Judy Christie’s Green series
The self-help books lied: Fresh starts aren’t nearly as glamorous as they appear. And love may not be easier the second time around.
Avery Broussard is all set to buy the fancy boutique she manages for her former
mother-in-law when things begin to fall apart.
Every deal in Samford, Louisiana, can change at the whim of a Broussard, and Avery’s in-laws want to win. At any cost.
Secrets are revealed; deals are cut; fortunes are changed.
So much for Avery’s new beginning!
But with the kindness of carpenter T.J. Aillet, himself no stranger to family conflict and Samford society, and the help of a rundown corner market, Avery finds that maybe, just maybe, life can turn out better than expected.
Camille Gardner, a talented oil-and-gas executive, agrees to take on one more job to pay back a family debt, convincing a group of rural Louisiana folk artists to give up their mineral rights and precious water.
Instead, she finds herself drawn to their art and attracted to Marsh Cameron, the attorney representing the landowners.
Camille must decide whether family obligation — and her own plans for the future — are more important than the lives and traditions of this small community.
Sixteen-year-old Wreath Willis’s mother has died, leaving her alone and determined to pursue the good life — while running from the horrid Big Fun.
To get started, Wreath makes one of her tried-and-true lists in her beloved notebook: “Find a place to live. Buy cheap food. Finish high school. Get a job. Go to college.”
Then she adds: “Avoid notice” — because Wreath is pretty sure most people won’t understand a teenager living alone. In a junkyard.
But it’s hard to go unnoticed when life puts people like the cute boy, Law, on her path. And then there’s Faye, her new boss who relies on Wreath’s creativity to turn a dying business around.
Maybe she’ll quit running and make Landry, Louisiana, her home.
Big Fun will never find her.
Available now on Amazon.com.
“Compelling gripping and relevant to what today’s teens are facing. Wreath grabbed hold of my heart and would not let go.”
