The Dweller on Mountain White: An Accidental Love Story by R.J. Kenzie

An Accidental Love Story.

Beth Porter’s intent to relax and get her life in order on a personal ski trip is shattered when she makes a wrong turn, gets lost, and careened her car into a snow-filled ditch on Mountain White. Delirious, and half-unconscious, she is plucked from the brink of death by a mountain monster, or so she thought.
The mountain monster had a name, and it was Tyler Skov, a quiet mountain dweller who prefers books to television and walkie-talkies to cellphones. Accustomed to the silence and living alone, he is forced to adjust to Beth’s non-stop chatter and New York state of mind.
Learning to coexist, they discover that they have more in common than they realized and that an accidental car crash created more than a friendship, it created a bond that could not be broken, or forgotten.

Where Our Stories Leave Us by Kelsey Lasher

“I wondered if this would work out like a movie or a perfectly timed novel. I had envisioned that it would when I made the plan but now, I wasn’t so sure. I had given myself a limit; fill up the tank three times and wherever I was when that last tank was gone was where I was stopping.”It’s been a year and a half since Willa Durham’s world has fallen apart and far longer since Jacob Hawkins’s life caved in on itself. In an attempt to drown out the memories that haunt her, Willa sets out in search of a fresh start. When she lands in Jacob’s small town in Colorado surrounded by quirky yet deeply lovable people with stories of their own, they both find that life may yet hold joy for them after all. Told from Willa’s broken turned hopeful point of view and Jacob’s guarded yet insightful perspective, Where Our Stories Leave Us is a novel about hurt, healing, and how love can take our past and give it a future.
