But when she meets Max, a widowed high school football coach, she begins to question her decision to live out eternity alone.

But her immortality feels like a curse whenever she’s around Max, the first man to awaken her senses since the loss of her husband. How can she explain to him that while she looks thirty, she’s actually a hundred years older? Or that her grieving heart could not bear to fall in love with another mortal, only to watch him age and die? Yet something draws Kristina to Max over and over again, something that is starting to feel like fate . . . Tonight and Always is the richly detailed and emotionally satisfying closing chapter to #1 New York Times– and USA Today–bestselling author Linda Lael Miller’s Black Rose Chronicles quartet.

His wife, Stacey, the love of his life, walked out on Joe six years ago because of his unreasonable behaviour, always up in his little attic room, gazing out at the universe through his telescope and charting the stars, whilst getting totally drunk every night. So now all alone, he spends all his nights with just his stars and a bottle for company. That is, until Joe is visited by his old best pal from high school, Chad Dablusie, on the eve of his seventieth birthday and persuaded to try and get back with the love of his life, the one person he still loves and misses, his true love Stacey. A double murder provides the backdrop to this emotional roller coaster of a story, sprinkled with affection between two old buddies, sending out a profound message, the true bond of friendship never dies. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Kathy Lynn Harris' clever debut novel is a laugh-out-loud, yet poignant, story about good friends, bad choices, quirky families and new beginnings - a Texas version of Anna Maxted's Getting Over It with the wit and humor of a Melissa Banks story.Just what is a blue straggler? A blue straggler is a star that appears to be disconnected from those stars surrounding it in its globular cluster and has an anomalous blue color and high luminosity relative to those stars that surround it.But this is not a story about astronomy.Bailey Miller is "disconnected" from the cluster of her rural south Texas family. She has never quite fit in and now in her early 30s, she finds herself struggling with inner turmoil and a series of bad choices in her life.She blames many of her personal demons, and there are many, on a self-proclaimed condition called "RODA"- short for Recurring, Obstinate Dread and Anguish. She's drinking too much (even for a member of her family), has a penchant to eat spoonful after spoonful of Cool Whip, works in a job that bores her beyond description and can't keep a relationship longer than it takes for milk to expire in her fridge.Even with the help of her two outspoken friends, Idamarie - owner of a local cafe and fourth-generation Texas woman with the big hair to prove it - and her quirky college pal Rudy, she's having a hard time.As a series of sometimes humorous, often semi-tragic, events send her reeling, Bailey packs up her Honda and heads out of Texas, in search of herself and answers to secrets from her great-grandmother's past.Chock full of memorable characters, this novel takes readers on a journey from San Antonio to a small mountain town in Colorado and back, as Bailey uncovers not only the secrets of her great-grandmother's life, but also her own, and finding love along the way.In the end, you'll ask yourself, as Bailey does: Are bad choices passed down through generations like tarnished wedding silver, frayed quilts and not-so-tasteful costume jewelry? Can we really define family and home for ourselves, or does the past always determine who we are today?

Working from a cheap office behind the Dairy Queen on Highway 301, he makes a threadbare living as a process server and savors his clinical depression like a fine wine. Life's a sneaky mistress, though, and has a way of suckering you into caring. Lew's found that he's really good at helping people get out of bad situations. That he matters. And Lew's therapist, who alternately acts as his conscience and his sparring partner, tells him that unless he's willing to leave the planet, it's about time that he goes back to Chicago and closes the door to the past so that he can finally get on with the rest of his life. Lew hates to admit it, but he's beginning to see her point. So Lew returns to his home town, to friends and family...and to a grief that threatens to engulf him. He's resolved to dig until he finds out who killed his wife. In doing so, he'll uncover both sweet and painful memories of his past.
