    Just Down the Road (Harmony Series #4)Just Down the Road by Jodi Thomas

    Synopsis:
     

    Harmony, Texas, is a place where dreams are born. As the townspeople face unexpected endings and new beginnings, they also come face to face with themselves—and what’s most important in life…

     

    When Tinch Turner lost his wife, he gave up on living. Now he spends his nights brooding, boozing, and brawling. When one of his escapades lands him in the ER, he finds himself staring up at the beautiful new doctor in town. For the first time in years, he feels a spark, but Addison Spencer wants nothing to do with the unruly rancher—or any man for that matter. She’s only in Harmony four months, long enough for the trouble she left behind to be over. But then a vulnerable little boy barrels into both their lives, forcing them out of the past—and into a future where love is just down the road…

     

    In the meantime, as Reagan Truman grieves for her beloved uncle, she finds comfort in the makeshift family she’s made in Harmony—and in a new baby, the first born in the Wright Funeral Home in 45 years, proving to everyone that life does go on…

    He nodded and slipped off her lap.  As he raised his arms for the shirt, the doctor let the towel fall.  Tinch saw the bruises striped across the boy’s back and legs.  He thought for a moment that he might pass out.  The cruelty of the act slammed against a heart that Tinch would have sworn hadn’t beaten in three years.

    A bit of a painful teaser but it’s where I am in the book.  What are you reading?  What are you going to tease me with today?  I hope to see your post or teaser in my comments.  Have a great day!

    This book is on my Kindle, waiting patiently for me to get to it. Your teaser just moved it closer to the top of the TBR list.

    Now that is just sad! Both about the marks on the boy and that his heart was in that neglected state. If I know Jody, this is also a great hero!
