You may or may not know that I’m currently working on 2 books. This week, I’m going to focus on String Beans…book 2 in The Girls of Beachmont series.
In Fumbled, you met Dani and Tabor and hopefully enjoyed their sweet story of finding each other. There was mention on Dani’s friend Viola and her husband Will, the musician. I’ve been enjoying getting to know these characters and I have to say, I love Viola’s friends. (I think you will too.)
Anyway…String Beans is her story and I really hope you like meeting all of these new people. So, here’s an excerpt, and not the one included in the back of Fumbled.

He looked down at me and dipped his face to my ear so I could hear him. “You finally made some friends,” he teased.
“Hold up…you’re smiling at me. On purpose. Is this what drunk Vi is like?” he asked, nudging his arm against mine.
“Shut up,” I laughed. “I had three shots. That’s it.”
“Viola,” Callie sang loudly as she stood next to me and gripped my hand tightly. “Let’s dance.”
“Actually, I’m ready to get back home.”
“What? It’s only one,” she said as she stuck out her bottom lip. “I’m not ready to go yet.”
One? Already? I pulled out my phone and was shocked that she was right.
“Have we really been here almost two hours?” I asked of no one in particular.
“Yeah,” she laughed. “Hell, it only took thirty minutes to get into this place.”
“How much longer do you plan on staying?” I asked.
“What’s your hurry? You don’t really want to leave, do you?”
Before I could answer, Wyatt spoke up.
“Don’t worry about it. I’ll take her home. I was heading out anyway.”
Callie’s eyes went wide and I made a face trying to silence her with a death stare, but she was too far-gone to notice.
“Sorry, Vi’s with me,” I heard Dallas say from behind us. His friends were no longer in sight and I was grateful he spoke up. But when Wyatt turned to face him, he shook his head and smiled. “I mean…she’s all yours. Take her.”
“Thanks a lot,” I mouthed, narrowing my eyes.
“You’re welcome,” he mouthed back.
I sort of wanted to hug him and kill him at the same time.
So there you have it! Be sure to stop by next week for details about my new YA standalone that will be out by this summer. I don’t have an actual release date yet, but as soon as I do, I’ll share! ❤ Have a great week!
