Having lived as a nomad for most of her life, Shay Lane is desperate to find a place to call home. Yet, she follows in her estranged mother's wandering footsteps and bounces from town to town, never settling down, because it's the only way she knows.
That is until her car dies outside Wishing, Missouri, and she finds herself stranded in a small town filled with nosy neighbors and too many questions. Shay is eager to leave as soon as she can but when random gifts start appearing, her curiosity gets the best of her. Shay doesn't know what to think or who to thank, or what they expect in return.
As Shay settles into a life in Wishing, she searches for the identity of her anonymous benefactor. With each new gift, the threads of her life and her mother's begin to unravel. If she pulls the wrong one, she may never find her mother or the home she's been searching for.

About the Author
As a child, Andrea found her creative outlet through rewriting the lyrics to the songs she heard blaring through the speakers of her mom’s 1980-something Dodge Charger. In her teens, she found herself drawn to pop and country music and started penning lyrics filled with the pining of teenage dreams. She continued writing songs well into her twenties, but eventually found her way to college where she studied marketing and public relations.
It was in her final semester at Middle Tennessee State University that she finally put pen to paper and decided to write a full-length novel. Her first novel, Bittersweet, never made it past the hands of her friends. In November of 2013, Andrea made the commitment to write 50K words in
30 days as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). That novel, Life is But a Dream, was released in 2014.
Andrea's follow-up novel, Happily Ever Never, is set for release in the fall of 2018.
Andrea currently lives in Nashville with her husband, Jeff, and their two children, Jackson and Annabeth. She has a B.S. in Mass Communication from MTSU and an MBA from the University of Memphis.
