For today's recommendation I'm going with Elizabeth Seckman's PAST DUE. Before I picked up this book, I had started three books, only to stop reading all of them a few chapters in. It was rather frusturating and I was beginning to think that perhaps the problem wasn't the books, it was me.
But then I picked up this book.
Now, I'm not usually a romance reader. Sure, I like romance in my books (who doesn't). But, I rarely read a book whose premise is based around romance. (I thought I would never write one either but then Cassie asked me to write a collab with her and out came a YA Contemp Romance. :))
PAST DUE was a fantastic book, and I'm not just saying that because Elizabeth is a fantastic lady. All of the characters were so well developed and every time I thought I knew how the book would end, something happened and I'd ask myself, "Where's she going with this now?" And the story would weave in such an emotional and perfect direction I'd think, "Of course! This is the way it had to be!" And then something would happen and I'd be back to wondering where the book was headed again.
So here's the premise for PAST DUE. Trust me, you'll love this one.
Jenna Austin is a young, widowed artist raising a teenage son on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. As the costs of living in paradise rise, she struggles to make ends meet. Life isn't easy, but she manages.
When her car breaks down, she trudges on. She assumes life can't get any more complicated than it is. But it can...
Chance brings her nose to well-formed chest with Tres Coulter, the handsome, affluent aid to Governor Hunt. Jenna and Tres share a history; they also share a love they thought long lost. Their lives are about to be altered forever as the deceptions of the past transform the very foundation of the present.
The price of happily ever after may be too steep to pay once the past comes due.
