With likable, adorable, yet realistic characters in a small Blue Ridge town setting, Sandra Owens opens the new series, Blue Ridge Valley, with an entertaining tale of Jenny Nance, the local, lovable, gorgeous, ginger bartender with wanderlust, and Dylan Conrad, the widowed, rich, and handsome new chief of police from Chicago. Jenny and Dylan connect from the first moment they meet. The attraction is mutual - they click, they bond, they get each other. And they learn to communicate, share the deepest darkest secrets and desires of their hearts and minds, while Jenny is showing Dylan the town and helping him to get to know the people living there. The goal is to keep the relationship status as a temporary fling, until Jenny's departure, but the murky feels and passion don't let them go that easily. That's what I liked the most about this story, the hard things the characters were willing to do, the talks they had, to be able to move on, to grow, and learn from the past. The story is told in the dual first person POV, and we get to know the thoughts and emotions swirling in the minds of the protagonists. The small town at the Appalachian is endearing and the images the author creates are vivid and fresh, neighboring. The ins and outs of the police department come very familiar from Dylan's point of view, at the same time giving a good look at the lives and the people living in the Blue Ridge Valley, alluring the mind of a reader to engage and be intrigued by books to come in the series. While this story is well written with an enticing storyline and endearing characters, just in my opinion, the first person POV, for me it lost some of the intensity and emotional angst and tension that could have been there, and at times it made the story move forward with a bit of a slow tempo as the characters get stuck with their thoughts as their reasoning go in circles. I enjoyed the gorgeous, pleasantly likeable and passionate yet sweet characters introduced in Just Jenny, and the small town living in the Blue Ridge Valley. The setting of the series is beguiling, and I am fascinated and invested to see how the series will develop. ~ Four Spoons

This is the beginning of Ms Owens new series about three childhoods girlfriends now adults. Each hoping to follow their dreams. The series is not only a departure from her previous series, but the style is as well. Each chapter gives the reader alternate POV of the main characters . Not used to this format, it took me a little to get into the story but once I acknowledged the style, it was easy to be engaged not only in the story line but also in the townspeople and their uniqueness. The story belongs to new hired Police Chief Dylan Conrad and Jenny Nance, a woman that will soon be fulfilling her dying sister’s wish to travel the world. But destiny has a different agenda as these two get involved. Their individual story is heartbreaking . As time passes, their relationship evolves ,and while one of them starts to heal their emotional scars, the other one questions their plans. Once again, Ms. Owens will capture your hearts and delivers a heartbreak but also heartwarming story filled with action, loss, hope and love. Can’t wait to see what else the author has in store for us in her next book. I voluntarily read this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
