I have only read one other book by Virginia Kantra, but I think she is going to be added to my go to list of authors. The Reforming of Matthew Dunn was really well done. I liked Clare, she had a backbone and stood up for her beliefs. The development of the relationship between Clare and Matthew was slow and steady which made it believable, and also made me cheer for them! And who doesn't love a sexy, hot guy who also happens to be a little vulnerable. I am really looking forward to my next VK book!
The Reforming of Matthew Dunn by Virginia Kantra - another great book! This book tugs at your heart. The characters seem true to life. A great beginning to a new series (Sweet Home Carolina).
Loved it! Great story with some exciting suspense and action, and Virginia's characters are always jump-off-the-page amazing. Plus there's a dog. Love!
