    Yes to Hometown Hope and it’s story with a child in need and a bookstore! Sounds great and what an adorable cover! Congrats on the new book Laurel!

  3. Myra Ball

    Hometown Hope sounds like a sweet book that isn’t just a romance but has depth and a devoted dad.

    • Hi, Vivian! Yes, books are very important to Jess, the little girl in the story! I could relate because I was a bookworm growing up myself! I hope you enjoy the story!

    I like the cover. The book shelf reminds me of when daughter arranged her books by color. It was really neat looking!

    • Julie, I’ve never thought about arranging books by color–that’s a neat idea! Until you mentioned it I hadn’t even noticed that on the cover! I may have to go rearrange my bookshelves now!

      • Carrie

        i’ve thought about doing that – because it’s so pretty – but then the logical side of me wonders how I’ll ever find a book when I want it lol
