#BookReview: Goodbye, Lark Lovejoy by Kris Clink

Synopsis: Lark's lost her husband, and the expiration date has come and gone on her fake-it-till-you-make-it "Happy Mommy Show." Healing her broken family requires drastic measures--like returning to her hometown in the Texas Hill Country. But she's going to need more than clean air and a pastoral landscape to rebuild a life for her and her young sons.

After years of putting off her dream of becoming a winemaker, Lark puts every cent into a failing vineyard, determined to work through her grief and make a brighter future for her children. The last thing she expects is to fall in love again. Especially not with Wyatt Gifford, an injured Army vet with a past of his own to conquer.

Coming home may not be the reset Lark imagined, but it does take her on a journey filled with humor and reconciliation--one that prepares her for a courageous comeback.
This title will be released on April 6, 2021. 


Rating:  5 Stars
My Review: This uplifting and inspirational read was beautiful. Another fabulous debut that I could not put down.  If you need a book about acceptance and love and life. Then check this one out.  I really love that authors are doing difficult topics and giving characters real flaws.  It just makes the story that much better.  I would love to have this one as a movie or tv show.
