THE WELCOME HOME GARDEN CLUB: A GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE WELCOME HOME 
GARDEN CLUB
A Twilight, Texas Novel
BY LORI WILDE
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The fourth book in New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde’s Twilight, Texas series, The Welcome Home Garden Club is a wonderfully poignant contemporary romance novel that captures the everyday magic of small-town life and love. Fans of Sherryl Woods, Susan Wiggs, Susan Mallery, and Debbie Macomber will treasure this love story about a Green Beret hero who returns to his home town with one goal in mind: to win back the heart of the girl he left behind.
Traditional meaning of Pink and White Roses: I love you still and always will.
Caitlyn Marsh stopped believing in happily-ever-after when high-school sweetheart, Gideon Garza, left for Iraq. Now she raises her small son while her matchmaking gardening club members drive her crazy. Then Caitlyn's world turns upside-down when Gideon swaggers back to Twilight.

Gideon had left town in the middle of night with threats ringing in his ears. A lot of things have changed since then. This bad boy-turned-Green Beret bears scars from the war, the timid girl he loved is an independent mother, and the father who refused to recognize his son in life has, in death, left him a vast cattle ranch.

He still aches for Caitlyn, and now there's a dark-haired boy who looks exactly like Gideon did at that age. Could the child be his? And can this war-weary soldier overcome the scars of the past to claim the family he so richly deserves?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A RITA® Award finalist and bestselling author of more than forty-five books, Lori Wilde is the recipient of the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award, the Holt Medallion, the Booksellers Best, the National Readers’ Choice Award, and numerous other honors. She lives in Weatherford, Texas, with her husband and a wide assortment of pets. 

READ AN EXCERPT:
Traditional meaning of striped carnations. So, sorry, I cannot be with you.

From the look of things, the good citizens of Twilight, Texas thought more of J. Foster Goodnight as a corpse than they had as a human being.

Numerous military-themed floral baskets and vases filled with white lilies, red roses, blue delphiniums and red and white striped carnations with blue bows, vied for space with the dressed-in-their-Sunday-best crowd spilling out of the stone pavilion overlooking the Brazos River. But no one cried, most speculated on the lavish contents of J. Foster will and quite a few shared a smile or two.

Caitlyn Marsh concurred.

In death, J. Foster had earned her floral shop more money than she made her entire last quarter. While in life, the grandfather of her only child had killed her high school sweetheart as surely as if he pulled the trigger.
