Despite what it says in the book description this book is more about a girl who left a small town to get away from problems and is now going back and will have to deal with those problems. There is also an unrealistic romance. And I say unrealistic because if you were any sort of professional (especially one as successful as they portray the heroine to be) you would not be doing anything that could be perceived as preferential towards a contestant in the competition you're involved in judging!
I was also surprised to read that the author had grown up in a small town. There were several plot points that I just didn't believe having grown up in a small town myself. And I won't ruin the climatic scene at the end of the book for those of you that want to read it, though I will say that the author's depiction of what happens with a small town volunteer fire department is about 20 years out dated.
Jane Austen Girl was a long story, 451 pages and ended at 79% on my Kindle. As with the author's other book mentioned above, this is not just one story, it's multiple stories. First there is the main story of Grier McAllister, the head of an image consultant firm and author of a blog of the same name called Jane Austen Girl, who was asked to help consult for a dating show that takes place in her hometown of Timball Creek, Virginia. Grier has not been back for 19 years since she took a bus out of town when she was 18 years old. She has sworn never to step foot in there again as it hold too many bad memories. And her love interest, Bobby Jack. (What a horrible, stereotypical name of someone living in a hick town! Every time I read the name, it took me out of the story.) There is also the minor romance story of Andy, Bobby Jack's daughter and Kyle, Andy's love interest. Whew!
To say that this book was a romance could be misleading. Yes, there is romance sprinkled about, but it wasn't the main story. I felt the book was more about forgiveness and growth, especially for Grier, Bobby Jack (horrible name!) and Andy, who struggle with their pasts and misconceptions of what they think they know. Though the book started out slow, I soon got into it. And there was a scene in the book where my heart just stopped.
This book did not capture me like Good Guys Love Dogs. I didn't feel the chemistry between Bobby Jack and Grier. Actually, the more interesting story line for me was about Andy and Kyle. I like this author. I don't feel this was her best work. Read Good Guys Love Dogs. It's a shorter story, but so worth it!
I'm going to hunt down everything Ms. Cooper writes and hope to be rewarded with more good stories.

I don't know how I overlooked this book before. What a sweet story. Who wouldn't love someone like Bobby Jack? Grier was a mess, but, enjoyed watching her come in to her own... Read morePublished 25 days ago by Petriekd
