Joy Neon’s new book is a lovely romantic novel about the life of a school teacher after the bell rings.
“After the dismissal bell, teachers lead private lives. School Counselor Kelsey desperately wants to be a writer and has decided to follow the advice to “write what she knows” by writing about her friends at school and her life as a school counselor. However, as she strives to write, Kelsey may be missing the true story.
Kelsey’s friend Randi is the school secretary. She was in a relationship that left her feeling like she lost her identity and doubting her own judgment. She doesn’t trust herself to be in a relationship and rarely has more than a first or second date. Despite her love for her job, she would like to have more in her life. Too bad the guys she meets are all the same and only care about their own needs.
Dustin is a delivery driver who feels like he is drifting. After losing his best friend, he realizes his dreams for his future were more his friend’s dreams than his own. Dustin dates, but generally manages to lose interest after one or two dates. He’s looking for love despite the fact that he doesn’t think it exists…”
Trusting Her Judgment is the first book in the After the Dismissal Bell Series. Look for other books in the series to discover more about the private lives of teachers after the dismissal bell rings.
