Cover Reveal: Magnolia Road by J. Lynn Bailey


One of my New Years blog resolutions is to cut down on the amount of promo stuff I sign up for as I went a bit overboard the latter half of this year and it got a bit draining. 
However, I read the blurb of this and had to share! It sounds so good... So, behold! 

The cover, blurb and a sneaky peak of J. Lynn Bailey's up-coming book, Magnolia Road!

There's a giveaway at the bottom too...


Releases January 29th!


On the outside, Bryce Hayes is satisfied with the structure of her life, her demanding career, and a series of no-strings-attached relationships, but her brother bounces in and out of rehab, her mother thinks she can beat her son’s addiction, and her father is simply doing what he can to keep a semblance of “normal”. When Bryce’s father, Congressman Hayes, orders her to Granite Harbor, Maine, due to a string of threats to their family coming from an unidentifiable source, she doesn’t expect Ethan Casey, the sexy soldier who slept with her, then walked out, without so much as a goodbye, to be her landlord.

Ethan’s past is riddled with chaos, bullets, and loud noise. After returning to his small town after the war, he’s determined to get back to his roots. Peace, quiet, and working as a game warden for the Maine Warden Service sounds right as rain. But with Bryce in Granite Harbor, staying in his house on Magnolia Road, Ethan can’t stop thinking about his future—and that includes Bryce. But to make things right with the love of his life, he’ll have to open old wounds…and risk losing her forever.



If silence had a name in this moment, it would be fear. Fear and darkness go together like smothered love—stifling, overbearing, and hard to overcome. But, right now, all I know is that I’d rather feel these things because I’m with Ethan. And I’ll do it the way he wants. If that means as friends or lovers because living without him doesn’t seem like a viable option. It’s not something I think I can do. The strong, willful, never-need-a-man woman that I am has somehow changed, turned. Flipped.

This situation could have been avoided. Maybe, if I had ignored Ethan that day in Los Angeles, ignored his long legs and his dark brown eyes and long eyelashes, the vein that runs the course of his left arm, his big hands, maybe this moment wouldn’t hurt so much, knowing it was the beginning of the end. Knowing I made a choice that would shatter my heart because what we did today wasn’t love. We didn’t make love. We didn’t share our deepest secrets.

We put bandages on our wounds.
I lick my lips before I put my mouth to his chest for a kiss. “I know this is the end, Ethan.”

J. Lynn Bailey has loved to write since she learned to read, around the second grade. When she isn't running after her children, watching COPS, or on the hunt for her next Laffy Taffy joke, you can probably find her holed up in her writing room feverishly working on her next book. She lives in Northern California with her family.

  9. J. Lynn Bailey did not only write about love in a romantic way, but the love one can have for a broken family and a small town. She touched subjects like family issues, PTSD, drugs, struggles, death and forgiveness. The style of her writing is easy and very engaging, making me feel Bryce was having a conversation with me. I recommend this book and I am looking forward to read more of Lynn's books.
