#Review ~ The Nearness of You by Dorothy Garlock
It has been a really long time since I have had the chance to read a book by Dorothy Garlock. When I started reading , I quickly remembered why I loved her work. This is a wonderful story with characters that quickly became friends.
Lily Denton is a smart, strong, young lady that loves her father. She wants to make him proud. She lost her mother at a very young age. She has not had an easy life and she has always dreamt of living in the big city, New York City. Lily always tries to do the "right" thing in life. She truly is the classic "good girl".
Boone Tatum is an awesome photographer and has traveled the world to use his talent to tell the latest stories with his camera. He sets out to take a picture and finds himself in some hot water. His punishment is a trip to middle of nowhere, Hooper's Crossing to take pictures of their fall festival. He also has to take a new reporter with him. Clive is thrilled with their adventure to Hooper's Crossing. Boone's goal is to get in, get some pictures, let Clive write a quick piece to with the pictures, and get out and on to the next exciting assignment.
It's not long and he finds himself not wanting to leave Hooper's Crossing quite so quickly. Everything changes when Boone meets an incredibly lady by literally bumping into her. He's instantly taken with Lily and sets out get to know her better. I loved watching Boone and Lily get to know each other. They have such a strong instant connection and attraction to each other. Lily takes Boone on a few adventures to assist him with his assignment.
There is some drama and suspense included in this wonderful story that had my heart beating faster and my fingers flipping the pages just as quickly as I could. I just could not wait to see how my "new friends" were going to find their way out of the dangerous situation they find themselves in. I don't want to tell you too much because you are going to want to enjoy this fantastic story for your self.
If you enjoy a sweet romantic story with friendship, drama, suspense, and family issues all in the perfect amounts then you need to grab this story now! If you are a fan of Dorothy Garlock then you are in for a treat. If you haven't had a chance to read her work for a while, like me, I think you are going to enjoy her story telling talent as much as I did.
I was given the opportunity to read this fantabulous story and it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you.
