Book Spotlight: Brush with Love by Lisa McKendrick

Brush with Love by Lisa McKendrick

Lana, a talented Ivy League artist, and Walt, a small-town farmer, couldn’t be more different. She arrives in Bluegill, Idaho, ready to spend the summer painting, excited to study under Walt’s grandpa, a brilliant but aging artist. The more she is thrown together with Walt though—and the more she spends time with him—the more she realizes her heart may be drawing up its own plans. As the weeks pass, Lana realizes she’ll have to choose between following her dreams or following her heart.

Excerpt:

“That’s what?”
“The kind of wedding you want.”
Ugh. What was the use of your best friend spilling a drink on a fairly handsome stranger if it didn’t make her forget your previous conversation? I scowled, telling her without words, Let’s not do this, and with a glare she shouted back, Oh, we’re doing this!”Fine,” I said, throwing my hands up. “What kind of wedding do I want?”
“You want to be a Disney bride! Bejeweled ball gown, Cinderella’s carriage, and his and hers mouse ears for the cake topper!”
“Not even close,” I said.
