For fans of Carolyn Brown, Sherryl Woods, and Sharon Sala, comes a heartfelt, Southern second chance story for a single mom and her rambunctious young daughter.
Reggie Lee Stafford is a hometown girl living in Rambling, the town in Texas Hill Country where she grew up. As a single mom, her world revolves around her young daughter and her great job writing for the local newspaper. But her peaceful life is turned upside down when Frank Bell—the bane of Reggie's teenage existence—returns to town to claim his inheritance.
Now, Frank is the owner of the local paper where Reggie works. Reggie can't imagine going to work every day and seeing her old nemesis. Frank seems intent on apologizing, and if he plays his cards right, he might be able to make up for having been such a jerk when they were young. But Reggie has more than her own reputation to protect this time, and Frank is going to have to pull out all the stops to prove he's worth a second chance.
Charming and full of heart, Welcome Back to Rambling, Texas is perfect for fans of:
• Emotional women's stories
• A sweet, unexpected romance
• Small-town characters you can see as your neighbors
• An immersive, authentic Southern setting
One of my favorites by this author
I’ve read a few of this author’s books and I have to say this is now my favorite. If you enjoy enemies to more, this is the book for you. Reggie and Frank meet in ninth grade, when he comes to live with his Great Aunt Rosie. Back then Frank wasn’t the hot, successful guy he is now and when he runs into Reggie in the hallway, he’s embarrassed and doesn’t apologize. No, he gives her a nickname that she hates. She gives him a nickname also. Now, he’s back in town to take care of business, since Aunt Rosie has left her businesses and properties to him. Frank stops at the Stafford’s Mercantile and Reggie thinks the guy in the BMW is hot until he enters the store and opens his mouth asking is that you Regina Vagina? Frank is now the new owner of the building where Reggie’s workplace, The Rambling Gazette, is located. I won’t leave any spoilers, so grab your copy and see if Franklinstein can finally win the heart of Reggie. This book has a lot of wonderful characters and I highly recommend.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley and this is my voluntary and honest review.
