She’s about to launch her dream business. The last thing she needs is a distracting housemate and his son…
Shelby is excited to open a shop with her best friend. But with Janna just-married and moved out, she worries their hopes of starting a boutique will never come true. And things get more complicated when her old distrust of men is put to the test by her handsome new roommate and his little boy…
With Oktoberfest decorations forgotten and replaced by Christmas cheer, she slowly allows Shane and the child a space in her heart. But she doesn’t trust her second chance at romance or the success of her boutique when surprising news threatens her newly minted courage.
Can Shelby find the strength to let her ambitions flourish, along with her new passion?

Author Bio –
Deborah King is a spirited woman who was inspired to pursue her dreams due to her mother’s death from early onset Alzheimer’s disease. She has the unique ability to read people and tackle life’s hardships.
Deborah is a distinctive new voice in women’s fiction. After raising two children, working with a not-for-profit wildlife rescue organization, and reading too many books to count, she retired from her personal training and weight management business to follow her dream of writing.
Deborah is extremely grateful for having the opportunity to work with many different people sharing and teaching what inspires her, which you will catch glimpses of in her books.
She lives in Missouri with her supportive husband, two cats, who believe they’re dogs, her mini fitness store, and her eclectic collection of books.
Q & A
Ms. King generously answered several questions for me, even though I was late in getting them to her. So sorry!
1. I see you have an Octoberfest going on in the story, any personal experience with that festivity? We have some fun-loving Germans in our family, so, you know, just curious.
Answer: I do know how to cook a few German foods. Does that count? I’ve attended my fair share of Oktoberfest celebrations when I spent a few years living near a German community. Autumn is also my favorite season to spend outdoors. I enjoy hiking and the changing colors are so spectacular.
2. I’m so sorry about your mother. Mine passed away last year to cancer. What was the most useful lesson your mother’s life taught you?
Answer: I’m sorry for your loss. There were many lessons I learned from my mother’s experience, but the most important was to never take life for granted and to follow your dreams.
3. How has working with a wildlife rescue organization affected your writing?
Answer: I adore animals and was so thrilled to work with the wildlife rescue organization. My stories are filled with animals and the role they play in our lives. Not to mention, their unconditional love. I can’t imagine living in a world without them.
