Restless in Carolina
by Tamara Leigh
Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan has been a widow for 4 years, but as her sister says, she hasn't yet shed her "widow's weeds." She hasn't talked to God since He "took" her husband. Now she's trying to track down an environmentally-conscious buyer for her family's estate. She finds J.C. Dirk, and her father finds Caleb Merriman. Both men show interest in both her and the estate. But can she trust their intentions?
I have to admit that if I hadn't been reading this for my review club, I would have put it down after the first couple chapters. Honestly, I wasn't that invested in Bridget's character or the storyline until I was halfway through the book. To me, the story seemed to plod along, and Bridget's "tree hugging" attitude kind of put me off. Add to that a whole slew of characters I couldn't keep straight, and I was bored stiff. As I said though, the story seemed to pick up halfway through. I think if I had read the author's first two books in the series, I would have been able to better keep track of the many characters. But overall, I did enjoy the book. I recommend this book, but after you read the first two in the series, Leaving Carolina and Nowhere, Carolina.
