John Baylor decides to wed quickly when he thinks he doesn’t have long to live. When he finds out his prospects aren’t as dire as he’d originally believed…everything changes, and he has to decide if he can make a go of a marriage that had been based more on the “in sickness” lines of their vows than the “in health” part.
Ava Fulton moved to Bethany Beach, Delaware to lick her wounds after a DC scandal sent her into hiding. There, she decides the best way out of her problems is to marry a millionaire, and she just so happens to remember one from high school, John Baylor, now a very successful man who’d shyly tried to court her as a teen. When she reconnects with him, though, she finds he faces grim health news and tries to be a good helpmate through his medical crises. Only after they marry does she realize she’d wed him planning to be a widow, not a wife. They struggle to make a go of their union and a new life in general, eventually heeding an inner call to something greater than either of them together.
About the Author:
Libby Malin is the author of contemporary, inspirational, and historical fiction. She writes under the names Libby Malin and Libby Sternberg. Her romantic comedy “Fire Me!” was bought by a major studio for film, and her retelling of the Jane Eyre story, “Sloane Hall,” was one of only 14 books featured on the Simon & Schuster “Off the Shelf” blog to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Bronte’s birth. Publishers Weekly has called “Fire Me!” “…an amusing tale of a woman who finds herself and love while trying to get fired… Readers…will enjoy Anne’s antics and daydream of making their own splendid exits from hellish jobs.” PW also called her first chick lit novel, “Loves Me, Loves Me Not,” a “whimsical look at the vagaries of dating…” while Booklist labeled it “charming…a clever debut.” Midwest Book Review called her book, “Fall from Grace,” about a philandering evangelical’s path to redemption, “a novel for our times.”
