Today I bring you a review by an author whose work I have read before and loved it.
“Saving Grace” written by Jess B. Moore, is the forth book in her Fox River series, and you know the author’s name because I read and review the other three books in the series: “The Guilt of a Sparrow”, “Fierce Grace” and “The Worth of a Penny”.
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Jess B. Moore for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Brandt Grace is trouble no matter what he says or does, always getting in his own way, and trying to prove he can do better and be better only to fall on his face. Saving Grace follows Brandt’s unintentional fall for Lola Donovan, the previously friendly girl turned quiet ghost of a girl. They connect at rock bottom, finding an unexpected source of strength in each other. Can they find a way to leave the past behind and build a future together?

Jess B. Moore is a writer of love stories. When she’s not writing, she’s busy mothering her accomplished and headstrong children, reading obscene numbers of books, and knitting scarves she’ll likely never finish.
Jess lives in small town North Carolina with her bluegrass obsessed family. She takes too many pictures of her cats, thinking the Internet loves them as much as she does. She is a firm believer of swapping stories over coffee or wine, and that there should always be dark chocolate involved.
The Guilt of a Sparrow is her debut novel combining her interests in family, music, and small towns into a thoughtful tale of growing up and falling in love. Her second book, Fierce Grace, follows similar themes in a whole new way, and can be read as a tie-in or stand-alone. The Worth of a Penny (sequel or stand-alone) released March 2019. Look forward to more books from Jess in the Fox River Romance series.

If you know me and my reviews, and if you have been following what I have been reading and reviewing, you probably know the author of this book and probably remember how much I loved her previous novels in this series. That been said, of course I loved this one as well. Jess B. Moore has never disappointed me with her stories.
As soon as I started reading I know I would be an emotional mess because of past experiences with this series. The characters and their background and all their fears and dreams are so real that I can’t control myself and end up falling in love with them, and feeling like I’m part of a big family.
The fact that the characters have flaws like anyone in the real made it possible for me to feel empathy as well as really hope for them. The entire series talks about lots of topics of our society that maybe aren’t really talked about, and that aspect of this book – as well as all the others – elevates the all story because it make us think. I can see myself talking to my friends about it (if they ever listen to my recommendations), and even rereading this novel over and over again, no matter the rollercoaster of emotions.
In Saving Grace we follow Lola Donovan and Brandt Grace, the story is told in both their POV and that helps us get a better understanding of what’s going on and I love that. I love their interactions and how they get to know one another better, because let’s be honest, I live in a small town, and we know everyone and their mothers and still we don’t really know each other, despite having been in school together for years when we were kids. People grow up, live gives them good and bad moments, we learn we suffer and we enjoy the happiness we have, and we change… because that happens!
That been said, yes, Lola and Brandt knew each other, but things change and it was good to see them discover things about each other and the relationship developing more than just two people that have always known each other and have physical attraction. So for me, it was fun to see the relationship grow.
And let me just say, on a funny note, I love tattoos so I wish I could really see Brandt’s artwork. I think that was really important to him, and I just wish I could see him at work.
Overall, I loved this book just as much as I did the previous one in the series. It was fun, emotional, thought provoking and in a good pace. I do recommend this novel, as well as the others, because although this book can be read as a standalone I suggest you read the three other books to get a full experience on the series and on Jess B. Moore’s writing.
