Product description

About the Author

An award-winning author, Jackie Weger has been writing romance novels off and on for thirty years. In between novels and attending university Jackie has traveled to many interesting and exotic locales from London and Paris to Panama and Costa Rica. She has sailed on a twenty-nine foot sloop in the Pacific, volunteered at a Sisters of Mercy Mission in Colon, canoed on the Big East River in the wilds of Canada and lived part of a winter with trappers in the Louisiana swamps—collecting memories, friends and experiences—which oft times make appearances in her novels. Self-publishing is a new adventure. Says Weger: “I won’t say it’s a safe adventure because half the time I don’t know what I’m doing. But, at least I don’t have carry a machete or keep snake gun handy.”

Eye of the Beholder Jackie Weger .

Arc supplied by author.

I love romance but there are now so many duo's and trilogies, many ending on horrible cliffhangers that I'm feeling a bit fed up of it all, so was really thankful to receive three standalone novels from Jackie for review. At one time this was the norm, but since fifty shades it seems that writing romance in sections has become popular. That may be fine for some - but I know from comments on my reviews that there are many, many readers fed up with that, especially when we aren't warned ahead of purchase, and who want stand alones, where we get the whole story, not one in parts where we wait months for next bit at unspecified price.
Anyway - this is my first read of Jackie's books, and I really enjoyed it. It was fresh and unusual, something a bit different from the norm of contemporary romances around. Its set in a time past - I'm not sure how US works but if it was set in UK I'd guess at 1930's or thereabouts, a time when you could work for cash daily, and renting a home or room was far simpler.
The description tells a good synopsis so I won't repeat it. Phoebe; what a great lead. Strong and wiry, she loves her family, works hard and has a fierce pride. I loved her. She's one of those tough on the outside people who have a hidden soft, self concious centre. I felt for her so much when she worked so hard, and Gage gave one of his cryptic put downs, and when her hard work and plans went awry. I even cried towards the end when all began to fall apart on her through no fault of her own, it was a very emotional section.

The first thing that struck me in Jackie Weger's Eye of the Beholder was the brilliant dialogue, and by brilliant I mean realistic and true to life. I'm not from the South, but I've lived South of the Mason-Dixon line for the last 20 years, and Weger captures the rhythm and dialect of a proud but poor Southern woman, Phoebe Hawley, with verisimilitude. I reckon I could listen to Phoebe talk all day, and today, I did. I read Eye of the Beholder practically in one sitting.

And for me, that's saying a lot. I don't have much time to read. Moreover, I don't usually read romances, but I'd heard great things about Weger's work, so I decided to give this novel a try, and I'm sure glad I did.

Phoebe is a hotheaded, hard-working redhead who is desperate to provide for her siblings. Desperate to find a better way. She ends up running into (quite literally) a similarly-hardworking, proud widower, and from the very first moment Phoebe and Gage Morgan meet, they argue like crabs tossing around in a boiling pot. Eventually, they quit fighting, because this is a romance, but it's also one with a conclusion I found believable.

I'd be amiss if I did not comment on two more things: the writing is as solid as the plot is well-constructed. And the editing is professional, both on a developmental level and a copy edit level.

An enthusiastic five stars from me.

Phoebe Hawley is a no-nonsense type of heroine. She is smart and sassy in her country ways and has a lot of responsibilities on her shoulders right now. Her character is well developed and likeable, although some of her methods are a bit underhanded. Maydean is a hoot, she provided a lot of unneeded stress for Phoebe, bless her little pre-teen heart; Ms. Weger had her down well. Everything that came out of this little spit-fire's mouth I could hear coming from my own daughters. (Pre-teen girls are a trial in and of themselves.) Willie-Boy was a typical five-year-old boy and provided a lot of comic relief and was a blessing to have around.

Gage Morgan is a handsome widower with a hard heart, and wasn't a character easy to like at first. As we learn about his character it was easy to understand why he had built a wall around his heart to protect it. His relationship with his daughter, Dorie, was another matter altogether, it made me wonder if he was worth the effort to get to know at all. However, Phoebe sees potential in this brash hardworking junkyard owner. One of my favorite things about this book was the heartwarming relationship that develops between Dorie, a lonely little girl who misses her mother, and Phoebe.

There is a light Christian theme that runs through Phoebe's upbringing that is not too in-your-face. I thought it fit with her character and she wasn't trying to convert anyone. A typical example is this passage.

She went onto the porch and stared up into the noonday sun until a kaleidoscope of colors blocked out true vision. Prudence, temperance, and fortitude swelled within her. Being noble was doing God's work, certain, she thought. Ma would be so proud.

"Whatcha doing standing out in the sun like that, Phoebe?
