The Bucket List Dare

What do you do when you’re facing 30? The biggest, wildest, craziest thing on your bucket list.

Four graduates from Texas A&M celebrate the last year of their 20s by tackling a major to-do on their bucket list. Each heads off for a different adventure, and get more than they bargained for . . .

Annie Flowers, a wedding photographer whose reputation is her pride and her job is her life, crashes the most extravagant wedding in the country—and walks away with the groom. (Save the Groom, by Jessica Ferguson)

Kat Brownlee, an army veteran and amputee, has always dreamed of climbing the most challenging mountain she could find. Now that her life and body have been drastically altered—does she dare? Darin Peters makes certain she does. (What Lies Ahead, by Pamela S. Meyers)

Jojo Merritt is a country veterinarian who has never jumped out of anything higher than a hayloft, much less an airplane. So when she finds herself harnessed to Mitch O’Hara for the tandem jump, the only question is how far she will fall. (Skydiving to Love, by Linda W. Yezak)

Love comes, lives change—all on a dare.
