Someplace Familiar: A Laurel Cove Romance

By Teresa Tysinger


Artist Livy Johnson needs a fresh start. That's what a broken heart and forgotten dreams can do to a person. On little more than a whim, she reclaims her grandmother’s old mountain cottage in quaint Laurel Cove, North Carolina and vows to restore its original charm. When she literally collides with childhood friend, Jack Bowdon, Livy wonders if she’s back for an entirely different reason. Jack can’t believe his childhood crush is back. As the owner of Bowdon's Supplies, and once again the town's most eligible bachelor, he offers to help Livy with repairs. Together they embark on the project—and an undeniable whirlwind romance. But it’s not all smooth sailing. Can they survive the destructive pain of their pasts to discover God’s grace waiting to renovate their hearts?

Book Takeaway:

God's grace has the power to restore our lives to be full of hope, love, and new beginnings.

Why the author wrote this book:

My love of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina inspired me to write a story set it a quaint town among its hills and valleys. A central element in the book is the small cottage that Livy (heroine) vows to fix up and restore to its original charm. This cottage is based on my own childhood memories of my great grandmother's house. Thematically, I wanted to share with readers an example of how true love can come after heartbreak, disappointment, and bitterness. God's grace restores us just the same as Livy and Jack restore the cottage. Hope comes from this grace.
