Image of Love Me Tender (When I Fall in Love)

In this realistic jump back to the ‘50s, readers will feel like they are in a malt shop listening to Elvis. Debbie and Johnny prove to be a sweet couple. Debbie is a strong young woman who puts her love for others and her family before her own priorities.

It’s 1957 in Laguna Beach, Calif., and all the teen girls are in love with movie and singing heartthrob Bobby Conrad. Debbie Carmichael organizes a charity concert to help with her father’s medical needs, with Bobby as the main performer. But when Bobby might have to back out at the last minute, Johnny Hartman, a rising star, offers to help. Johnny is the answer to a prayer and for Debbie, a chance for a future in love.
