Hope in Every Raindrop by Wesley Banks Review

Welcome to my tour stop for Hope in Every Raindrop by 
Wesley Banks.
Hope in Every Raindrop by Wesley Banks is a clean new adult romance.
The tour runs from June 22nd to July 3rd.

“Small towns have big stories.” That was a lesson Katie’s father taught her years ago. A lesson she’s taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story. Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.

Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isn’t interested in telling stories—especially not to a big-city girl who can’t seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyle’s world, doing everything but writing.

When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.

The toss of a dart started Katie on a trip, not only from CA to S.C. looking for story inspiration, but also a trip to find more for herself and her future.
She finds herself thousands of miles outside of her comfort zone, the guest of strange (unknown) men and a pack of unusual dogs. She anticipated asking a million questions and observing. Instead, she finds herself doing unpaid manual labor. She doesn't understand how doing menial chores will give her a story.

The way the chapters flow gives enough information for the readers to follow the story and to be interested but leaves enough out to make the air of mystery all inclusive. 
Not to give away any spoilers but you won't regret having a tissue box nearby.
You will be so drawn into the mystery and the human drama that you'll want to race through the novel. 
Spend time with it, savor its flavor, pay attention to the beautifully painted details. Learn the lessons. Let it reach your heart.

I did receive this book in exchange for my honest review.
I will be looking for more from this author.

    BLURB: Faith in Every Footstep by Wesley Banks

    On the eve of one of mankind's toughest races, accompanied by thirteen of America's rarest dog breed, rookie musher Kyle Walker only has one thought in mind: win. Discovered in the lowlands of South Carolina, the Carolina grays have traveled over five thousand miles to face off in the 2003 Yukon Quest. But one dog stands above the rest—King.

    When an unexpected storm strikes, Kyle Walker and the reigning champion are forced to turn back. Stranded at the checkpoint, Kyle and his dogs find solace in a young veterinarian with auburn hair and keen green eyes—Jenna Maynor.

    In this storm another race is forming, one of an Inuit man racing to save his family. Presented with the choice to help, but at the risk of his and his dogs’ lives, Kyle Walker ventures into the unknown in search of a mom and two young daughters.

    The Yukon Quest was founded on the premise that a dog driver and his team should be a self-sufficient unit capable of challenging varied terrain and severe weather. But these conditions may prove to be too much, even for Kyle and King.
