Sunday Snippet: The Settling Back In Edition

It’s me again! Time for just a plain old Sunday Snippet since I’m back home from Hawaii and settling into normal Editor and Author Nan life. Laundry, a new editing gig, laundry, walking the ‘hood with neighbor Mary, reviewing copy edits on book 2 in the Weaver Sisters series,  writing…oh, and did I mention laundry?

I have a serious case of jet lag–feeling like I could sleep for a week, but I’m trying to get my circadian rhythms back to what they should be. Weird that I’m suffering jet lag from traveling across three time zones the same week that we here in the Midwest spring forward. My body has no idea what time it is.

This week, Husband turns another year older, so celebration will be in order, plus I’ll be getting deeper into promotion for the first Weaver Sisters trilogy book, Home to River’s Edge, which releases April 18 and is currently available for pre-order. Reviews from ARC readers are coming in and making my heart sing! Check this one out…

Another Gem from Nan Reinhardt

“The charm of River’s Edge never seems to fade even as we start into a third trilogy in this charming little town. Jasmine and Eli’s story was sweet and funny with just enough history to keep things interesting. This is the first time I’ve read a romance involving a Washington insider and I love how the book incorporated such a fraught topic in ways that enhanced Jasmine’s character. Another great cozy [read] that stands alone and works well with everything that came before.”

Watch here and on Facebook for announcements and fun around this book launch. Here’s the back cover blurb for Jasmine and Eli’s story:

She’s determined to start a new chapter, so why is she still drawn to a man from her past?

When Jasmine Weaver, the chief of staff to a powerful D.C. congresswoman, chose integrity, she didn’t anticipate ringing in the New Year disgraced, unemployed, and sleeping in her childhood bedroom. Now back in River’s Edge, Indiana, identical triplet Jazz has her sisters’ support while she plans her next steps. She agrees to lead the committee for their high school’s fifteenth reunion, never dreaming that her co-chair is the man who broke her teenage heart.

As the new CEO of Walker Construction, Elias Walker has taken the family business to new levels of success. He’s buried himself in work to ease the grief of losing his fiancé several years earlier and wants nothing more than to be a carpenter again. Elias grudgingly agrees to co-chair the high school’s reunion committee, but when Jazz Weaver blows into town, suddenly anything seems possible.

These high school sweethearts have lived half their lives apart. Can they reinvent themselves back in the town where it all began?

Sure hope you’re all looking forward to coming home to River’s Edge! I’m having the best time there! That’s all the news that fit to print right now… so have a great Sunday, my friends.
Gratitude for this week: amazing trip to Hawaii with Son; great to be home with Husband; my root canal is done except for the final restoration that happens in a couple of weeks; neighbor Mary and Husband cut back the pampas grass and cleaned up the gardens for spring while I was gone: daffodils are blooming: Sister PJ is doing well after a scary night in the ER with a heart attack–they put in a stent and she’s recovering nicely at the heart hospital. 
Stay well, Stay safe, be kind, and most of all, mes amies, stay grateful!
