Tuesday Treat: Home to River’s Edge Has Launched–Let’s Party!

We have two winners! Sandra Pride and Cindy McCarter, your names were drawn at random as the winners of my giveaway! I’ll be in touch with you! Thank you to Sandy, Cindy, and everyone who stopped by to help me celebrate Home to River’s Edge!


And to a lot of fanfare, I might add! I’m pretty much all over the interwebs today, which feels a little funny, but on the other hand, this is how we do book release in 2023. Home to River’s Edge is officially out–those of you who preordered should find it on your e-readers when you wake up this morning and anyone else who didn’t preorder can go to your favorite e-book retailer and get it. Print book lovers, give Amazon a couple days and it will be available in “real book” format or if you can’t wait another second, zip over Barnes & Noble and grab a print copy there.

ARC reviewers are already loving Jasmine Weaver and Elias Walker’s story:

“This is a story about healing emotional wounds. It’s also a story about letting go of the past, new beginnings, family, and second chances in life and love. A wonder start for this very promising series.” 

“I loved these two characters so much. They are well-developed and so realistic, with flaws and all. I enjoyed their families too. They loved to butt into their business, but they meant well! I enjoyed the way Jazz had resolution with her Washington “mess” but the choices she made for her future. Eli’s choices were great too. Just a great book all around!”

“I’m so in love with the town of River’s Edge. A month ago, I hadn’t even heard of this author and then I stumbled across The Valentine Wager and was completely hooked! I read everything. Nan Reinhardt is a fantastic author. I love her writing and the emotions that come with her story telling. I love the town and the people she’s created, and I was so excited to get my hands on an early copy of Home to River’s Edge. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.”

I’m beyond thrilled that these and other readers are falling in love with River’s Edge and the Weaver Sisters. Sure hope all of you will love them, too!

To celebrate, let’s do a giveaway, okay? I’ve got a couple of $10 Amazon gift cards for two lucky readers who comment below with the answer to this question: Can you go home again? I’ll draw a two winners at random on Friday morning, so lots of time to consider and comment. 

Home to River’s Edge

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?

  • Kathleen ODonnell

    I believe you can go home again. Congrats on this new release and series. It’s going to be a fantastic one.

  • Caroline

    Yes, home is always that safe, familiar haven. Most of us are fortunate to have had that. Just have to avoid Mum’s probing questions

  • Kimberly Field

    Congrats on your new release! I do believe you can go home again. I have considered it many times over the years and always feel like it is on the table. I know it wouldn’t be easy, but family does make it better.

  • Cindy McCarter

    Yes, you can go home again and start anew. Everyone is entitled to reinvent themselves and be happy! ♥️

  • Glenda M

    You can physically go back to the place you call(ed) home. However, you won’t be the same person who left and the people who stayed will have changed as well. It’s also likely that home itself will have grown and changed just like you have.

  • Debra Pruss

    Yes, you can go home again, but it will never be as it was before. My husband and I live in the house I grew up in. It is not the same as when I was a child, youth or young adult prior to getting married. I enjoyed your Launch Party on Tule. Happy book birthday. God bless you.

    • Nan

      Debra, thanks for coming by! Glad you could join us at the Launch Party! I’d say you’re right–even if you do live in the same house, it’s not the same because you aren’t the same. Hugs!

  • Kim

    I haven’t read this book yet, but it’s next on my reading list. For some people, I think they can go home again. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those people.

  • Sue Farmer

    I loved this book Nan. The new series will be wonderful. Now I want to go back and reread the other River’s Edge books. My parents both passed away many years ago and I have no siblings. I can visit cousins in other places to see family or I can visit my old hometown of Evanston, Illinois (45 minutes away) if I want to go down memory lane and see where I grew up and my old schools. So yes I can go home per se but it isn’t truly the same.

    • Nan

      So glad you enjoyed Jazz and Eli’s story, Sue! I hope you do go back and reread! You are right–it’s probably not the same. Hugs!

  • Joannie Sico

    I would like to think the answer would be always yes, however it may depend on the circumstances. If left on bad terms from one or both parties, it might not be so easy. Also, it would be really hard and someone would have to be the bigger person and swallow their pride or let go of a grudge, which could be hard for some people.

    • Arlene Arnold Reynolds

      Nan, I’m looking forward to reading this series.
      I did move back home, in a way. My husband and I bought our Shelby County home in 1974. Then, my mother wanted to be closer to the horse track in Shelbyville so she moved into our house and we moved back into her “home” in Warren Touwnship. Years later after a career that took us to Texas and North Carolina we moved back into our Shelby County home. Each time some things were the same but others very different. After being out of state for so many years coming home was hard. Indiana friends had made new circles of friends and we didn’t fit in anymore. We’ve had to build new friendship circles.

      • Nan

        Arlene…how good to have you stop by! We lived in Warren Township for 37 years–our Son even went to Warren, but it wasn’t the same as when we were there. I’m glad you made new friends–we’ve been doing that since we moved to the north side three years ago. It’s different, but good. Hope you enjoy the Weaver Sisters. Hugs and thanks for checking in!

  • Kathleen L Shaputis

    Home is where the heart is, and I believe you can “go home again” if only for the memories. I dream about childhood homes often, where each detail of the living room and kitchen is exactly how it was back then. My mom loved to move, not far, but many times. Drove my dad crazy. So I have a couple of “homes” where we seemed to have stayed a little longer than others. Funny, for my grandsons, they only remember this house. We’ve been here 23 years and it’s a warm feeling knowing they remember these rooms fondly.

    • Rhonda Gothier

      Yes I think you can go home again. Just have to accept the consequences if you did something unacceptable when you left. Home is home.

    • Nan

      Grandkids can get attached to the place they associate with grandparents. Our grandboy still calls our old house “The Christmas House” because when they came home at the holidays, they came there. I think he’s adapting to our new place though. Thanks, Kathleen!

  • Denise Buschmann

    Yes. You can go home again. Absolutely. If birds can go back to their nests, so can humans.

  • Meg

    Nan, I absolutely believe you cannot go home again. But, I also know from experience that my “belief” amounts to a hill of feathers in a fierce wind. My own mother (at 85) is happily immersed in a bi-coastal relationship with a man (boy!) she knew in high school. They visit their old haunts, reminisce, and then make new memories. And your books are most certainly convincing as well. So I’m answering with a definite “maybe?”

    • Nan

      Meg, I like your “maybe” and I’m inclined to agree. I think it depends on the people, don’t you? I love that your mom is immersed in a relationship with a guy she knew in school! That makes me smile.

    • Sandra Pride

      I can’t go to my childhood house, my mother moved away so many years ago. I have visited the town a few times, but so many of my dear friends have moved away. It is interesting that many of my school mates believe we were great friends. That’s ok, though, because it means the clicks have mellowed.

      • Nan

        Funny how that happens, eh, Sandra? I’ve “met” so many high school pals through social media that I never knew in high school and we’ve become friends when we weren’t in school. We do mellow as we age. Hugs and thanks!
