TESS IN BOOTS by Courtney Rice Gager,

a contemporary romantic novel that releases today!



Tess Dougherty plans every aspect of her life right down to the last detail. But she doesn’t plan on running her boyfriend off by bringing up the topic of marriage before he’s ready. And she doesn’t plan to lose her job on the day she’s set to receive a huge promotion. So when her perfect world unravels, Tess makes a new plan: disappear.
Tess packs her bags and leaves her city apartment for a remote vineyard in North Carolina. At first, she’s put off by the slow pace of small-town life in the South. She’s especially irritated by Thatcher, the vineyard’s smart-mouth, dimple-faced farmhand. But she soon begins to appreciate the area’s charm, and Thatcher’s charm, too. She even swaps her trademark heels for a pair of cowboy boots. As Tess spends more time getting to know Thatcher, she finds herself loosening her grip on her old life little by little. Unfortunately, things on the vineyard aren’t as simple as they seem. There’s a secret here, and when the truth comes to light, Tess is forced to reconsider every plan she’s ever made.

My Thoughts:

*I received this book for review from the publisher. This in no way affects my thoughts expressed in this review*

I was so excited to read this book ever since I helped reveal the awesome cover a few months ago! I’ve always loved those Hallmark type movies that have someone from a ‘big city’ visiting a small town and, well, not liking it at first but eventually falling in love with the town and its people. So, this book based on the synopsis sounded right up my alley – and it was. I really enjoyed reading it!

Tess and Thatcher were just such… adorable characters. I loved reading about them. This book combines great contemporary and a bit of suspense that makes for a great story that will leave you wanting your own pair of cowboy boots!
