Return to Welcome
Mercy Talbot left Welcome on a high—a golden-girl beauty queen who stepped into a bright, exciting future. But that was a long time ago. Now, she’s failed in her career, failed in love, failed her family—and she’s dead broke. All Mercy wants is to move forward with a fresh set of dreams—and get out of Welcome before it sucks her back in for good. One look at her precocious niece who desperately needs her sends Mercy on a journey into her past that will change everyone’s future.
Let me clarify. I’m not just mindlessly obsessed with him. I actually like Maurice. Letting him kiss me was a big deal for me. I’m still holding on to my V-card. And I want to hand it over to him every time I see him dressed in a suit.
I know that’s not how the song goes. But, for me, that’s exactly what happened. I met the man of my dreams on Christmas Eve. We shared one magical night of passion and I thought—well, it doesn’t matter what I thought. Because, Christmas morning, he left me under the mistletoe and I never heard from him again. Until he shows up at my best friend’s apartment in the middle of December this year. And I discover that not only did I not know my mystery lover’s true name, I never knew his identity, either.
