Spotlight and Review: Love Starts Here by Traci Borum

About the Book:

Love Starts Here is the story of Jill McCallister, a mystery writer who discovers that her great-great-grandfather founded a small town in Texas, called Morgan’s Grove.  Eager to discover her roots in person, Jill drives from Colorado to Texas, curious to see where the journey will lead.
At first, Jill visits the town strictly for research; she’s not looking for love.  But when she meets Rick Wright, the mysterious, handsome businessman with trust issues, she can’t help falling for him—and for the town, itself. But soon, it’s time for Jill to return to her “real life” in Colorado.  And the closer Jill gets to Denver, the clearer it becomes—if she abandons Morgan’s Grove, she risks losing a treasured friendship, a lasting love, and a place to call home.  

About the Author: 
Traci Borum is a writing teacher and native Texan.  She's also an avid reader of women's fiction, most especially Elin Hilderbrand and Rosamunde Pilcher novels.  Since the age of 12, she's written poetry, short stories, magazine articles, and novels.

Traci also adores all things British.  She even owns a British dog (Corgi) and is completely addicted to Masterpiece Theater--must be all those dreamy accents!  Aside from having big dreams of getting a book published, it's the little things that make her the happiest:  deep talks with friends, a strong cup of hot chocolate, a hearty game of fetch with her Corgi, and puffy white Texas clouds always reminding her to "look up, slow down, enjoy your life." 

My Review: 
Love Starts Here, the first installment from A Morgan's Grove series. It is, also, my first introduction to Traci Borum’s writing. It definitely will not be the last. I enjoyed this book. I loved Jill from the start. As the family’s historian, I felt connected to her wanting to know her roots. I thought her and Rick had great chemistry and wanted to see how it play out for them. I found the story to be sweet and heartwarming. The setting of Morgan’s Grove was a perfect addition. It was fun and entertaining meeting everyone from the town.

I am giving Love Starts Here five plus stars. I look forward to more by this author and seeing what happens next in A Morgan’s Grove series.

I received this book from the Kindle Unlimited Program and was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
