Restless in Carolina: A Book Review

Summary: Widow Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan is determined to find a an eco-friendly buyer for her uncle's land so that he can right a wrong in the family's history. When two men are interested in purchasing the property and also in pursuing Bridget, she has to figure out which man is the one for her and which one is just a "widow sniffer." Will she find out the truth before her heart is broken again?

My thoughts: I enjoyed this book. At first, it was a little hard to get into the book because I didn't click with Bridget as quickly as I did the characters in the previous books in this series. However, I think that shows the character for who she is: rough on the edges and a little odd but after a while, people see her heart and all she has to offer. Bridget's zany idiosyncrasies like her refusal to read the words "happily ever after" to her niece lighten the serious theme of the book, Bridget's anger at God for taking her husband and her struggle to live and to love again.

Overall, it was an enjoyable conclusion to the series, and readers will enjoy seeing what is finally done with Uncle Obe's property.

I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
