I love a contemporary romance that I can really sink my teeth into. Especially when it's well written. And that perfectly sums up this first novel in Janet Ferguson's Southern Hearts series. By the time I got to the end of this novel, these characters truly felt like friends. I was totally invested in their stories - even the secondary characters like Nick and Jill - and I can't wait to see more of them in the books to come.
The romance is tender and mature. I love a guy who knows when a girl's worth waiting for - even when she feels broken on the inside - and Jess's patience and friendship with Sarah Beth was beautiful to watch. One of my favourite moments in the book is when Jess finally asks Sarah Beth on an official date. She tells her best friend Jill, a little stunned, and Jill snickers, "You've been dating for months, silly. You just choose to pretend otherwise." And it's true. It's such a beautiful observation of the way their friendship develops and deepens through the book, before they finally get to that first kiss... *sigh*
Janet W. Ferguson definitely has a new fan :-)
