Beloved bestselling author Beverly Jenkins introduced readers to the delightful town of Henry Adams and its unforgettable residents in Bring on the Blessings and returned for another visit in A Second Helping. Now she brings us back to the people we have grown to love in Something Old, Something New—this time for a long-awaited wedding that will live forever in our hearts! Already one of the premier names in African-American historical romance fiction and thrilling contemporary romantic suspense, Jenkins is a wonderfully versatile storyteller who enchants with this poignant, heartwarming, and funny tale about the joys and trials of a uniquely endearing community that fans of Kimberla Lawson Roby and Angela Benson will especially appreciate.
In Jenkins's delightful third Christian romance set in Henry Adams, Kans., a couple of high school sweethearts find their way back into each other's arms in middle age. Jenkins is a renowned proponent of foster parenting and adoption, and her protagonists are no different; before they reconnected, Trent July and Lily Fontaine both took in wayward boys, Amari and Devon, mischievous children who aren't sure they want to be brothers. When Trent and Lily reunite and decide to marry, everyone in the close-knit community of Henry Adams wants to help make the wedding day special, and with the support of Lily's wealthy boss, matriarch Bernadine Brown, and Rev. Paula Grant, a broad-minded Episcopalian minister, the lucky couple are well-bolstered to catch the curve balls that life keeps throwing their way. Jenkins's dialogue crackles, and the Scripture-infused story line will satisfy her many fans.
