How is Going All the Way connected to Sapphire Falls?
Seth Murphy is from Chicago, and grew up an orphan in the foster care system. He came to Sapphire Falls during the festival with his girlfriend Anna. Grew roots there and he is now working part-time in the auto shop for Dylan and fixes up old cars on the side as a hobby.
Anna Richards was born and raised in Sapphire Falls. She went off to college in Chicago and stayed there. In Going All the Way, she returns home with Seth to visit her grandmother, Lucie Richards, who is good friends with Kendra Bennett. Anna and Seth end up staying in the farmhouse with her grandmother by the end of the story. Anna takes over the vet clinic in town from Dr. Gustafson, who is looking to retire to Florida to be closer to his grandkids.
From NYT and USA Today Best Selling author of the Ecstasy Spa series comes a story about how a small Nebraskan town reminds a couple on the verge of breakup why they fell in love with each other in the first place.
As Annabelle travels with Seth to Sapphire Falls to help her ailing grandmother, she wonders if their relationship will survive the trip. Seth’s depression over leaving the Ecstasy Spa has overwhelmed their relationship and left her exhausted. She wants them to move on, but something keeps holding them back. Deep down she wonders if the man she fell in love with will ever return, or if he has left her for good.
Seth feels like a failure. He has no idea what Annabelle sees in him and wishes he could be the man she needs him to be. The harder he tries to mend their relationship, the worse things become, until something happens in Sapphire Falls that makes him stop being the man he thinks she wants and start acting more like himself.
