Ozark Sweetheart by Helen Gray

My book review today is on the Heartsong Presents book Ozark Sweetheart by Helen Gray. I wasn't sure I was going to like this book. I don't usually like books on the Depression. My parents told me so many horror stories about that time but I did like this one. It was handled in a very decent way. I love the idea of people in the communities sharing what they had to trade with each other leaving everyone's pride in tact.

Callie Blake experiences a trauma in the city. Feeling like her life is in danger Callie runs home. Her family is struggling to survive when a cold blooded killer follows her home. He walks up to her brothers and asks them their names then shoots one of them in the  chest. The shooter runs off but attempt to kill Callie and her other brothers. Callie is struggling to help her family through the Depression. Callie was very aware of how poor her family had become and refuses to date her high school crush.

Trace Gentry is a successful car dealer. He is a sworn bachelor, he had a wonderful relationship that ended when the women died, and then he had a relationship where she wanted his money and prestige.
Trace loves the way Callie tries to help the community and her family. Trace didn't care about how poor she and her family was, he saw her heart and thought she'd become beautiful. Caliie's refusal to go out with him led him to find inventive ways to get her to go places with him.

Check out the book, it is a great love story. I know you will enjoy this book. God bless you all.
