Checking You Out, an all new second-chance small town romance from Ann Whynot, is LIVE in Kindle Unlimited!
REVIEW 📚📚I really enjoyed this second of the author’s contributions to Smartypants Romance. Though technically part of the library series, the connection was tenuous as most of the action took place outside the library walls.
Here we get the story of Norman, who we met in Dewey Belong Together, and Lois, someone with whom he had a connection years ago. It’s kind of a Second Chance Romance, which I normally love, but I usually like a bit more depth to the story of the couple’s first meeting and their long ago relationship.
Lois is a single mom, with custody of her young daughter, who has a complicated relationship with her ex. This causes some drama in the story, but not too much, just enough. I don’t like too much angst in my stories!
This book also deals with agoraphobia, and physical disabilities, which are sorely lacking in the world of romance books, so I was happy to see them. Her previous book deals with other aspects of mental health, so this author is definitely not afraid to tackle the serious issues.
I hope she continues to write stories that make their home in Green Valley, Tennessee. Thanks to the author for the opportunity to read and review this book.📚📚
Lois Washington is at the end of her rope. Struggling as a single mother in an apartment the size of a closet is not the New York City adventure she dreamed of in her starry-eyed youth. When her job goes on the chopping block, she is ready for a major life change. Joining her best friend in Tennessee to become the newest employee at the Green Valley Public Library isn’t exactly where she thought life would take her, but she feels up for the challenge. Only this relocation comes with more than she bargained for.
Norman Grant has had a string of online dating disasters back in Florida. Dealing with chronic pain, he’s concluded that finding a woman who is understanding about his war wounds just isn’t in the cards. That is, until he becomes quite taken with the single mother who’s also a new arrival in Green Valley. The catch? Things are not quite what they seem.
When the past and present collide, Norman and Lois must face painful reminders from their youth. Now, at twenty-seven, Norman’s about to find out just how deeply the wounds he left behind cut.
‘Checking You Out’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #10 in the Green Valley Library series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.
