Release Day Blitz - Restoring Hope By CP Smith

Title: Restoring Hope
Author: C.P. Smith

Release Date: July 22, 2014


Life throws you curve balls, but no parent should ever bury a child. Determined not to make the same mistakes with his son as he made with his daughter, Nic Beuve is single-minded until Hope walks into his life.

Hope Delaney, a woman with a past that almost broke her, tries to keep people at bay for their own protection. Fortunately for her, no one listens when she says she wants to be alone.

Burning desire, a deep need to protect, and a woman who looks like an angel breaks down Nic's defenses until he can’t ignore them. He wants Hope and what Nic wants…

Hope thinks she can walk away at any time she just wasn't counting on a man like Nic to get in the way, or a nosy but loving Cajun Boss. All's fair in love and war and what Maman Rose wants is Nic and Hope together.

Will their relationship survive an ex-wife with an agenda or will her past come between them... or kill them?

I fell in love with this story immediately. The characters and their situations grabbed me in the first chapter and never let go. This book has a little bit of everything. Love, loss, mystery and who doesn't love a crazy ex in the mix?! Along with a great message of survival and restoring yourself.
"...our life experiences make us who we are, mold us, shape our perspective and since you cant run from your past, you move forward."
Nic and Hope are both at raw spots in their lives when they meet. But their connection is adorable even though they are both hesitant to love again. The Louisiana setting is fun, warm and well... just perfect. Rose and Big Daddy (with their backwoods cajun accent and attitude) are two unforgettable characters.
4 ('tit ange) stars from me.... read it and you'll understand :)

Wow, this story had a bit of everything and it held your attention right from the beginning and you didn't want to put it down till you came to the end. I started this book late in the evening and might have gone to bed around 1:30 a.m. because I had to see how it ended.
When you meet Hope your heart goes out to her because you realize she's been through hell & back and is still not in the clear. Nic, as well is fighting his own personal demons that haunt him everyday and feeling responsible for his loss. When Nic & Hope lay eyes on each other there is an instant attraction and they both decide to resist it. Little do they realize, that when love & Rose get a hold of them, it's futile to resist it. We get to see the resistance on both of their parts, that is until Nic decides he's giving in but Hope continues to fight against their attraction. I must say when she finally allows herself to give in to happiness it's beautiful.
There is plenty of mystery, suspense, drama, a crazy ex and plenty of passion and the sex scenes were intensely scorching. I also realized now I need to practice my french again **fanning myself**.  C.P.Smith you have a new follower here and I can't wait to see what else you have in store for us!
~ Review by Kara
C.P. Smith is a mother of 5 and stay-at-home mom. The need for more stories featuring older couples is the driving force behind her writing. Love isn't just for the young; it's for everyone. A first kiss at 18 or 50 is still a first kiss--full of wonder and expectation.

Ms. Smith resides in Oklahoma with her kids, husband and 4 dogs.
