For Avery Montgomery, the devastation of losing her parents in a tragic accident has left her completely shattered. As she begins to pick up the pieces of her once perfect life, she uncovers a secret that will forever change her—she’s adopted!
In a search for answers, Avery ventures to Portland where she rents a room from Jonah, a quirky artist who quickly becomes her best friend. His house puts her in close proximity to the metaphysical shop run by her birth mother, the free-spirited Marianna Hutchins. Avery enters The Crystal Moon fully intending to confront Marianna, but instead she chickens out and inquires about a job. She's hired; yet remains leery about confessing her secret.
As Avery settles into town, she has an embarrassing encounter with Gabe, the incredibly attractive man who works a few doors down. Despite the awkward introduction, there is undeniable chemistry, but after a recent heartbreak all he’s looking for is friendship.
Everyone deserves a second chance. Will Avery get hers with a new family? Will Gabe allow himself a second chance at love? Will they embrace their new relationships, or will they simply decide to take a rain check?
V: Hey there, Gypsy! So happy to have you on my blog! How about you tell the people who you are, where you’re from, and what you’re about!
G: Thanks Victoria! I’m Gypsy Rae Choszer, author of the new adult novel Rain Check. I’m the lucky mom of three amazing boys, and married to my best friend. We all live in Arizona with our crazy dog Rosie and two chickens. We used to have four, but two of them mysteriously passed away. Rest in peace Hilda and Henry.

I’m pretty sure I didn’t even know I had arms to do anything with at that point of my life. Moving on. Do you have any authors/friends/family members that helped influence you to write? Who keeps you motivated in regards to your writing? Who was it that gave you the push you needed to start typing or writing away?
G: I have always been a writer. In high school I was a singer in a band and the drummer and myself would have epic lyric writing marathons. The lyrics were always super angsty and emo… basically, exactly what you might expect a couple of sixteen year olds to write. I may have to dig up some of our old albums and share the lyrics one of these days.
I have a lot of people in my life who encourage me; my husband and our families have been very supportive on this journey. Jennifer Miller is one of my very best friends and she has been an amazing support and cheerleader. She and I have been meeting for weekly writing dates for the last 1.5 years and I don’t think I could have come this far without her. She has been there to hold my hand at every turn and I am enormously bles
