Loving her is a risk he can’t afford . . . and can’t resist.
When acclaimed Bible study author Genevieve Woodward receives an anonymous letter referencing her parents’ past, she returns to her hometown in the Blue Ridge mountains to chase down her family’s secret. However, it’s Genevieve’s own secret that catches up to her when Sam Turner, owner of an historic farm, uncovers the source of shame she’s worked so hard to hide.
Sam has embraced his sorrow, his isolation, and his identity as an outsider. He’s spent years carving out both career success and peace of mind. The last thing he wants is to rent the cottage on his property to a woman whose struggles stir his worst failure back to life. Yet, can he bear to turn her away right when she needs him most?

When baker Penelope Quinn steps in to help her brother’s family through a medical crisis, she’s forced into close proximity with charming Air Force fighter pilot Eli Price.
Penelope has one iron-clad dating rule—she does not date airmen. Months ago, she relaxed her rule with Eli and immediately lived to regret it. After a long deployment, he’s now back in Misty River and, to her dismay, she finds him just as tempting as always.
Eli’s spent months thinking about funny, feisty, creative Penelope. He once leveraged his focus and drive to become a pilot, his childhood dream. Now he’s set on leveraging that same focus and drive in order to convince Penelope to give him one more chance.
This romantic prequel novella introduces readers to the quaint mountain town of Misty River and a brand-new series from Christy-winning author Becky Wade!

In My Opinion
We Christians like to appear as though we’ve got our lives together. That we don’t struggle with sin or wrestle with God. But we all do. And Becky Wade tackles that very issue in Stay with Me.
This story is about a heroine who is often in the spotlight praising and teaching about Jesus. But in the darkness, she’s lost and turning to things other than God to help her cope with life. At her lowest point, Genevieve meets Sam. A man who has also been broken by life and now lives his solitary life in protective mode.
I loved Sam and Gen because they are so real—courageously real—with each other. Yes, it takes Sam a little longer to open up to Gen, but it is her struggle that centers this story.
Wade delves into the toll that hiding from others and hiding from God takes on our relationships, or productivity, and our decisions. Stay with Me is an encouragement to live our lives out loud, to be honest and transparent with those people closest to us, to lean into the support God surrounds us with even when we are ashamed of our choices.
