Author: Jennifer Van Wyk

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Small Town Romance

I’ve spent the last two decades putting my dreams on hold to raise my daughter.

But now opportunities arise that I can’t deny myself from going after. And a chance meeting with Carly only sweetens the deal.

She says she can only offer me friendship.
That she’s not capable of giving anything more than that.

If she thinks it will stop me from pursuing something more, she’s underestimated my level of patience when it comes to getting what I want.

When the secret she’s so carefully hidden threatens to destroy everything she’s built, I’ll stop at nothing to protect her and her son.

She’s built walls to protect herself, but I’ll break them down and get her to join me in a better place.

NICUnurse’s Review of A Better Place by Jennifer Van Wyk

Somehow, I managed to miss Jennifer Van Wyk’s first two books. But after finally reading From the Ground Up a couple of weeks ago, I simply had to read A Better Place. I can now proudly say, I’ve read, and adore, ALL of her words to date!

A Better Place is James and Carly’s story. We first met James in From the Ground Up. He’s Tess’s brother and saves the day when Barrett needs someone to watch the kids so he can sweep his wife off her feet once again. James has put his dreams on hold while he raised his daughter, Lily, as a single father. And he hasn’t regretted it for a moment. But now that Lily is nearly finished with college, it’s time for him to work on his dreams for his future. Carly fled an abusive marriage and has spent the last three years rebuilding herself and her life for her son, Jack. When the past rears its ugly head, can James be the superhero he needs to be and save the day?

NICUnurse’s Rating: Seriously…I’ve totally fallen in love with the way Jennifer Van Wyk tells a story. There’s a little bit of suspense, a lot of laugh out loud moments, some sexy moments, and some angsty moments. It’s like the best of all the worlds rolled into one great book each time. While I did adore James and Carly, their story didn’t resonate with me the way From the Ground Up did, but it was definitely a great read. It’s a standalone book, but I love that we get glimpses of everyone we came to love in previous books in these stories. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this author and her books. You simply can’t go wrong with any of them and A Better Place was no exception!

I give A Better Place by Jennifer Van Wyk 4.5 out of 5 propellers!



Check out the inspiration behind the books on Jennifer’s Pinterest Boards!

From the Ground Up is Jennifer’s first published novel, with the hopes of many more to come. Jennifer makes her home in rural Iowa with her high school sweetheart, three beautiful and amazing kids, one crazy Jack Russell terrier. This is where her love for all things reading, baking, and cooking happen. Jennifer’s family enjoys camping, boating, and spending time outside as much as possible. When she’s not writing or editing/proofreading manuscripts for the many talented authors she’s come to love, she’s sipping coffee or iced tea with her kindle in her lap or binging on Netflix.
