Small town heroes and big town hearts.
Jefferson Lee Davis is happy with his life in the city until his favorite uncle has a bad fall and he rushes to Holly Creek to make sure Uncle Sherman is okay. Jefferson Lee knows how to navigate small Southern town’s politics and the residents greet him with open arms. Everyone but the town’s sheriff, Zane Yarbrough, that is.
Dogwood Days, the town’s biggest festival is looming, so Jefferson has to step up and take over his uncle’s job as the town blogger, even if that puts him right in the sheriff’s path. Quirky neighbors, meddling family, and a sassy best friend all come together to make Jefferson Lee’s life in Holly Creek a full-time adventure. When he loses his job back in the city, Jefferson Lee has to start a new job search that will take him away from the town he’s learning to think of as home. Will this big city boy find sweet romance in the arms of a small town sheriff or will the allure of the city call him back?
Oh, this was a fun one. 😉 I grew up in a town like this… well, maybe not exactly like this because it wasn’t a small tourist town. It was, however, small enough that if I did something (especially something I shouldn’t have) when I was a child on one end of town, by the time I got home my family knew about it. The plus side to that was that I always had someone looking out for me and so did Jefferson Lee.
I loved the quirky characters, the innocent meddling and the mini-dramas that ensued. The best part though was when I realized that this is the first book in a series. Life in Holly Creek was way too much fun to limit a reader’s time there to just one book.
