The Road to Rose Bend

Naima Simone. HQN, $9.99 mass market (400p) ISBN 978-1-335-50298-8
Simone (the WAGS series) delivers a grounded yet emotionally charged small-town romance in which a pregnant divorcée finds love with a widowed mayor. Grant writer Sydney Collins returns to her childhood hometown of Rose Bend, Mass., after her divorce, determined to give her unborn child the best possible life. Upon her arrival, Sydney bumps into her childhood best friend’s brother, newly elected mayor Cole Dennison, and attraction immediately sparks between them. But Cole is still reeling from the death of his wife and son two years earlier and is determined to fight his feelings—a task that proves difficult when Sydney rents a home on the Dennison family’s property. Close proximity and shared grief over the death of loved ones—Sydney lost her sister years before—solidifies their friendship. And when black sheep Sydney receives a less-than-warm welcome from the town at large, Cole’s kind nature leads him to step in as her savior. Small-town charm, a colorful cast, and a hero to root for give this romance its legs as it moves toward a hard-earned happily ever after. Cole and Sydney’s slow-burning romance is well worth the wait. Agent: Rachel Brooks, Bookends. (May)
