Leaving Carolina ~ by Tamara Leigh

Leaving Carolina by Tamara Leigh was delightful. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it left me wanting to read more by her. It was awesome! I loved the story, I loved the characters, I loved the Southern flavor . . . I just really loved this book!

Piper was a young woman determined to leave her past, the south, and her family behind her. But at an inconvenient time (isn’t it always that way with family?) she’s drawn back into the thick of it. Her motto is ‘get in, get out,’ but it doesn’t exactly work that way. What she finds is that she’s not the only one who’s changed and that maybe her roots still reach to the southern life she’s rejected. Limelight is filled with humor, heartache, secrets, truth, rejection, acceptance, forgiveness and healing. I can’t wait till the next book in the series is out!

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.


Leaving Carolina
By Tamara Leigh

Piper Wick left her hometown of Pickwick, North Carolina, twelve years ago, shook the dust off her feet, ditched her drawl and her family name, and made a new life for herself as a high-powered public relations consultant in LA. She’s even “engaged to be engaged” to the picture-perfect U.S. Congressman Grant Spangler.

Now all of Piper’s hard-won happiness is threatened by a reclusive uncle’s bout of conscience. In the wake of a health scare, Uncle Obadiah Pickwick has decided to change his will, leaving money to make amends for four generations’ worth of family misdeeds. But that will reveal all the Pickwicks’ secrets, including Piper’s.

Though Piper arrives in Pickwick primed for battle, she is unprepared for Uncle Obe’s rugged, blue-eyed gardener. So just who is Axel Smith? Why does he think making amends is more than just making restitution? And why, oh why, can’t she stay on task? With the Lord’s help, Piper is about to discover that although good PR might smooth things over, only the truth will set her free.
