True Love • Real Laughs • Pure Fiction
If Only in Our Dreams
A Christmas secret upends Harper Deering’s life and relationships. She might lose one loved one in order to cherish another.
Harper has figured it out. The most fulfilling Christmas celebrations go beyond the giving of gifts and involve the giving of one’s self—a mirroring of the original Christmas, so to speak. She’s organized her family’s traditions accordingly.
But the discovery of a lifelong secret on Christmas morning rocks her world and sets her on a course that challenges her ideas of generosity and loyalty. Is there such a thing as being too sacrificial to keep a loved one happy? Harper has always been a risk taker, but the relationships at stake now are all too precious. Whom is she willing to lose?
"I sat down and picked up The Guy I'm Not Dating not really intending to read it, just thinking I'd glance over a few pages. Two hours later I'm still 'glancing over' those pages and laughing enough to make my husband ask, 'What is so funny?' Later the same night, I turned to the last page and had to declare, 'Loved it! Loved, loved, loved it!'"
(Roseanna White, Christian Review of Books)
"With its three-dimensional characters and a quaint setting, this series debut by the author of Sunset Beach and Beach Dreams, which both won state RWA Awards, is certain to earn Perry new fans."
Praise & Reviews
"Trish Perry has penned another entertaining romance that is fun and engaging yet encompasses the serious issues of prejudice, overbearing parents and how childhood shapes us."
This devotional should be labeled "Manual for Life." The authors show the pains, problems and persisting nightmares of everyday life and balance them with the light of hope in Jesus. I definitely recommend His Grace is Sufficient...But Decaf is Not for anyone seeking to find God's assurance and encouragement. "
(Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of more than 110 books, including Knowing You, Kingdom of Love, and the Heart of Cheyenne series)
"Beach Dreams is a fun, contemporary romance about how God uses even our mistakes to bring about His divine purposes--the perfect getaway read."
(CBA Retailers + Resources)
"Trish skillfully weaves authentic human emotions into a well-paced story which combine to set this above an everyday
romance...Unforgettable is a delightful story and my favorite Trish Perry read. Put on your dancing shoes and grab a copy for yourself!"
