Summary (from amazon.com):
When Lauren Smith begrudgingly returns to the small Vermont town where she grew up to arrange for the sale of her late grandmother’s old farmhouse, she has everything she’s always worked for. Lauren drives a Mercedes. She’s engaged to one of the most powerful businessmen in the country and wears a three-carat diamond ring to prove it. She lives in a penthouse on Central Park West. Yes, Lauren has everything she considers important. She is smugly prepared for any eventuality in dealing with these country people so Lauren isn’t surprised when the hot water isn’t working at the old house. No problem. She simply looks in the phone book and calls the local plumber.
The moment Caleb Cochran steps through the old screen door to fix the hot water, the glittery facade that masquerades as Lauren’s life begins to crumble around her. Though she tries hard to deny their mutual, magnetic attraction, Lauren is finally forced to reevaluate her focus and come face-to-face with her true self. Small Town Girl is a story of discovering the true meaning of life and love.
**NOTE: A copy of this book was provided by the publisher. However, no compensations were made and this review reflects my honest thoughts and feelings.**
Sex in the City meets Sweet Home Alabama. These are both movies that I thought of while I was reading Small Town Girl.
I loved Lauren. Her power, her drive and as it turns out, her morales. She was a character that I found I could relate to and one that I was routing for the whole time. It never fails that I found myself cheering for the underdog in this book. When it comes to romantic stories, I always want the down-and-out guy to get the girl - who wouldn't?
When Lauren set off to Vermont to deal with her families estate, I found myself falling in love with the setting. A cottage in the middle of the country with all the homey aspects of a farmhouse really set my mind a-glow. Being a fan of anything country, I could picture the small town, the people and the amazing backdrop to this romantic tale.
Linda Cunningham has a unique ability to bring her readers right into the story and make them feel at home. The romantic scenes are so well worded that it sets your skin on fire.
Overall, this was a wonderful book and one that I am looking forward to reading more of.
