Hellooooooo to one and all! This will be my last post of the year, but I’ll be back with more snippets from Learning to Love in 2020 to prepare for its release in the spring! Enjoy! 🙂
Continuing from where we left off…
“Got it, thanks.” Moments later, he entered the office and made his way to the stash of snacks and juice boxes they kept on hand for students. Pete hadn’t glossed over the fact that some students missed breakfast, and some didn’t have anyone ensuring they came to school with a lunch, either. He freed two juice boxes and a packet of cookies from the mish-mash, then marched straight out again.
He was pleased to see she hadn’t moved from her spot on the floor, and he eagerly joined her again, this time sitting next to her with his back against the lockers. Passing her a juice box, he opened the packet of cookies, offering her one. He took the remaining cookie and held it up for a toast. She obliged, knocking hers against his, sprinkling crumbs over his pantleg. “Here’s to eating cookies in empty school hallways.”
“Empty except for us, you mean.”
Here’s the blurb:
Rebecca Ledgerwood is a physical education teacher who’s ready to invest some sweat equity into a lasting romance. On a whim, she has her palm read before summer vacation ends, and she’s told she’s an old soul who’ll find happiness with a younger man.
William Whitney leaves an unfulfilling career to pursue teaching and gets placed at Rebecca’s school for his physical education practicum. He’s desperate to make a difference, convinced that the choices he made in the past contributed to his younger sister’s death. Kendal High School is nothing like the prep school he attended as a teenager, but he’s determined to make the most of his time there, especially if it makes Rebecca notice him.
Though they come from vastly different backgrounds, there’s an undeniable chemistry that sparks between the two. They resist, as they must, until his practicum ends, but when he’s offered a teaching position at his former prep school, will he take the easy way out, or fight for what’s right in front of him?

I’ve got one more week of school, and then I’m heading home for the holidays where I plan on gobbling up all kinds of sweet treats (mainly my niece and nephew) and spending loads of time with my loved ones. Thanks to all of you for the support you provide throughout the year. I don’t know what I’d do without this group and my kind readers who stop by. I appreciate you so much. See you again in 2020! Merry Christmas and happy New Year!!! xoxo
