It's Jess's wedding anniversary and she's mourning her deceased husband, Charlie, when she finds out that the formal hearing for the suit that his grown children filed months ago is coming up. She's talking with her financial planner, Preston Michaels, on the phone and wondering why talking with him always makes her so flustered, especially on this sad day. Jess has avoided every one of the hearings for the suit that Charlie's children filed, so she surprises herself when she decides to go. She tells herself, that maybe his children will back off when they see her, but knows that the real reason that she wants to go is to meet Preston. Preston in real life does live up to the voice that she's grown to love over the phone, but is Jess ready to give up her memories of Charlie and move on with her life?
This was a really cute story. I like these novellas because they are short and easy to read, fun and filled with romance. This one was especially cute. I like the characters in these novellas, it seems as though they are someone you know and like, which is pretty amazing considering they are so short. This one left me wishing to know what happened next, I really hope that Heather Moore is planning to write more about these characters sometime!
I bought this book from amazon.com for $1.99, but I just happened to look and it's free today! Check it out!
