“Spring for Susannah” fits that bill for this reader. I think what I loved the most about the novel, were the characters. Yes…all books have to have characters, but Susannah and Jesse were so loveable and completely charmed my heart- Jesse especially. Talk about a loveable hero! Susannah had so much growth to do and started out the book as a very meek heroine, but my goodness as the story progressed you saw HER progressing. The author trusted her reader to get it and I loved seeing the little subtleties all through the story that crescendoed into a character that could stand on her own two feet.
I sat in one place until this book was finished and I never once tired of reading. I snorted and giggled over the little bits of humor that added spice. The secondary characters are the perfect mix of level-headedness and quirky. I hope if there are more books we get more of them!
A sweet faith message, a loving romance and characters I won’t soon forget, this historical romance is that perfect antidote for cold days, the kind you want to curl up with and become lost within the pages.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers through Litfuse Publicity for my copy to review.
