by Heather Justesen

With a successful husband, a gorgeous home, and a growing family, Lily Drake has it all. But when the FBI shows up, she realizes her husband is not the man she thought he was.

Meanwhile, Lily's friend Curtis is about to be drafted by the NBA, but he suddenly feels pulled to find his birth family, and no one is prepared for what he'll discover. With so many obstacles in their way, Lily and Curtis must learn to rely on each other if they're ever going to find peace and learn to love again.

In this heartwarming family drama, Heather Justesen, author of The Ball's in Her Court, weaves a stirring story of hope. Reunite with your favorite characters and discover how determination, love, and faith can overcome even the toughest trials.

Rebound is not a sequel to Heather’s other book, The Ball’s In Her Court, but the storyline is a continuation of a story started in that book, so expect to see some familiar characters and family members.

After reading Ball's In Her Court I was anxious to read more about some of the character's and was thrilled when Heather asked me to read her newest story. I knew the story would be a good clean romance and would have plenty of action to keep me turning the pages. This is a story that you don't want to miss. It's about adoption, families, finding parents, trust, fraud, and moving on into the future. Everyone who loves a good romance will enjoy this story.
