About the Book

Good Gifts Title: Good Gifts 
Series: Brenner Falls #1 
Author: Kyle Hunter 
Publisher: Monceau Publishing 
Release Date: December 28, 2022 
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Nathan Chisholm’s high-pressure job in the big city is interrupted by an inheritance he doesn’t want, a struggling dinner theater. He returns to his hometown of Brenner Falls, Pennsylvania, so he can sell it fast and return to his normal life.

Leah Albright’s plans for her life went up in smoke and she’s forgotten how to dream. Instead, she spends her days at a dull job in Brenner Falls and her evenings with musical instruments and her cat. As holidays approach, she fakes cheer to stave off her disappointments. 

Nathan and Leah rekindle the friendship they had in high school and attraction brews. But Nathan’s leaving town once he sells the theater. And the residents of Brenner Falls, including Leah, don’t want their beloved historic theater sold. And certainly not to the developer who’s been lurking around. 

Nathan finds himself trapped by well-meaning decisions and growing feelings for Leah. He may have gone too far to turn back from the risks to his future and his heart.

Author Interview

Welcome, Kyle! Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and allowing my readers a chance to get to know you and your new book Good Gifts.

I like to start these interviews the same way, with something fun to break the ice. Can you share 5 random facts about you that we will not find in your bio?

Sure! 1) I’ve lived in 7 states and 2 foreign countries during my life. 2) I speak French fluently and go there every year. 3) I’ve had curly hair ALL my life. 4) I love cats! I was a mom to Oliver for 17 years (and my travel pen name is after him.) 5) In addition to writing, I have also had other professions: social worker, missionary, and language teacher (English in France and French in the US!)

When did you first discover you had a passion for writing?

I was 10 years old when I knew I wanted to write fiction. I wrote my first book when I was 11. I had many fits and starts after that, but began writing seriously in 2009.

What drew you to inspirational fiction?

I always loved reading, but as a Christian, the idea that a novel can be both entertaining and spiritually inspiring was a double win. As a Christian author, I can weave Biblical truths into stories which can inspire believers and plant seeds in nonbelievers (in a non-churchy way!)

Can you tell us a little bit more about Good Gifts?

  In Good Gifts, Nathan has left Brenner Falls, the small town where he grew up, escaping the shame he felt being abandoned by his dad. When he receives an inheritance from his uncle, he intends to return just long enough to sell it and go on with his life. He reconnects with his high school friend, Leah, who has her own issues from the past. It’s a story of growth and redemption…as well as romance and surprises. There is also a church plant in the story, which weaves an important thread through the story. (I have a soft spot for church plants, having done this on the mission field.)

What was the most challenging part of bringing this story to life? The most rewarding?

A theme involving an inheritance that is a building has been done many times, and I wanted this story to be unique in its approach. Hopefully, I was able to do that, in one way by making the “heir” the male in the story. It’s a romance, so both characters share points of view, but Nathan is the one who inherits and has to deal with those headaches while Leah has other challenges. The most rewarding part was the surprises at the end, and of course, the happy ending.

What do you hope readers will take away from the book?

The title, Good Gifts, struck me after I’d finished the first draft. I hope readers will see that God showers us with good gifts all the time and sometimes the gifts don’t look great at first, but he surprises us with them. His surprises are always good for us.

This is the first book in the new Brenner Falls series. What can we look forward to next in the series?

In the book, I mention briefly another character, a single mom, called Blair McCartney. The next story is hers. She is an aspiring fashion designer, but in order to raise her son, has to work in a clothing factory at a sewing machine. Her dreams rise far higher, though. She gets to know her new neighbor, Cooper, who returns to town struggling with the loss of his brother. Don’t worry, there will be good surprises in that story as well!

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. Before you go, where can readers follow along to see what’s coming next?
