My Thoughts:

Her Hidden Hope by Jill Lynn

About the book:

Asking for forgiveness is the hardest part…

She once trusted him with her heart…

but will she ever trust him with the truth?

With only two weeks to renovate her family’s Colorado B and B, struggling single mom Addie Ricci can’t turn away help. Especially not when it’s her handsome high school sweetheart, Evan Hawke, who’s offering to pitch in. As they repair the B and B, Addie and Evan also begin rebuilding their relationship…until a secret from their past threatens to bring it all crashing down.

  Her Hidden Hope

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed escaping into this story each evening! These characters quickly warmed my heart and I enjoyed getting to know them. I felt like I experienced the events right along side Addie and Evan. From the sweet rediscovery of a tender love story that began when Addie and Evan were teenagers and now as adults with more history and a perspective the love that grows is even deeper and more meaningful.

There are moments that gripped my heart and had me reaching for the tissues. But there were even more moments that had me smiling in contentment and laughing out loud at the fun antics of Sawyer & Belay.

When I started the book, I didn’t realize that this is the fourth book in the series. However, even without first reading the other books, I didn’t once feel lost. I do however want to go back and read the other stories from characters that I met in this story! I recommend this story and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

  Her Hidden Hope

Welcome, Jill! I am so glad you could join us today for a visit. Let’s start out with a few get-to-know-you questions and then talk about your new book.

Q:  What is your favorite season, and why?

Jill:  I love summer for numerous reasons. My birthday is in the summer, and I’m big on birthdays. 🙂 I also love the warmth and sunshine. We get a lot of snow in Colorado, but the trade off is our gorgeous summer nights. My family loves to sit by the fire outside and enjoy the weather and stars. I can’t wait for some warmer weather!

 

Q:  What is the best part of your day?

Jill:  I like the part of the evening when dinner is over and cleaned up, and it’s time to relax. I love a good soak in the tub or to just chill with my family and watch a movie.

Q:  What are some of your favorite CF reads from 10 years ago, or further?

Jill:  I enjoy Denise Hunter’s books, and I’ve been reading her for a looong time. I also love Redeeming Love. Just like with my writing, I do love a good romance. Kristen Heitzmann has a series called Diamond of the Rockies that I’ve read numerous times. It’s beautifully written.

Q:  If we took a peek at your “recently played” music, who would we find?

Jill:  I listen to waves or white noise while I write, so that’s what is usually on at home. In the car, I like Jackson Five or I’ll listen to whatever my kids like. I confess, I like teenager music. 🙂

Q:  What do you love about this story?

Jill:  It was so much fun to write Sawyer’s part of the story. He’s two and kind of a rascal. So basically a normal two year old boy. 🙂 I also enjoyed writing the connection between Sawyer and Belay (the dog on the front cover.)

Q:  Which character took you by surprise

Jill:  Evan took me by surprise, because I didn’t expect him to have as many issues with the past as he did. But he’s a sensitive guy even though his profession makes him tough on the outside.

Q:  What is something you hope readers will tell others about this story?

Jill:  I hope readers will tell someone that they laughed and maybe even cried. I love to experience emotion while I’m reading, and I hope they find the same.

Q:  What is something that didn’t make it into the final copy?

Jill:  Boy – it’s been so long since I wrote this story that I can’t remember what got cut. But, I did have to do a lot of re-writing and editing on this one, so I know plenty hit the cutting room floor. 🙂

Q:  What new story are you currently working on?

Jill:  I am working on the 6th and final book in the Colorado Grooms series. It’s yet to be titled. The next book out after Her Hidden Hope will be Raising Honor. That one is finished – Yay! Just one more to go! Thank you for having me!

Thank you, Jill for visiting with us today and chatting about your new book!
