Dr. Adelina Roseland has worked ten years in research as an accent reduction specialist to attain her dream job. But a secret wager to transform Appalachian cattle farmer Reese Mitchell into corporate material challenges Adelina in ways she never expected, threatening her new position.
For one, Adelina didn’t plan for the faith and friction of Reese, or the unexpected influence of his chaotic family. Now, drawn into a culture she’d tried to forget, Adelina finds the warmth of family, the hope of faith, and the joy of love melting away the deep wounds of her past.
But when Reese discovers that he’s a pawn in her climb up the academic ladder, will he forgive Adelina’s deceit or will their miscommunication end in two broken lives?
Sadly, this is a book that I’ve had on my TBR for way too long…today I was looking for a good book to read and decided on this one.
Makes me sad I’ve been missing out on this really good series for way too long.
This story has a bit of a “My Fair Lady” feel to it.
Contemporary romance with an Appalachia twist.
I loved Dee. Real, and yet so wounded, so many ways I could relate to her.
And Reese…what a delightful hero.
This book has just the perfect balance of humor…
All in all, I found it an absolutely delightful read, and can not wait to read the next book in the series!! (This is not a new book, as a lot of books are that I post reviews about….this means that I can go ahead and keep reading the rest of the series!)
