She's Gone Country by Jane Porter giveaway
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.
At first I was a bit worried that this book was going to be way over the top, I was surprised when I found that it was actually quite subdued with the whole Southern vibe that the title possesses. I half expected it to be twangy, boot-wearing, pure country type of boot and in reality it was a nice refreshing read. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, and enjoyed the journey Shey takes while finding who she is. Although there were a few heavy moments in the story, this was more of a light weekend read.
I almost forgot to tell you, give this book a chance the beginning is very slow,so stick with it, it gets better as you go!
