Thanks so much, Jeannie, for hosting my Over the Moon post! I just returned from the place that always puts me over the moon—the beach!! Whether it’s the Carolinas or the Gulf Coast, I adore all things beachy! I love to put my toes in the sand, eat big fat fried shrimp po-boys, watch the sun set over the water, and mourn my kids’ little sunburned noses when I see their bigger sunburned noses. So, bear with me while I share a few more of my favorites:
What I truly love and what really puts me over the moon are the times when teen girls relax their guard and play like little girls again without worrying anyone is around to see. That’s the true magic of the beach. It lulls and reminds us to play again like nobody’s watching.

About Again, Alabama…
Dragged back to her small town to help her mother recover from surgery while rescuing the family event planning business should be a cinch. Even for a disgraced television chef, right? Wrong.
Among the many secrets Cammie’s family’s been hiding is the fact that their historic home is falling down. Oh, and the man hired to restore the house, Grey Harrison, is the same high school and college love of her life who thrashed her heart and dreams ten years ago. Yeah, that guy.
Grey, a widower with a young daughter, has never stopped loving Cammie, and when they are face to face once again, the chemistry is off the charts. Cammie may be in full-blown denial, but letting go is no longer in Grey’s vocabulary, even when winning Cammie’s forgiveness and renovating their love may seem like an impossible build even for a master architect and carpenter.
As Cammie finds herself forgetting all the reasons she can’t trust Grey or love again, he finds himself remembering all the reasons he wants her to stay with him in Alabama… forever.
Susan Sands grew up in a real life Southern Footloose town in Northwest Louisiana, complete with her senior class hosting the first ever prom in the history of their tiny public school with half the town chaperoning. Is it any wonder she writes Southern small town stories full of porch swings, fun and romance?
Susan lives in Alpharetta, Georgia surrounded by her husband, three young adult kiddos and lots of material for her next book.
