Bethany Minor has returned home for her mother’s funeral. She fled the town of her birth fifteen years earlier after being left at the alter by her first love, Dane Brennan. She has no choice but to face Dane as his family’s funeral home is handling her mother’s funeral.
Life for Dane Brennan took a tragic turn after his one night stand that produced a surprising pregnancy. In the years that passed, he experienced death, divorce, and family problems that never really resolved. Seeing Bethany again only brings to his mind what could have been if not for his one, catastrophic mistake.
But as Dane and Bethany reacquaint, they realize their love never really died, and that just maybe it is possible to reclaim the life they should have had together. But Bethany wants answers about the past-answers Dane is reluctant to give. And Bethany herself has an explosive secret that might very well split them apart once again.
“Sometimes in Autumn” is a deeply emotional novella about tragedy turned to triumph, that true love may very well endure over the years, and it is possible to have a second chance. One thing I love about Natalie-Nicole Bates’ stories is the emotional punch she is able to create. Dane Brennan’s transformation is fabulous. She has a unique style not readily seen these days. “Sometimes in Autumn” is an amazing contemporary perfect for the Autumn season.
Fifteen years ago, Bethany Minor fled her hometown after being left at the alter by Dane Brennan. After the sudden death of her mother, she is forced to return home and face her past.
The years have been hell for Dane, and seeing Bethany again only reopens wounds he long thought closed.
When they realize the flames of their past love never died, Bethany and Dane will need to confess all before they can have a chance to reclaim their life that once should have been.
But when the truth of the past is finally revealed, will they still stand as a couple?
