I Do…Again by Nancy Fraser, Amazon Top 100 Author
Thirty-five years earlier, Lily Abbott and Mitch Colby exchanged wedding vows in a quaint ceremony attended by a small crowd consisting of four Micronauts, a one-eyed pet rock, two special-edition Barbies, and an assortment of stuffed animals. Officiated by Stretch Armstrong, it was the social event of their 8th summer.
Lily never forgot the childhood ceremony. Or the fact her best friend and first love had left her behind and relocated to Boston to pursue an expensive education. Now a divorcee, with college-bound twin daughters, Lily’s moved on and put the foolishness of first crushes and the childish dream of true love behind her.
At eighteen, Mitch had never wanted the expensive education his father mapped out for him. He’d have been perfectly happy to stay in Summerville, marry the love of his life, and settle down. However, when push came to shove, he’d not wanted to upset his ailing mother, and had left everything…and everyone…that he’d wanted behind.
The 25th reunion of the graduating class of Summerville High has brought Lily and Mitch back together at The Sands, a seaside resort on Last Chance Beach. Will one weekend together be enough? Or, is there a possibility for more?

Can’t Buy Me Love by Hannah Rowan
Things aren’t always what they seem.
Excerpt (I Do…Again)
He arrived at the designated area, the corridor just outside the Seashore Ballroom. The registration table was nearly empty. One box of welcome packets sat in front of a woman he should probably recognize, but didn’t.
Another reason to avoid these things like the plague. Trying to put names to faces you haven’t seen in over two decades was nearly impossible. Or, at least, it should have been.
Lily Abbot had been the exception. He’d have known her anywhere. From the front, the back, and even when she did her best awkward slip and fall on the dock. That was his Lily in a nutshell.
Not anymore, apparently. He’d heard through the grapevine that she’d married during her senior year in college. Some fellow from Chicago, an accountant or—
“You here to get checked in for the reunion?” the woman asked.
He glanced down at the table. “Yes, I am.”
“Mitch, right? Mitch Colby?”
Oh great…she recognized him and he hadn’t a clue.
“Yes, that’s me.” He tried to be inconspicuous while looking for a name tag, any clue to the woman’s identity.
She shot him an understanding smile. “Carol. Carol Henning. Well, Carol Temple now of course.”
Carol Henning? Jeez Louise. “Wow, Carol, you look fantastic!”
“Thank you. Losing a hundred pounds and getting rid of my thick glasses really helped.”
Author Bio and Links
Like most authors, Nancy Fraser began writing at an early age, usually on the walls and with crayons or, heaven forbid, permanent markers. Her love of writing often made her the English teacher’s pet, which, of course, resulted in a whole lot of teasing. Still, it was worth it.
Published in multiple genres, Nancy currently writes for four publishers. She has published thirty-one books in full-length, novella, and short format.
When not writing (which is almost never), Nancy dotes on her five wonderful grandchildren and looks forward to traveling and reading when time permits. Nancy lives in Atlantic Canada where she enjoys the relaxed pace and colorful people.
Nancy Fraser will be awarding $15 Amazon/Barns & Noble gift card to a randomly drawn winner via Rafflecopter during the tour. Find out more here.
