get a grip—both on her sanity and her heart...

Sharla Lovelace's Bio

Sharla once hunted for crab in a Honduran jungle, and explored an unknown cave on her belly through a rabbit hole. Not in the same night.

Now, she lives in Southeast Texas with her family, an old lady dog, and 19 cockatiels. If you wonder how she writes with all that noise—the birds actually have their own house outside. THE REASON IS YOU is her debut novel, and she is hard at work on a second.

When she’s not writing or doing the family thing, she’s working full time or stalking her Twitter feed.

Other random facts:
- Once owned a bookstore
- Used to scuba dive
- Has a freakish fear of tall bridges

Sharla used to be cool and fearless when she was young. Now she can just say she hates bridges. And writes books. Yeah, that part’s pretty cool.
