I am excited to post a review on this southern charm of a novel! Truthfully I chose this novel to read entirely based on the cover. Vintage dress, jeans, beautiful southern scenery those items alone peaked my interest and gave me a feeling this would be a read I might like.
Lucky for me Gone South lived up to its cover, I loved it! I found myself flipping through the pages and reading the entire novel in one sitting.
Tish with her shattered dreams and vintage heart. Decides to take a road trip to tour a Civil War-era home that once belonged to her great-great-great-grandparents. What wasn't in her plans, falling quickly in love with the beautiful home in the Deep South of Alabama. Spontaneously abandoning her life and the tragic events of the past that occurred in Michigan. Tish decides to buy the old home and sets out on a new course and dream to begin what she hopes is a promising new life adventure.
What she doesn't anticipate is based on her name alone and because of her ancestry and events that occurred long before she was born. The town has already made up their opinions of her and southern hospitality is not going to be extended her way. She is labeled an outcast and a Yankee without a chance. Tish is quickly beginning to wonder if she made the worst mistake possible by moving there.
Tish soon meets Mel, a prodigal girl with a destructive past who is returning to an unwelcome home. Finding her alone and on the streets, Tish trusts instinct and invites Mel to come and stay with her. She also meets George, a handsome antique dealer with a heart like her own. Who has decided to leave town gossip behind and befriend her.
Despite all the warnings Tish continually receives against Mel and her destructive past. She decides to put her trust in her and allow her to stay even when things look like they might come crashing down on them both. Additionally, Tish can't seem to catch a break in her own new life. So she begins searching for answers to her past as wonders if everything is as it seems. Tish soon becomes determined to set out and figure out a way to live this new life she has chosen and help those who have become closest to her, no matter if it may cost her everything.
I really enjoyed reading this book! Gone South is very well written, the author did a fabulous job with her vivid descriptions. You'll feel as though you can see the scenes as they unfold to you in the pages. This book is a clean read and has all the charms of the south. If you enjoy well written contemporary romances, that will leave you positively uplifted, you'll enjoy reading Gone South!
