When Holly's boyfriend is offered the job of his dreams in Africa, Holly must choose between the love of her life and the small mountain town that soothes her soul.

Her fiancé, Dave, says whatever she wants works for him, but she can't get her mom and soon-to-be mother-in-law to so much as agree on a date. The worst part is that her dad passed away four years ago, and she's heartbroken he won't be walking her down the aisle. Holly begins to accept the wedding is doomed, but then an unexpected surprise reminds her why she's getting married in the first place. AN UNEXPECTED JOY (22 pages, 4900 words). Holly is struggling with some of life's greatest challenges, but hiking in Montana's rocky mountains gives her much needed peace she hopes to share with Dave. AN UNEXPECTED BABY (12 pages, 3200 words). Holly's already in over her head when she receives an unexpected surprise, which is beyond her wildest dreams. "An Unexpected Date is a wonderful and perfect release to a stressful or crazy day." - Cafè of Dreams Book Reviews "It's super short and super sweet. " - Getting Your Read On on An Unexpected Kiss "It's different from most romance series, it's certainly entertaining and it's a slice of life that most of us can relate to on some level with a memory or two of our own." - Romance is Ageless on An Unexpected Love
