Blog Tour: Leaving Carolina by Tammy Leigh Book Review:


Leaving Carolina


I was excited to get this book.. I had never read any of Tamara Leigh’s books, but this one looked really good. I was very happy with this read. I was quickly able to get into it. Piper reminded me of myself at times, eager to runway from your home…but, in the end its where you always belong. Overall, loved this book! I will absolutely be looking for more of her books to read!


Piper Wick left her hometown of Pickwick , North Carolina , twelve years ago, shook the dust off her feet, ditched her drawl and her family name, and made a new life for herself as a high-powered public relations consultant in LA. She’s even “engaged to be engaged” to the picture-perfect U.S. Congressman Grant Spangler.

Now all of Piper’s hard-won happiness is threatened by a reclusive uncle’s bout of conscience. In the wake of a health scare, Uncle Obadiah Pickwick has decided to change his will, leaving money to make amends for four generations’ worth of family misdeeds. But that will reveal all the Pickwicks’ secrets, including Piper’s.

Though Piper arrives in Pickwick primed for battle, she is unprepared for Uncle Obe’s rugged, blue-eyed gardener. So just who is Axel Smith? Why does he think making amends is more than just making restitution? And why, oh why, can’t she stay on task? With the Lord’s help, Piper is about to discover that although good PR might smooth things over, only the truth will set her free.

Looks good! I look forward to picking this up : )

And speaking of good reads! I think you would really love a book I wrote called 'Knickles and Dimes'. It's a really fun chicklit, with hilarious characters and a great story. Check it out!

Thanks for the review!
