Happy Friday!

This week I’m featuring another book I came home with from CFRR earlier this month 🙂

Leaving Oxford (Southern Hearts #1)

Amazon | Goodreads

I’ve had this one on my TBR for quite a while so I’m sincerely hoping that I get to dig into it very soon! Isn’t that cover art gorgeous too?!

About the Book:

Leaving Oxford: Christian Fiction~Faith, Humor, Romance, Southern Style

Escaping home to Oxford, Mississippi, seemed like a good idea. Until it wasn’t.

A year after a tragic accident in Los Angeles flipped her world upside down, advertising guru Sarah Beth LeClair is still hiding away in her charming hometown of Oxford, Mississippi. And she may well be stuck there forever. Suffering from panic attacks, she prays for healing. Instead, her answer comes in the form of an arrogant football coach and an ugly puppy.

Former celebrity college quarterback Jess McCoy dreamed of playing pro football. One freak hit destroyed his chances. Although he enjoys his work as the university’s offensive coordinator, his aspirations have shifted to coaching at the highest level. His plans of moving up are finally coming together—until he falls for a woman who won’t leave town.

As the deadline for Jess’s decision on his dream career looms, the bars around Sarah Beth’s heart only grow stronger. But it’s time to make a decision about leaving Oxford.

Praise for Leaving Oxford
“Southern humor and charm shine through in Leaving Oxford, with characters you’ll feel like you’ve always known and a theme eternally relevant.” – Misty M. Beller, Christian historical romance author.

  2. Happy Friday!

    This week on my blog I am sharing the first few lines from All Made Up by Kara Isaac. It’s such a fantastic novel. I highly recommend it. You can go to my post by clicking the link: https://tinyurl.com/Friday83. Currently, I am reading Weddings, Willows, and Revised Expectations by V. Joy Palmer. It’s really good. I’m on chapter seven, so I will share a line from there.

    “Don’t see me. Don’t see me. Don’t see me. ‘Courtney!’ Walk faster. Walk faster. Walk faster. ‘Courtney!’ Dallas yelled. ‘Please! We need to talk.’”

    Hope you have a blessed Easter weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤️📚
