Oh my goodness, y’all, it’s been so long since I wrote a book review. You probably thought I stopped reading, right? Not the case. But I’m discovering that it’s harder for me to read while in the midst of writing. Nowadays, a blurb’s got to really pull me in to pick it up. And Jill’s did, along with this adorable cover!
What’d I tell you? So stinking adorable, right?
Here’s the blurb:
Another roadblock…or the family she’s looking for? When single mom Faith Brennan discovers the Virginia inn she grew up in is for sale, she’s determined to make a bid. Even if that means going head-to-head with handsome real estate broker Joshua Carlson. But competing with Joshua would be a lot easier if Faith’s young daughter wasn’t growing so attached to him…and if Faith could stop picturing running the inn with Joshua by her side.
Raised in a household with an absentee dad, Joshua intends to buy the Inn his late mother adored, the one his father plans to auction. Yeah, I know, right? Talk about dysfunctional. Cue single mother Faith. She manages the Inn now, but has lived on the property since childhood. Buying the Inn will provide her and daughter Bella with a forever home and follow through with a dream she shared with her late husband. Both want the Inn for very strong reasons. Jill Weatherholt really knows how to ramp up the conflict!
This book has it all! A kind and handsome hero who wants to do the right thing. A feisty single mom who’s willing to fight for the security she craves for her and her daughter. An adorable little girl who speaks her mind and has her heart set on claiming Joshua as her daddy. A light, organic spiritual thread. Conflict that keeps ratcheting up, leaving you to wonder if Faith and Joshua would ever get their happily-ever-after. And just when you think the book’s drawing to a close, BOOM! Another obstacle! How could I stop turning pages?? I didn’t! lol.
What’s your favorite read so far this summer?
