Book Description:

When her father drags her to a new life in Wyoming, Aspen Brand doesn’t expect to fall for a cowboy named Kyle Thacker—but she does.  At seventeen, Aspen and Kyle share unexpected ground: guitar, running, physics.  And guilt.  Aspen blames herself for her mother’s car accident, while Kyle can’t find a way past his brother’s suicide.

On their first date they open up to each other, forging an unbreakable bond between them.  But Kyle has spent two years living with a vicious secret—one his ex-girlfriend will do anything to protect—and sharing his truth with Aspen makes her a target.  Now if Kyle is to be her love story, Aspen must first win the fight of her life.

From Chapter One

These boots are my favorite find, ever.  I left the leather scuffed and natural, beaten soft by some other girl’s adventures.  But I painted the heels and soles a silvery sage-brush green.  Freshen things in a way that makes them yours, Mom used to say.  And so I did.

To go with the boots I found a layered short skirt sewn from sheer lengths of muted, floral fabric.  The hem taps the back of my thighs as I walk, airy and comfortable.  My sweater is tight-fitting, a grayed-green cashmere.  It’s too warm for this weather, but I don’t care.  I love this sweater.  It came from an estate sale run by three chain-smoking grannies who clung to me like shadows, begging to buy my mother’s necklace.

Reaching up, I adjust the beaded strands.  Mom always wore this necklace.  Just four months ago she was wearing it, still.  It’s easy to picture her, standing in front of our big hallway mirror, fastening the looped clasp behind her neck.

It’s painful, too.

Mechelle Morrison loves language--she's always wished she could speak and write
them all.  She lives for chocolate, lazy summer days, spontaneously funny things . . . and family.  She's sort of scared of dogs.

When she's not reading or writing or wandering the world, she can be found in her backyard in Utah with her husband, their daughter and the bevy of quail that live behind their garage.

If she didn't write she'd make stop-motion animation shorts.  So she does that anyway.
