Georgia Pine (Southern Promises Book 3) by K.G. Fletcher – Review by Karyn Taylor

Georgia Pine (Southern Promises #3)Georgia Pine by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Georgia Pine is yet another outstanding read from K.G. Fletcher. It is the 3rd book in the Southern Promises Series and I’ve loved all of them. All 3 books have a connection but can be read as a standalone as each is a complete story. I’d urge anyone to read all 3 books, not to help with any understanding of the story, but purely because this is a fantastic series that I’ve totally fell in love with and I know I’ll read them again.
In Book 2 we meet Stephen Kaufman who is Hart’s boss. We know that he’s a cheating scumbag with a beautiful wife and 4 gorgeous daughters. The book is the story of his, now ex-wife Jessica. Jessica is heartbroken by the breakdown of her marriage and is now doing everything she can to raise her 4 gorgeous daughters on her own.
Tim McGill is the gardener to the homes in the posh suburban area where Jessica lives. Hiding behind a beard and long hair, Tim is making a new life for himself, using a fake surname. In reality he’s Tim Ryan, huge star of the NFL whose mistake cost his side the Superbowl. When Tim catches Jessica having a breakdown the day her divorce papers arrive, he becomes her knight in shining armour, helping her with the girls.
As Tim and Jessica spend more time together they finally give in to the huge attraction they have for each other. This however causes a lot of friction in Jessica’s life. Her snobby parents and ex-husband are mortified that she’s lowered herself to be involved with such a lowlife as a gardener.
Again K.G. Fletcher has given us amazing characters. Jessica’s guts and determination to raise her little girls and make others see that Tim really is a good guy is endearing. Tim is just the most adorable man. The love he has for, and the way he treats her daughters makes my heart melt.
Will Tim’s secret get out? Will Tim and Jessica get the happily ever after that they deserve? I’m not going to answer those and spoil the story. Dig in and read for yourself and find out how it all ends.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Georgia Pine is the third book in K.G. Fletcher’s Southern Promises series. I have read the second book which was also my first read by this writer and I fell in love with her Southern story telling! I know now for sure I need to go and pick up also the first book (as it turns out our girl Jessica is friends with Katie who is the female main character in the first story of the series AND both Jessica and Tim love Georgia Clay music!)
Georgia Pine is the story of Jessica Kaufman – a mother to four young girls and just recently divorced from her hot shot cheating real estate mogul husband, and Tim McGill who is hiding out in Georgia and trying to rise like Phoenix from the ashes of his former celebrated career on the West Coast.
The story was heart-warming like Southern hospitality, I loved the simplicity and yet the complexity of the feelings of the two people who feel such a strong pull under the surface so you sit at the edge of your seat and keep your fingers crossed that Tim will learn to trust and open up to these little girls their mother and that Jessica will get her happily-ever-after!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Georgia Pine by KG Fletcher is the third book in her Southern Promises series and it just keeps getting better and better. Following the story of Jessica and Tim, you get to see these two characters grow closer and start a family together. Watching these characters throughout the series, from books one and two, you get to see the story being told from their eyes and how their lives have changed since coming together. Having fallen in love with Fletcher’s work from her previous series, and then loving the rest of this series, I knew that I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to read this one. While each of these books are written in a way that they could be read as a standalone, I totally recommend reading them in series order, Georgia Clay and Georgia on My Mind, as the characters really came alive for me across the books. If you are looking for a fantastic series that will take you in and never let go than this is the series for you!

Georgia On My Mind (Southern Promises Book 2) by K.G. Fletcher – Review by Karyn Taylor

Georgia On My Mind (Southern Promises #2)Georgia On My Mind by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Georgia On My Mind is the 2nd book in the Southern Promises series by K.G. Fletcher. Although part of a series, these books can be read as a standalone. I would however urge any reader to read the whole series as the first 2 books are fantastic. Having previously read other works by this author, she is definitely become a major favourite of mine.
Our hero in this book is Hartford Parker, brother of Katie who was the heroine of book 1, Georgia Clay. Hartford, or Hart as he’s better known, is living at his sister’s house in Atlanta, having been fired in disgrace from his high powered job. At a friend’s birthday he comes to the rescue of Gia Bates who is the Marilyn Monroe party entertainer. There’s an instant chemistry between the 2. Gia is struggling to keep her dance studio business afloat and is working as an impersonator to earn extra cash.
I really loved both of these characters. Gia is so head strong and will do everything to keep her business from going under. I loved her grit and determination. Hart is an adorable guy who just wants to everything he can to help her.
I would highly recommend this book (and the rest of the series) as they are amazing stories with equally amazing characters who will draw you in from the very first page.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Georgia Pine is book three in the Southern Promises series written by KG Fletcher. While it is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone. This was probably my favorite of the three stories and is Tim and Jessica’s story. Both have their own set of problems and issues and this great story is how they handle each issues along with moving forward. It has it’s surprising moments and moments of “no what are you doing?!”. overall the story is great and has a little bit if everything in it. The characters had issues you can relate to and the emotions they experienced are similar to real life scenarios.

Georgia Pine (Southern Promises #3)Georgia Pine by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

K.G. Fletcher’s third book in the Southern Promises series is Georgia Pine. This contemporary romances is yet another well tuned addition to this series. The author’s words from the first chapter draw you in, fitting you within the characters as they progress from chapter to chapter. The combination of characters for the male/female leads would not necessarily be ones I would pair together, yet they work – they work well. I enjoyed Tim’s story – it was emotional trying and there was a lot of growth from him in this book while learning more about himself, what he wants and needs in his life, along with looking for more than what he has. I will admit that he is definitely one of the best male characters I have read in quite a while. It takes a lot for a particular character to shine and K.G. Fletcher has delivered that in spades.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have personally read the first two books in the Southern Promises books by KG Fletcher, but they are written in a way that you could read them as standalone novels. I would recommend that you read them all though, and feel as if you will feel the same once you finish this one, and fall for Tim and Jessica as I have. They are great little romance reads to escape into, you can’t really go wrong.

