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?
If I had to sum up this book in one word it would be fun.
Jefferson Lee, and yes that is what everyone calls him. Has to come and help his uncle. While there he loses his job in the big city, and starts dating the local sheriff. All while trying to help is uncle write the local town blog, help the town up on the yearly Dogwood Festival. Search for a new job and save his sanity.
This is a sweet tale about a local town and what they get up to when too many of them are related to you, have known you for too long, or are just plan noisy. (all in a good, fun away)
Zane and Jefferson start out bumbling along but get themselves sorted out. Now if we could just get the Mayor and uncle.
The easy banter between all of these charaters, first, secondary. You can almost picture them sitting around the kitchen table or in a local diner having these convo. Job well done.
