Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! I have an upcoming new release for you today: Dancing in the Rain by Eileen Rife and Jennifer Slattery. It releases on 4 June 2018 and is currently available for pre-order for just $2.99!
It’s the premise of this book that first caught my attention: a young woman who was blinded in a car accident and the man who caused the accident coming together at a camp. I can’t wait to see how the story develops!
~ About the Book ~
On the verge of college graduation, Loni Parker seeks employment as a music teacher, but no one will hire her since she’s blind. Or so she thinks. To take her mind off her troubles, her roommate invites her to spring retreat at Camp Hope in the gorgeous North Carolina mountains. Unbeknown to Loni, Michael Ackerman, the director, is an ex-con responsible for the accident that caused her blindness. When Loni warms up to camp and wants to return as a summer counselor, Michael opposes the idea, which only makes Loni want to prove herself all the more. Though she doesn’t expect to fall for the guy. Still, her need for independence and dream of teaching win out, taking her far away from her beloved Camp Hope . . . and a certain director.
Camp director Michael Ackerman recognizes Lonie instantly and wants to avoid her at all costs. Yet, despite the guilt pushing him from her, a growing attraction draws him to the determined woman. She sees more with her heart than the average person does with his eyes. But her presence also dredges up a long-buried anger toward his alcoholic father that he’d just as soon keep hidden. When circumstances spin out of control, Michael is forced to face a past that may destroy his present.

The letter was probably one more rejection Loni could add to all the others crumpled in her trash.
Things can only get better, don’t you think?
