In one word, wow by Shannon Richard.  Right of the first page I fell in love with Brendan King. Beware ladies this is not your average hot mechanic. Brendan is everything Paige has been looking for when it comes to love. This also scares her for the feelings she has for this guy. Shannon Richard created these two characters that are so in tune with each other the chemistry between them is hotter than ever. I loved that Brendan is kind, gentle and definitely a true romantic which made this reader fall in love with Shannon’s book. Definitely highly recommended and can’t wait for more of the Country Roads series especially if the men are like Brendan King.

Monica Appleby is a wild child. She’s never been a child, teenager or a normal average woman. Her whole life has been centered on maintaining a wild reputation. She is a woman scared of love, a woman trying to be normal after so many years being associated well to her mother. She has a chance to make her life right yet it involves a murder. Not just any murder but one in a little town called Bishop, Arkansas where years ago a child’s life changed drastically. Can she finally write the book that will set her life free?

As a mayor it is one man’s duty to make sure his town thrives on prosperity, wealth and well to grow. That is not the case for Mayor Jackson Davies of Bishop, Arkansas. He is a mayor all one on an island of his own. Jackson Davies is tired of working hard to make his town prosper and grow. Most of all he is just tired of people hating him, his sister and the one woman who has sparked life in him wreaking havoc with his state of mind. Monica Appleby and her mission to write an autobiography same time is making him see that maybe just maybe she is the one to change his life. Just when he thinks he’s got the answer to making Bishop popular Monica does the unthinkable, starts to love him. Can he get his life back to normal before the wild child influences him?

Molly O’Keefe latest is one that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved that here is a man, Jackson Davies, doing everything he can for a town he feels is a burden and the wild child herself, Monica Appleby turning his life upside down and the whole town.  Molly O’Keefe did a great job in showing us that one woman’s reputation might lead her to a life of unsavory ethics but it takes one good man like Jackson to make her see sometimes being wild might be a good for an average normal guy like the mayor himself. All in all a good book filled with characters you will love and a little town that will become a favorite to a reader.

This is the first I have read from Teresa Mummert and have to say I was enchanted with it. Here is a young girl, Cass, who not one moment in her life has had happiness.  Tucker is a man who is just like her but has overcome so many tragedies in his life and wants Cass to know there is happiness over the rainbow. These two together were like yin and yang they balanced each other in a way that Teresa Mummert did a beautiful job in it. Tucker knows what he wants and though Cass is reluctant at first she sees happiness within her reach. The White Trash series is one that is worth reading to see how far Cass can go to reach her luck at the end of the rainbow.
