Wildflower Road.

A young widow is tempted to love again after her heartbreaking loss in this new Madison River Romance.

After her husband’s tragic death, Ryann Marie Ashcroft’s only remaining dream is to save her family’s struggling mountain resort. And the last person she wants to rely on is a brooding stranger with secrets of his own.

Nicknamed America’s rock-and-roll pastor, Shane Olson arrives in Montana after a viral video destroys his marriage, his ministry, and his reputation. Working side by side on the banks of the Madison River, he and Ryann get a second chance at love. But not everyone wants to see their happily ever after.

My Thoughts:

What a ride! If Janine Rosche has proven anything since her debut, it’s that she knows how to dive deep into heavier topics without making it feel like a Lifetime movie gone off the rails. There’s a delicate balance of humor, faith, hard subject matter, and plenty of swoon-worthy romance.

I knew from the moment I met Ryann that her story would break my heart and I wanted nothing but good things for her. It’s a battle and a half for her happy ending, and there were quite a few times when I wanted to shake her (and a few others . . . you’ll see when you read it), but the journey makes the ending all the more beautiful.

I loved seeing Robbie and Keira again! Robbie’s big brother moments were hilarious and endearing, and they reminded me of why I love him so much. But I especially loved the theme of redemption–of God’s ability to redeem our messes, our mistakes, and our seasons in ways that only He can.

Readers should be aware of the heavier subject matter as it can be potentially triggering, but Wildflower Road is a great addition to the series that fans of emotional contemporary romances will enjoy. It’s available now, friends!

I’m so grateful for a complimentary copy of this book from the author and publisher. All expressed opinions belong to me.

Book Boyfriend:

Shane. Y’all, I can’t even handle how much I love him. He’s wounded, but he has such a shepherd’s heart. His journey is beautifully done and I just wanted to hug him throughout the whole book. But Thomas also has my heart and I can’t wait to read his story next (Glory Falls releases in January)!
