Small Town Hero (Small Town Brides, #1)Small Town Hero by Kim Koby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about kindness. After finding out her fiancée cheated on her, Rebecca runs away in her car with no destination in mind. When her car breaks down, a local man Ryan comes to her rescue. She is hesitant at first, as a stranger in a new town, but soon realises there are little other options in the middle of nowhere. While her car is being fixed, she stays at his house for a few days. Will her time there make her think things through?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Rebecca’s harsh exterior but kind nature underneath or Ryan doing the right thing and supportive nature. Also a sweet dog called Chief who will melt your heart.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with Ryan’s little house small but full of colour with gravel path and the garden and kitchen as a cosy place or the calming natural imagery in scenes on the back porch under the stars as a safe space away from it all. I also loved the use of contrasts throughout the novel like city and country, New Jersey and Tennessee, busy and quiet or dressy and casual wear which were combined to perfection to display the differences between the two. and amde for a captivating read. The only issue i would raise is that sometimes the dialogue was repetitive and I felt a conflict int he middle such as the mechanics not having parts or something would have made the ending stronger. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.
