Catch up with your favorite characters and enjoy Bones and Sarah’s wedding while falling in love with the newest Whiskey-world couple, Penny Wilson and Scott Beckley, in this Whiskey series novella.
When everything you want is right in front of you, but it’s still out of reach…
Penny Wilson has a successful business, more friends than a girl could ask for, and a boyfriend she’s madly and passionately in love with. Scott Beckley is honest, loyal, hands down the best lover on the planet, and absolutely gaga over his nieces and nephews. Scott’s a keeper…as long as Penny doesn’t ever want to hear those three magical words that would take their relationship to the next level. Scott escaped abusive parents at seventeen and was forced to find his way alone in the world. Even though it’s been more than a decade and he’s reunited with his estranged sisters and built a good life in Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, he’s still tortured by his past. Penny knows he loves her with everything he has, but for a girl who wants a family and a guy who is afraid of having one, love might not be enough.
In for a Penny just reiterates what I love the most about Melissa Foster. No matter the kind of background or childhood her characters have, they will always have a chance to learn from their past. They're given a second chance to grow and prove that they are worthy of love and a future full of possibilities. To be blunt, Scott had a crappy childhood. He was forced to grow up with nobody to support him. After reuniting with his sisters and building a life in Peaceful Harbor, things take an unexpected turn. Scott has two choices: realize that he's a good man who has a wonderful future ahead of him or run. Which will he choose? Well, you'll just have to pick up this delightful novella to find out.
