I am super excited to be able to talk about this particular book. I don’t really watch Duck Dynasty, but I do love what they stand for. It was really neat to read Jep and Jessica’s story, especially since they are the least known about in the family, having only appeared on the show since season four. Readers will love this read because it’s as if you are in one of their backyard bonfires and they’re personal friends.

Why have I never heard of Dorothy Love before? Love has a unique sense of storytelling that keeps the pages turning. Normally historical romance is a hit or a miss with me. I loved it! It’s filled with so much mystery, romance, and characters who want more out of their lives. All of the hard work and research that Love put into writing shines through. Highly recommended!
