Product description

Product Description

When Amber signed her sister’s name on a pen pal letter to a Marine, it was only meant to be a little white lie. As usual, Jory Walker, stepped in to right her sister’s mistake.
When faced with four letters from SSGT Trent Stevens in Afghanistan, Jory had no choice but to correspond. Sure he’d be drooling over Amber’s photo in a bikini, thinking it was Jory. But she’d never meet him, so what harm could it do if she sent him a few letters?
She was in no danger of falling for him, because, they had nothing in common. Or did they? Jory kept up the masquerade, writing to him regularly and eagerly awaiting his replies. As they grew closer, the lie grew bigger.
Would her charade boomerang replacing happiness with pain? What started off as an innocent ruse, morphed into a monstrous web of deceit. Maybe unpredictable love was destined to break her heart.

Here's a taste:
Jory Walker plucked three letters from the mailbox in front of the house. Two bills and one envelope addressed to her that looked like it had been through a war. It had, according to what was scratched in the upper corner.

SSGT. T. Stevens

Anger bubbled up inside her. She made a beeline for the house, only to collide with her sister.
“Amber! What the hell?” She waved the envelope in the young woman’s face.
“I just sent him one letter.”
“This is the fourth you’ve gotten from him. When are you going to write back?”
“It was a mistake…”
“You can say that again. Especially the part where you signed my name!”
“Laura was so convincing. I thought she meant one time. Only one letter.”
“She asked people to sign up to write to guys in the military. Not to write only one letter and include a lewd photo.”
“It wasn’t lewd, whatever that means. Just me in a bikini. I’m not good at writing. Much better at pictures.” Her beautiful, blonde sister, with a Miss America figure, grinned.
“And the reason you signed my name?”
“I always liked yours better. Besides, if he wanted another letter, I knew you’d write it for me. So, it might as well have your name on it.”
“Don’t give me that bullshit smile. I’m on to you. And the answer is ‘no.’” Jory shoved the envelope from T. Stevens into Amber’s hand.
“Please? Pleeeaassseee, Jory. You’re the writer. Not me.”
“That’s right. You’re the pretty sister, and I’m the smart one.”
Amber nodded. “I don’t mean it like that. You’re so much better than me.”
“Than I.”
Amber’s jaw jutted out. “Okay. Disappoint some poor guy out there fighting a war. Look at his picture. He’s hot, even with a buzz cut. Besides, he might die. Your words could be the last ones he ever sees!”
“He’s expecting you, not me.”

What a touching story! Jory's sister puts her own photo in a letter to a Marine, but signs it Jory. Trent and Jory correspond and fall in love, but will the lie started by the photo damage their future? I recommend this book. Sweet, touching and very well written.

5.0 out of 5 stars A love story that had my heart dreaming 21 April 2016
By Jara Beaubien - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My first time reading Jean Joachim's book. I found it delightfully light, surprisingly dealing with some issues that surround us today. That Jory got into a mess to help her sister, but no matter how she tried to get out if the further she fell for Trent. I laughed and smiled and even shed a tear over Trent's and Jory story. Am glad that despite the lies she and Trent managed to finally find what they both were seeking and needing. Thanks Jean for a fantastic journey to Pine Grove and 2 hearts that found each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Start To A New Series! 1 May 2016
By Vicki Locey - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ms. Joachim once again brings us a book filled with drama, romance, and a lesson learned. I loved the leading man in this one. A Marine who sketches birds?! Yes, please! The story line was tight and kept me involved as I waited for the inevitable explosion to happen between our couple. When it did it was well-written and powerful and I was rooting for them to work it out. This new set of tales by Ms. Joachim has a lovely small town feel and the supporting characters are warm and friendly, just as you'd expect in a quaint little hamlet. The sex scenes were smoky hot and the dialog crackling. All in all a marvelous start for a new series!
