So excited to have a new series from Ms. Mabie, her writing is an easy escape from reality. A way of writing that has the small town of Wynne playing out in front of you like a movie. This one took me a bit to get into if being honest…but once the relationship between the good dentist and townie heated up, I was hooked and read in one sitting..
Coming from a small town, I know first hand how you can become stagnant…the views of others can become the reality you live. How a nickname can become your destiny. The walls that are built within that name that shell her in, that keep her protected. That all changes when a man rolls into town and wants to know the “real” woman behind the name…only then can she see herself in a different light.
Watching these two strike a friendship, work together, build each other up and eventually fall in love was comforting…like sipping the glass of sweet tea while rocking on the front porch..I enjoyed having the small town of Wynne come to life and the tomboy girl find the beautiful woman she is emerge through the eyes of a hot new neighbor!
