Waiting On Wednesday: Of Literature and Lattes

January 8, 2020

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

January feels like a fresh start. It's a new year, a new month, and a new season, although it doesn't feel much like winter here, and I'm very sad. It's a roll of the dice if we get winter weather or not. Cold weather or not, it's always a good time to curl up with a book or start panning ahead for a new book. With the end of the year we look back, and the start of a new year we look forward. I know recently, I shared about the books I'm looking forward to in the first quarter of the year, so with today' Waiting On Wednesday, let's look a little further in the future!

Today I'm featuring an author who's books I've adored since her debut. Katherine Reay has such an amazing talent for writing. The emotional connections she creates is phenomenal. I am able to get caught up, not it just the story, but in the characters lives. They feel real and draw you in. Here characters are ones you can see yourself friends with, ones you can relate to.

With her new release in 2020, I'm so looking forward to jumping back into her writing to see where this story will take me.

About the Book:
Katherine Reay returns to the cozy and delightful town of Winsome where two people discover the grace of letting go and the joy found in unexpected change.

After fleeing her hometown three years earlier, Alyssa Harrison never planned to return. Then the Silicon Valley start-up she worked for collapsed and turned her world upside down. She is broke, under FBI investigation, and without a place to go. Having exhausted every option, she comes home to Winsome, Illinois, to regroup then move on as quickly as possible. Yet, as friends and family welcome her back, Alyssa begins to see a place for herself in this small Midwestern community.

Jeremy Mitchell moved from Seattle to Winsome to be near his daughter and to open the coffee shop he’s been dreaming of for years. Problem is, the business is bleeding money—and he’s not quite sure why. When he meets Alyssa, he senses an immediate connection, but what he needs most is someone to help him save his floundering business. After asking for her help, he wonders if something might grow between them—but forces beyond their control soon complicate their already complex lives, and the future they both hoped for is not at all what they anticipated.

With the help of Winsome’s small-town charm and quirky residents, Alyssa and Jeremy discover the beauty and romance of second chances.
