Serendipity Review...


Title:  Serendipity
Author:  Stacy Bentley


The saying goes that there is a fine line between love and hate...but what happens when the line becomes blurred?

When life hands Phoebe Andrews her dream job, she's ecstatic.  That is, until she realizes that in order to pursue her dream she'll have to give up her cosmopolitan lifestyle in Chicago and move to Nashville.  As if leaving all she knows behind wasn't enough, a car accident on her first day in town does nothing to convince the city girl that country living is all it's cracked up to be.

As an only child, Dean Montgomery has obligations - obligations which have left him angry at the world.  Just as his monotone life has begun to leave him jaded, he is brought back to earth with a bang...literally.

Fate conspires to bring the city girl and the country boy together, but can Dean stay out of trouble long enough for the pair to test the boundaries of their tempestuous relationship?

When Stacey isn't writing, she's a full-time mom, which means she's a cook, chauffeur, maid, nurse and constantly on the go.  she was born and raised in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan which is where she resides today.  Raising her children as a single parent has proven its difficulties but she doesn't let that stop her from doing the things that make her happy.  In her down time, which is rare, you can find her curled up with a book.

It took me a total of a few hours to read this book.  It started out slow but after a few chapters it really picked up speed and I fell in love with the characters.  I love when you fall in love easily with characters...it makes it so much easier to read the book.  Stacey Bentley took two very different characters and crashed them into each others lives (quite literally) and they completely and utterly fell in love.  

The mix of city and country is still one of my favorite mash-ups in a romance book.  I love watching the city girl get thrust into country life or vice versa and watch them change.  It is always unique and there is always that one thing that completely changes their attitude and make them really get into country life.  This book is no exception and it was so much better than some of the others I have read.

If you want something heart warming one minute and heart wrenching the next this is the book for you.  It had a little bit of everything and is well worth a read.  Congratulation Stacey Bentley on writing a fabulous book and I can't wait to read the next book.

MY RATING:

5 out of 5 stars
