HAPPY JANUARY AND NEW YEAR!!!
Pepper Basham new release "My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge" is a sweet story. It has all the romance, drama and secrets that you will find in her books. I haven't read a book of hers that I didn't love. Laurel has lived a life quite the opposite of Jonathan's. Jonathan has been given opportunities that Laurel longs for. He is in for lessons in life he has never faced and without warning she becomes his teacher in learning to live life in The Appalachians. Will her dreams come true of furthering her education? Will his father realize that success comes in different packages? I loved these two characters and the way they interacted with his other. I applaud Laurel for helping a greenhorn which she could have just left him on his own. I cheered for Jonathan as he learns the ways of these proud people. Want answers to my questions?
