Description of Sweetbriar Cottage
“Sweetbriar Cottage is a story to fall in love with. True-to-life characters, high stakes, and powerful chemistry blend to tell an emotional story of reconciliation.” BRENDA NOVAK, NYT bestselling author
When Noah and Josephine Mitchell discover their divorce was never actually finalized, their lives are turned upside down.
Following his divorce, Noah gave up his dream job, settling at a remote horse ranch in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia, putting much-needed distance between himself and the former love of his life. But then Noah gets a letter from the IRS claiming he and Josephine are still married. When he confronts Josephine for the first time in months, they discover that she missed the final step in filing the paperwork and they are, in fact, still married.
Josephine is no happier about the news than Noah. Maybe the failed marriage–and okay, the botched divorce–was her fault, but her heart was shattered right alongside his, more than he would ever believe. The sooner they put this marriage behind them, the better for both of their sakes.
But when Josephine delivers the final paperwork to his ranch, the two become stranded in his cottage during the worst spring snowstorm in a decade. Being trapped with Josephine is a test of Noah’s endurance. He wrestles with resentment and an unmistakable pull to his wife–still beautiful, still brave, and still more intriguing than any woman he’s ever known.
As they find themselves confronted with each other and their shared past, old wounds surface and tempers flare. But when they are forced out into the storm, they must rely on each other in a way they never have before. Josephine finally opens up about her tragic past, and Noah realizes she’s never been loved unconditionally by anyone–including him. Will Noah accept the challenge to pursue Josephine’s heart? And can she finally find the courage to trust Noah?
My review of Sweetbriar Cottage
I know you read it all the time, but…I could not put this book down…..and in this case it is literally true.
I had to force myself to put the book down and make lunch. Then I suggested, actually I didn’t thaw anything out for dinner and told my husband that I could make a salad or he could order pizza. So, we had pizza for dinner. I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish the book, and it was well worth it.
This book will appeal to anyone who likes a clean romance. It has a good plot and interesting twists along the way.
It is well written and has a good message.
Okay, now I’ve gotten the important part out of the way…Let me tell you why I liked this book so much. It wasn’t the same old boy meets girl. They overcome all the obstacles that are thrown at them. They live happily ever after. This was a story about a man and a woman who’d been married. They thought they were perfect for each other. They were happy until she cheated on him and they got divorced.
The story begins when Noah receives a letter from the IRS that claims he and his ex wife are still married. Noah and Josie are thrown into a series of circumstances that force them to work together and talk, something they haven’t done in a very long time. The chaos that ensues is interesting to unravel.
The main characters are both likeable. I was rooting for both of them to work things out and get back toeghter throughout the whole book. I think if a book has you so wrapped up in the outcome that you have to keep turning the page to find out what happens next, the author has done a good job of writing.
I know you will enjoy this book. It will be released June 13, 2017, so order your copy ASAP.
You’ll be glad you did.
