"I think it's safe to say I'm a bit of a book junkie and I'm enthusiastic about alot of them, but every now and then one comes along and takes your breath away and pulls you into its own little book bubble and makes everything in the real world fade away, for me THIS IS THAT BOOK." - Vicci

"This story gripped me, it held me captivated from page one." - Emma

"THIS book took me to an all new level of emotional heights and lows. It grabbed me and sucked me in with ease but then wouldn't let go, I spent days after carrying the story around with me and thinking about the characters." - Ashley

Book Description:

Counting Stars is an emotionally charged romance about love and loss – and learning to live after everything you’ve lived for has died.

I was with him for six years. Derek was my life, my future, and my dream come true. We had it all – the house, the cars, rings on our fingers, and we were even discussing a baby. Derek was my high school sweetheart, my lover, and my best friend.

Derek is dead.

At only twenty-two years old I am a widow. I’ve spent the last year of my life filtering through self-help books – searching for a way to heal the remnants of my heart.

I am broken.

It is my incessant searching that leads me to booking a month long trip with The Donnelley’s Wild Land Tour’s. I was supposed to tour with Gracie – but she is incapacitated and she’s left me in Logan’s care. If I could, I would turn and walk away from this tour. But I can’t. This is my last chance at learning to live again.

Logan doesn’t know I’m broken. When he looks at me, I feel strong again. I feel alive. He pushes me to learn new things, to experience new ways, and to fight. Logan, in all his bluntness has taught me to fight for what I want and what I believe in. I don’t know how it happened, but Logan picked up the pieces of my heart and helped me to rebuild it. In him, I’ve found acceptance in the hardest thing I had to face.

We all have a path, and for me, my path has been beautifully painful. I was fated; both blessed and cursed, to love two men with the entirety of my heart. Looking back, I wouldn’t change a day, because the pain of the lost life I had with Derek led me to the beautiful present I cherish with Logan.

***This novel does NOT end in a cliffhanger. It is a heartwarming romance for everyone who loves a happy ending. This is the first of four novels – each novel will feature a different Donnelley Brother. This can be read as a stand-alone but I do recommend reading the novels in order as characters from prior novels will appear in the later novels!***

All four Donnelley Brother Novels are currently available on Amazon!
