She’s a librarian on vacation. He’s a reclusive author who’s scared to trust. Can their friendship survive her departure?

When Sarah Linden-Price arrives at a rental cabin in Maine, she has only one goal—to complete the promised photography project for her best friend and head back to Manhattan. Making friends isn’t part of the plan. But when a walk on the beach results in a mishap with a man and his dog, she’s surprised to discover they’re old acquaintances.

For Dean Jensen, the small town of St. Martin’s Cove is the perfect escape—and the perfect opportunity to keep his pen name a secret. He has no intention of moving back to New York City, and even less of falling in love. But then he reconnects with Sarah, and everything starts to change.

As Dean helps Sarah with her photography project, his feelings deepen beyond the youthful crush from their college days. But as her time in Maine winds down, they’re both left wondering what sacrifices their blossoming relationship is worth.

Between Now and Forever is a clean & wholesome standalone romance novella.

My Review: 5 Stars
Maine is a mystical and intriguing place to me and one I need to visit. Every time I read a book set there, I have feelings of warmth and coziness, even in the midst of the cool and chill. Sarah and Dean and their perfect vacation reconnection oozed comfort and swoon, and this was the perfect book to settle in with for the day.

I loved these characters and this setting. The small town autumn mists and rains were the perfect backdrop for a delightful and charming second-chance-to-rekindle-a-crush-romance that made my heart flutter. Although this story is short and sweet, it felt well-rounded and complete. I really need to visit Maine...

Content: mild romance (kissing, swoon)
