Jessie Belle: The Women of Merryton - Book One by: Jennifer Peel
Nestled in the picturesque Rocky Mountains, lies the quaint town of Merryton, Colorado. You will never find finer people or better friends. But try keeping a secret in Merryton and you will soon find that the good townspeople are better than any private investigator or undercover journalist. The men and women of Merryton are like living barometers, and when a storm is brewing in the life of one of their own, they are sure to get to the bottom of it--and forecast it on the Merryton grapevine.
Jessica and Blake Summers know a thing or two about what it’s like to be the latest and greatest news on the vine. Their thirteen year marriage has had more than its fair share of heartache and loss. Then the past comes knocking, in the form of a teenage girl, a daughter Blake never knew existed. The news sets the Merryton grapevine on fire.
In the wake of this revelation and firestorm, Blake and Jessica are forced to reevaluate their own relationship and priorities, all while learning that raising a teenage girl is not for the faint of heart. But in the midst of the chaos and uncertainty, they discover that Madeline may just be what the doctor ordered to heal their broken hearts and mend their own tattered relationship.
Will they have the courage to look forward and find a greater love than they could ever imagine? Or will past hurts and the town grapevine tear them apart?
Since I started book reviewing as a hobby I have seen and heard a lot about many different Authors. I am always hesitant to try a new Author because I try to keep everything I read clean and you never really know what you are going to get until you dive in. I had heard that Jessie Belle was an awesome book and I have a HUGE stack of books to be read right now.....but since the second book just came out and people are raving about them both I bumped it to the top. Let me tell you everything I have heard was true. This book was awesome I loved it! Jessie and Blake have been married for 13 years and let's just say things are becoming very rocky for them. I can relate year 13 was a bad one for me too but we pushed through and are on 16.5 now! This book will have you feeling happy and frustrated and sometimes I even wanted to throw my kindle but I read it in less than 24 hours and I fell in love with Jessie and Blake and wanted so badly for them to have a happy ending. I am so glad I gave Jennifer a try. I actually have a bunch of her books in my stack already from recommendations from others so I am super excited to read more! It's always a great day when you can add an Author to your list and Jennifer is a good one. Her books are full of emotion and truth and passion (in a good way it was a clean one!) and I will be reading more! Thank you Jennifer! From your newest fan!
