Release Day Blitz with Review~ RESTORING HOPE by CP Smith

Title: Restoring Hope
Author: C.P. Smith

Release Date: July 22, 2014


Life throws you curve balls, but no parent should ever bury a child. Determined not to make the same mistakes with his son as he made with his daughter, Nic Beuve is single-minded until Hope walks into his life.

Hope Delaney, a woman with a past that almost broke her, tries to keep people at bay for their own protection. Fortunately for her, no one listens when she says she wants to be alone.

Burning desire, a deep need to protect, and a woman who looks like an angel breaks down Nic's defenses until he can’t ignore them. He wants Hope and what Nic wants…

Hope thinks she can walk away at any time she just wasn't counting on a man like Nic to get in the way, or a nosy but loving Cajun Boss. All's fair in love and war and what Maman Rose wants is Nic and Hope together.

Will their relationship survive an ex-wife with an agenda or will her past come between them... or kill them?

Rachel's 4 Star Review~
I really enjoyed Restoring Hope.  CP Smith knows how to tell a story.  From Nic and Hope to Maman Rose and Roscoe, her characters are well rounded, well described and well liked. There is so much going on amongst the "core" group of characters that it almost feels like the "family" is all together, the main set of characters.
The description of their surroundings make me feel like I can "see" New Orleans through their eyes.  From a sad tale to a resurgence of faith, to what could possibly be a great HEA, there are twists and turns, laughter and tears, a truly wonderful contemporary romance.  Nic, a man you could swoon for, and Hope, a girl you can be proud of, come together and relearn trust, companionship, love, and above all Hope for a brighter future.
A little blurb about A Reason to Breathe!
I'm just throwing in my 2 cents worth on this story real quick...
If you are looking for an Alpha Male, a kick-ass leading lady and an uproariously funny romance then A Reason to Breathe should definitely be on your 1click list!  This story has it all...romance, suspense, a super hot sounding alpha stud, a no holds barred I'll do it myself kinda girl, superb writing with laugh out loud parts.  All around excellent book! 
C.P. Smith is a mother of 5 and stay-at-home mom. The need for more stories featuring older couples is the driving force behind her writing. Love isn't just for the young; it's for everyone. A first kiss at 18 or 50 is still a first kiss--full of wonder and expectation.

Ms. Smith resides in Oklahoma with her kids, husband and 4 dogs.
