Cedar Cove meets Heart of Dixie—This southern contemporary romance is a perfect small town read
Just a city girl, living in a lonely world
Displaced Steel Magnolia Norah Burke doesn't know the meaning of failure. But when she threatens to blow the whistle on some shady business practices at her Chicago marketing firm, she gets fired fast as all get out. Licking her wounds, she heads back below the Mason-Dixon for a little home-grown Southern comfort.
Just a small town boy
With his iron-clad Mississippi roots, Councilman Cam Crawford is a man who values tradition, preservation, and the love of a good dog. When a big box warehouse store tries to capitalize on his hometown's economic downturn, it seriously burns his biscuit. He's not about to let anyone's ambition destroy what he holds dear.
A David vs. Goliath story with a side of grits.
This unlikely pair just might be the perfect allies–in war and out. But as the battle to stop GrandGoods heats up and sparks of attraction turn to something more, will Norah's bigger-picture perspective go with Cam's “keep it as it is” attitude? Are they meant to be like biscuits and gravy? Or are they just as wrong as un-sweet tea?
I couldn't stop reading this book once I began. This was a humorous, delightful and romantic story set in the middle of an idyllic small Southern town facing hard economic times. I laughed, teared up and felt like cheering as the town and its residents faced down their Goliaths. These characters felt so familiar that they almost seem like they surely must be friends-of-friends whom I'll meet when I have a chance to stop over in Wishful the next time I'm in Mississippi.
This is an absolute delight of a book. Read it!
