JENNIFER DAWSON grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from DePaul University with a degree in psychology. She met her husband at the public library while they were studying. To this day she still maintains she was NOT checking him out. Now, over twenty years later, they’re married and living in a suburb right outside of Chicago with two awesome kids and a crazy dog.
Despite going through a light FM, poem writing phase in high school, Jennifer never grew up wanting to be a writer (she had more practical aspirations of being an international super spy). Then one day, suffering from boredom and disgruntled with a book she’d been reading, she decided to put pen to paper. The rest, as they say, is history. 
These days Jennifer can be found sitting behind her computer, writing her next novel, chasing after her kids, keeping an ever watchful eye on her ever growing to-do list, and NOT checking out her husband.

“A hauntingly beautiful story from a writer with a fresh new voice.” —New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas

In the small Texas town where she grew up, Dani Shane learned early on that being different was all it took to raise eyebrows and stir up gossip, and even leaving town for two decades didn’t stop the talk. Now, Dani’s been forced to move back, and all she wants is to settle in quietly and put the past behind her. But the men in her life won’t make that easy.

First, there’s her old friend Alex, who’s mischievous, sexy, still hot enough to melt her shoes—and a ghost. He’s always been there for her, but also has a habit of popping up at the most inopportune times. And then there’s Jason, a flesh-and-blood man whose quiet strength and powerful body set Dani on fire.

As she struggles to build a new life in a town that won’t let her forget her old one, Dani’s determined to make sense of her love life, but first she’ll have to choose between a man who long ago touched her heart and a man she can actually touch . . .

Fans of Jodi Thomas and Lori Wilde will love this sparkling romance from Sharla Lovelace, the bestselling author of Just One Day and The Reason Is You.


Emily Lockwood has her hands full with a stubbornly independent daughter, an ex-husband who sometimes tests her patience, and a mother who often does. But Emily also has a devastating secret, one she thought she’d buried long ago—along with her feelings for Ben Landry.


From childhood friends to young lovers, Ben and Emily shared an unbreakable bond and were as close as two people could get. Or so she’d thought, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now, twenty years later, Ben is back, and seeing him does more than trigger memories and tug at her heart.


As Emily works to keep her secret safe and her heart safer, visions of her past begin playing out before her eyes, making her see herself, Ben, and every choice she’s ever made in a revealing new light. And for Emily, seeing her life in rewind makes her realize she has some hard choices to make—choices that could forever change her life and the lives of everyone she loves . . .
