Most of you probably know Bodden’s work from her series, Hope Springs. There are eight Christian romance books in that well-reviewed series. In fact, I’m pretty sure it made her a USA Today Bestselling Author. So that’s a big deal!
(I want to say she’s WELS, if you’re curious.)
The scars on her face are nothing to the scars on her heart. But can God help her find healing―and love?
Eight years ago, Ava and Joseph had the perfect future planned—he would go to veterinary school, she would embark on a career with an exclusive modeling agency, and they’d eventually get married and have three dogs and four children. Until a terrible accident changed everything. Unwilling to believe they could still have a future, she made Joseph promise to leave and live out their dreams without her.
Joseph has never broken a promise to Ava. Until now. Because before he made that stupid promise to leave, they’d made each other another promise—one of forever. Now that he’s done with veterinary school, he’s determined to return to River Falls and show her that his promise still stands. That he loves her just the way she is.
But first he’ll have to find a way to crack the safe she’s erected around her heart. Fortunately, he has help: in the form of three lovable dogs, a special group of sick kids, and more than a few slices of pie. But will it be enough to convince Ava that their forever is worth fighting for? Or will he be left picking up the pieces―alone?
Sounds like a good read to me! 🙂 Keep up the great work, Valerie!
