$25 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway – GALLAGHER'S HOPE – Book Blast


Another Book Blast Hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer


by MK McClintock 

She sought a new beginning.
He sought what he didn’t know was missing.
Together they would discover hope in unlikely places.
Isabelle Rousseu must escape New Orleans and the
memory of her family’s tragic loss. With her younger brother in tow, she
accepts a position as the new schoolteacher in Briarwood, Montana. Desperate to
keep what’s left of her family together, Isabelle joins her life with a
stranger only to discover that trust and hope go hand in hand.
Gabriel Gallagher lived each day as it came believing
he had everything he could possibly want…until a determined woman and her
brother arrive with a little luggage and a lot of secrets.
It will take a
drastic choice to protect her and give them both, hope for the future.


Nothing existed of the life she had known.
Her slender arm wrapped around the little boy’s shoulder and pulled him
closer to his side. She could feel his slight trembling and wished more than anything that she could take
away his sadness. They were alone in the world. They had each other, and
she prayed that would be enough for them both.
They stood and listened as the priest gave the final blessing, and two
men lowered the caskets into the ground. The few other mourners who had
been kind enough to attend the funeral asked her to leave with them, but
she needed the closure. She needed her eyes to see what her heart
refused to accept. ”An unfortunate affair,” everyone called the incident
for it wasn’t every day that a man murdered his wife and then shot
himself. Isabelle wished not to think on the possible reasons why, but
she couldn’t seem to help herself. She never imagined her family to be
anything but happy. Their father’s death, however, revealed the truth.
No one spoke of it with them of course, but the lawyer had made the
situation quite clear.
They were penniless.
“You promised
Gabriel, you promised!”
Gabriel wasn’t a
light sleeper. In fact it often took a great deal to wake him from a pleasant
slumber and last night had been one heck of a night’s sleep. He enjoyed waking
with Isabelle in the room. What he didn’t enjoy was being yelled at and falsely
accused before he’d even had his first cup of coffee. Her words though, did
enough to bring him about.
“Criminy, Isabelle
it’s too early for yelling and I didn’t break my promise.” Gabriel moved around
the side of the bed until he located his boots and slipped them on. His happy
memories of holding her in his arms the night before were quickly replaced by
anger and irritation.
“What do you call
waking up next to me then Gabriel?”
you’ll take a good look at yourself, and me for that matter, you’ll see we’re
both fully dressed. More’s the pity.”
