Now onto today:) And I'm so excited about this book! Jill Kemerer's debut, Small Town Bachelor, is not only a wonderful read, but Jill's story to publication is a sweet journey of faith. She'll be here Monday to share it, but for now, here's the blurb on her book and we'll chat on the other side!

When Reed Hamilton arrives in Lake Endwell for a family wedding, he expects to do his part as best man then head back to the big city. But when a a tornado postpones the wedding, the town is in shambles and Reed is injured. Thankfully maid of honor Claire Sheffield offers him one of her cottages to recuperate in. Dedicated to her family and her dream job at the zoo, Claire is all about roots. She's this city slicker's opposite, yet as they help the town rebuild, Reed is captivated by her stunning looks and caring ways. He can't ask Claire to leave the life she loves for him, but he also can't imagine ever leaving her behind…

So does he? Ask her to leave? Guess you'll have to read it to see how everything works out:) And I have to say, I really loved this book.  It only has me waiting for her next in this series. Already this charming town feels like home. I loved Jill's characters, her flair for humor, and her ability to reel you straight into the heart of this book. She provided flawed and realistic leads with believable growth that was neither rushed nor held back. This provided for the perfect story pace that prevented you from wanting to set the book down. A wonderful debut with witty dialogue and unique characters, you'll definitely want to check this one out!

If you're in the Midwest like me, you can find Small Town Bachelor at your local Meijer, but it's also at Walmart stores too! And, of course, you can catch it on Amazon. And stop by Monday to meet Jill. She's another friend who's visiting during this year of focus on the word Masterpiece. She'll be sharing all about her personal faith journey and how trusting in God in ALL things helps us keep our focus on who we are in HIM, not in what we accomplish. 

Happy Friday, friends!
