Is the sure thing worth risking for the possibility of maybe?

Charla Winthrop, a savvy business woman seeking a permanent lifestyle change in small-town Ruby, learns that things aren't always what they appear when she takes up residence in a house steeped in charm and a hint of mystery.

Rumor has it that Sam Packard the town carpenter is her go-to guy for home remodeling, but can Charla convince him to help her--with no strings attached, of course? Alone far too long, Sam's prayed that God would send him a wife and a mother for his daughters. However, the new Ruby resident is hardly what he imagined. A new place to call "home," the possibility of what might be, and the answer to someone's prayers unite this unlikely pair with the help of the town's residents.

Nestled in the Ozarks' hills and hollows is Ruby, Missouri, a quaint, cozy town where "neighbor" is merely another word for "friend." Ruby will charm and delight as will her quirky, lovable characters who will steal your heart, but hand it right back--with whipped cream and a cherry on top. Savor your new friends' sorrows and successes in the community where offbeat is perfect and mishaps and mayhem never tasted so good.

"Gentle, warm, and wise, Her Hope Discovered, by Cynthia Herron, is a perfect afternoon read that will renew your faith in the healing power of love. The lovely descriptions of the Ozarks, an honorable, swoon-worthy hero, and two adorable little girls in search of a mama drew me in and kept me reading. Her Hope Discovered is a faith-filled debut perfect for readers of sweet, small-town romance."
