One moment of weakness changed everything.

When a panic attack comes on and the only person she knows in town can’t help her, his roommate comes to her rescue. Will Kelly find her footing again in this new town? 

Matt Dixon has too much on his plate. He works as a financial analyst during the day while he goes to seminary at night.

Will he choose love for a woman over his dream? 


Book Excerpt 

Kelly’s stomach tightened as she pulled into the parking lot of her townhouse. Memories of her breakup with her fiancĂ© raced through her mind. Derek, the low-life, broke up with her over text message. He had been seeing someone else for months. How she ended up engaged to a cheating man, she did not know. At least she found it out before she married the jerk.

As Kelly opened the door to the townhouse—the one Kyle owned and graciously let her live in rent-free until she found a new job—she dropped her purse on the kitchen counter. She tidied up the kitchen from the hurried breakfast. The spoon clanked against the dirty cereal bowl as she loaded them into the dishwasher.

When she finished, she sat on one of the bar stools staring at the job website on her laptop. The quiet of the house failed to calm her nerves. She typed in a search for event coordinator positions and drummed her fingers on the cool granite, waiting for the results to load.

At twenty-nine, her life turned out far differently than she dreamed. Starting over on her own as a single mom in a strange new city wasn’t what she expected.
