Sneak Peek: HER ONLY WISH By Shelley Shepard Gray


HER ONLY WISH By Shelley Shepard Gray

Sheltered yet adventurous Betsy Detweiler is determined to leave Kentucky behind and head back down to Pinecraft, Florida—a town that holds special memories for her. In addition to reconnecting with her best friends, Betsy has created a “life list” and wants to be sure to complete each adventure with gusto.

Near the top of her list is learning how to play golf. When she enters the local golf course, Snow Bird golf manager August Troyer finds himself volunteering to provide golf lessons even though he has never taught anyone to play before. He is intrigued by this beautiful young lady who is a mass of contradictions. She is like no one he has ever met before.

As Betsy and August embark on a month of enjoying life to the fullest, they slowly begin to reveal more about themselves, but this also brings up more unanswered questions surrounding each of their lives. When both of them encounter obstacles, life suddenly becomes complicated. They must decide whether they will play it safe or move forward into unknown territory.

This tender romance reminds readers that life—and love—require a fair amount of risk.