Like I stated above, in Georgia Pine we get the story of Jessica and Tim. These two are just too darn perfect. I absolutely was enamored with them by the time I had finished the last page, and frankly I want more! Jessica is fresh off a difficult divorce and left to fend on her own for her and her four daughters. Learning to be a single mother a single woman is no easy feat. In swoops the brooding and handsome gardener, Tim. Tim has his own demons that he is hiding under his full beard, and even his name. There is so much more to him that she could ever know. But at the root of it all they have a spark. It is ignited and they are spun together into a fast developing love. Of course, life eventually catches up to everyone though. What will happen when the secrets come out? Can Jessica still love Tim? Will they be able to put the past behind them for good? You will have to pick up this little gem to find out for yourself!

Georgia Pine (Southern Promises Series Book #3) by K.G Fletcher – Review by Angela Hayes

Georgia Pine (Southern Promises #3)Georgia Pine by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Georgia Pine is the third (and Final) book in the Southern Promises Series by K.G Fletcher. I adore this series and can’t believe that it is finished! I really hope I am wrong because I am not ready to say goodbye to these fabulous characters and the wonderful stories that Ms. Fletcher has created. Each book slightly eclipses the last, making this a very memorable series. I didn’t think it would be possible for me to love a story or the characters more than I loved the last book, Georgia On My Mind (Hart and Gia’s story)- but once again Ms. Fletcher proved me wrong and had me falling in love with the story and the characters before I’d even got one chapter in- when she had me in tears before I had even gotten to the end of the first chapter, I knew I was in for an absolutely captivating story- and she certainly delivered everything I had hoped for, and more!
This book could be read as a standalone, but I can’t recommend the other books highly enough- they really are worth the read and help set the tone and feel for the series as a whole. We met Jessica in the previous book and my heart had ached for what she experienced- so I really wanted her to find true happiness in this book and I was intrigued to see what Ms. Fletcher had in store for her.
In this book we find Jessica a year on from the life changing events of the previous instalment. She’s newly divorced, still reeling, and quite lost. She’s had no time to really grieve for the end of her marriage as she has four adorable little girls who need her now more than ever. But she’s been struggling since her world fell apart and she’s not sure how to stitch it back together again and get everything back on track. She feels like she has failed her daughters and herself, as all her life she’d been expected to be perfect, her parents settling for nothing less from their beautiful daughter. She’d been the perfect daughter, the perfect cheerleader, the prefect sorority girl, the perfect friend, then the perfect wife and mother- but that was before her perfect world crumbled out from under her leaving her overwhelmed by disappointment and uncertainty- responsibility and expectation weighed heavily on her shoulders. Feeling extremely vulnerable and out of her depth, she gave in to her emotions, and was completely shocked when a tender giant came to her rescue. He brings some much-needed confidence and balance back into her life, and her world becomes brighter with him in it.
Tim McHill has had a huge fall from grace and has retreated across the country to live a simple life, keeping a low profile. He lives in the shadow of his former life expecting that his past will catch up with him eventually. He has no intention of letting anyone in, he’s purposely shut everyone out. But seeing this beautiful, broken young mother falling to pieces tugs at his battered heartstrings and brings out his caring and protective nature. He finds himself drawn into her life, bonding with her cute daughters in the process. All of a sudden, his life has new meaning and he looks forward to the future. But what happens when his secret is discovered? When mother nature throws a dangerous curve-ball, will they find a way through the storm, or will it destroy any chance of a future? What happens when his true identity is revealed for the world to see? All this and more can be discovered between the covers of this delightful book!
The story is soooo romantic- very touching, heart-warming, emotional, funny, suspenseful, heart-stopping, sweet, adorable, passionate, and fun. Like the other two books in the series, this is really well written, and the characters are so endearing, I became hooked right from the beginning. It was so easy to read that I zipped through it in a few hours. These complex characters had me so emotionally invested in them and their wonderful story- they really had a beautiful connection and incredibly sizzling chemistry- their story is full of sexy, steamy and swoon worthy details that really sizzled off the pages. Then there were the adorable girls who added an extra element of adorableness to the whole story. I loved how Tim connected with them right away and how wonderful he was with them- it made my heart go pitter-pat!! But there was also a bit of a mystery to the story, with Tim’s past- and some danger, suspense and a little drama were added, which took this story to a whole new exciting level!
This is such a brilliant addition to the series, and most definitely my pick of the three. I really hope we get to see more of these characters in the future- I would love to read Stuart’s story, and Jacques and Elizabeth’s story also. Hint, Hint- Ms. Fletcher!!
TOUCHDOWN!!!

Thank you, Ms. Fletcher!

Georgia Pine (Southern Promises #3)Georgia Pine by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Georgia Pine by KG Fletcher is the third book in the Southern Promises Series. Each book in the series just gets better and better. Jessica and Tim have some flammable chemistry that is very hot. Tim is not revealing his past to Jessica because it could cause problems. Is Jessica willing to wait till Tim is ready to share his past history?

The writing in Georgia Pine is engaging, flows and is very descriptive. It keeps you reading from the first page through the last. Georgia Pine takes you on a bumpy emotional roller coaster ride. The characters are well developed, very real and easy to connect with. I cannot wait to see what happens next in the series. I highly recommend Georgia Pine!
