Secondhand Heart
by Kristen Strassel.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: October 7th 2014 by Kristen Strassel.
Daisy Mangold thought she had her life figured out until a roadside bomb in Afghanistan changed everything. Now a twenty-one-year-old military widow, Daisy moves back home to start over.

Cam Hunter won the reality show The Spotlight, and thought he was on his way to becoming the next big country star. But when whispers of how he won begin to surface, Nashville is less than welcoming. After he loses his record deal, Cam heads back home to open a country bar.

When Daisy meets Cam, she isn’t sure she’s ready to let go of the ghosts from her past. Cam’s ex-wife isn’t ready to move on either, and the tragedy she causes will expose Cam’s secrets and shatter Daisy’s family.

Will Daisy be able to follow her heart into a future with Cam, or will her grief keep her trapped in a past that no longer exists?

Excerpt

My phone started vibrating at quarter of two. Ev. She probably wanted to know how the interview went. I hit ignore. Nothing to see here, people. Keep moving. She kept calling, and I kept hitting the little red button. Finally, she got the hint, and texted.
I know you’re hitting ignore. And I know you didn’t go.
Fuck. I stared at the message for a minute, and considered ignoring it, too. Instead, I faced the music and called her back. She wasn’t going to leave me alone.
“You’re kidding, right? You blew him off?” She was already mid rant when she answered the phone.
“I didn’t want to waste his time.” Or mine, for that matter. I’m sure he’d had plenty of second thoughts, too. If he’d even remembered he’d made the appointment.
“So you stood him up?” Ev’s voice was shrill. “Cam just called and asked if you were all right. And now I look like an idiot.”
“First of all, there is no way that some reality show star is interested in me.” The whole thing seemed even more ridiculous when it was no longer bathed in a beer haze. “And I’ve never worked in a restaurant.”
“You don’t know what he wanted,” Ev protested. “And it’s not like you can’t learn something new.”
“I am learning new things. I’m concentrating on my classes.” Sort of.
“Bullshit. You’re hiding.” My sister could call me out in a way everyone else was too polite to do. “I rescheduled your interview for three. You can thank me later. And so help me God, if you don’t show up this time---“
“You’ll make me wear an ugly bridesmaids’ dress?” I cracked myself up, even though I was pissed at her for actually making me go through with this.
“The absolute worst. Think eighties prom. In fluorescent yellow. You will look sallow as fuck.”
“I’m almost tempted to see if you can actually find such a monstrosity. Remember, the pictures are forever.” Both of us died laughing. “Fine, I’ll go. But—“
“But what?”
I sighed. I had nothing. “I don’t know. I might want to wear that dress now, just because.”
“Be careful what you wish for. And I want all the details.” Just to make sure she got the last word in, Ev hung up on me.
