The Best Man by Lydia Michaels is now live!
Patrick fell for Julie in kindergarten, when she shared her snack with him. As her childhood best friend, he adored and protected her for years, until she gave her heart to someone else. Loving Julie meant letting her choose her own path, so he did the gentlemanly thing and bowed out of her life, but never stopped loving her from afar.
When Patrick returns to Jasper Falls for his brother’s wedding, Julie is there–alone–and he decides it’s time to hang his heart on the line, but Julie has been keeping secrets, too.
Is it ever too late for a first love? When it comes to Julie Cook, there could never be another. And, this time, Patrick Clooney is determined to prove himself as the best man.

Pat has always treasured his friendship with Julie and always wanted the best for her even if that meant that she would be with another man. Pat has recently returned to his hometown to not only attend his brother’s wedding but to open up his medical practice. He has agreed to pretend to be dating his friend Jo, Julie’s sister, to make their homecoming easier for both of them but finding out that not only was Julie attending but that she was alone was a complication he wasn’t expecting.
Julie thought she had her Prince Charming and her happy ever after all planned out only to find out that the truth was much different. She certainly wasn’t expecting that the feelings he now inspired in her went beyond friends especially since he is dating her sister. Let the fun begin!
This is a heartwarming story about love, family and new beginnings. Between the secrets and misunderstandings they definitely had some challenges to overcome but there is no denying they belong together. The narrator did a great job with all the characters.
