Into Something Good: Book 1 

That Special Something Series

by Stanalei Fletcher

 A poignant homecoming forms the foundation for new beginnings.


Cayme Foster returns home to deal with her mom's fatal illness and is faced with memories and secrets
she'd rather forget. Her old crush and his adorable eight-year-old son will make it even more difficult to leave town again.

Single dad Rick Morrison had his shot at marriage and isn't willing to risk rejection a second time. If only he wasn't compelled to rescue Cayme whenever he's around her, making it hard to keep his distance.

He's conflicted about helping Cayme save her home, but the truth rises with the floodwaters, and they just might find love on the high ground after all.


Indecision crept into her eyes, tinged with a touch of fear and sadness too. 

That protective feeling washed over him. “Or how about this? How about we tell your brother the truth— that I foolishly jumped in with both feet to rescue you from Peters by announcing our engagement. And after discussing it over tonight, we realized this is a good thing for both of us. It may have started out as a fake, but it’s real now.” 

Her gaze swung to his face. A tiny light of hope—of gratitude—gleamed in the depths of her blue eyes. 

Stepping closer, he captured her shoulders. She quivered under his touch. He wanted to wrap his arms around her and shield her from every single worry in her world. He couldn’t do that, but he could offer to bear some of her burdens. “Say yes, Cayme.”
