Loving her is a risk he can’t afford . . . and can’t resist.
When acclaimed Bible study author Genevieve Woodward receives an anonymous letter referencing her parents’ past, she returns to her hometown in the Blue Ridge mountains to chase down her family’s secret. However, it’s Genevieve’s own secret that catches up to her when Sam Turner, owner of an historic farm, uncovers the source of shame she’s worked so hard to hide.
Sam has embraced his sorrow, his isolation, and his identity as an outsider. He’s spent years carving out both career success and peace of mind. The last thing he wants is to rent the cottage on his property to a woman whose struggles stir his worst failure back to life. Yet, can he bear to turn her away right when she needs him most?
This was a wonderful story about a woman trying to be perfect and do everything she thinks she's supposed to, all while keeping a huge secret that could ruin it all. While I liked Genevieve and her confidence and flair, Sam seemed pretty much perfect, from his caring and caregiving to his cooking and loyalty. While he felt he'd messed up royally in the past, I felt that he'd done his best and shouldn't be beating himself up. Their romance was wonderful with many romantic moments. The secret Genevieve and her sister investigated was interesting, though I did figure it out. The spiritual aspect was great, too, as Gen's trying to find God again as she felt far away from him for a while. Sam's a Christian, too, so they have that in common. He had his own issues to work through. I liked the snippets we see of Gen, her sister and their friends' past trauma they survived together and I'm excited to follow their stories as well. While this was a wonderful romance, it dealt with a major issue but not in too heavy a way. I highly recommend this book!

When baker Penelope Quinn steps in to help her brother’s family through a medical crisis, she’s forced into close proximity with charming Air Force fighter pilot Eli Price.
Penelope has one iron-clad dating rule—she does not date airmen. Months ago, she relaxed her rule with Eli and immediately lived to regret it. After a long deployment, he’s now back in Misty River and, to her dismay, she finds him just as tempting as always.
Eli’s spent months thinking about funny, feisty, creative Penelope. He once leveraged his focus and drive to become a pilot, his childhood dream. Now he's set on leveraging that same focus and drive in order to convince Penelope to give him one more chance.
This romantic prequel novella introduces readers to the quaint mountain town of Misty River and a brand-new series from Christy-winning author Becky Wade!
