Loving the Country Boy

GIVEAWAY

ROSS, MIA
LOVING THE COUNTRY BOY

A city girl's second chance

City girl Tess Barrett hopes her move to Barrett's Mill, Virginia, will give her a fresh start. As she gets to know the family she's never met and begins work at their sawmill, everything starts falling into place. Until she meets Heath Weatherby. After narrowly escaping an oil rig explosion, Heath won't waste his second chance at life. He's committed to starting a family—and he wants Tess for his wife. Tess refuses to give in to her feelings for Heath, convinced they're just too different. But when the rugged mechanic is hired to fix her family's mill, her heart begins to recognize the charming country boy as her one true love.

My Review:

First things first -- cutest cover ever! If that picture doesn't make you want to read the book maybe my review will. :-)

Ross has taken us back to Barrett's Mill -- a fictional town in the Blue Ridge Mountains that seems so real I tried googling it (that's how I know it's fictional!) The author has captured the charm of small town life to perfection with characters that could have climbed out of a Norman Rockwell painting.

In Loving the Country Boy the author explores the strength of family as long lost cousin, Tess, discovers what it means to be part of the multi-generational Barrett clan. Small town life and rowdy know-it-all cousins are a foreign entity to her and it takes some adjustments for this only child who is estranged from her parents to find her place.

Tess's cultural shock is evident to Heath.  She's prickly and wary and a little too highfalutin for the likes of him. But he's intrigued too and has the uncanny ability to cut through Tess's fa├žade to reveal the real woman within. And that's unsettling -- for both of them. There are some exceptionally entertaining spats, cutting dialogue, mischievous teasing and earnest soul-bearing that goes on between the two. And somewhere along the way they fall in love...and so does the reader. A love story that will leave you smiling.
