Heath's Hope (The Brothers of Beauford Bend Book 5)

Alicia Hunter Pace

Romance / Contemporary / Fiction

From USA Today best-selling author Alicia Hunter Pace comes this emotional gem in the Beauford Bend series. Heath Beckett would have never moved his renowned stained glass business to the artisan boutique town of Beauford, Tennessee, if he'd thought there was any chance Hope MacKenzie would return there. Ambitious and career-minded Hope left him with a bleeding heart years ago when she couldn't fathom that his art would ever turn out to be more than a hobby. Now she's back because her family's bank needs her desperately. Although she reluctantly settles into a quiet life in her hometown, she's soon embraced by the knitting circle at a local shop, and Hope finally begins to understand the charms of small-town living: the neighbors who truly care for you and the slower pace that affords an appreciation of more simple joys. She steers clear of Heath, knowing she foolishly lost her chance with him long ago. But when she gives a personal loan to the women who own the local knitting shop without consulting Heath, who has helped them with their finances for years, the two must work together to ensure the ladies' business plan is in tip-top shape. Surely a man capable of creating such pure beauty has a heart that can forgive. But can he still love? Free knitting pattern inside!
