Something treasured then lost can’t be replaced, but a resilient heart can heal allowing for new possibilities.


She’s the one! From the day Michael Jarrid runs Annie Brekke off the ski trail, her feisty rebuke sparks his interest. Despite coming from very different backgrounds, his blue-collar Wisconsin and hers Manhattan silver spoon, an unlikely romance ignites. Her playfulness perfectly complements his serious side.

Their wedding date is set. Mike’s hell-bent on completing his final year of college when a surprise pregnancy, then miscarriage brings it all to a screeching halt. The gleam temporarily vanishes from Annie’s eyes. They manage to stumble through the painful experience, yet a longing lingers under the surface. Determined to live out the life they’ve envisioned, they forge on.

Mike starts his job where an attractive, flirty, coworker has him in her sights. But the greatest test comes at what should be the most joyous time of their lives. What happens when a heart shatters? Pure grit, courage, and love are needed to survive the unfathomable.

The trouble with trust is once it’s broken, it changes who you are and who you will become—forever.

If Michael Jarrid thinks the worst has happened when his parents don’t believe him over his pregnant ex-girlfriend’s lie, he is wrong. Feeling alone, he pours all of his heart and soul into a new relationship. What Lacey does to him is even worse … Now he doesn’t even trust himself. Is his life salvageable?

“The author’s colorful descriptions and all-too-common scenes of teen conflicts kept the story interesting for me. A good choice for young adult readers, or “grownups” who want to relive their memories of transitioning from teen to adult.” -Amazon Reader

“Jean Baxter has mastered story telling with this first novel. Salvageable weaves the tale of a young man at odds with his doubting parents as he begins his adult life. Mike is accused of fathering a former girlfriend’s child and, despite denying it, is chastised. He turns to the arms of another woman and, before the story ends, finds redemption. I’d rather not reveal too much of the plot, but Jean Baxter keeps the reader enthralled as the main character bumps head with authority on his road to salvaging his life.

“Salvageable is a good foray into the young adult genre for Jean Baxter, and I would think it falls into the category of a must read for young men. Well done!” Goodreads Reader

“I loved this book! The descriptive language and contemporary theme made it interesting, as each chapter of the story made me want to read the next chapter.” -READER
