When Kelly Reynolds’s husband died, he left her—the awkward, cautious one—to raise their two young boys. She’s pieced herself back together, barely. Now she takes refuge in her routine: running her kids around and running the trails near her Idaho home.
Two years after her husband’s death, a chance encounter on a run brings Andrew into her life. But Andrew is Andy Pettigrew, the Andy Pettigrew, famous actor. Kelly hates risk, and a love affair with Andrew is certainly tempting fate. She doesn’t fit into his Hollywood world. She doesn’t own a pair of Louboutins, and she couldn’t walk five paces in them if she did. Andrew oozes cool. She reeks of dork.
But despite this, they click. It may be inexplicable, but it works. However, it’s also becoming clear that Andrew struggles with the pressures of his fame. Kelly’s hold on a so-called normal life is already tenuous, and as much as she might want to indulge the fantasy, she doesn’t know how either of them is supposed to cope with stalkerazzi and tweet-happy fans with camera phones. She and Andrew both have secrets that seem impossible to keep.
Beck Anderson’s witty, engaging writing yields an emotional tale of love, loss, and all the little things that make up a life. In the end, what is it that really holds us together? Kelly must decide if love can fix two people who might be broken beyond repair.
About the Author
|Beck Anderson believes in the power of perfectly imperfect women and in the healing power of love. Her new novel, Fix You, grew out of those beliefs and the time to write afforded by the worst Thanksgiving blizzard she’s ever witnessed in West Yellowstone.For Beck, the path to published novelist has taken lots of twists and turns, including a degree in anthropology, a stint as a ticket seller at a ski resort, a much-loved career as a high school English teacher, and a long tenure as a member of the best writing group ever, hands down.Beck balances (clumsily at best) writing novels and screenplays, working full-time as an educator, mothering two pre-teen males, loving one post-40 husband, and making time to walk the foothills of Boise, Idaho, with Stefano DiMera Delfino Anderson, the suavest Chihuahua north of the border.|

Excerpt from Fix You
By Beck Anderson
Beau’s asleep. His mouth is open. His head is soaked — this is a trait from my side of the family: head sweating at night when little. I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved it.
“Beau.” He is totally out. I look at Andrew. “Brace yourself. I’m gonna have to wake him up, and he’s not going to be happy about it.”
Andrew pulls himself up off the couch. “I’ll carry him.”
“Andrew, he’s eight. And our stairs are scary and narrow. And he’s a sweaty little beast.”
He looks right at me. His eyes are soft, vulnerable. I’m not sure what it means.
“Let me, Kelly. Let me help.”
“Okay.” I feel like I’m going to melt into a puddle of warm candle wax. Seriously.
He hoists him up, makes a funny face at me like Beau’s really heavy, and carries him almost effortlessly. I guess his taut physique probably involves the routine lifting of heavy things. Silly me.
He comes back downstairs.
I stand very still.
He takes my hand. He kisses me.
This time, I kiss back. I put my arms around his waist. He has a hand at the nape of my neck, playing with the twisty tendrils of hair there.
He pulls away and looks at me. “This was a good day.”
