Overview

After more than a year of grieving the loss of her late husband, a beautiful young widow, Jessica Branson, feels the time has come for her to move on with her life. She just wants to feel like a woman again. She wants to be held and loved, and made love to.

Sitting at her vanity, getting ready for her day, she remembers a list she'd compiled in her head years ago - her back-up list - a list of men she would consider dating if she found herself alone. Going through the list, she strikes off names she can't remember why she'd listed in the first place. As the list dwindles down nothing, Jess feels that she's forgetting someone... but who?

Later, when she enters a local super-market, she sees a promotion for a New Orleans Weekend Get-Away and the wheels in her head start to turn... Daniel, the handsome and wealthy, southern gentleman, who just happens to be her deceased husband's best friend.

Join Jess on her journey to live again. Will she find love and happiness? Will it be with Daniel? A force of nature seems to be drawing them together, but do they stand a ghost of a chance at being united... or will a mysterious intruder claim Jess as his own?

Take the trip with Jess as she travels from small town Jasper, Alabama to the bright lights and smooth jazz of New Orleans, Louisiana...but hold on to your seat, as this trip is one neither she, nor you are likely to forget.

Editorial Reviews

Carl Henegan
The Back-Up is Sandee Watkins' second book in the romance genre. She out did herself with this unique twist on a taboo question. She tapped into the internal unaddressed question of what happens when we have the opportunity to come face to face with the person you would consider sharing a romance with if your current situation disappeared.
I found the angle she took with “The Back-Up” was beyond clever and I for one was just blown away at her unique approach.
