Newly divorced Jesse moves back to her hometown for a fresh start. However, with three sons in tow, romance isn’t a top priority for her. But life is full of surprises, so before you know it, she finds herself involved with two men from her past: her high school sweetheart and an old acquaintance. To make things even more complicated, she has to deal with her asshole ex-husband.
I liked Jesse’s independent nature, her subtle sense of humor, and the way she didn’t fall head-over-heels for either of the guys. I also liked the way she dealt with her ex, never allowing him to get the best of her and setting a good example for her kids. As for the men, I was satisfied with the development of her relationship with Levi, but I wish there had been more about the situation with Cole. In other words, I’m a fan of flawed characters and drama, so I wish Cole had played a bigger role. Regardless, this was a sweet contemporary romance with small town flair and several tastefully done sex scenes.
I’m curious about what DeVisser has in store for the next installment in the Coal Country series!
