Wednesday's Favorites: Hope In Every Raindrop

Welcome to the Wednesday's Favorites post. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is 'Hope In Every Raindrop' by Wesley Banks, a book I read in June 2015.

The Book:
“Small towns have big stories.” That was a lesson Katie’s father taught her years ago. A lesson she’s taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story. Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.

Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isn’t interested in telling stories—especially not to a big-city girl who can’t seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyle’s world, doing everything but writing.

When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.

Praise for 'Hope In Every Raindrop':

You will be so drawn into the mystery and the human drama that you'll want to race through the novel.
Spend time with it, savor its flavor, pay attention to the beautifully painted details. Learn the lessons. Let it reach your heart.

The writing, the dogs and all their differences and the setting were the stand-outs for me. I will definitely be looking out for more work from Wesley Banks in the future :)

All in all, Hope In Every Raindrop is a stellar book that had me entertained throughout. I laughed, cried, fell in love and then felt satisfied because there was always hope!

There is definitely some very nice romance going on in this book. It’s a sweet romance, very enjoyable to read and it definitely makes you feel those butterflies. But the romance is not the most important part of this book. This book is much more about hope and trying to find a way in life. And it’s just a beautiful story, which I couldn’t get enough of.

Wesley recently moved from Florida to Oregon to get back to the great outdoors that he’s love so much. He lives with his wife Lindsey, and his two dogs Linkin and Story. Most of his time these days is spent writing, with as much rock climbing, hiking, or skiing as they can fit in.
