Sometimes the end of the road is just the beginning . . .
After the devastating loss of her twin brother, Hope Goodwin packs up her things and moves across the country for a fresh start. Arriving in Oceanside, Hope finds solace walking on the beach and teaching history at the local high school. Until she meets John Harrison and everything changes.
John, like Hope's twin brother, is ex-military, and after suffering an injury in the line of duty he is discharged and left to deal with his problems alone. Despite their personal struggles, Hope and John grow close, and their friendship blossoms into a love neither could have ever expected.
But as Hope and John begin to move forward in their new life together, secrets from the past resurface and put their relationship to the test. Will the couple find a way through together?
Perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Phillipa Ashley and Jenny Colgan, The Best Is Yet to Come is the most heart-warming and life-affirming story about new beginnings and finding love in unlikely places.
Fan favorite Macomber (It's Better This Way) brings sweetness and sensitivity to this weighty military family romance. After teacher Hope Goodwin's beloved twin, Hunter, dies in Afghanistan, Hope escapes her native California for a small coastal town in Washington State. While volunteering at a local animal shelter, Hope meets John "Cade" Lincoln Jr., an Army veteran himself mourning the overseas deaths of his two closest friends. After a bar fight, Cade is taking anger management classes and fulfilling his court mandated community service at the shelter. Cade's immediately struck by Hope's patience with an abused and aggressive dog, and the pair forge a close relationship over the course of their service. But before they can imagine a future together, they both must face their pasts. Macomber gracefully deals with the harsh realities of grief; it's easy to empathize with her struggling protagonists, and though their relationship is realistically rocky, readers will have no trouble rooting for their happy ending. The result is a deeply moving contemporary. Agent: Theresa Park, Park & Fine.
