I pray each of you had a wonderful Christmas holiday! Now it’s time to look ahead to what our plans are for 2020! If one of those resolutions includes reading more books (mine actually involves reading less!), I’ve got a great one to get you started. And it releases January 1, 2020.
When a family crisis calls him back to Big Prairie, will Craig Erikson be able to work through past mistakes and a tragedy that had sent him searching for a new place to call home?
Brenna Blaum had been sure of three things in her life—her brother, her running, and her dad’s star receiver. But in a matter of a year’s time, everything she’d counted on fell apart, leaving her devastated. Seven years later, she’s stable again. She has a supportive boyfriend, fulfilling career, and close friends. She keeps her past heartache where it belongs—in her rearview mirror. Until the man who broke her heart finds his way back to Big Prairie.
Craig Erikson had it all—popularity, success, and the love of his high school coach’s daughter. But after a year of mistakes that ended in a tragic accident, he’d left Big Prairie—the place he’d thought to always call home—hoping that without his antagonizing presence, Brenna would be able to heal. Now his mother desperately needs him, as do two young boys in her care. Craig has little choice but to return for good.
Unsure that she can forgive him, Brenna does her best to avoid him. Irritated that she ignores him as if they’d never meant anything to each other, Craig becomes determined not to allow it.
Life in a small town forces their interaction, making them confront their unresolved issues and igniting emotions that have smoldered for seven years. As Craig and Brenna are pushed together, can they endure the hard places still littering their lives? If so, is it possible to find their way back to love and home again?

Today on my blog I’m sharing the first few lines from The Perfect Christmas by Bell Renshaw: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/12/26/first-line-friday-116/. I’m currently reading Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green so I’ll share a line from there.
“It was a lie, Meg had realized years ago, that the end of the war meant the end of suffering.”
Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with awesome reading time. ❤

This week on my blog I shared the first line from Isaiah’s Daughter by Mesu Andrews but I’m currently reading Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (18) here: “Dust clouded Nate’s steps as he sloughed through a southwest section of the burned district.” Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a happy new year!
