Ashley moves to a new town to marry her fiancé. Instead, she buries him.
Ashley Johnson moves to northern Michigan to finally meet her fiancé face-to-face, but she arrives in time to go to his funeral. With no home back in Ohio, she decides to stay in what would have been their house, except his cousin Russ lives there too, and Russ has never heard of Ashley.
To complicate matters, her fiancé accidentally willed her the family farmhouse. Eager to please everyone and desperate to disappoint no one, she proposes a marriage of convenience that could solve her and Russ’s problems, if they can get past her aunt, his sisters, and an ex-girlfriend.
Were her plans a bust? Was she wrong?
Elementary school music teacher Callie Stevens thinks she’s finally figured out God’s plan for her life—she even made a list to keep her on track.
Moving in with her brother and reconnecting with her ex-boyfriend are at the top of the list. What’s not on the list is running into her childhood crush, Ryan. God wanted her to connect with Kyle, right?
Trying to figure out God’s plan is hard enough. But a dating-averse older brother, the young blonde who adores him, a pregnant best friend, and Callie’s continual mishaps make her wonder whether her best laid plans were truly God-inspired.
“Summer Plans and Other Disasters has lots of beautiful Northern Michigan settings, cautionary tales about what happens when you try to plan your life out to the smallest detail, the rescue of a damsel-in-distress, a swoon-worthy hero and subsequent kissing scene, and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. In short: it’s a book you shouldn’t miss!” 5-Stars
“I thoroughly enjoyed this fun read. Callie is such a great character. She’s one of those women who likes to have a plan, but when she visits her brother for the summer, her plans go awry! Mix together an old boyfriend and her brother’s best friend into the equation, and you have a crazy summer adventure. Beery’s secondary characters and Callie’s continual mishaps had me laughing out loud, while the romance was sigh-worthy. I loved it!” 5-Stars
