Annie Doyle believes the answer is yes, but will she find it in time?

Fifty years of memories are hidden in the walls of the loft. Now Ophelia Browne is leaving the house and she’s leaving some very powerful memories behind. Annie needs to find just one… the one that will save Oliver’s life.

On the day of their wedding, Annie sees only happiness ahead, but when an accident calls her and Oliver back to Memory House, her world is changed forever.

After only three nights in the loft, Annie must now find the single most meaningful memory in Oliver’s mind. If she finds it in time, she can save his life, if she doesn’t…well that’s something she can’t afford to think about.

Readers will welcome back the much-loved characters from Memory House and enjoy a few new friends!

Oliver has wanted to make love to her – #fridayfiction

Oliver has said nothing about his plan, but for the past two days he has thought about little else. Not because he minds the daily commute to Wyattsville; but because the door to the other bedroom is less than three feet from the door to their room. As much as he cares for Ophelia, that’s too close for comfort.

Since the day Annie first appeared on his doorstep, Oliver has wanted to make love to her—not in a cautious way that hides beneath the covers and speaks in soft whispers to avoid being heard, but with a joyous passion that casts abandon aside.

Today he has three different architects coming to look at the house. His thought is to add a wing, one that is an exact replica of the loft, skylight and all.

The first one arrives at ten o’clock on the button. He checks the loft then walks through the remainder of the house.

“What you need is a completely new floor plan,” he says. “If we take down the wall between the living room and the dining area, we can create a pass-through to the kitchen and make it a great room.”

“We’re happy with the house just as it is,” Oliver replies. “All we need is a wing for the extra bedroom.”
The architect raises an eyebrow. “And you want it to look like that room upstairs?”

Oliver nods.

“That room looks like something a do-it-yourselfer put together. It’s not finished properly. There’s no beveling on the bookcase. The mitering on the baseboard is crooked as a drunkard’s hat and I’ll bet dollars to donuts that if you took a level to the floor, you’d find at least a seven degree slant.”

“You’ve got a good piece of property here,” he says. “Just give me the okay and I can turn this place into a showcase with nice clean contemporary lines. I’m visualizing an all glass walk-through that leads to a side wing suite.”

“I’m not interested in redoing the house,” Oliver repeats. “All I want is a wing that replicates the upstairs bedroom.”

The architect wrinkles his nose and shakes his head. “Sorry buddy, no can do,” he says. “I’ve got a reputation to uphold.

He takes back the business card lying on the table and walks out.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
