TITLE - Love Rebuilt
AUTHOR - Delancey Stewart
Connor Charles has a dark reputation in the small town of Kings Grove. A reclusive and successful horror writer, he keeps to himself, but that doesn't stop the rumor mill in town. Connor's keeping some dark secrets, but they aren't the ones everybody believes.
Maddie Turner's marriage ended in "I'm-bringing-in-a-younger-model" disaster, and when she finds herself living in a trailer, working in a diner, and stuck in the isolated mountain town where she grew up, she's not sure how to turn it all around. When she meets Connor Charles, sparks fly, but is a mountain romance what either of them really needs?
For fans of Tracy Brogan and RayAnne Thayne, Delancey Stewart’s latest is filled with memorable characters, humor, family, and the happily ever afters we all deserve.
Love Rebuilt is the award-winning first book in Stewart’s new Kings Grove series – a small town romance series set beneath the Giant Sequoias in California.
“Carving out a new path, 3 stars”
Maddie has had crap luck when it comes to relationships. She thought she had it all with her husband only to find out it was all a lie. Now she’s hanging out in the mountain town she spent time in as a kid and trying to make ends meet. Her ex is sniffing around and causing trouble, she has a brother won’t speak to her, and what about the sinfully sexy mystery man she can’t help but wonder about?
Connor has lost everyone important to him at some point in his life and only been able to save one. Everyone treats him like a pariah because he’s a crime suspense writer. Anytime there is a issue around him everyone points a finger in his direction. When he drives into Maddie’s life he didn’t know what he was getting himself into.. then again neither did she.
I did enjoy Love Rebuilt, I just wanted more. I wasn’t fully satisfied with the story, but it could just be me. Love Rebuilt held a air of mystery and suspense with a dose of love. You got to glimpse at people changing opinions, loss, and love. I personally wanted more relationship coverage between not only the hero and heroine but some of the secondary characters. With that said I still can’t wait to see where Stewart takes the series as a whole.
