Restless in Carolina
I love Tamara Leigh's novels! :)
I have to admit, this new series didn't resignate with me QUITE much as her older novels did (Splitting Harriet, Faking Grace, etc.) because I just loved those SO much....but they were still a very enjoyable read!!
If you care about the environment, you'll really love this saucy heroine in RESTLESS IN CAROLINA. She dubs herself a tree hugger, and even has dreads for a small part of the story. But women everywhere, huggers or not, can relate to the pain (whether experienced ourselves or just imagined) of a woman trying to toss her "widow's weeds" and learn to live again.
Don't miss this heartfelt, funny adventures of the entire Pickwick family in this Southern Discomfort series! You can pick up your copy of this novel HERE, releasing JULY 19th! (today! woohoo!
Here's the back cover:
She’s all about going green. Could he be her white knight—or will he make her see red? Tree-huggin’, animal-lovin’ Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan is on a mission. Well, two. First she has to come to terms with being a widow at thirty-three. After all, it’s been four years and even her five-year-old niece and nephew think it’s time she shed her widow’s weeds. Second, she needs to find a buyer for her family’s estate—a Biltmore-inspired mansion surrounded by hundreds of acres of unspoiled forestland. With family obligations forcing the sale, Bridget is determined to find an eco-friendly developer to buy the land, someone who won’t turn it into single-family homes or a cheesy theme park. Enter J. C. Dirk, a high-energy developer from Atlanta whose green property developments have earned him national acclaim. When he doesn’t return her calls, Bridget decides a personal visit is in order. Unfortunately, J. C. Dirk is neither amused nor interested when she interrupts his meeting—until she mentions her family name. In short order, he finds himself in North Carolina , and Bridget has her white knight—in more ways than one. But there are things Bridget doesn’t know about J. C., and it could mean the end of everything she’s worked for…and break her heart.
