So thrilled to place in such a competitive contest! Huge thanks to the NEST Contest coordinators, chairs, and judges! This story about love and loss, forgiveness, belonging and family holds a special place in my heart. It takes incredible bravery to reach for a new beginning, but everyone deserves a second chance at love!

Caroline needs a new beginning. Shocked to discover she’s also ready to give love a second chance, it’s heartbreaking to find out Sam won’t mix business and pleasure. Can she convince this cowboy that true love is worth the risk?
