Review: Then Came You by Becky Wade

Then Came YouGet ready for a brand new series from Becky Wade with this free prequel novella. Don’t be fooled…this novella is packed full of angst, humor, and heart. It’s a peek into the life of a man who made some bad choices, struggled to overcome them, persevered, and eventually found love.

The way the author used letters, journal entries, phone calls, and notes as a way to see into the minds of the two main characters really enhanced the story. It worked so well! I also enjoyed that these characters had a lot to overcome. By the time Garner and Kathleen even met, Garner had experienced so much heartache and carried a hugely heave weight on his shoulders.

This was a story I could hardly set down! I definitely recommend it and I am very excited about the upcoming series!

Then Came You

A leather-bound journal. A single father. A woman in pursuit of freedom.

Garner Bradford, heir to the troubled Bradford Shipping empire, doesn’t know much about babies. But he’s going to have to learn fast because he’s just become a single father to his newborn daughter. As he confesses through his journal entries, he’s not entirely sure how to keep a newborn alive, whether or not he’ll ever patch together his shattered heart, or how to forgive himself for his mistakes.

Career girl Kathleen Burke is wholly uninterested in settling down. She has big dreams, and none of them include Garner and his small hometown in Washington State. Yet she can’t seem to get her handsome boss out of her head or her heart. There’s something extraordinarily tempting about his beautifully sad green eyes. . . .

Told through journal entries, phone conversations, and letters, Then Came You is a unique, heart-stirring romance novella by acclaimed author Becky Wade.

    I had to contain myself from squealing with glee when I read your post! I knew that Becky Wade had a new book scheduled to come out in May, but I had no idea she had a free prequel novella. I am going to download it tonight and start reading it.
