Book Review: What Remains True + Giveaway
Working at a little shop on Main Street in a small town is exactly the break that executive Merry Anna Foster needs following her divorce. She's made a bet with her ex-husband that she can live on the amount of money she's giving him in alimony. If she can do it, then Kevin will have to stop complaining and leave her alone. But after three months of this new life, will she even want to leave Antler Creek?
Adam Locklear, bull rider and owner of the local feedstore, is having the best year of his rodeo career. He's also a bit distracted by the pretty new neighbor living in his old bunkhouse. But Adam has no time for matters of the heart. He's got his future all mapped out, and that future doesn't involve a woman just yet. It doesn't involve parenting a little girl either. However, Carly Fowler still suddenly leaves five-year-old Zan--the daughter Adam didn't know he had--in his care.
Is it possible that the future holds a life even better than what Merry Anna and Adam had each dreamed of? One that includes both tenderness and even love--not just for each other but for Zan too.
I found this book to be a sweet and charming read. I liked the location that this story took place in. It is a place that if it was real, I would have wanted to visit. Which I am not surprised having read other books by this author. Nancy really does know how to write lovely books.
I felt for Merry Anna and her situation. She started out fine but by the end of the story, she did find herself. She is someone though that I did have to warm up to a bit longer. Where Adam is concerned, I instantly connected to him. He is very likable. I thought these two did share nice chemistry.
While I did like this book, I just felt myself taking a long while to really get into it. There were times when I was reading and find myself going back to reread as the information was not being retained. Overall, those I still did like this book.
