Overview

Things Paige Morrison will never understand about Mirabelle, Florida:

Why wearing red shoes makes a girl a harlot
Why a shop would ever sell something called "buck urine"
Why everywhere she goes, she runs into sexy-and infuriating-Brendan King

After losing her job, her apartment, and her boyfriend, Paige has no choice but to leave Philadelphia and move in with her retired parents. For an artsy outsider like Paige, finding her place in the tightly knit town isn't easy-until she meets Brendan, the hot mechanic who's interested in much more than Paige's car. In no time at all, Brendan helps Paige find a new job, new friends, and a happiness she wasn't sure she'd ever feel again. With Brendan by her side, Paige finally feels like she can call Mirabelle home. But when a new bombshell drops, will the couple survive, or will their love come undone?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
01/06/2014
In Richard’s transporting first Country Roads contemporary, a city girl tries to adjust to smalltown life. After losing her job and her boyfriend in Philadelphia, Paige Morrison moves in with her parents in Mirabelle, Fla. Paige immediately gets off on the wrong foot, defensively assuming that everyone thinks she’s “an amoral, promiscuous pothead,” but mechanic Brendan King isn’t thwarted by her prickly behavior. Brendan easily wins Paige over with his charming smile and easygoing manner as he helps her find employment and introduces her to the town’s charms. The romance between Paige and Brendan is sweet and subtle, complete with moonlit kisses, sunny beach picnics, and little touches and glances that slowly rev up their mutual attraction—but gossip and tragedy threaten to disrupt their happiness. Richard’s page-turner marks her as a contemporary romance author to watch. (Mar.)
Lori Wilde
"A fine debut novel, Richard's populates her appealing small town with quirky secondary characters, a feisty heroine and a hero to sigh for."

RT Book Reviews
"4 1/2 stars! These characters are rich and deep, and so expertly written that they feel like friends, and the best news of all is that this small-town series is set to continue!"

Meet the Author


Shannon Richard grew up in the Florida Panhandle as the baby sister of two overly protective but loving brothers. She was raised by a more than somewhat eccentric mother, a self-proclaimed vocabularist who showed her how to get lost in a book and a father who passed on his love for coffee and really loud music. She graduated from Florida State University with a BA in English Literature and still lives in Tallahassee where she battles everyday life with writing, reading, and a rant every once in a while. Okay, so the rants might happen on a regular basis. She's still waiting for her Southern, scruffy, Mr. Darcy, and in the meantime writes love stories to indulge her overactive imagination. Oh, and she's a pretty big fan of the whimsy.

    Must Read!


    There was no reviews on B&N or Goodreads (actually I couldn't even find it on goodreads) so when I bought this book I was taking a huge risk. It was the most amazing risk & worth more than the meager $2.99 I paid for it! Take a chance on this book you will not be disappointed. This one is going on my top 10 most enjoyable reads of all time and so far is the best book I have read this year.
    It had perfect balance of all key elements. Nothing felt rushed, over the top or forced. It was a very real work of fiction. 5+ stars in all areas; romance, sizzle, steam, character development (interactions), town interactions, side character development (interaction), flow, angst, insecurities, nosy or mean people, editing and plot.
    I think this is the first book I can honestly say I have all pros an absolutely no cons! For me that has never happened, even with the other books on my all time best reads.
    Can't wait to read more from this author!!

    Great book!

    I got this book because of the first review and she had it nailed. It keeps your interest, is a fast read, not boring in the least, and at times the author's writing style and humor reminded me a lot of Janet Evanovich. I can't wait to read more of her work. Go ahead and buy it. You won't be sorry nor will you be able to put it down!

    Very refreshing book for a light summer read. The book is the first in a series and the author does a good job building the relationships that will come in future books.  I look forward to more books in this series.

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.  I'd seen mixed reviews for this book and thought I wouldn't like the book, right up until I started reading it.  Of course, once Paige met Brandon, I wasn't going to stop until I'd read the entire book.  




    I was surprised by the animosity Paige faced in Mirabelle.  She was misjudged and even then whatever people decided about her were based on what I thought to be trivial and inconsequential things.  I liked how she tried her best to not let it get to her.  




