About the Book:

The perfect couple.

Nicole Laramie and Chase Pennington would forever be called that in their home town of Rider Springs. Chase’s grandmother, Evelyn, thought her neighbors’ only daughter and her grandson were made for each other ever since the two of them were kids.

When Chase climbed a tree, Nicole climbed it higher.
When Nicole fell from her ten-speed and skinned her knee, Chase carried her home.
And when Chase took the field for Little League, Nicole cheered the loudest.


Until they were strangers.

While Chase climbed the social ladder in high school, Nicole climbed the academic one. Two best friends became enemies. And when the senior class voted them MOST PERFECT COUPLE in the yearbook, it was meant as a joke.

Only Evelyn, she never thought it was funny. She thought it was fate. And she was willing to wait 10 years just to prove she was right.


Guest Reviewer Frannie’s Thoughts:

Is was a sweet book and perfect for a Sunday (or any day for that matter) afternoon read in the sun, rain or quite place.  It is easy to read, professionally written and flows seamlessly.  It is a bit too short, but the overall story is wonderful, and it warms your heart.  A love story and coming-of-age for two young people. 

Chase Pennington the high school super star and Nicole Laramie the nerd and intellectual scientist had nothing in common when they were in high school.  But, prior to that they were thick as thieves as children and created a lot of havoc.  In high school they went their different ways only to be reunited later in life at Chase’s grandmother’s funeral.  How close is a bond with children?  How deep dose a friendship permanent?  This short story brings you to grips to who you are, who you love and why you love them. 

I loved the characters and hope that Ginger will bring them back to us with more depth and allow us to unravel the onion. 



About the Author: A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she often blends the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot quarterback, catcher, pitcher, point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has been writing and editing for a hella long time. She has told the stories of Olympians, politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and her work, visit her website at

When she’s not writing, the odds are high that she’s somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).
