Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Hometown Hope by Laurel Blount, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Hometown Hope
Author: Laurel Blount
Publisher: Love Inspired
Release Date: June 18, 2019 (print), July 1, 2019 (ebook)
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
He’ll do anything for his daughter…
Even fight to regain an old classmate’s broken trust.
In the three years since her mother’s death, widower Hoyt Bradley’s daughter, Jess, hasn’t spoken—until she suddenly begs him to save her favorite bookstore from closing.
Hoyt is desperate to hear his daughter’s voice again, but he and the bookstore’s pretty owner, Anna Delaney, share a less-than-friendly past.
Working together is complicated enough…but can they avoid falling in love?
What a good story! I could really feel the emotions that these characters were experiencing. I felt for Anna as she had some awkward and even some insensitive encounters with former classmates.
I also felt for Hoyt. He kept trying to do things to help Anna or make her feel better about the situation with her bookstore, but everything kept backfiring! It was just one thing after another!
Hoyt, Anna, and Jess were very enjoyable to read about and I liked the way the relationships developed between all three of them. I had not read the first two books in this series, yet I had no trouble reading Hometown Hope on its own.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
