Meredith Colt has an epiphany on her way to her own wedding. The epiphany leaves her in the arms of sexy green-eyed stranger Marlon Bridges. Four weeks later, the lovely Miss Colt arrives at her deceased Grandfather's house in search of herself in Heaven, Pennsylvania (Redneck Capital of the World, according to her mother and sister) only to find her closest neighbor is none other than the sexy Redneck Marlon Bridges, owner of the Heavenly Timber and Logging Company.
The town has very strict views on Flatlanders and Meredith lives down to their expectations of how a Flatlander should act. Marlon is a card carrying member of the Rednecks-R-Us club.
Can these two strangers put their differences aside and discover that true love hits you upside the head with a two by four when you least expect it?
I know what you thinking...Redneck Heaven? LOL..yeah we are talking about some place in Texas right? Well after reading it, there is a slight possibility that it could be a small town in Texas, minus the football fever that seems to thrive in every male from there. Meredith was a woman after my own heart. She one of those that buries herself in work in order to flash out real life. I can so connect with that and her way of dealing with issues. Meredith was not only a likable character, but one that was extremely realistic. She was, however popped out of her automatic cycle by one delicious looking redneck by the name of Marlon. He turned out to be the jump-start she needed to reclaiming who she once was.
Marlon was used to responsibility. He had been named the head of his household and his brothers ever since they were little. Work had be his only love and pleasure, with the exception of a few close friends. He built his company from the ground up, which left very little time for his personal life. Not to mention all of the problems his siblings gave him. But that all changed on the train ride to his sisters wedding. He saved a red-headed fireball from crashing into a mirror, never guessing that she would change his life forever.
This book rocked! Not only is Meredith armed with a firey temper, but her thoughts and quirky sense of humor are hilariously fresh! She was definitely my favorite character. Her interactions with the townspeople, and not to mention her fireman welcome had me rolling with laughter. This story had a lot of twists and turns and I must admit that I was completely shocked at the plot outcome. I didn't see it coming which made it a joy for me!! Meredith goes through a growing period after she moves and her sparkling personality is finally able to break free after being smothered for so long. She becomes a better version of herself and actually helps Marlon as well. It was a joyously delicious read..I would actually say it was Smokin Hot!! Hats off to you Mrs. Wallace!! I hope to read another book by you really soon!!
