Overview

Frustrated divorcee Amy Warren is striving to fix her life by helping her home town buy the local mill, and then she can put her Plan for the Rest of Her Life in action by buying a rundown cottage and turning it into her heart’s desire.

Amy’s Plan shatters when Jean-Jacques St. Etienne arrives with loads of cash, charisma, and expertise, with every intention of buying the mill for its designs and then abandoning the community. A European playboy, he has no interest in anything except staying occupied so he needn’t remember the tragedy haunting him.

As mild-mannered Amy and dashing Jacques play a cat-and-mouse game that madly leads to love and can only end in heartbreak, their affair affects the existence of an entire town.

    Keeps you hanging on

    This book kept me interested and I really liked the heroine. I had only two problems with the book 1. 'Zack' was just too perfect. He had the looks, charm, money, and was a great sportsman, former Olympian even. The only thing he hadn't done was rescue an infant from the death grip of a great white shark. 2. In terms of the ending, refer to point one. His heroism and bravery is almost as great as saving the infant...... A little too unrealistic and it all comes together tied with a pretty bow. Life is a lot more complicated but I guess that's why we read, to escape real life. It is a good book but it's a shame the ending was so overly dramatic.

    Wonderful story!

    Amy Warren, recently divorced mother of two, needs a home and job. She¿s orchestrating the town¿s purchase of the recently closed textile mill in hopes of reopening the mill and putting the town back to work, herself included. When she learns there is another bidder, she¿s determined to convince the outsider to leave the mill alone. Unfortunately she keeps getting distracted by the handsome stranger¿s charm and kindness toward her children. Jacques St. Etienne has come to Northfork hoping to unearth historic weaving patters from the closed mill. He plans to buy the mill, keep the patterns and sell the equipment, but he¿s drawn to the small town and in particular the very persistent Amy. I loved how Jacques, a playboy world traveler becomes Zach to everyone in the town as he begins to put down roots. The sequel to Small Town Girl, Sweet Home Carolina brings us back to a small town in the North Carolina mountains. The town and its citizens play an integral part in the developing relationship between Amy and Zach. In Sweet Home Carolina Patricia Rice again weaves tried and true romance elements into a unique and memorable story that will resonate long after the last page is read.--Reviewed by Julie Opdyke
