    AN AMAZING LOVE STORY!

    SHE'S GONE COUNTRY by Jane Porter is a contemporary romance set in modern day Texas. It is well written with details and depth. It has romance, cowboys, ranch life, divorce, bullying, second chances, major life changes, adolescent issues and betrayal. The characters are strong, determined, likable and interesting. The heroine, Shey, is in the middle of a divorce, just learned her husband of years is in love with someone else, a male. She moves back home to Texas where she learns to reinvent herself, pick up the pieces of her broken life and her uncertain future for her and her sons. One son, is depressed, being bullied at school, one goes back to New York with her father and the other one is training with her ex-boyfriend for bull riding. The hero, Dane, is her ex, whom they loved each other but where separated by Shey's family.He is also a national bull-riding champ, has lost a child, and is newing his love for Shey. This story is a wonderful story of love lost and found again. Of starting over, forgiveness, it shows of one women's struggles to manage three teenage boys, find her hopes,dreams and deal with her overbearing mother, over protective brothers and manage a new life with the love of her life, a new baby, and a new career. I would recommend this book. It is a good ole country story with good ole country goals. This book was received for review from the publisher and details can be found at 5 Spot an imprint of Grand Central Publishing and My Book Addiction and More.

    Of Jane Porter's trio of friends (Tiana, Shey, and Marta), Shey

    Of Jane Porter's trio of friends (Tiana, Shey, and Marta), Shey has got to be my favorite. I loved her story--and once again, Jane managed to make an intimidating character all too human. Shey grabbed my heart, and I struggled along with her as she made the transition from life in NY to Texas, back with her family, back on the farm, and bringing her boys with her. I enjoyed the romance and Shey's plucky determination to make a life for herself. All in all, this is one of my favorite Jane Porter books.

    This story proved to be a light, breezy, quick read, and exactly what I needed when I picked it up, as I finished it before another book I received as part of a Goodreads giveaway. The voice immediately jumped out at me, and I found myself flipping pages with as much dexterity as a cook making flapjacks. This book won’t cause you to ponder the meaning of life, or have all the answers to the universe, but it certainly knows how to go for entertainment value.

    Jane Porter understands families, and to her credit, southern families, even though she lives in Seattle. She’s either done her homework, or she’s lived in the south. And to place the story in Texas, she really lets her love of the state shine through.

    Shey proves to be a rather interesting and intriguing character with a strong heart, strong will, and strong love of family. The minor characters were fleshed out as well, and other than Shey’s ex-husband, all were likable. If you enjoy women’s fiction, especially with a southern charm, then you’ll probably enjoy this book.

    A great summer read!

    I love a story that lets me escape to the country. Handsome cowboys, ranch life, and a simpler life style ... away from the hustle and bustle of the city. She's Gone Country is just that kind of book.

    Shey is devastated by the end of her marriage, and moves home with her three boys to the ranch where she grew up. I loved the description of her mother, a strong Baptist woman who still likes to tell her daughter what to do (even though Shey is now 39). Shey's two brothers live nearby, so she often feels like she has no freedom to make her own choices.

    And then along comes her old high school sweetheart Dane ... and Shey is immediately transported back to a happier time, and all her teenage dreams surface as though the past 25 years never happened. There are some very serious issues in this book as well, it is much more than a simple romance story.

    All in all, a very enjoyable book ... and a great summer read!
