Thriller writer Mia Kingsley has been hit with a serious case of writer’s block and she needs a little peace and quiet. A beach front property in Magnolia Sound seemed like the perfect escape and just the change of scenery she needs to get the words flowing again. That is, until her noisy neighbor starts running power tools and blasting music at all hours of the day and night. Before long, the next victim in her story starts to bear an uncanny resemblance to the contractor next door.
Austin Coleman never wanted to come back to Magnolia Sound. But sometimes, life takes an unexpected turn and the only way to get back on your feet is to go home. His plan is to avoid all things connected to his past, and renovating a beach house in the off-season is just the way to do that—there’ll be no neighbors and no distractions. Or so he thought until he almost maims his sexy neighbor with a flying sink. Despite his best efforts, trouble follows everywhere he goes.
At first she wanted to kill him. Now she wants to kiss him. Sometimes you have to wait and see where the story goes.

THE WAY THE STORY GOES by Samantha Chase
Kyle and Sydney’s story in The Way the Story Goes, book seven in Samantha Chase’s Magnolia Sound series, is an emotional and heartwarming tale of breaking down walls and rediscovering your true inner direction.
Mia Kingsley, a thriller writer, has lost her mojo and is suffering a major case of writer’s block. Seeking an escape, she finds a beach front property in Magnolia Sound, near her best friend and personal assistant, hoping the change of scenery will be what she needs to get her words flowing again. Only there’s a problem, the house next door is being renovated, with power tools and loud music going at all hours of the day, disrupting her peace and quiet. Soon, the next victim in her story starts to resemble the contractor next door.
Austin Coleman never planned to come back to Magnolia Sound, but sometimes, life going home is the only way to get back on your feet. He’s hoping that renovating a beach house, owned by a friend, during the off-season will keep him away from anything that could be connected to his past. He assumed that there would be no neighbors or distractions, until an ill-timed flying sink almost hits his sexy neighbor. Despite trying hard to stay out of trouble, once again it has found him. After meeting Austin, Mia went from wanting to kill him to wanting to kiss him.
Growing up in Magnolia Sound, Austin and his brothers were a bit wild, often getting into trouble. His great-grandfather saw potential in Austin and left an inheritance of money for a college education to give him a chance to pursue a career that followed his passion and no longer be judged for his father walking away from his family.
Mia grew up in Boston, the only child of college professors, and was pushed to be the genius, they believed her to be. Being with Austin and spending time with him, gives Mia an opportunity to view everything, including her writing, from another perspective. In fact, not only did Mia complete her book, she wrote the story she started with killing off Austin only to have a few twists and turns, with a little romance within it. The magnetism between them, along with the cracking electricity and sizzling chemistry led to wonderful story of pursuing dreams, passions, and learning to be flexible.
Ms. Chase wrote a wonderful, heartwarming and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing secondary characters giving Mia and Austin a chance at love, happiness and the possibility of a forever together. I highly recommend The Way the Story Goes to other readers.
