This book review is for the novel "Restless In Carolina" by Tamara Leigh
Starting off I have to say that I absolutely loved this book! I will definitely be looking for more books by this author.
Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan is a mess. A complete and total mess from her blonde dreadlocked hair to her dirty fingernails and her bitter angry attitude.
A smack of reality in the face comes in the form of her making her five year old niece cry. Not to mention the dressing down that comes from her sister after the incident with little innocent Birdie.
If she had just been able to say the words happily ever after then none of it ever would have happened. But she refuses to further help the deluding of small girls that happily ever after exists because in her world it just doesn't.
The grief that she still wallows in after four years of widowhood refuses to let her out of its grip. Not that she is fighting it and the darkness of it very hard though.
The dreadlocks that she has carefully crafted instead of her silky blonde hair, the sleeping in the guest room instead of her and Easton's room, the shadow of grief and sadness she casts over every family gathering and the not taking proper care of herself. All of this lends to a small intervention on her sisters part.
Making her daughter cry was the straw that broke the camel’s back with her little sister. And it is the smack of reality that Bridget needs to start her feet on the right path again.
It is a slow process but God is working in her life whether she likes it not. No matter how much or how far she runs He is still waiting for her to return to Him.
When her Uncle seeks to sale the families’ Biltmore-inspired mansion that is surrounded by hundreds of acres of unspoiled forestland, Bridgette determines to sell the property to J.C. Dirk, who is a high energy green property developer. Bridgette is all about the environment and she cannot stand the thought that the beautiful estate will be sold to developers that will ruin the beauty and environment that she longs to protect.
What she doesn't realize is that getting J.C. Dirk involved in this is going to complicate her life more than she ever realized.
J.C. Dirk holds secrets himself and can't quite believe it when one Ms. Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan stomps into his important meeting dressed to the nines and determined to get what she wants.
What follows is a story that I almost couldn't put down and which has a twist at the end that I didn't see coming. I highly recommend this novel!
Happy Monday all! What are you reading this week? Anything good to recommend?
