Review: Country Proud by Linda Lael Miller
Country Proud is the second book in the Painted Pony Creek series and I very much enjoyed it. I really enjoyed both Eli and Brynne. You could see why they at one time were together. They just fit.
Eli is a sweet guy that works so hard at his job and helps his sister with her family. She counts on him and he doesn't mind at all What's sexier than a guy willing to pitch in? You see right away that after his friend gets married (book 1) he's looking to do the same thing. He just lucks out when his first love comes back to town.
You'll love Brynne but realize right away she has an unhappy dating past. She's promised herself she will never date a cop again and who does she have feelings for but a cop. She really does fight it for as long as she could but I think she finally comes to understand that life is a chance.
Usually, I'm not a big fan of second chance romance but if I do read them I don't mind so much when they are kids when they first had their romance. People grow as they age and become different people in some way. I really enjoyed Eli and Brynne's second chance at romance and was happy to read this story. A lot happened in the story and once or twice I found myself tearing up. I also enjoyed the mystery that runs through it. So many good things to enjoy about this book. Now I'm reading for the next one which is out in April. Have any of you read her?
