Full Description

Alyssa has it all figured out. She has a job she loves working as Cinderella at her local theme park, a fantastic group of friends, and a boyfriend who will no longer be long distance since he's agreed to work as an EMT at the park with her for the summer. Everything is going to be perfect.

But as the summer progresses and Jake becomes more distant, Alyssa finds support and comfort in her friend Miller. Does being happy mean staying the course or will she rewrite her happily ever after?

Excerpt

I sleep with all my bedroom windows open as habit, so I’m roused from my sleep by the repetitive shrieking of a great blue heron that must be nesting near the manmade lake in the center of the apartment complex. Where are my soft spoken finches and friendly bluebirds? I wonder with a dreamy smile. Not in Tallahassee, apparently.

The heron is loud and insistent, refusing to be ignored. I need to get out of bed anyway—a long, busy day awaits. I picture Jake’s face—that bemused close-lipped smile, those gentle blue eyes—and memories of last summer flood my mind and my heart. I throw back my covers in a burst of anticipation. A long, busy, fabulous day awaits.
