Single mom, Eisley Barrett, prefers to keep romance safely housed within a centuries-old mystery, but when she travels to England to unearth the secret, an actor with a sordid past offers her reluctant heart a very different type of discovery.
Wes Harrison has a past he’s ashamed to confess. Suspicious and cynical, he’s managed to avoid romantic entanglements since a tragedy upended his career and life, that is until American Eisley Barrett comes along. Her authenticity and kindness upend his bitter assumptions and send his heart into unscripted territory.
When his past threatens to ruin a second chance at love, can some Appalachian matchmaking and letters from the grave salvage their unexpected romance?
Just the Way You Are by Pepper Basham has to be my favorite book of hers, or should I say tied for first place with The Thorn Healer. The snark and sass in this novel had me laughing out loud. The heroine, Eisley who is accident prone brings lots of smiles, from running down a Grampa in the airport to falling in a hole. The hero, Wes is definitely swoon worthy. His care and attention he gives to Eisley, her children, and especially her heart is sweet and tender. Pepper is an up and coming author, one that you not only need to watch but definitely read. I loved this book from beginning to end and I highly recommend it!
