We're thrilled to be hosting author Linn Stepp again! Linn is the author of the popular Smoky Mountain Series. The Smoky Mountain Series is a linked series of upbeat, sentimental contemporary romance novels. Each novel is set in a different area of the Smoky Mountains so that the reader gets to experience a visit to a new area of the Smokies along with the rich pleasure of a good Southern story about memorable characters. Familiar characters and places tie the stories together in an enjoyable way for readers who like a series they can settle into.
The 5th book in the series is Second Hand Rose. Life is sometimes hard for a widowed, single mother with three young children, a business to run, bills to meet, and debts to pay. Despite it all, Rosalyn McCreary tries to count her blessings. She cherishes her shop, Second Hand Rose, her family, and her friends. A practical woman by necessity, she seldom indulges in impulse and fancy except for that crazy spring day she danced with a total stranger she d never met. Whatever was she thinking? And to learn later that her mystery stranger, Kendrick Lanier, planned to move to Wear's Valley. Great. Just one more problem she doesn t need.
Despite Rosalyn's efforts to crowd him out, Kendrick soon pursues her, finding ways into her life and the lives of her children and creating complications Rosalyn simply doesn't want to deal with. Especially since the more she learns of the man's life and secrets, the more she realizes how ill-suited they are.
Given Rosalyn and Kendrick's troubled pasts and Rosalyn's temper, readers will find it a toss-up whether these two stubborn, determined individuals should or shouldn't ever get together.
We hope to see you soon,
