(A Huckleberry Bay Novella)
by Kristen Proby
From New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Kristen Proby comes an all-new small town romance set in her beloved Huckleberry Bay series, Cherry Lane!
Sometimes, love is waiting in the most unexpected of places.
Zeke Cross is a big city guy who finds himself living in the smallest town on the face of the earth, running an auto repair shop with his best friend. Not just running, but owning. He’s not used to sleepy little towns. He craves noise, excitement, and people. And yet, he’s grown to love the town of Huckleberry Bay, and the people who have welcomed him into the fold. Almost everyone has been kind and accepting of the outsider.
Everyone except Cherry Dubois.
Cherry is a small town girl, and she misses the sleepy community from her childhood. Now, her home is overrun by move-ins, who seem hell-bent on bringing big city ideals to her little town, and ruining what she’s always had. Her neighbor, Zeke, is the most annoying of all, with his loud music and arrogant attitude. How is she supposed to think when he’s around? Sure, he’s handsome, but that almost makes it worse.
Then Cherry needs Zeke’s help, and she finds out that the big city guy isn’t all that bad, especially when he has his hands on her and makes her forget all the reasons why she doesn’t like him. But at the end of the day, will she be able to trust this man to stay for good, or will her worst fears come true?

An Exclusive Interview with Kristen Proby
Can you tell us why or how you chose to write about this couple for your novella?
I knew from the moment I met Zeke in the first chapter of the first book of this series that he would need a story!
If someone were to narrate your life, who would you want the narrator to be and why?
It’s a no brainer. I want Oprah.
If you could watch one scene from this book be played out like a movie, which one would it be and why?
The first part of chapter one, because they just can’t stand each other, but she’s in a bind, and he is so chivalrous and wants to help her. It’s a fun one.
What’s the worst thing you’ve eaten out of politeness?
I never eat anything out of politeness. I have a husband for that.
How did you come up with the title for this book?
The heroine’s name is Cherry, and it seemed to fit!
