BOOK REVIEW & RELEASE!!! ~ Can’t Stand The Rain by Kait Nolan

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Delaney Newell knows what it means to be powerless. Against the family who wouldn’t support her. Against the man she loved who betrayed her. Against the gossips who won’t let her forget it. But after years of struggling, she’s finally getting her life together.

Sean Murphy has spent years fighting forest fires. The former hotshot turned forester knows the growth that can sprout from unfathomable destruction. That’s what he sees in Delaney—someone who got leveled by life but didn’t stop growing. He’s spent the past several months watching the shy red-head blossom, and he really likes what he sees.

When Delaney is accused of a crime she didn’t commit, everyone is willing to believe the worst of her. Everyone except Sean. The woman he knows couldn’t possibly be behind the rash of fires that are keeping the volunteer fire department hopping. Someone is deliberately framing her. Will Delaney trust him enough to help her find the real culprit?

I am always glad for a trip back to Wishful. Over the years Kait Nolan has always made sure I had a good time, a few tears and some knee-shaking swooning. This time though in Can’t Stand The Rain, we got something a little edgier dealing with issues that make you take a second look at some of Wishful’s kind townsfolk.

Delaney was put through the wringer thanks to a scumbag ex. She lost her family and the support of her town but she persevered and held her head up high which instantly made me like her and root for her. She was strong through it all, when some of us (me) would have just blown up at Gina and given her what she had coming…again!

And Sean, well he is an absolutely perfect book boyfriend. He is kind and understanding and he doesn’t hold back the truth even when he knows it might not be what Delaney wanted to hear. Together Delaney & Sean’s was an interesting story to read. I had a good time as I usually do in Wishful and I look forward to the next one!
