A couple years ago I won She's Gone Country by Jane Porter. I remember hearing about it at the time and thinking it sounded good and then it took up residence on my bookshelf for awhile. We went on vacation and I knew I wasn't going to have lots of quality beach reading time so I grabbed this and a few others that I thought I could easily walk away from if the 2 year old needed my attention. Shockingly, I was able to finish two books in a week! I was very impressed.
Description: Shey Darcy, a 39-year-old former top model for Vogue and Sports Illustrated led a charmed life in New York City with a handsome photographer husband until the day he announced he'd fallen in love with someone else. Left to pick up the pieces of her once happy world, Shey decides to move back home to Texas with her three teenage sons. Life on the family ranch, however, brings with it a whole new host of dramas starting with differences of opinion with her staunch Southern Baptist mother, her rugged but overprotective brothers, and daily battles with her three sons who are also struggling to find themselves. Add to the mix Shey's ex-crush, Dane Kelly, a national bullriding champ and she's got her hands full. It doesn't take long before Shey realizes that in order to reinvent herself, she must let go of an uncertain future and a broken past, to find happiness--and maybe love--in the present.
While this book had a lot of sub plots going on that all didn't get explained/wrapped up it was a quick read and my cousin read it one day at the beach after I finished it. It was a good example of having your life turned upside down and starting it up again and finding success in new ways.
If you are looking for a quick vacation read, I'd pick it up. ;)
Have you read any books by Jane Porter?
