Welcome to Beyond the Book. Before I share an excerpt from Flood I'd like to tell you about my RomCon review. They gave me 5 stars and said in part,
This story was fantastic, with plenty of plot surprises that I didn't expect! A It's the kind of story that stays with you because of the intensity of the circumstances and you remember the characters.
I really enjoyed reading this story and hope to read more from this author.

Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria De Luca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces around them were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life. When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.
“Stole a car.”
“That’s grand theft auto,” Lila said.
Aria giggled. “Stop borrowing terms from your
favorite crime show. Seriously, though, how long will Caleb be in prison?”
The receptionist sighed. “Another eighteen months. Caleb’s a nice guy. He made a mistake, but we all think he’s paid his debt to society. The director already told him if he wanted a job at the shelter once he was free, it wouldn’t be any problem.”
She laid her hand on Aria’s arm, her eyes wide and intense. “You know what Caleb did?”
Aria shook her head.
“The director told him he didn’t have to come to work on Friday if he didn’t want to. That’s the day Peaches was scheduled to be put down, but he said he had to be here. He said he couldn’t leave her to die alone. He wanted to hold her and comfort her until her soul went free.”
