but does it always bring happiness and security?
Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX—One of the leaders in the Chick Lit movement releases her first true romance novel since her popular Ashley Stockingdale series. Kristin Billerbeck’s newest novel, A Billion Reasons Why, delves into how our past affects our future, forgiveness, and loving with passion. It is Billerbeck’s first novel for adults in four years.
After graduating college, Katie McKenna moved from her hometown of New Orleans to California to escape her haunting past. She had resolved to live a quiet life, marry a practical man, and leave all her “worldly” desires behind. Her life was perfect. She had a fulfilling job, a cute apartment, and a wedding to plan with her soon-to-be fiancé, Dexter.
But then in walks Luc DeForges, her handsome ex-boyfriend. After rejecting Katie, Luc cornered the organic food market and became one of the most eligible millionaire bachelors. But now he’s back and asking her to go home to New Orleans to sing at his brother’s wedding. But Katie knows that Luc is not to be trusted. She doesn’t plan on being used by him.
Katie’s boyfriend, Dexter, is a practical man. He’s safe. He’s intellectual and punctual, and he’ll be a good dad. There are a billion reasons why Kate should marry him. And Dexter will propose as soon as she gets her grandmother’s ring from her mom. And Luc will provide her with a free trip home for just that purpose.
But can she resist the feelings she still holds for Luc? Can she face her past and come out clean? Can the passions she had as a young woman, which led to many of her past mistakes, still have a place in her life?
A Billion Reasons Why is an endearing romance that delves into the characters’ pasts to reveal their strengths and weaknesses. Readers can identify with the main characters and apply the lessons they learn to their own lives. Ultimately, it’s a story about forgiveness and love.
