RESTLESS IN CAROLINA

Who knew a dirt-loving, tree-huggin' heroine would be so fun? The conflict created when Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan wants to sell the family property only to an eco-friendly developer runs even deeper than it would seem, and doesn't get fully revealed until the twist at the end. Restless in Carolina is the last book in the Southern Discomfort series, and MAN, I don't know how I missed the second one. It can definitely still be read as a stand-alone.

BLURB:

She’s all about going green. Could he be her white knight—or will he make her see red?
Tree-huggin’, animal-lovin’ Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan is on a mission. Well, two. First she has to come to terms with being a widow at thirty-three. After all, it’s been four years and even her five-year-old niece and nephew think it’s time she shed her widow’s weeds. Second, she needs to find a buyer for her family’s estate—a Biltmore-inspired mansion surrounded by hundreds of acres of unspoiled forestland. With family obligations forcing the sale, Bridget is determined to find an eco-friendly developer to buy the land, someone who won’t turn it into single-family homes or a cheesy theme park.

Enter J. C. Dirk, a high-energy developer from Atlanta whose green property developments have earned him national acclaim. When he doesn’t return her calls, Bridget decides a personal visit is in order. Unfortunately, J. C. Dirk is neither amused nor interested when she interrupts his meeting—until she mentions her family name. In short order, he finds himself in North Carolina, and Bridget has her white knight—in more ways than one. But there are things Bridget doesn’t know about J. C., and it could mean the end of everything she’s worked for…and break her heart.

Fourteen novels since 1994 - an obviously creative talent!

I'll have to pop over to her site.

Thanks for the review.
