When I began writing CAN’T STOP BELIEVING, I wanted to write a story about second chances. Like they always do, characters began to dance in my head, jumping up and down wanting to tell their stories. Some authors develop characters with long outlines and background studies. I pretty much just wait around for them to drop by, sit down and tell me their stories.
Cord McMillan did just that. He’d completely destroyed his life one night just before he turned eighteen. Seven years later no one in Harmony wanted to talk to him, much less be his friend. If he hadn’t inherited his parents little farm, he’d have had nothing and the farm was in so much trouble he had to work in town to keep from losing it.
Nevada Britain had rich land and money, but her reputation was worse than Cord’s. Neither trusted anyone but a need to survive brought them together and they formed a bond no one could break.
CAN’T STOP BELIEVING will warm your heart. The people of Harmony will stay with you long after you finish reading. Come along with me into a story that will make you laugh and cry and fall in love for the first time, for the last time, forever.
Enjoy the book,
In New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas’s small town of Harmony, Texas, “there’s always something brewing” (Fallen Angel Reviews). Now, a generations-old feud is about to come to a head—and the stakes couldn’t be higher with two hearts on the line…
Cord McDowell gave up his freedom at eighteen when he went to jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Now, ten years later, he’s about to give it up again for a piece of land. Nevada Britain, his neighbor, has just made him an offer he can’t refuse: If he’ll marry her, she’ll sign over a section of property that their families have been fighting over for a hundred years. Nevada refuses to explain why, but Cord knows the bargain is in his favor. He just has one condition—she has to sleep in his bed every night for as long as their doomed marriage lasts. Nevada only wants to maintain her family’s legacy—and redeem herself for a wrong she did Cord years ago. But as she spends more time with her husband of necessity, she discovers something unexpected—a love so deep it takes her breath away.
