Review of Discovering You by Brenda Novak

Brief Summary: 

India Sommers at one time had a perfect life, a loving husband and a beautiful daughter. But one tragic night that was all taken away when her ex boyfriend killed her husband and left her a single mother. In hopes of starting over and get a fresh start with her daughter she moves to Whiskey Creek to start her own business. However, what she didn't plan on was fighting another prince charming in the form of handsome bad boy neighbor, Rod Amos. Will she able to resist the handsome neighbor or will she fall for his bad boy charm?

My Review:

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest unbiased review. This is the 10th book in the Whiskey Creek series by Brenda Novak. Right of the bat Brenda did a great job developing India and Rod's characters. She gave you enough of a backstory on India so that you could understand why India acted the way that she did but did not go too overboard where you got bored. She also gave you more backstory on Rod so that you could understand how he had turned out the way he did. In addition to the well developed characters Brenda did a great job of setting the scenes in the book. As the reader reads the story you are really able to picture yourself in the Amos household or on the porch where India is creating her master pieces.

Something that I have always enjoyed about Brenda's books is how she incorporates suspense in romance books. For instance in one of her previous books it was the crazy ex girlfriend. In this book it was the crazy ex boyfriend. I think this suspense helps keep the audience interested in the book all the way through as you want to find out what is going to happen in addition to seeing the romance build between the two main characters. It a great mix of suspense and romance.

I don't think that there was anything that I would have changed about the book. I am interested to see who the next character will be that will have a love interest. Can wait to read more books by Brenda Novak and I  interested to see where she is going to take the series in the future.
