Four best friends.
Four love stories.
Four happily ever afters…
Sutton Woods, Book 1: Ally’s story
Ally’s mother used to create magical events in The Red Barn. Now the red has faded and only echoes fill the barn that once rang with laughter and music. Ally’s father wants to tear down the structure at the edge of his property, but his seventeen-year-old daughter begs for one last party.
Carter will celebrate her eighteenth birthday on Halloween, so Ally decides to throw a surprise party for her newest friend. A Halloween-themed event will be the perfect way to say goodbye to the place where Ally spent so many happy years helping her mother plan parties. She furtively acquires Carter’s contacts in Cedar Lake, and then, just days before the big event, a handsome stranger arrives at The Red Barn and demands, “cancel the party, or else I will.”
Jasper, Carter’s cousin, still lives in Cedar Lake. Appalled when party invitations show up in the town that Carter and her mother fled just one year earlier, Jasper knows he must shut the party down before Carter’s past catches up with her, but one stubborn girl named Ally is standing in his way. As the days tick closer to Halloween, Jasper and Ally must find a way to put their differences aside and work together for Carter’s sake, but could one simple compromise change their lives forever?
