Out In The Country by Kate Hewitt

Widowed a year ago, Lynne Marshall believes she's ready to start a new chapter in life. She plans to exchange the bright lights of Manhattan for her home country of Scotland and open a country hotel with her childhood friend Jess and her fiancé Rob. Her daughter Molly will manage the home front as she starts her first year of teaching in one of the city's toughest schools. When those plans are suddenly and tragically ruined, both Lynne and Jess are left shaken--and unsure what the future holds for either of them.

A weekend trip to Lynne's husband's home town in rural Vermont brings new opportunities, decisions, and a second chance at love for both Lynne and Jess... if they dare to risk their hearts again. Meanwhile Molly faces difficult choices of her own, and must decide where her heart truly lies.

Previously published as a magazine serial, Out in the Country is a heartwarming novel celebrating the strength of family, friends, and second chances of all kinds. Written by USAToday bestselling author Kate Hewitt.

She has written over 20 romances for Harlequin Presents, and has been both a RITA and Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice finalist. She has also written several historical novels for a UK publisher.

This was refreshing, even though there were relationships there was no sexual content. We need more of this type of books. I agree that the editing left something to be desired, I would still recommend this book. Story line was realistic. And who hasn't made boo boos in their speech, no matter how well spoken they are.

I did not expect all the story lines to tie up satisfactorily before the pages ran out, but the author did a great job with really good characters. Wouldn't mind meeting them again in another book or two.

A really cute, short story about three women facing new life challenges. It did feel a bit rushed and a bit crowded because there were too many story lines given the length. Molly's story was interesting but not given a lot of time so it fell flat. Lynne and Jess were lovely, but again not enough story. If the book had been twice as long perhaps the story would have been richer. I still gave it 3 stars because I really liked the characters, just wished there was more story.

Sweet clean story. Even though nothing was left hanging in the end, I wished more of the stories were more in depth. (ljb)

This story, although written pretty well, needs serious editing. It would make the book much more enjoyable to read.

This book reminded me so much of Nora Roberts recent writings. It is very well organized. There was enough suspense to keep it interesting.It is a must read for a dreary day as it puts sunlight into your day.

Beautifully written, defining lives of women uncertain of their future and facing trials head on. Love is in the air, but nothing rough or unsavory. Good, clean entertainment that makes me want to buy the next one.

A good, clean read. It's clear, not skipping back and forth til it's confusing to follow. It could really happen and is an enjoyable read. I know women who like it. I might just see if Kate Hewitt has written others.
