I Didn't Want to Like it, but. . .

Restless in Carolina
by Tamara Leigh

When I got this book, I thought it might or might not be interesting, because I figured it would be "fluffy."

Well, it *was* fluffy, but it was a very enjoyable fluffy, and an easy read.

Admittedly, reading about the characters going to Asheville, and naming landmarks in and around the town (like Mellow Mushroom -- YUM) was fun for me because they were all "local" and it made it a little easier to "see" what was going on in the story.

Everyone loves a happy ending, and this was no exception. The author did manage to throw in a couple of surprises, and that was nice, but all of the characters were likeable and it was a fun read.

Overall, it is a pleasant book, but not very deep. If you are looking for quick, vacation reading this will be an excellent choice. Likewise, if your reading time is made up of short intervals, scattered around your day, this book is good because it is easy to pick back up on the action and keep going.

I would give it 4 out of 5 stars because it was enjoyable, but not very deep.

(I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review)
