🎧Waiting For Willa by New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby is now available on Audio
From New York Times best-selling author Kristen Proby comes the newest installment in her beloved Big Sky series….
Max Hull left Cunningham Falls a long time ago. Thanks to his killer instincts and business smarts, he’s come back to town richer than anyone’s wildest imagination. Now, he’s closer to his family, living in his dream home, and at the top of his career – it sure looks like he has it all. All but one thing – and she’s not interested.
Willa Monroe and Max were childhood sweethearts. She daydreamed about their wedding day and named their children, but Max’s dreams were bigger than her. After high school, he left her behind without another word. Now, Willa is a single mother and a successful business owner, and the heartbreak of losing Max was a very long time ago. She’s moved on.
But when he walks into her shop and back into her life, suddenly, it feels like no time has passed at all. He’s as handsome as ever and more charming than she remembered. Once he makes friends with her son and turns his attention on her, how long will she be able to resist him? And does she really want to?
Sometimes, you do get a second chance at first love.
Max has loved Willa since they were teenagers however his dreams for the future had him leaving town while hers had her wanting to stay. He always knew that they were meant to be together but when he returned it was to find her married to his best friend and expecting his baby.
Willa has been a single mother to her nine year old son Alex and has created a good life for both of them. When Max re-appears in her life a decade after the death of her husband the chemistry and connection between them is stronger than ever but if they are to have a future together they must also heal from the past.
This is a romantic story about love, loss, family and healing. Max is the perfect mix of sweet and sexy while Willa is strong and resilient as they both help each other move on but never forget the loss they share. I listened to an audio copy of the book and enjoyed both the emotion and fun that emerged from the narrator’s performances.
Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two cats.
