Overview

From the author of The Opposite of Me and Skipping a Beat, an original eBook short story that shows whom we fall in love with may be the biggest—and happiest—accident of all.

Ilsa Brown wasn’t expecting a little, injured dog to lead her to the love of her life. But within months of their first meeting on a street corner in L.A., she and Grif, the dog’s owner, are engaged. Things between them are so blissful that Ilsa is stunned by the tension that erupts during their visit to Chicago to meet his parents, where she discovers that Grif’s old girlfriend, Elise, is still woven into his family. What Ilsa needs to know before she can walk down the aisle is whether Elise is still in Grif’s heart, too. 

Featuring a character from Sarah Pekkanen’s original eBook short story All Is Bright, Love, Accidentally is surprising and heartfelt. It’s a story about taking chances and choosing hope, and discovering what it means to love someone—and to let go of someone you love.

    Short stories are very different from complete novels in that the author must get to the point quickly and then end it quickly. As I knew I already was a fan of Sarah Pekkanen, it was a joy to read something different from her.

    The story begins with a young woman headed out on a second date that she isn't too excited about, she comes across a young man and sparks fly immediately, but he has an ex-girlfriend who is still in his family's life. I enjoyed the real struggle that each couple has as they come together and discover the other's past and if they are willing to live with any or all of the baggage.

    A sweet short story that I would recommend to readers who are new to Pekkanen or those who are already fans!

    Loving Sarah's e-short Stories!

    I adore e-short stories! Sarah is a wonderful author (I just discovered with her new book “The Best of Us” (a 5 star), which I read first, so diving into reading her other previous books. (I usually start with new ones which pull me into the author and then start backwards).

    Being in the online media world, front covers are a big draw as well as reading works of my favorite authors---especially with e-books, as the crisp colors are so appealing since you do not have the typical print front cover to view. All Is Bright has a feel good, rich front cover just as Love Accidently) especially if you live in South Florida where you never see snow. E-stories are very short-- you can start at midnight, get teased and a “preview” of what is to come, plus they are inexpensive.

    The story grabs you from the beginning as Elise who still thinks about her childhood sweetheart Griff, a guy she has dated most of her life and chose not to marry him when he asked as she felt the spark was just not there.

    I adore Ms. Pekkanen's writing style!

    This is my first read (long or short) by Sarah Pekkanen. I find her writing style to be fresh, interesting, easy to follow, and a so enjoyable, that I'm headed off to read ALL IS BRIGHT, which has been waiting in my TBR library, very next! And interested in looking into her other books. Reading the sample of THE BEST OF US has me intrigued to see where that story will go.

    For such a short read, LOVE, ACCIDENTALLY explores serious internal conflict....and has a very satisfying resolution. Highly recommended!
