I love this book! If you love the movie Sweet Home Alabama that starred Reece Witherspoon and Josh Lucas then you will love this story!! The book starts of a tad differently, but once Presley returns to Bell Buckle and puts her old boots back on, it’s Melanie all over again 🙂 A cowboy with a heart of gold, a stubborn woman who doesn’t know what she wants and a town that can’t stop interfering, it makes for lots of laughs, a few tears and one hell of a happily ever after!
Author Corinne Michael’s new story Say You’ll Stay tells the story of Presley Mae Townsend, a young woman who grew up in the small town of Bell Buckle. A blink-your-eyes-and-you’ll-miss-it community known for its home-baked pies, horse ranches and nosy busy bodies! Presley Mae and her boyfriend Zach Hennington were childhood sweethearts with big dreams and even bigger ambitions. As soon as the pair were able, Presley followed Zach across the country to attend college and support Zach in his dreams to become a pro baseball player. But all their young plans are torn apart when Zach is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity. The catch? He had to leave Presley behind.
Fast forward seventeen years and Presley is happily married, a mother to twin boys and has a growing new business. Everything was wonderful, until she left work early and discovers her husband had passed away. Just when you think things can’t get any worse, life throws her another devastating curve. When Presley finds out her husband was in debt and that their life insurance won’t cover any expenses, Presley and her two sons are left with no other choice but to return to Bell Buckle and the community she has been avoiding all her adult life.
Unbeknown to Presley, Bell Buckle is the perfect place for Presley to find the girl she was, accept her losses and find a new road to happiness. It is also the same place her childhood sweetheart returned to, in the hope of making amends and finding happiness. The town will meddle, friends will meddle, and family will meddle but in the end it is up to Presley and Zach to make amends and forgive each other for the past. Can Presley let go of the past and find the happiness she wants with the one man she already bared her soul to? I guess you will have to download a sample via Amazon or buy the book to find out 🙂

Amazon Premise –
One word – Stay. It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him. That was seventeen years ago.
I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.
Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.
This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . .
