About the Book
Los Angeles interior designer and former foster kid Kendall Green is in high demand, both for her impeccable eye and for her uncanny ability to uncover the provenance of any piece. But for all her success, skyrocketing costs have put her California home and her business in jeopardy. Then an unexpected inheritance provides a timely solution: a grandmother she never knew has left her a group of historic properties in a tiny Colorado town on the edge of ruin.
To young, untried mayor Gabriel Brandt, Jasper Lake is more than another small town―it’s the place that saved his life. Now, seeing the town slowly wither and die, he’s desperate to restore it to its former glory. Unfortunately, his vision is at odds with a local developer who wants to see the town razed and rebuilt as a summer resort. He’s sure that he can enlist the granddaughter of one of its most prominent former citizens to his cause―until he meets Kendall and realizes that not only does she know nothing of her own history, she has no interest in reviving a place that once abandoned her.
In order to save his beloved town, Gabe must first help Kendall unravel the truth of her own provenance―and Kendall must learn that in order to embrace the future, sometimes you have to start with the past.
In My Opinion
Carla Laureano moves from the city to the Colorado mountains in Provenance with a story that drew me and held me captive until the end.
Kendall’s career drives her, but her past keeps her from thriving in other areas of her life. When she inherits five homes in small-town Colorado, Kendall sees it as the way to save her business. But there is so much more than she expected in Jasper Lake. Determined to save the town, Gabe’s mission is to sway Kendall from selling the homes and the land.
This beautiful story of discovering God’s enduring love, home, and family is beautifully written against stunning settings. Laureano once again pens a captivating masterpiece that weaves romance, a little mystery, and truth throughout.
