Loving her is a risk he can’t afford . . . and can’t resist.

When acclaimed Bible study author Genevieve Woodward receives an anonymous letter referencing her parents’ past, she returns to her hometown in the Blue Ridge mountains to chase down her family’s secret. However, it’s Genevieve’s own secret that catches up to her when Sam Turner, owner of an historic farm, uncovers the source of shame she’s worked so hard to hide.

Sam has embraced his sorrow, his isolation, and his identity as an outsider. He’s spent years carving out both career success and peace of mind. The last thing he wants is to rent the cottage on his property to a woman whose struggles stir his worst failure back to life. Yet, can he bear to turn her away right when she needs him most?

My Review

Like Papa Bear in the Goldilocks story, Sam Turner had discovered a strange woman sleeping in the bed of a house he owned.
[Opening line of Stay With Me]

You simply cannot go wrong with a Becky Wade book. She is a masterful storyteller and I've enjoyed her books for years.

Stay With Me launches the Misty River romance series, with quiet and solitary Sam Turner finding a beautiful, peculiar intruder in his guesthouse. I felt their chemistry immediately, but it wasn't overdone. She is his polar opposite but despite wanting to keep his distance, feels a persistent pull toward her. Genevieve is dealing with a serious secret, a dependency on prescription pain medication, as well and trying to unearth secrets her parents may have buried. 

This is a spellbinding, begin-again story. It deals with hard and heavy subject matter--opioid addiction--yet softens the edges with God's guidance and grace. I love the way Genevieve's addiction is addressed, and how it doesn't overtake the deeper story of discovering and rediscovering our true path.

The story is the perfect blend of sweet romance, mystery, and discovery. The characters are easy to love, easy to connect with, and I can't wait to return to Misty River.

February 25th 2020

When baker Penelope Quinn steps in to help her brother’s family through a medical crisis, she’s forced into close proximity with charming Air Force fighter pilot Eli Price.

Penelope has one iron-clad dating rule—she does not date airmen. Months ago, she relaxed her rule with Eli and immediately lived to regret it. After a long deployment, he’s now back in Misty River and, to her dismay, she finds him just as tempting as always.

Eli’s spent months thinking about funny, feisty, creative Penelope. He once leveraged his focus and drive to become a pilot, his childhood dream. Now he's set on leveraging that same focus and drive in order to convince Penelope to give him one more chance.

This romantic prequel novella introduces readers to the quaint mountain town of Misty River and a brand-new series from Christy-winning author Becky Wade!

  1. I can only imagine the shock in finding someone in my guesthouse. This sounds like a great self-growth opportunity for both main characters in this book. I'd love to read it. I love Becky Wade books. Great cover as always.
