Book Giveaway:

Meant to Be by Terri Osburn

Lifelong people-pleaser Beth Chandler will do anything to make a good impression on her future in-laws, including defy her fear of boats to make the ferry crossing required to meet them. Lucky for her, a lovable mutt and his tall, sexy, blue-eyed owner provide enough distraction to subdue her paralyzing panic attack. But Beth’s human tranquilizer turns out to be her future brother-in-law, Joe Dempsey, and their instant attraction is both unwelcome and undeniable.

Joe expects his brother’s fiancé to follow the materialistic, blonde-bimbo stereotype that is Lucas’ usual fare. Wild-haired, sweet-natured Beth doesn’t fit the part, but she does fit Joe and his island better than any woman he’s ever met. Though the men haven’t been close for years, Joe would never put the moves on his brother’s fiancé. That means Beth is off limits, no matter how much he wants her.

When a demanding case pulls Lucas back to the city, Beth realizes her fiancé is already married – to his work. Are solitary nights and mind-numbing dinner parties really what she wants? Torn between loyalty to Lucas and her growing feelings for Joe, Beth rethinks her choices and contemplates a future different from the one laid out before her.

Once upon a time my hubby and I almost decided to split up. Instead, we chose to work on our marriage, and now we have been happily married for many years.

Cheryl, what a wonderful outcome for you and your husband--continued blessings to both of you!

As for changes in plans? When I was a kid, I'd definitely contemplated a career in medicine (as much as a kid can ;)), but realized later that I couldn't stomach the sight of blood... many years later, I'm a freelance editor ;)

It's hard to compete when a man is married to his work but can be rewarding if you win.

I decided to travel more. However, after one trip I decided I'm much more content at home. I don't like the stress of not knowing where I'm going. I will continue to travel through books.
