The Trouble with Goodbye

Book 1, A Fairhope New Adult Romance

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Two years ago, Leigh Anne Davis shocked everyone in tiny Fairhope, Georgia when she broke up with her wealthy boyfriend to attend an Ivy League university a thousand miles away. At school, she finds a happiness and independence she’s never known.

Until one terrifying night takes it all away from her.

With no place else to go, Leigh Anne heads home to reclaim her old life. A life she worked so hard to escape. On the outside, she seems like the same girl everyone has always known. But deep inside, she’s hiding a terrible secret.

That’s when she meets Knox Warner, a troubled newcomer to Fairhope. His eyes have the same haunted look she sees every day in the mirror, and when she’s near him, the rest of the world fades away. But being with Knox would mean disappointing everyone all over again. If she wants to save what’s left of her old life, she has no choice but to say goodbye to him forever.

Only, the trouble with goodbye is that sometimes it’s about courage and sometimes it’s about fear. And sometimes you’re too broken to know the difference until it’s too late.

This is Book 1 of the Fairhope series. While each book can be read as a stand-alone, some characters interactions and events will be more meaningful if you follow this series from the beginning.

Customer Reviews

Easy read, good storyline

At first I wasn't really that into this book. I didn't like the use of cliches and there are a few cheesy lines. The story line isn't too unique, very typical Nicholas Sparks type novel. As I kept reading though the writing seemed to work better. The story also became a bit more developed. With it turning into a series it seems that the development will continue as well. I also think the author did a good job of handling the story's material, probably because of her relation to it. I'm excited for the next installment. Yeah, there were some corny parts and lines, but it didn't take away from the overall quality of the story. I'm happy I stuck with it.

A great read

I was truly touched in many ways by this story , It broke my heart but the courage it takes to make your own stand was there and I can't imagine how much guts it takes to do it on your own
Thank you for a touching true life story
