Promises Under The Peach Tree-Joanne Rock

Promises Under The Peach Tree
Joanne Rock
Harlequin SuperRomance, Sep 2 2014, $6.75
ISBN: 9780373608706

After her partner absconded with their funds leading to their bakery failing in New York, Nina Spencer returns home back to Heartache, Tennessee to be with her ailing beloved Gram; who raised her when her parents divorced each other and their only child.  Mack Finley rarely returns to Heartache, but left Nashville to help his siblings with the Harvest Festival with this year’s gala honoring his late dad who used to manage the annual event when he was the town mayor.

Over eight years ago when they were high school students, Nina and Mack were sweethearts, but their breakup was ugly.  When they meet for the first time in years, Nina and Mack know they still love each other.  However, both also fear the risk on their respective hearts if they take that repeat first leap of faith.

Though the second chance romance between Mack and Nina is the prime storyline, Promises Under The Peach Tree contains vigorous secondary plots involving health issues, diversity and a failing marriage.  Readers will appreciate this profound small-town Volunteer State drama.
