Can’t Miss Romance

I just finished Jill Weatherholt’s latest Love-inspired romance, A Home for Her Daughter. Jill hit home runs with the first few in this series and has done it again. If you love cozy G-rated fiction with believable characters and a HEA ending, grab this before it sells out.

Here’s the Amazon blurb:

One little girl could change her mom’s mind about love…

To give her daughter a brighter future…
she must leave the past behind.

Inheriting a house, money and a camp is the fresh start Janie Edmiston has been praying for. But the will stipulates Janie must work with her childhood friend—and crush—Drew Brenner, to get the camp running…or lose it all. The newly divorced mother and the widower aren’t looking for love, but sometimes it takes a child to show two broken hearts the way forward…together.

And here’s my review:

–a note about my reviews: I only review books I enjoyed. I need to be inspired to write. That’s why many of my reviews are 4/5 or 5/5

A Home for Her Daughter

by Jill Weatherholt


Single mother Jamie Edmiston, just out of an abusive marriage, starts her new life in the small town where she grew up, before her disastrous union. To her surprise, an old friend dies and leaves much of her estate to Jamie and childhood friend, Drew Brenner, a forest ranger and himself a widower who blames himself for the death of his wife and child. The catch is they must work together to open a summer camp by July 4th. To do this will require they spend lots of time together, focusing on the deadline, ignoring their past. But it’s not as simple as a tight schedule and an almost impossible timeline. Both of them have secrets they’re not willing to share and as partners, that’s a problem.

I’ve read almost all (all?) of Weatherholt’s cozy romances and can’t get enough of them. She has a way with words that says so much more than syllables and sentences. She tells a story that grabs your heart and pulls you right in.

Highly recommended for those who love dramatic stories with happy endings.

  4. Excellent review. I read and reviewed Jill’s book also. While I normally don’t read books that are simply romance, I find that I enjoy everyone of Jill’s books. She writes this genre so well! It turns out that her books of romance are not simple – there is always an important issue in there also. In this case the issue of spousal abuse and a woman reigniting her self-confidence.

  5. Hi Jacqui and Jill – sounds like a delightful read … especially given Jacqui’s review. Just not my sort of reading … and to prove the point … I even had to look up HEA – I must be sad! Take care and enjoy the weekend – Hilary
