The award-winning author of Comfort Songs, Comfort Plans, and Comfort Foods digs into the life of single-mom Anna Weber, an appraiser who gives value to other people’s found treasures. On assignment to research a handwritten sheet of music, Anna helps a stranded motorist, only to discover she’s rescued retired NFL quarterback Jack Moses. His confidence and fascination for solving problems makes him impossible for Anna to ignore even as they both dart along separate deadlines to save the finances at an inner-city school. Little does Anna know that as she wrestles with secrets from her past and a suspicious approach to people, Jack is running too—dodging women, pro athletes, and a future with no definable end zone.
As a nemesis threatens Anna’s young daughters, these two unlikely partners discover that it’s in stepping back from years of self-sufficiency that Anna and Jack can find the best treasure of all: a series of sweet, second chances.
PRAISE & AWARDS
“Kimberly Fish’s Comfort books are wonderful, charming stories set in the Texas Hill Country. Fans of small towns family relationships will enjoy these feel-good books. Two thumbs up!” – Jan Moran, USA Today bestselling author of Seabreeze Inn.
Comfort Zone is a Literary Titan Gold Award winner and a Reader Views Bronze Award winner in romance. It was also a runner-up in the regional fiction category of the New England Book Festival awards.
I have now read and reviewed a few of this author’s books and I’m at the point where if her name is on it – I’m reading it. It is a wonderful find to read an author who can jump genres and maintain a level of excellence – Kimberly Fish does just that.
I love the small towns sprinkled into my adopted state of Texas, maybe because I grew up in a small town in New Jersey (not kidding) where everyone knows everyone but there are still pockets of secrets that can be revealed and everyone might not be the person you think they are. Comfort, Texas is all that and a bag of chips!
The main character Anna is a woman with a past trying to make a future. Once again the author plays the romance card in the background. It’s there tickling at your brain while you are thoroughly enjoying the wonderful story and characters. Anna has so much buttoned down and contained behind a steel façade until that first chink starts and then the wall and her world are tumbling fast. Can an ex-NFL playboy be the answer or just a thorn in her side? Well Jack Moses has also been through it all and thinks he knows exactly what he wants – but life (and LaDonna) have a different path for him.
This was a total page turner for me that I read quickly but wished it had taken longer. That’s the part the author always gets so right – the Comfort level (pun intended) of the town and the characters make it feel like home and this reader was not ready to leave.
Kimberly Fish has been a professional writer in marketing and media for over thirty years, with regular contributions to area newspapers and magazines. As an accidental historian, she wrote two novels, The Big Inch and Harmon General, both based on factual events in Longview, Texas that changed world history. Kimberly also offers a set of contemporary women’s fiction, based in the Texas Hill Country, that reveal her fascination with characters discovering their grit and sweet, second chances; all four of these novels have won distinguished awards.
