Weary of the expectations imposed on her by her strict upbringing, eighteen-year-old Mazy Pelfrey prepares to leave her home in the Kentucky mountains for the genteel city of Lexington, where she’ll attend secretarial school. She knows her life is about to change—and only for the better. Everything will be blue skies from now on.
But business school is harder than she thought it would be and the big city not as friendly, until she meets a charming young man from a wealthy family, Loyal Chambers. When Loyal sets his sights on her, Mazy begins to see that everything she’d ever wished to have is right before her eyes. The only hindrance to her budding romance is a former beau, Chanis Clay, the young sheriff she thought she’d left firmly behind.
Danger rumbles like thunder on a high mountain ridge when Mazy’s cosseted past collides with her clouded future and forces her to come to terms with what she really wants.
Okay first things first, I love the cover! Just one look at it was enough for me to want it! Look at it yourself, isn't it gorgeous!?!
But, back to my review.
Buttermilk Sky by Jan Watson was a beautifully written book. This author just has a way with words, let me tell you! But throughout the whole book I had trouble connecting with these main characters. I didn't mind them but there was nothing that really truly grabbed at me with them. I don't know why but I just didn't feel them. If this book were written by anyone else I would have set it down and quickly forgotten about it. But its not written by just anyone, its written by Jan and she is amazing! And that was why I couldn't put this book down. Which says a lot about her writing because usually with me if I don't like the main characters I don't like the book no matter how good the plot is.
So that said while I would like to give this book 5 stars (for the amazing writing talent!) I can't because of my dislike for the main characters.
3.8 out of 5 . A wonderfully crafted Afternoon Snack.
I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review.
