Cozy Christian Romance from Jill Weatherholt

I think I’m one of Jill Weatherholt’s earliest fans. At least, I’ve read and loved every one of her books. Her characters are always likeable, well-developed, with problems I can learn from. Her plots are thorny but solvable with an upbeat HEA ending. They might be classified as Christian Romance, but with a light touch, or a cozy because it avoids those twitchy topics (see, I can’t even write them here!). 

Her latest book, Searching for Home, was published last week, but I got a sneak peek of it earlier. It brought joy to my holidays and I now await the next:

Searching for Home

by Jill Weatherholt

In Jill Weatherholt’s sixth in the Love Inspired series, Searching for Home, Meg Brennan is struggling to raise her sister’s abandoned triplets while running a B&B and her own physical therapy business. To make life more complicated, she still can’t move beyond the loss of her HS boyfriend and only true love, Luke Beckett, who left unexpectedly to pursue a career in rodeo. He becomes a star and every girl’s heart-throb. Meg assumes he’s out of her life, living in a glitter-filled world of fame, girls, and money, when he shows up at her B&B looking for a quiet getaway and a doctor to heal his rodeo injuries. This reunion surprises both of them but might have been just an unexpected encounter except that Luke falls in love with Meg’s adopted triplets. You’ll have to read the book to see the clever twists that take this story to its satisfying end.

If you’d like a heart-warming, uplifting, positive book to start the new year, this is it.

  6. Hi Jacqui, great story and seems very precious!

    I should have been sleeping the last few hours but then I just wrote a long comment that got into some twists and my little bit off the wall corny; but, tired as I am I decided to share a couple of excerpts here if that is OK, I hope!

    “Losing sleep, and having some “barrel laughs” about it anyway, must have a bit of monkey in my blood; there is that “Great Attitude” kicking in again, right! I can be such a fool for laughs, even and more likely when they are on me, yup a real clown!!! There is an old movie I think “Nobody’s Fool;” they should have met me; before making that story!!!”

    “So now I can try to fall back to sleep and maybe dream of something funny like some Geckos looking at me from my ceiling as I try catching some Z’s, not Geckos! Actually I better not try there aren’t any around here; and so I’d be seeing things and that could spell trouble, as in I must be sleep walking or drunk, and seeing as I’m not a drinker, then it would have to be sleep walking! So that’s what this is actually, all a figment of my imagination, and I’m not sitting here, I’m still tucked into my bed; copping a bunch of Z’s! OK before I start hearing me snoring; I better bounce, no not off the ceiling, I hope! Getting slap happy here!!! As the tired sinks in; there are happy drunks and then there is me, just a happy tired dude, too tired to be anything else But!”

    Oh well now you know I’m tired and goofy!
    God bless!
