Back when Tess Redding was queen bee of her girlfriends, the Sweethearts, smooth-talking rebel Flynn Garvey broke her heart. Now it looks like he's going to do it again.
The characters had both humor and style. The southern flavor was a very nice touch. The girlfriends were just like a group of friends I would have known in college. I loved that their lives were not neatly packaged or overwrought with tragedy. The lovers, Flynn and Tess, were not one bit sappy but bright and funny. That they came off in the end better people than they were in the beginning really brought this book together.
This was a terrific introduction for me into romance novels and to this author. Buy this book and be prepared to fall in love!
Fourteen years later, the Sweethearts are back in their hometown of Mount Circe, now on the map because of Tess' popular magazine, Simply Southern. Taking advantage of Simply Southern, the residents have turned Mount Circe into a 1960s simplistic genteel southern tourist attraction. However, now Flynn also returns home after successfully assisting women and children with receiving payments from deadbeat dads. Tess tries to avoid Flynn until she realizes that he is her only source of safety from someone trying to harm the Sweethearts for their youthful mistakes.
Fans of Southern novels will enjoy Luanne Jones's tale, SWEETHEARTS OF THE TWILIGHT LANES. The story line centers on Simply Southern living through the four women and their extended family. Tess is a strong individual who readers will like, but the remaining Sweethearts pale next to her. Flynn is a silent stoic hero who makes hearts flutter. Ms. Jones has written a warm regional romance that provides the audience a taste of the south.
