Book Three in the Junebug Farms series and we finally see Jessica find love. Running the animal shelter is more than a full time job, it’s a full time life, leaving little room for anything else. Add in the stress of the annual fundraising telethon and Jessica is at capacity. What she really doesn’t need is a change to the TV anchor coming in with new ideas and new pressures.
Sydney doesn’t want to be running the Telethon any more than Jessica wants her. This isn’t where she wants to be or what she wants to be doing, but it’s another stepping stone on her way to wherever she’s going. Sure the Jessica is gorgeous, but there is no way she is getting attached.. or involved.
As always the characters are interesting, there’s enough angst to create a storyline, and a whole host of both new and familiar faces. Sydney is a bit more edgy than others we have seen, a definite incomer with an attitude. Jessica the typically overworked shelter momma with the world on her shoulders. Their journey isn’t straightforward and they both have things to learn, ways to grow.
Georgia Beers writes excellent stories and this Junebug series has been an enjoyable read. This is perhaps my favourite, slightly more angst and a little more raunchy adds a deeper sense of growth and a piquant of having to fight to get there. But in the spirit of the series this is another gentle and light romance, nothing too stressful and never a serious doubt Ms Beers would resolve the storyline into a “happy ever after” in the end. Charming way to spend some downtime with familiar characters and a favourite author.
