Back cover Description:
Weary of the expectations imposed on her by her strict upbringing, eighteen-year-old Mazy Pelfrey prepares to leave her home in the Kentucky mountains for the genteel city of Lexington, where she’ll attend secretarial school. She knows her life is about to change—and only for the better. Everything will be blue skies from now on.
But business school is harder than she thought it would be and the big city not as friendly, until she meets a charming young man from a wealthy family, Loyal Chambers. When Loyal sets his sights on her, Mazy begins to see that everything she’d ever wished to have is right before her eyes. The only hindrance to her budding romance is a former beau, Chanis Clay, the young sheriff she thought she’d left firmly behind.
Danger rumbles like thunder on a high mountain ridge when Mazy’s cosseted past collides with her clouded future and forces her to come to terms with what she really wants.

This Novel was a slow read for me. Good but, a bit on the slow side. Which makes sense since it’s not a suspense novel. I enjoyed reading this novel over the weekend. This novel would make for a great rainy day read. I enjoyed the characters but, I wish I could have felt more of a connection with the characters. This novel is worth the read and if you like an easier paced novel this is one that you would enjoy.
