My Replacement Husband
UNDER CONSTRUCTION/MISSING CHAPTERS: There's a difference between loving someone and being in love with them. For Julie (Jules) Carson, headstrong New Yorker but a Southerner at heart, this is what makes or breaks her relationship. After an unexpected ending to her nearly year long relationship, she's faced with the problem of going back home for her sister's wedding empty-handed and alone. Unless she wants to deal with her sister's hassling and her mother's crazed attempts at finding her a suitable husband, she's going to need to find someone—and quick. That's where freelance writer (and ex-boyfriend), Evan Morgan, comes in: fresh out of writing material and losing focus on what's actually important to him. He decides to embark on a journey with Julie back to her hometown as her "replacement husband" and possible ally. As they grow closer, neither of them realize the actual consequences of leaving things unsaid and done until they're both presented with unanticipated problems from the past that they aren't ready to deal with. Everything starts spiraling out of control when she realizes that Evan's eliciting feelings that she's buried away a long time ago. She's uncertain of the future and scared of the unknown. All she knows is life doesn't always go the way you want it to. Sometimes, it gives you just what you need.
