Hello, readers and followers! Happy Wednesday. Welcome. As we do every Tuesday with Top Ten Tuesday (only now the popular meme is still on hiatus *sad face*), today we’re joining the “Waiting On” fun with Can’t Wait Wednesday. A meme we occasionally take part in.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released as well. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)
For today’s meme, we turn the spotlight on a novel that releases in the near future.
Our spotlight feature today? Courtney Walsh’s upcoming contemporary, which you may now is kind of my “jam” when it comes to reading preferences. This marks Courtney’s first novel with Waterfall after writing three (recent) books with Tyndale including Paper Hearts, Change of Heart and most recently, Just Look Up.
This one sounds darling, plus that cover is adorable (it’s a design that instantly makes one smile). As is always the case with a new novel from this author, I’m anticipating the release of Hometown Girl and the colorful entertainment, deep emotional topics, and romantic swoons it’s sure to provide.
Publisher: Waterfall Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Adult Fiction)
Publication Date: September 2017
Beth Whitaker isn’t supposed to be a small-town girl. She’s always dreamed of leaving Willow Grove, Illinois, for the big city, but she feels trapped, struggling to make up for a mistake that’s haunted her for years. Just when Beth is finally ready to break free, her sister impulsively buys a beloved but run-down farm on the outskirts of town, and she begs Beth to help with the restoration. Reluctantly, Beth agrees to help—and puts her own dreams on hold once again.
Drew Barlow hasn’t been back to Fairwind Farm since he was a boy, and he’s spent all these years trying to outrun the pain of a past he thought he buried long ago. When he learns that the owner has passed away, his heart knows it’s finally time to do the right thing. Returning to Willow Grove, Drew revisits the old farm, where he attempts to piece together his memories and the puzzle of the crime he witnessed so long ago.
Both on a journey to find peace, Beth and Drew are surprised when they begin to experience a restoration of their own. But when long-buried secrets break through the soil and the truth unfurls, will it threaten their budding relationship—and the very future of the farm? – Goodreads
