Small Town Girl by Ann H. Gabhart

 Cover Art  This is a wonderful story!  Kate Merritt watches her sister marry the man Kate has loved for years.  While she really is happy for her sister, she knows there isn't another man like him.  When his best man Jay takes an interest in her, she vows to keep her distance from this charmer who doesn't stay in one place too long.  Her little sister quickly grows attached to him, so Kate finds herself tagging along.  They're drawn to each other, but will her distrust and his feelings of unworthiness keep them apart?  Or will the bombing of Pearl Harbor do that for them?

This is a very well-written and cozy, small town story.  I would love to live in Rosey Corner, especially with the Merritt's!  Their love for each other just emanates from the pages.  The characters feel so alive that it seemed as if they would walk into the room at any moment.  I kept rooting for Kate and Jay while understanding what was holding them back.  I feel like I truly understand how it was to live in the days leading up to the USA entering World War II, with hearing about the bombings of London and ships sinking and wondering if the men would be sent over there.  This continues the story from Angel Sister, but years into the future, so it works very well as a stand-alone.  I haven't read it yet myself, but plan to. I have loved the two books I've read so far of Ann's so much that I can't wait to read them all!  She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.  You definitely should check this out!

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.

Available July 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
