--New York Times bestselling author Brenda Jackson



"[A] heartwarming story of love, community, and family....Bring on the Blessings is a tasty reading confection that you'll savor long after the story ends."

Filling her poignant and wonderful tale with a cast of endearingly eccentric characters--and setting it against the rich historical backdrop that has become her trademark--Jenkins ("A superstar" --Detroit Free Press) delights from page one.

Back cover copy

With the millions she received after divorcing her faithless tycoon husband, Bernadine Brown saved the historic town of Henry Adams, Kansas, from financial ruin and found loving homes for five needy children. Now there are other "projects" crying out for rescue.

If ever a town institution needed rescuing, it's the beloved Dog and Cow diner. Once it was Henry Adams's social center--or gossip central!--now it's in danger of becoming duct-tape central. But there are other distractions pulling Bernadine from the task at hand: a plethora of romantic entanglements, including her own with a disturbingly attractive Malachi July; a bitter young boy newly arrived in town with his widowed father; and a fugitive on the run with a six-hundred-pound pet pig that's wanted for murder (the pig, that is). And when Bernadine's philandering, troublemaking ex-husband rolls into town looking for a second chance, life in Henry Adams gets very interesting indeed.
