Overview

Beth Kincaid left her hot temper and unhappy childhood behind and created a life in the city free from untidy emotionalism, but even a tidy life has danger, especially when it falls apart.
In the midst of her personal disasters, Beth is called back to her hometown of Preston, a small town in southwestern Virginia, to settle her guardian’s estate. There, she runs smack into the mess she’d left behind a decade earlier: her alcoholic father, the long-ago sweetheart, Michael, and the poor opinion of almost everyone in town. As she sorts through her guardian’s possessions, Beth discovers that the woman who saved her and raised her had secrets, and the truths revealed begin to chip away at her self-imposed control.

Michael is warmly attentive and Stephen, her ex-fiancé, follows her to Preston to win her back, but it is the man she doesn’t know who could forever end Beth’s chance to build a better, truer life.

Meet the Author

Grace R. Greene writes women’s fiction with strong heroines always at its heart, and with romance and suspense threaded throughout. Vivid settings and quirky secondary characters round out the stories and there’s a happily-ever-after-ending—most of the time.
Grace is also an artist and photographer who loves houses and landscapes that ooze character. Eclectic is probably a good word to describe her. When she’s writing, all of these interests, past and present, show up on the page. But some things don’t change. In high school Grace wrote a story for the school publication and was told you weren’t allowed to kill the narrator. She has never accepted that, and in fact, still has trouble following THE RULES.
Rules or not, she’s been honored with a number of writing awards over the past year as a finalist in The Golden Pen, Linda Howard’s Award of Excellence, Fool For Love, and other contests.
A Virginia native, Grace lives in central Virginia with her husband of many years who also happens to be her biggest fan and supporter.

    Kincaid's Hope

    Another winner by Grace Greene. Suspense, romance, personal struggles in a wonderful setting of a small town in southern Virgina. The bits of the past, in the Craftsman homes and the '60s romance novel made it even better.

    Beth Kincaid endured an unhappy childhood and left the small tow

    Beth Kincaid endured an unhappy childhood and left the small town life to start over in the city. Her bottled up emotions from the past cause her to live the “tidy” life she thinks she wants to live—yet does not realize isn’t good for her emotional sanity. When a personal crisis ensues, she must return to her childhood home and all of the issues from the past overwhelm her and are a catalyst to bring necessary change to her life. She discovers secrets and learns the truth about the woman who raised her. These revelations unravel her tightly-bound emotions and move her forward into a life-changing journey.

    My review:

    I read Ms. Greene’s debut novel, Beach Rental, and enjoyed that book and was not disappointed with her second novel, Kincaid’s Hope. This is a unique modern-day romantic suspense novel, with eerie gothic tones—a well-played combination, expertly woven into the storyline. This was a different type of book from Ms. Greene’s debut; yet, not in the least disappointing. Rather, she rode the wave of excellent writing in her first novel with the same complex writing style which easily draws the reader in to these interesting characters’ lives.

    The characters were relatable and I enjoyed immersing myself into their story. Once I started reading, I had a hard time stopping at my self-imposed two chapters a night rule. I enjoy reading romantic suspense and loved the intense, suspenseful scenes woven into this novel. I highly recommend Kincaid’s Hope and look forward to reading more of Ms. Greene’s books.

    My Rating (Kincaid’s Hope): 5 Stars—Outstanding Fiction

    I'm the author and I love this book. I hope you will, too! What do I like best about it? The courage of the heroine, the setting that includes elements of towns I have loved, and Teddy, the cat. I'd like to know what you liked, so please leave a review and help others decide whether to take a chance on Kincaid's Hope. Thanks!

    It was OK - liked Beach Rental better

    I would like to have more depth from Beth the main character as felt she was blah and could have been deeper. I enjoyed Beach Rental better. In the midst of her personal disasters, Beth is called back to her hometown of Preston, a small town in southwestern Virginia, to settle her guardian's estate. There, she runs into the mess she left behind a decade earlier: her alcoholic father, the long-ago sweetheart, Michael, and the poor opinion of almost everyone in town. As she sorts through her guardians™s possessions, Beth discovers that the woman who saved her and raised her had secrets, and the truths revealed begin to chip away at her self-imposed control.
