CHRISTINA LAUREN MEETS GILMORE GIRLS.
Reeds and Trumans are like gasoline and an open flame—best kept apart. Which is why Grace Reed ran from a relationship with Charlie Truman twelve years ago. That and she accidentally set his sister on fire. Now after another brush with the law, Grace is back on Truman turf and desperate to get her life on track. Even if it means teaming up with the enemy.
Charlie’s attempt to resurrect Serendipity’s defunct newspaper is going south. Fast. A fake engagement to his closeted best friend Betsy provides access to his inheritance, but it’s Grace who may be the key to the paper’s success. If he can convince her to give him a second chance.
When their feelings ignite, they’ll have to decide if following their hearts is worth risking their families’ wrath. Because small towns—and Trumans—don’t easily forgive and forget.
Speak the name of the devil and he shall appear. That’s what Nana always said. So, when an envelope with the name and return address of Cheri Truman-Young popped up in the stack of mail Grace Reed thumbed through, she handled it with the same care she’d have used with a venomous snake, or worse, a baby with a dirty diaper.
“Oh, hell no.” Grace chucked the letter into the trash, unopened. It wasn’t even fit for recycling. It should be buried in a landfill along with She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. Grace wasn’t plotting murder so much as planning the party she’d throw if the whole Truman clan, especially SWSNBN’s two-timing brother, Charlie, just happened to disappear off the face of the earth.
Grace shoved her thoughts and the rest of the mail aside and began preparations. There was too much at stake to let thoughts of Trumans ruin her carefully planned night.
