The Nearness of You
5 out of 5 stars
I thought I had recently become a really big fan of KG Fletcher’s writing, hooked on her stand alone Southern Promises series. When I stumbled across The Nearness of You it was a no brainer that I had to give this romance a chance too. As usual, I was far from disappointed but I realized just how much I was missing about KG Fletcher! What I do know is that KG Fletcher has a knack for creating characters you can’t help but love, they’re realistic, relatable and the kind of people you can’t help but root for.
What I’ve somehow been missing is KG Fletcher’s musical talent and the way she incorporates music and lyrics into her romance novels. I have always been someone that is drawn to the lyrics of a song so while I was looking over the amazing playlist from The Nearness of You and taking in the musical inspiration for Lauren and David’s story I was impressed to see a Cabernet act as well, incredible!
You didn’t come here for a review of the author so I’ll get back to the point! Lauren and David’s story gripped me from the very beginning with the realistic interaction between the two of them,
Lauren’s personality is so real you feel as though you’re just observing an old friend and KG Fletcher’s attention to detail really sets the perfect tone for this story, making you feel like you’re right in the midst of everything.
The Nearness of You is the perfect combination of romance and twists and turns in all the right places, with conflict that is realistic and writing that keeps the pages turning until the early morning hours. I swear I’ve read each of these author’s books in record time, they’re the kind you just don’t want to put down. I am looking forward to reading the last two books on my to be read list by this author and I will be highly recommending the Nearness of You next time I’m asked for a book recommendation…
