Bridget Pickwick Buchanan is on a mission and not much is going to stand in her way! I loved reading Tamara Leigh’s Restless in Carolina. I have read the two other books in the Southern Discomfort series, but if you haven’t, it wouldn’t matter. All three books are good stand alone books. I really liked the first two, and this one definitely did not disappoint!
Bridget is a widow and is slowly shedding the pain that has plagued her since her husband died and left her in alone in her hometown. Her family has been through great upheaval as family secrets have come to the surface and Bridget’s wonderful Uncle Obe has worked to make amends. And he needs money to make the amends he is set on…which means his estate needs to be sold. And not just to anyone, at least not while Bridget has some say in it! Enter JC Dirk, the man with money and green intentions, and an interest in the Pickwick property. But there are secrets that are hidden and other people with different intentions.
I laughed aloud as I read this novel over the course of a few hours. Even though it was a quick read, there was a depth that I find and appreciate in all of Tamara Leigh’s novels. Bridget’s fears and her confusion and her steps toward faith were all understandable and seemingly realistic. I love when I can find myself overcoming my own real life fears as I walk with a character through their fears.
Thank you, Waterbrook Multnomah, for the review copy of Restless in Carolina. My opinions are my own, honest ramblings.
