In this “astonishing and glorious” (USA Today) romance from the bestselling Sharla Lovelace, a woman returns to her Texas hometown and rediscovers the meaning of true love...
In the small town of Bethany, Texas, Dani 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 she’s back, trying to settle in with her daughter and have a normal life. But the men in her life might not make it that simple. First, there’s her old friend Alex. He’s mischievous, sexy, and still hot enough to melt her shoes. And he’s a ghost—a real one, who’s always been there for her when she most needed him. Of course, there are actual men in Bethany, too. Like Jason with his hard body. Dani seems to have a habit of running into him—literally. Now she must decide between a man who long ago touched her heart and a man she can actually touch...
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.
