A New Beginning in a Small Town
by Melinda Curtis

A gripping, small town romance about compassion, self-forgiveness, and starting over from USA Today Bestselling author Melinda Curtis.

"Reading Slade and Christine's story reminded me of why I enjoy romance. (This book) has found a place on my keeper shelf!" Brenda Novak, NYT & USA Today Bestselling author

She's moving forward with a clean slate.
Christine Alexander wants to prove herself as a top-notch winemaker, and in small town Harmony Valley she's got a chance to build something legitimate and lasting. If only part-owner Slade Jennings would quit poking his attractive nose in her cabernet.

He can't move on without shedding the baggage of his past.
Brooding, numbers guy Slade doesn't want to return to his small hometown, the place where his life fell apart, much less start a business or raise his young twin girls there. In Harmony Valley, the painful mistakes from his past are at risk of being revealed to his friends, the community, and the attractive winemaker who works for him.

Sometimes, the only way forward is the rocky journey through the tough parts.

Fans of movies like The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Manchester by the Sea will love this gripping, emotional, redemption romance with a happily-ever-after.

Melinda Curtis' Bio

Prior to writing romance, award-winning, USA Today bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat---otherwise known as the potty. After grabbing her pen (and a parachute) she made the jump to full-time writer. Between writing sweet romance for Harlequin and indie-pubbed sweet romantic comedy, Melinda finds time to relax with her husband over home remodeling projects. She recently came to grips with the fact that she's an empty nester and a grandma, concepts easier to grasp than jet-setting on a potty.
