IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT
Dale is adept at weaving beautiful, romantic, heart-wrenching stories. She pays attention to the finest details,
and the effect knocks the wind out of you. Every single scene, character conflict and reaction is perfect. The only downside is that the story concludes, which means our time with these wonderful characters comes to an end.
Lana Biel has devoted much of her life to her sister Karin, Karin's business and her best friend Eli, always saying to herself that someday she'll travel the world. When she discovers she's pregnant, Lana realizes that someday is in real jeopardy.
Torn between giving her sister the baby she's always dreamed of and keeping the baby she's beginning to love, Lana turns to her best friend for the emotional support she's come to depend on. Eli, however, is tired of just being her friend and longs for something more. Lana is afraid to want Eli as much as she does; she needs him, and the risk of a romantic entanglement may be too much. When Eli confesses his love, will she take the risk, especially now that she needs his friendship more than ever? (FOREVER, Nov., 368 pp., $6.99)
