The Story Before... The Art of Rivers

I’m Rivers Sullivan. And I was shot.

The good news is—I lived. It didn’t seem like good news, though. My fiancĂ©, Jordan, was shot, too. He didn’t make it. Only ten days before our wedding, I lost the love of my life.

Now, I’m in St. Simons Island, Georgia, to clean out and sell the beach cottage and art gallery I inherited from him. During the first twenty-four hours, I almost drown in the same area where Jordan’s sister did five years ago. Then I find out that people from a sober living facility are running the art gallery I own. Along with Jordan’s black sheep cousin, Cooper Knight.

The last thing I want is to be around people with addictions. My mother was an alcoholic who ended up with a brain injury. I spent my teen years being the grown up instead of the daughter.

The problem is I’m falling for Cooper. And I might need to work on displaying a little grace.

I’m Cooper Knight. And I’ve been in recovery for five years.

I’m an addiction counselor now, and when I’m free, I search the sandbars for victims caught unaware for the St. Simons dangerous tides. I know God forgives, but my family never will. No matter how hard I work to make up for my cousin’s drowning, I never quite feel like it’s enough. I sure never expected to find Jordan’s fiancĂ©e, Rivers, staying at the family cottage.

In a perfect world, Rivers would be everything I ever wanted in a woman. But the world isn’t perfect—especially not me. Besides, I couldn’t cause more pain to my family by getting involved with her that way. I just pray I can find a way to help Rivers move through her grief and on with her life.
