After her mother’s sudden death, Ryanne Myers is home again. It has been fifteen years since she escaped Mount Pleasant and everyone and everything in it. Now she must oversee the closing of her mother’s affairs.
The only bright spot is Ryanne’s blossoming friendship with boarder CJ Richter. Ryanne senses that CJ just might be her soul mate, but the handsome excavator is somewhat of a standoffish loner.
After an unthinkable event, Ryanne’s life spins out of control, and she must deal not only with her grasping, selfish sister, but also a manipulative, wannabe suitor. CJ offers Ryanne a way out, but at what price? Beware: Everyone has secrets in Mount Pleasant…And they enjoy them!
5 Stars TOP PICK, Night Owl Romance
“Drama, romance, mystery, and murder, all centered around a little town. THE GOOD SISTER is an outstanding debut novel from Amielise Gable. Ms. Gable presents the reader with a unique love story with a cast of endearing yet almost misfits, who each have their own foibles as well as qualities that make them dear to the reader’s heart.”
“CJ, what are you doing out here?” The biting wind blew her hair all around her face.
When he heard the surprise in her voice, the warmth of embarrassment warmed his cheeks. “Can’t a man take a walk to clear his head?”
A wide smile crossed her face. “Possibly, but I find it a great coincidence that both you and I got that same idea only an hour apart, especially when you had a mammoth amount of paperwork to keep you busy all night. Fess up, CJ, what are you doing out here?”
She was enjoying this, playing with him. Ryanne wanted to hear it from his own mouth he was out on a frigid Saturday night looking for her. Well, maybe he would play with her for a while.
“I don’t know Ryanne,” he said looking up into the clear night sky. “You and I are a lot alike. Both of us are restless, both of us didn’t have the greatest childhoods that spilled over into our adult lives. Maybe…” he said dropping his eyes from the sky and settling on her, “we think alike, too.”
“Okay, I believe you,” she agreed. But it was clear in her amused expression that she knew he came out to look for her because he was concerned. “I guess I’ll see you back at the house then,” she dismissed him and began to walk into the cemetery.
Jaw dropping, he could believe this woman. She was walking alone, right into the middle of a dark cold cemetery. Who knew what lurked there? Teenage kids drinking and drugging? Homeless people who might be violent? And least he forget whatever the hell was in his bedroom that came to visit him the night he was down with the flu.
“Wait, Ryanne!” He called to her.
Turning back, she stopped and looked at him. “What is it?”
“Okay, it was fun for a moment, but now it’s just plain dangerous.”
Her brow creased with puzzlement. “What are talking about? Do you mean the cemetery?”
“Yes, I mean the cemetery. You don’t know what…or who is lurking in there. It’s Saturday night for God’s sake. Kids are probably partying in there. Not to mention it’s freezing.”
“Oh CJ, it’s so sweet that you care. But I’m perfectly fine. I’ve spent so much time in the cemetery growing up, both day and night, for more hours than I’m willing to count.”
“You know, I should just leave you out here! You’re so stubborn, not to mention delusional! But I’m not going to have you getting hurt or murdered on my conscience.” He never, never in his life cared enough about anyone to embarrass himself like he was right now. He didn’t want to care, didn’t want to fall in love and chance getting crushed when it all fell apart. Now it was all happening, and he was powerless to stop any of it.
Holding out her hand to him, she said, “Well, come on, I’ll show you.”
He stared mutely at her outstretched hand.
“Unless you’re afraid,” she added.
“I’m not afraid of anything…or anyone,” he retorted, taking her offered hand. The truth was, he was afraid of Ryanne, or more pointedly, he was afraid of what she would do to him if he got too close to her.
