A widower. A divorcee. A second chance.
Love Comes in the Mourning by Erin Bevan is available everywhere!
Recently divorced and down on her luck, Lesley DeLoach is determined to make a new life for herself. When she inherits her great aunt’s estate, Rosalyn Manor, her future seems to be heading in the right direction—until she sees the home’s crumbling skeleton.
Widower John Hambrice is barely keeping his construction company afloat and his children fed, so when he’s offered a job restoring the Rosalyn Manor he can’t turn it down. But the big city client with the high falutin lifestyle reminds him too much of the last time he was burned by big money.
As the summer temperatures rise, so does their attraction. He learns there’s more to the city girl than he expected, while she learns the country boy’s gruff exterior hides a heart of gold.
But each has lost so much in love already…is the chance of another broken heart worth the risk?

Sweet romance, deep emotion, and a bit of mystery are woven together in this unputdownable read. I loved all the layers in this story. Between the present and past they kept me glued to the pages. While the romance was definitely sweet and a bit of a slow build there were some pretty heavy emotions through out Lesley and John’s story giving it a new level of depth and really pulling you in.
I was rooting for Lesley the moment I met her. Starting over after a horrible divorce and finding her independence for the first time, along with being a genuinely sweet woman I found myself cheering her on nearly instantly. Her clumsiness and bubbly personality were night and day to the understandably broody John. John’s story is heartbreaking. A grieving single father just starting to move on after the loss of his wife he certainly wasn’t prepared for the feelings he had when Lesley came into town.
As these two both begin to heal, grow, and fall in love the truth behind Lesley’s mysterious aunt and the house she left behind slowly unravels with intriguing glimpses into the past that had me just as hooked as John and Lesley’s story did.