    I really enjoyed the chemistry between Paige and Brendan.  They were hot together and I felt like I could relate to them.  I wanted them to overcome the obstacles keeping them apart.  I also like how this book essentially laid down the framework for the second book in the series.  I really enjoyed my first book by Shannon Richard and look forward to reading more from her.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    I really enjoyed this book when I started it. It seemed it would have a great cast of characters and lots of drama with the judgmental town of Mirabelle, Florida. However, as the story pushed forward it seemed to really go nowhere. At times I found it boring and even overly descriptive. It seemed that everything was broken down and extremely detailed, from a baseball game to the rules of a cooking competition at a fair, but it had no true bearing on the story. The writing at times was choppy and simple and the need to overly describe everything was simply filling up pages.
    I liked the story. It was sweet and I really liked all of the characters, especially Paige and Brendan. I was really hoping that at some point Paige would find a way to shut the judgmental town jerks up. I really wanted her to show them, find a way to shock them into silence and to humble them into realizing how wrong they were about her. I was disappointed with this book. It unfortunately just moved at a slow pace and became the same thing over and over without any real conflict. The minor conflicts there were just skimmed the surface. There were some sad parts, but the movement of the story and the writing style took away from the emotion in those parts of the book.

    Undone is the first novel from the all new Country Roads series

    Undone is the first novel from the all new Country Roads series by debut author Shannon Richard.




    From the first page I was hooked, absorbed in the story of Paige, who after a disastrous streak of bad luck which included: losing her job, her roommate, her apartment and her boyfriend (all in that order), has moved to Mirabelle Florida to live with her parents while she looks for a job, but quite a few people have been less than friendly since her arrival, the town is full of judgemental gossipmongers who don't agree with the way Paige dresses or acts, referring to her as easy because of the way she looks, her bad luck continues with each and every job interview, and after another rejection her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere without a car, person or building to be seen, enter sexy and single mechanic Brendan, who has been the subject of the rumor mill over the years, sympathetic to her troubles he finds her a job and welcomes her into his group of friends it's not long before these two start a relationship together.




    But the road to happily ever after is never a smooth one, and there will be things along the way that they'll have to deal with together, but will a secret destroy their happiness altogether or will they find a way to overcome this devastating secret that was kept under the best intentions?




    Once I picked this book up it was so hard to put it back down again, Shannon's writing has a way of drawing you in and making you lose track of time, I've fallen in love with this series and I can't wait for the next books in the series to be released.




    For those of you who love a fun, entertaining and quick read then be sure to pick this book up.

    I absolutely loved it! I loved the characters, the plot, the set

    I absolutely loved it! I loved the characters, the plot, the setting; all of it! It's good to read about characters who stay true to themselves, and who are mature in his/her actions. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series and any other books by Shannon Richard! The love between Paige and Brenden was written really beautifully. "Undone" has a lot of heart and soul; I couldn't put it down. I don't have any gripes about "Undone", so I'll just say it's a must read for anyone who loves deep romances without out the main characters having to be tormented first. Loved, Loved, Loved it!

    This was a wonderful short read. There really isn't much more to say than that. It keeps your interest and has grest twists that you never see coming. Any book that can bring tears to my eyes is beautifully written.

    This is the first book I have read from Shannon and I liked it a lot. She did a good job writing a nice mix of happy along with deep emotions. She has a wonderful collection of true to life characters. Start with Paige who gets dumped by her boyfriend. She has to move to Florida to live with her parents again and look for a new job. Add in Brendan and it starts to get HOT. She doesn't want another man. He is hooked the moment he meets her when he goes to tow her car. She is used to Philadelphia and he is small town. She doesn't understand that when you move South you are never completely accepted. She does her best. There are spots of happy and spots of sadness. It makes this is well balanced story. Please read this book.

    It took me a bit to get into the story because I felt there was too much description or that some things could have been skipped BUT I'm really happy I stuck it out. This book hit on every emotion. I laughed and I cried. The relationship Paige and Brendan had together was strong. They had a solid foundation of real love and respect for one another. The friendships were real. The small town life was real. The challenges and sadness you could feel pouring through the words. I loved the characters so much that I'm glad to see they will have their own stories as well. This was my first from Shannon Richard, but not my last.
