One day while watching the Interstate exit for her dad’s long awaited return, Libby’s life is rocked when Peter Jamieson steps off his tour bus and into her life. After a couple chance meetings with Peter, Libby breaks away from her perfect behavior and her life changes course.

Peter longs for normalcy away from the screaming fans who know nothing about the real him. He is amazed to discover Libby has never heard of him or his band. Soon their friendship turns to love. While Peter battles his family’s growing interference so he can spend time with Libby, she struggles with her eccentric aunt who turns more bizarre each day.

Excerpt from Snapshot

“Can I ask a question? Without you getting mad?” Adam asked.

“Depends. Is it going to be a stupid question?” She smirked, knowing her words would annoy him.

“From your point of view, everything I say is stupid,” he answered.

“True.” She gloated.

“You didn’t have to agree. That was your chance to say, ‘No, I think you’re brilliant and witty.’”

“Nah, I wouldn’t want to lie.” She heard Adam chuckle.

“Okay, risking my fragile ego, and taking the chance that I’ll be crushed by you once again, here goes. I know your dad was far from a stellar parent, but didn’t you ever see the genius side of him?”

“Oh my god!” She lifted her paddle and turned in her seat. “Seriously! After the things I told you, you’re going to be like everyone else and go, ‘Oh, but he’s so talented. He’s an icon. He’s a frickin’ master of his craft!’” Marti mimicked the words.

“I’ll take that as a no. You are not ready to talk reasonably without flying into a rage.”

When not writing, Angie is concocting ways to make more dreams come true, whether it be tickets to a Broadway show or convincing her family they should rent an RV and travel the country. She’s still working on that one.
