She has nothing but time . . .
Twenty-four hours. That’s how long Andie Fremont has to say yes—or no. At forty-four with a daughter in college, she’s no young kitten with starry-eyed ideas of what love is. Still, when the man who is everything she should want pops the question with a ring he knows isn’t her style, during a party she didn’t want to have, Andie balks. Something tells her that it isn’t right.
Looking to clear her head, Andie hits the Texas highway in search of an answer. And when she stumbles upon an old roadside diner she decides waffles might be it, at least for now. What she didn’t expect to find was Jesse Montgomery. The man who stole her heart and broke it all in one day, two decades earlier.
As a Texas-size storm takes shape outside, the electricity between Andie and Jesse builds inside. Suddenly Andie is faced with more than just yes or no. As the storm clears there are two men who will want answers.
There is so much to this little novella. It's a little astounding because it really does only cover one day, but it's truly so much more.
Andie's been dating Brad for two years. She's 43, has a daughter in college, and a divorce under her belt. By all appearances she's pretty settled in life...until Brad pops the question and she panics. He's fine with that even though she threw up when he asked her in front of 60 of his closest friends...so he gives her 24 hours to think it over. She takes off driving and ends up at a roadside diner...where something magical happens.
This is my third Sharla Lovelace read and I absolutely am a HUGE fan. Romance is magical and she always adds that tiny, paranormal, magical touch to her books that I just love. This one is all about...FATE!
It's a great little novella. There's amazing action in it...did not see that coming. And a set of coincidences that leaves no doubt that fate is real. Andie and Jessie had a single 24 hours, 22 years ago. They have a second chance in this book and it's so good....so sweet....so romantic. I loved it! The little ties that bind them together all through the story....LOVED. It's a book about second chances and having things happen when they should. It was a great story and I loved every single moment of reading it.
