Somewhere, TX Book 6

by R.L. Syme, Lavender Daye

Joe Walker made a bet. His friends want him to date a frumpy librarian for at least a month, and while Joe is less than keen, he needs the carrot they offer. Almost a hundred thousand dollars to be invested in his business.

Krista considers herself to be a serious woman, a master’s graduate, a librarian… and she has a plan for the children of Somewhere, TX. When Joe approaches her, insisting they should date, she knows him by reputation. He’s not the kind of man a librarian should date. But in person, he proves to be more persuasive than she anticipated, and she soon finds herself agreeing to a month of Sundays.

Joe’s friends are convinced they can turn him from a playboy into a serious adult, but he’s not going to play by the rules…. none of them…

This book is a follow-up to our first boxed set, TEXAS SUNRISE.

Another small Texas town romance, A Month of Sundays is sweet, fun and charming. It’s got that close community feeling – everyone in your business but it is done with caring and love – which is one of my favorites.   It’s a fast read and my only complaint is that I wish it had more pages so I could have enjoyed their romance longer.

Joe and Krista complement each other so well. He needs someone to show him a real relationship and she needs someone to remind her what it is like to have fun.  But it isn’t all a good time – as they go on their “dates” they get to see the people underneath and unearth some long-festering issues that need to be brought to the light of day. They soon discover though that if they can confront their troubles, a lifetime of happiness could be theirs for the taking.

(Even though once again I started a series in the middle, I don’t think it made much of a difference. There were a few relationships between the characters that I think I was supposed to understand better, but it didn’t impact Joe & Krista’s story.)
