Restless in Carolina wraps up another wonderful series by Tamara Leigh! I have to be honest and say that I was worried about whether or not I’d like this story. I usually don’t read books about widows and Bridget is not only a widow, she’s also a tree hugger with a pet opossum that tries, but really doesn’t know how to play dead! I shouldn’t have worried at all! I loved everything about this story! I loved the humor, the creative storyline, the unexpected twists, every aspect of Bridget’s growth, especially her relationship with God, and yes, even Reggie the opossum!
Bridget’s growth during this story was so well done! I loved how she went from who she was at the beginning of the story to who she was at the end of the story. It felt so real and so believable. I also loved J.C., his growth, and his relationship with Bridget. There were several times during this story that I thought I knew exactly how things would turn out and, thankfully, I was wrong! I also loved how a scene from the beginning of the story was “re-enacted” at the end! Perfection!!
I’m so sad this series is over! And I’m even more sad that I’ve read all of Tamara Leigh’s contemporary stories. Thankfully, I haven’t read all of her medievals yet!
*I purchased this story and was under no obligation to provide a positive review. The faith element is medium.
SHE'S ALL ABOUT GOING GREEN. COULD HE BE HER WHITE KNIGHT? OR WILL HE MAKE HER SEE RED?
Tree-huggin', animal-lovin' Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan is on a mission. Well, two. First she has to come to terms with being a widow at thirty-three. After all, it's been four years and even her five-year-old niece and nephew think it's time she shed her widow's weeds. Second, she needs to find a buyer for her family's estate—a Biltmore-inspired mansion surrounded by hundreds of acres of unspoiled forestland. With family obligations forcing the sale, Bridget is determined to find an eco-friendly developer to buy the land, someone who won't turn it into single-family homes or a cheesy theme park.
Enter J.C. Dirk, a high-energy developer from Atlanta whose green property developments have earned him national acclaim. When he doesn't return her calls, Bridget decides a personal visit is in order. Unfortunately, J.C. Dirk is neither amused nor interested when she interrupts his meeting—until she mentions her family name. In short order, he finds himself in North Carolina, and Bridget has her white knight—in more ways than one. But the things Bridget doesn't know about J.C. could mean the end of everything she's worked for...and break her heart.
