From author Liz Flaherty and others comes A Heartwarming Christmas #Romance #Holiday @LizFlaherty1

After the Happy Ending by Cheryl Harper
Ben and Jen. Blake and Miranda. Can anyone explain to me why I get a little sad when I hear about celebrity couples breaking up? I don’t know them or the circumstances or even their romantic tale, but the evidence that another ‘til-death-do-us-part has crashed is sad. It happens. Marriage is work. Love is work. Writing love and romance and marriage is work, too, but we don’t often have to figure out what happens beyond “I love you.” In “Making up under the Mistletoe,” I have a couple wading through what happens after real life kicks in. Josh and Ivy were high school sweethearts who married at the age where they were certain they had life all figured out. In other words, they were young. Now that Josh knows who he really wants to be, all of Ivy’s plans for his life no longer fit.
But she’s still the only person he wants to see the world with.
Together they have to figure out how to find the way back to forever. That means a little bit of friction, a whole lot of honesty, and the commitment to find a place that works for them both. She’s certain it’s Christmas Town, the place where they grew up. He’s just as convinced that’s the only place that can tear them apart. Sometimes happily-ever-after endings take some monitoring and adjusting. Ivy and Josh understand that real love is what happens after the wedding ceremony and forever happens one day at a time.
Cheryl Harper discovered her love for books and words as a little girl, thanks to a mother who made countless library trips and an introduction to Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House stories. Now she spends her days searching for the right words while she stares out the window and her dog snoozes beside her.

Cheryl, I love this kind of story. Like you, there are some celebrity breakups I get upset about, even though I don't know them. Maybe I want the relationship that looks like it's special and working to be that special. I haven't gotten to read your story yet, and I can't wait to get to it!

Liz Flaherty said...

It's a great story, Anna! I'm still bummed about Jen and Ben and hoping they work it out.

Anna Adams said...

That's exactly who I was thinking of, Liz! I so hope they work it out!

Anna J Stewart said...

I can't imagine how hard it must be to live in that media and paparazzi bubble. That any of them make it is amazing. That said, I think if any couple reconciles, it would be those two. :) Great post, Cheryl! <3
