New Year’s is such a magical turning point in the year–we all make resolutions and try to do a little better, be a little kinder and reach for what we’ve always wanted. Because anything’s possible at New Year’s…
I love New Year’s Eve and all the happy celebrations that happen that night, and I wanted to write a story about that… I wanted to write a story about a woman who’d lost everything in the previous year, and how–if she was willing to be vulnerable again–she might be able to get it all back. I ended up loving “The New Year’s Party” very much, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it. 🙂
Juline Brewer isn’t going to go to her sister’s New Year’s party. She’s thought of every excuse in the book why she can’t make it, but the truth is, Juline can’t imagine going to a New Year’s party that her ex is going to attend.
Shane and Juline broke up earlier in the year, and Juline has spent ten months away from the woman who drove her crazy, in every good and bad way. She hasn’t seen Shane in almost ten months, and she thinks it best to not see Shane ever again.
But when Juline’s sister guilts her into coming anyway, Juline tells herself she’s going to try to make the best of it. She puts on her prettiest dress and high heels, and desperately hopes that Shane’s not going to be there.
And secretly hopes that she will be.
One New Year’s night may change everything.
