Buttermilk Sky

Buttermilk Sky
Jan Watson
Mazy is in secretary school in Lexington. It has been her dream to leave the mountains and explore what life has to offer outside of her small town. But it's hard to make the right decisions when your heart is confused. She has two handsome men who seem to want her, and yet each one has something that is holding her back. Can she trust God and her heart to lead her in the right direction?

This book has some definite pros and cons for me. The story started out very slowly and didn't really give me any insight into either of the two main characters. I felt like I was jumping into the middle of a story without all of the facts. Mazy is a bit too sweet and doesn't seem to have any flaws at all. The majority of the story is about her and her room mates and doesn't really get into her life decisions or love life. I did enjoy reading about a couple of the secondary characters and several of the stories that involved Chanis and his police work were entertaining. In fact, I would have enjoyed reading more of this instead of the main plot. But the story ended very abruptly with no real ending. Then the epilogue tried to tie everything up, but left so much unsaid that I was a bit confused.  I like the author's voice enough that I'm willing to try another book by her, but this isn't a favorite.

I received this book free of charge from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
