The Kissing Tree by Prudence Bice
After five long years, Georgiana McLaughlin returns to the only place she’s ever considered home—the same place she stole a kiss from Ridge Carson under the community “kissing tree.” But this time he’s a man, and reconciling their past is just the beginning. You’ll find yourself applauding each new chapter filled with fun, romance, and adventure in this captivating, heartfelt tale of love, friendship, and finding your way back.
This is one of those books I think I would enjoy even more as an audiobook, partly because of its narrative style of storytelling, and partly because I love to hear the Irish brogue spoken much more than I like to read it. But as could easily happen, the dialect doesn't get in the way of the fluid narration, and only enhances the setting and the difficulty of the choices Georgie has to make.
The Kissing Tree is both squeaky clean and well-developed, a sometimes difficult feat. It is a character-driven but delightfully told story. I recommend The Kissing Tree to anyone who enjoys a lighthearted and uplifting read.
