Small Town Rumors

Everyone is talking about Jennie Sue Baker and the mess she made of her life in New York. The former high school queen bee—and wealthy darling of Bloom, Texas—has returned home after all these years, riding on a common bus and bearing two bounced alimony checks. In a town that thrives on gossip, Jennie’s fall from grace has shamed her mother, set the town buzzing, and caused old, jealous enemies to whisper in delight. They say she’s taken a job as a housekeeper, gotten a garage apartment, and might be crushing on Rick Lawson, a simple farmer with modest dreams.As romance starts to bud, Jennie relishes what it means to follow her heart, find real new friends, and finally be herself—regardless of all the lying town chatter. But fate has another twist in store. Rumor has it that Jennie now stands to lose what matters most…unless she can convince Rick of one true thing—and that’s love.Review: I very much enjoyed this book. I seem to have a summer beach read ‘type’ because this is a quick, heartfelt read. The last book I read was definitely a rom-com (romantic comedy) but this one allows for a bit more of a rollercoaster of emotions. The main character, Jennie Sue goes through many different struggles that not everyone around her understands or accepts and to go through it with her felt good. You feel her growth as a character coming into her own voice- something we all should aspire to! I would recommend to add this book to your summer reading this!Thank you to Amazon Publishing + NetGalley for my advanced copy.
