Lilly Paul felt like she was home the minute she set foot in Valley Ridge, New York. She originally came to town as a nurse to help take care of her friend’s dying sister but she decided to stay and start her own home care business. One of her first friends was Hank Bennington, the owner of the local diner and her landlord. She is distressed to see that Hank is beginning to show signs of dementia, maybe even Alzheimer’s. Hank’s grandson, Sebastian, is due home from military service soon; Lilly plans to make sure he takes Hank to the doctor. She didn’t anticipate the attraction she feels for Seb nor his hostility toward her when she broaches the subject of Hank’s illness.
Sebastian wanted to come home for his best friend’s wedding but not like this. His military career is over and an injury causes mental as well as physical pain. So imagine his reaction when he is accosted by a pretty little thing who tells him something is wrong with his grandfather and that she has become Hank’s business partner. The longer he is around Lilly however, the more he is sure that she is exactly the right person for him, if only he can convince her of that.
Award winning author Holly Jacobs delights us with her witty and compassionate writing in APRIL SHOWERS. Readers are immediately invested in the hero and heroine as they spar with each other, trying to discover if their love has a chance to thrive despite their trust issues. Set in the small town of Valley Ridge, APRIL SHOWERS is the second book in Holly Jacobs’s new A Valley Ridge Wedding series. It is a stand alone book but do not deprive yourself by missing out on the other two books in the trilogy. What could be better; good friends, a close caring community and romance all in one great read?!

Nicole learned at an early age not to depend on others but to take care of herself even if it meant running away. This self preservation trigger kicks in when she hears her employer being murdered. At first she hides and then she tries to run away from the police whom she has never been able to count on before, that is until she meets Detective Alex Donovan. Putting her safety in his hands is a big first step but can she trust her heart to this man as well?
Inspirational Suspense author Hope White cleverly crafts her opening pages of SAFE HARBOR, drawing in her readers then dramatically loosing a murderer amongst us leaving us cowering with her heroine, lost in memories of a cruel childhood. SAFE HARBOR is an absolutely absorbing read with great characters, although I wanted to shake some sense into the hero once or twice. Add a gorgeous lakeside setting and a gripping plot and once again readers are treated to another thrilling treat from the creative pen of Hope White.
