The Sale of Woodhouse Glass

by K.J. Watters

 

GENRE: Contemporary Romance (sweet)

BLURB:

“Touching and intelligent, The Sale of Woodhouse Glass isn’t your ordinary romance. Kali Woodhouse is a widowed mother-of-two who spends her days running her deceased husband’s business, Woodhouse Glass, and flirting with the town police officer, who is exactly right for her in every way. He’s certainly a better choice than the bad-boy, screw-up she’s known since childhood, and who just so happens to need a job and has the necessary skills for Woodhouse Glass.

 

“No, this isn’t the generic storyline you’ve seen before with flat characters who play their roles according to the formula. Watters eschews cliche and instead tells a touching story about love, loss, family, and finding happiness again after tragedy.”

 

-Author of “Someone Else’s Fairytale” E.M. Tippetts

 

~excerpt

 

Within half an hour, the lawyers had arrived with their paperwork and it was done. Kali and Spencer walked out side by side into the warm summer day, a sense of finality clinging to them.

 

“How do you feel, fancy suit-wearing business owner?”

 

“Excited. And sad.” Spencer stopped walking to turn and look at her. He pulled on his collar. “And hot.”

 

Kali laughed. “A mixed bag. Such is the life of the self-employed. I guess I’m off to the life of the unemployed for now.”

 

“You sure you don’t want to keep your job?” Spencer looked hopeful.

 

“Nah. No offense, but I sold it to get away from you, so that would kind of defeat the purpose.”

 

Spencer nodded with a good-natured chuckle. “Fair enough. But if you change your mind…”

 

Kali smiled sadly. They both knew that wasn’t going to happen, and they stood looking at each other for a moment, neither exactly sure how to walk way.

 

“Hey, um, give the kids a hug for me. I’m gonna miss ‘em. Would it be weird if I signed up to coach Ryder’s soccer team this year?” He wasn’t serious about the soccer, but she knew he would miss the kids. They would miss him, too. They already complained about not getting to see him much. Now they wouldn’t see him at all.

 

“Single thirty-something man with no children signs up to coach six-year-old soccer. Yeah…I’m thinking it might be weird.”

 

He laughed as he reached for her and pulled her into a tight embrace. It was the first time they had touched in weeks. “I’m gonna miss you, Kal.”

 

Kali rested her cheek against his silky tie and freshly pressed shirt. This was goodbye.

 

“I kind of hate you, Spencer.”

 

“I kind of hate myself, Kal. But I love you.” He didn’t let her go.

 

“I love you, too.”

 

When he finally released her, his eyes looked a little bit glossy, the way hers felt. He kissed her on the forehead and turned to walk to his truck, leaving her standing in the sunshine, not quite sure if she was supposed to feel relieved or heartbroken to have reached the end.

review2

A well written and touching tale of real life romance with all of its confusion and chaos. A widow with small children, a business left to her by her late husband and two men vying for a place in her heart.

This is full of realistic hurdles that everyday life throws at you. People who make real mistakes. People who are confused about real feelings. It doesn’t sweep you off your feet and into wedded bliss. It starts out with wedded bliss and knocks you for a loop.

As an independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock, I had to give this four full fangs for fantastic romance without the tiniest hint of sex. Some flirting, some hot and heavy kisses, yes. But mostly just good, clean, wholesome romance and family life. Perfect for any age! Real problems with real feelings that don’t always make sense or follow logic.

  1. thank you for the chance to win 🙂

  2. Thanks for featuring and reviewing my book!

  3. What books do you enjoy reading?

    • I read a pretty wide variety but do tend to read a lot of women’s fiction and classic lit. But I enjoy swapping thrillers with my dad and creative non-fiction as well. You?

  4. I enjoyed the post, thank you for sharing!

  5. Great excerpt, thank you.

  6. I enjoyed the excerpt and the review, sounds like a great read, thanks for sharing!

  7. Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?

    • Really, if I had the necessities, I could give up anything else for a day, easy peasy. Without my phone, I’d have no idea where I was supposed to be. And without my car, I’d be pretty stranded and my kids would miss school, but I could do either.

  8. Great excerpt! Sounds like an amazing book, thanks for sharing 🙂

  9. I have enjoyed learning about the book. Thanks for sharing it.
