Book Review 74: She's Gone Country by Jane Porter


Book Description

 August 23, 2010
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.

Review: This is your classic story about the world someone knows completely caving in on them. Drastic changes call for drastic measures and moving back home for Shey. Who knew the adjustment would be so hard {well, OK, I did}?

While a predictable storyline, it moves really well and you'll find it top be a quick read. The locations are described very well and the characters are well mapped out. You should find yourself liking a few, disliking a few and relating to at least one of them.

This is perfect for one of those quite days or nights at home when the kids are at school or at sleepovers.
