JustRead Tours Blog Tour: Reclaiming Hope in Wishing Bridge by Ruth Logan Herne

Reclaiming Hope JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Reclaiming Hope in Wishing Bridge by Ruth Logan Herne, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

Reclaiming Hope in Wishing Bridge Title: Reclaiming Hope in Wishing Bridge 
Series: Wishing Bridge #5 
Author: Ruth Logan Herne 
Publisher: Independently Published 
Release Date: October 22, 2022 
Genre: Women's Fiction with romantic elements (clean) 

She swore she'd never come back to Wishing Bridge. 

She needed nothing. No family. No links to a past that broke her heart. Heather Johnstone was successful in her own right, by her own actions. She'd built a pristine life and gave no one the right or opportunity to disrupt it, but then her father called... the one person who'd loved her. Who'd cared. 

And there was no other choice, it seemed. 

She'd go back and face a past that was now tragically changed and fairly unimportant, but that's the thing about growing up. You don't always know what's important until it's too late. 

Hank Reynolds had spent over a decade trying to inspire change. Change in a shrinking town adjacent to Wishing Bridge, and a school district that serviced several towns. Hank took his teaching and coaching seriously. Seriously enough to help no small number of kids find their way to success, but when a tragic flood takes a major toll on the little town of Hopewell, the aftermath stuns the surrounding communities with the loss of life and livelihood. Who can help? Who can help them re-establish the good old days in a place that had lost their grip on good a long time ago? 

Hank knows what the school needs the minute he sees Heather. Northeast Wyoming Central needs an administrator that puts kids first, all the time. Not just when it looks good for a photo op. And when his phone calls bring back more of their high school football teammates, Hank knows something else is happening... Coming back to Wishing Bridge isn't just good for the town and the schools... It's good for the prodigals. 

Because whoever said you can't go home again was wrong and Hank Reynolds intends to prove it, but when Heather's life takes a sudden turn, he realizes something else: sacrificial love means putting others first. Even if it's the person you love more than anyone else on the planet. 

Grab a cup of coffee, a Coke or a spot of tea and join the folks of Wishing Bridge, NY as they gather folks in to help, to love, to fix, to nurture... Welcome back to Wishing Bridge... where prayers and wishes mingle to make dreams come true.

I really enjoy books that have a "Small Town" setting. Reclaiming Hope in Wishing Bridge by Ruth Logan Herne is Book 5 in teh Wishing Bridge Series. I have had the honor of reading a couple other books in this series and I was excited to read this book. 

Heather Johnstone has had a wonderful life away from her Hometown of Wishing Bridge. She had swore she would never go back. Her Dad calls her asking her to come home and her Dad is the only one she would go home for. She returns to a life that has changed and once seemed unimportant. Hank Reynolds has lived in Hopewell, a small town next to Wishing Bridge, for many years. He has spent his years teaching and coaching in Hopewell. Tragedy strikes Hopewell when a flood devastes the little town and takes the life of a few residents. Hank sees Heather and feels she would be a good candidate to help run the Northeast Wyoming Central schools. Hank has proved many things in his lifetime, he is now wants to prove that coming home to Wishing Bridge is good for prodigals. Hank really has to make some choices when Heather's life takes a sudden turn. Will Hank be able to prove bringing prodigals home is a good thing? Will Heather stay in Wishing Bridge once she goes home? 

WOW,  the storyline captivated me from the first chapter. The 2 main characters, Heather and Hank, are both strong characters and they both have "something to prove". Hank is a caring guy and he has a heart for the kids. I also liked how he was supportive and helpful to Heather. The small town feel of the book really kept me engaged and I finished the book in 4hrs. I really enjoyed this book. I have read a couple other books in this series, and I must say this is probably my favorite from the series.  The book is good as a Stand alone novel. GREAT BOOK!
