Scars & Souvenirs: Max's Journey

“I don’t even trust myself anymore. And I can’t keep doing this.”

Max Bauer hasn’t had a home in over two years. Every place has been a temporary refuge, and she’s tired. Tired of running, tired of looking over her shoulder, tired of the loneliness. She keeps herself locked away, won’t let anyone in, and falls asleep every night praying this isn’t a dream.

Clay Snyder hasn’t moved past the tragedy of unknown. Even after a decade, he is still searching for something he can use to atone for his mistakes. He goes to work, comes home, and falls asleep every night praying this is just a nightmare.

Then Max’s past barrels into her present, and she’s left with a decision to make: Keep running, or trust another person for the first time in years.What happens when these two broken people find each other? Can they each find what they’ve so long been searching for?
NOTE: This book contains sensitive material that may trigger some readers (DV, PTSD, mental health).

No one ever warned Clay one phone call could change his life again. Now he is left trying to juggle his relationship with the hardest choice he'll ever have to make.


Too Young

At seven, Fiona Walsh and her family left Ireland. She left behind her best friend. Thankfully—through planning and international flights—she and Sean Doyle still maintained their friendship. He spent summers in Boston, she spent Christmases in Ireland. It’s good enough for them until her family moves again.

But when Great-Uncle Finn dies, Fiona finds herself in Boston once more for the wake. With her fiance at her side, she knows she can make it through then leave the city behind. Boston is not home anymore.

She never imagined the Doyles would show up. She never thought she would see Sean’s face again.

Everything she’s thought about her life is turned upside down, and Fiona is left to make the most important decision she could ever make.
