Share with Me is Book 1 in USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Seaside Chapel Christian romance series set on St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, a beach town where history is all around and the future is a moment away. Enjoy the hometown atmosphere and the warm southern beaches of St. Simon’s Island and the idyllic Golden Isles along the Atlantic Ocean.
Businesswoman and historic preservationist Brinley Brooks is home for the holidays on St. Simon’s Island to spend time with her parents and brother, and to accept her life as a single woman, not to get into another dead-end relationship.
But when Ivan plays that second movement out of one of Bach’s orchestral suites on his violin, it is as though her heart is finding a second movement in her love life. Or is she just lonely?
One thing leads to another, and Brinley ends up attending Sunday services at Seaside Chapel, that oceanfront church known for its wedding chapel and beach weddings.
And everywhere she goes, Ivan seems to be there…
Six years ago, Ivan McMillan was a budding crossover violinist, but that career was cut short when Grandpa Otto died. Ivan came home to St. Simon’s Island to live with Grandma Yun and her broken hip.
Now he has found a new road back to the orchestral stage. The last thing he needs is a detour he cannot afford.
But Brinley. Ah, Brinley. So pleasing to look at… So pleasant to be with…
When one of his worst nightmares comes to pass, Ivan feels obligated to show Brinley what it means to be a Christian living through adversity. But trusting God is the last thing on his mind as the crisis affects his career, his life, and worse, his relationship with Brinley. He can’t let her see him afflicted like this. Nope. He sure can’t. What is a man to do?
