Harper Lee Wilcox has been marking time in her hometown of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina since her husband, Noah Wilcox’s death, nearly five years earlier. With her son Ben turning five and living at home with her mother, Harper fights a growing restlessness, worried that moving on means leaving the memory of her husband behind.
Her best friend, Allison Teague, is dealing with struggles of her own. Her husband, a former SEAL that served with Noah, was injured while deployed and has come home physically healed but fighting PTSD. With three children under foot and unable to help her husband, Allison is at her wit’s end.
In an effort to reenergize her own life, Harper sees an opportunity to help not only Allison but a network of other military wives eager to support her idea of starting a string of coffee houses close to military bases around the country.
In her pursuit of her dream, Harper crosses paths with Bennett Caldwell, Noah’s best friend and SEAL brother. A man who has a promise to keep, entangling their lives in ways neither of them can foresee. As her business grows so does an unexpected relationship with Bennett. Can Harper let go of her grief and build a future with Bennett even as the man they both loved haunts their pasts?
I first heard of this book over on Clarissa’s Blog. I thought this book sounded really good so I figured I would share it for today’s Hump Day Hype. By the way this book is said to release February 5th!!
I’m a huge fan of war/military movies as well as books. Surprisingly I haven’t read a lot of war/military books. However, I would definitely like to read this one! It sounds like it’s right up my alley. It sounds like it’s a pretty cute book that’ll hit ya right in the feels….or maybe that’s just the vibe I’m getting from it. 😉
Also, I like the simplistic beauty of this cover…anyone else? Like it reminds me of a Nicholas Sparks book…hopefully it’s as good as one because I definitely want to read it.
