The crossing paths of friendship, family, love, and loss are often complicated.

June Deckert and Caroline Smith sparked a friendship in college that carried them through graduation. Although they are complete opposites in every way, they have spent the last four years inseparable.

That is, until now.

June finds herself falling for a man who seems unattainable. As she works side by side with him on a new media campaign, their feelings for each other come alive. But when his actions start to speak louder than words, she wonders if she’s missing something.

Meanwhile, Caroline is fighting against her feelings for a recent acquaintance, and she decides to keep her new love interest a secret from June. Overwhelmed by these new emotions, her moods change swiftly, swinging up and down like a yo-yo.

While June and Caroline try to maneuver their way through new relationships, Caroline starts lying to June to protect her from a truth that threatens to break her heart and tear them apart.

In the end, Caroline’s deceit will test their friendship, and June will have to decide if her chance at love is worth putting her heart on the line.

Dream cast for Crossing Paths

Dreamcast Crossing Paths


I LOVED this book!  I felt such a wide range of emotions while reading this book – joy, sadness, happiness.  I laughed a lot during the miscommunications, cried during the losses and rejoiced in the reconciliations.  I felt like this story could have happened to me or any one of my friend or family.  June has an overprotective family, Caroline isn’t as close to her family as June.  Then there is their friendship that developed in college and continued afterwards, this reminds me of many of the friendships that I developed in college through my sorority and that they still continue to this day.  Then there is the mystery man, who isn’t quite the mystery…..well he is but he isn’t.  You’ll have to read the book to figure out what that means, I can’t spoil it for you at all!

This book was a great combination of feelings that it evoked and excellent writing so we had to give it 5 paws

About the Author

Melanie_Stinnett_author_photoI have enjoyed reading and writing since I was very young. Some of my fondest memories from childhood are of spending time with my mom or grandma reading a good book. Over the years, it never crossed my mind that writing my own novel would be an attainable goal. After reading several independently published novels by Jamie McGuire, Colleen Hoover and others, I decided I needed to give that dream a chance. So, I began writing. My debut novel, Crossing Paths released on August 28, 2013.

When I’m not reading and writing, I enjoy spending time with my three favorite guys: my husband and my two little boys.

In addition to being an author, I work as a Speech Language Pathologist to provide therapy to adults who are dealing with speech, language, cognition or voice deficits. My day job is rewarding in many different ways and I love having the opportunity to help others in a time of need.
