Somewhere Along the Way: A Christian Romance

She is already busy juggling her life, but now she’s been roped into helping plan her high school reunion.

Emma Clarke breaks up the solitude of life on her small farm outside of New Hope Falls by helping out at the florist shop in town. Except now she’s on the reunion committee with people she’d never spent any time with in high school. Which would have been fine if it hadn’t been for him also being part of the reunion committee.

An injury has derailed his career and put his future health in jeopardy, so after ten years away, he’s come home to New Hope Falls.

Tanner MIkkelson never planned to return to the small town where he grew up. As star of the high school football team, he’d gone on to college fame which opened the door to a career as a professional quarterback. After several super successful years, his fame and fortune have grown enormously, but they are no protection against a hit that causes a serious concussion. With a history of concussions, he takes the advice of his doctors to retire from the sport.

As he contemplates his next move, Tanner finds himself fighting boredom in the small town he grew up in. When offered the chance to serve on the reunion committee, he jumps at it. While he’s not exactly wanting to reconnect with all his classmates, there is one person he’d like to see again.

Emma may have at one time considered Tanner a friend–and possibly wished for something more–but that is no longer the case. She’d honestly hoped to never see him again. Harsh words he’d spoken to her back in high school had fractured their friendship irreparably, as far as Emma is concerned.

With his injury forcing him to reevaluate many things in his life, Tanner has to acknowledge that he treated Emma and their friendship badly. Top of his list upon return to New Hope Falls is to apologize and try to make things right with Emma. Too bad she really doesn’t want to give him the time of day. He hopes that working on the reunion committee together will help, but she isn’t making it easy.

Giving up and walking away is always an option, but Tanner finds he doesn’t want to do that. Will Emma give him a chance for friendship–since that’s still all he can offer her–even though last time he’d broken her heart? Emma isn’t sure about opening the door for friendship because her feelings got involved the last time she did that. And falling in love with Tanner? Yeah, that’s the last thing she wants.
