Product Description

Daughter of the town drunk, Vienne Kenney has escaped Clayburn for law school in California. But after failing the bar exam-twice-she is back home with her tail between her legs, managing Latte-dah, the Clayburn cafe turned upscale coffee shop. Jackson Linder runs the art gallery across the street and Vienne has had her eye on him since she was a skinny seventh grader and he was the hunky high school lifeguard who did not know she existed. Now it is his turn to fall for her and suddenly Clayburn seems like a pretty nice place to be...until Vienne discovers that Jack is fresh out of rehab and still struggling with the same addiction that ultimately killed her father.

Publisher's Description

Eight years ago, Vienne Kenney moved away from Clayburn and all its gossip to pursue a law degree in California. But now she has failed the bar exam again. Is she destined to be stuck forever, a failure -- just like her father -- in this two-horse Kansas town?

Nine months ago, Jackson Linder left Clayburn with no explanation to anybody. Now he, too, is back. He isn't sure he's ready to face the rumors and well-meaning questions of the town's busybodies. Yet he's determined, once more, to make his art gallery a success -- in spite of the secret that haunts him every day....

Leaving November by Deborah Raney proves that no matter how deeply buried, past mistakes tend to catch up with us at some point. For Vienne Kenney and Jackson Linder that time is now.

Leaving November is Raney’s second Clayburn novel that explores issues of regret and addiction, while also revealing the redemption of Christ’s love. As Vienne attempts to juggle owning a café and being back in her hometown after law school troubles, Jackson deals with the long-term effects of alcoholism. Will they be able to overcome their pasts in order to live in the present?

Winner of the RITA award, the HOLT Medallion, and the National Readers’ Choice Award, Deborah Raney grants fans another small-town romance that is sure to please many readers. The book includes somewhat believable characters, who are both honest and lovable, and an inviting world in which they live. The vulnerabilities of people who both fail and succeed, gain and lose love, work and play, presents a more realistic image of modern day Christians making an effort to lead a righteous life, even with sinful tendencies. However, with a predictable plot and no dynamic climax, Leaving November may lose some readers’ interest. It is a slow paced book that is purposely character driven rather than plot driven. It focuses more on the development of Vienne and Jackson rather than on the success of the café or the fulfillment of the dream to gain a law degee.

Readers might not like every aspect of the book, but with the help of some intriguing back-stories, a realistic romance, and an easy-to-picture café, the hope that shines through in the end is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face. -- Amy Nickerson www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
