Reviews and Awards

Amazon Review: Gotta grab this book and read it. This is a really good what I call clean romance. Lots of southern loving in all the right way. Exactly what I expected and received from Jan Scarbrough, I am happy to say!

“How this couple found their happily ever after led us down several roads with lots of turns. I knew they would end up together, but I couldn’t have imagined how. My love of Ms. Scarbrough’s work has only increased after reading this book. She is quickly becoming a must read for me. I highly recommend this book to everyone.” – Reviewer: Brenda Talley
