Just the Way You Are by Pepper Basham


Single mom, Eisley Barrett, prefers to keep romance housed within a centuries-old mystery, but when she travels to England to unearth the secret, an actor with a sordid past offers her heart a very different type of discovery.

Wes Harrison has a past he’s ashamed to confess. Suspicious and cynical, he’s managed to avoid romantic entanglements since a tragedy upended his career and life, that is until American Eisley Barrett comes along. Her authenticity and kindness upend his bitter assumptions and send his heart into unscripted territory.

When his past threatens to ruin a second chance at love, can some Appalachian matchmaking and letters from the grave salvage their unexpected romance?

My Thoughts:

Delightful, charming, hilarious, romantic…gush, gush, gush. This book had a little bit of everything I enjoy in a contemporary romance novel. I loved Eisley! She was so kind hearted and down to earth and just so funny! I loved that she said whatever came to mind! Wes was the perfect swoon worthy hero! How can you not fall for a handsome BBC actor? I loved that these characters were both flawed and had personal things to overcome during this story. I felt like the growth in these characters was gradual and natural and just made them so much more genuine. I enjoyed the added interest of the mystery of Eisley’s ancestors. It was like a treasure hunt with a few twists and turns. Also my hatred for Vivian runs deep. If you have read this book you know what Im saying, if you haven’t, read it and we’ll talk. This was charming from start to finish and I love a book that is loaded with humor. Anxiously awaiting the release of the second book in this series (fingers crossed) in the Spring! I highly recommend you grab this book, clear your evening and binge read it cover to cover. Caution, it will likely cause a book hangover and you will need a few days to move on.
