Small town heroes and big town hearts.
Jefferson Lee Davis is happy with his life in the city until his favorite uncle has a bad fall and he rushes to Holly Creek to make sure Uncle Sherman is okay. Jefferson Lee knows how to navigate small Southern town’s politics and the residents greet him with open arms. Everyone but the town’s sheriff, Zane Yarbrough, that is.
Dogwood Days, the town’s biggest festival is looming, so Jefferson has to step up and take over his uncle’s job as the town blogger, even if that puts him right in the sheriff’s path. Quirky neighbors, meddling family, and a sassy best friend all come together to make Jefferson Lee’s life in Holly Creek a full-time adventure. When he loses his job back in the city, Jefferson Lee has to start a new job search that will take him away from the town he’s learning to think of as home. Will this big city boy find sweet romance in the arms of a small town sheriff or will the allure of the city call him back?
Jefferson Lee Davis, Holly Creek’s new Director of Publicity, is gearing up for the next big town event, the summer Rose Festival. The job is running smoothly, but the course of true love has hit a rocky patch. His hunky boyfriend, Sheriff Zane Yarbrough, is receiving mysterious phone calls he doesn’t want to discuss. While Jefferson Lee is blindsided by jealousy, the second shoe drops with the appearance of a handsome stranger in the small tight-knit community. Needing answers, Jefferson Lee enlists his best gal-pal Clover Crofton to help find out what secrets Zane is hiding. When they land themselves in more trouble than Jefferson Lee bargained for, he and Zane face the first big test of their relationship. Zane and Jefferson Lee must work through their trust issues if they’re going to make it as a couple, and Clover may just have a thing or two to learn herself.
When Jefferson Lee comes back to his small town to help his Uncle Sherman with his blog he doesn’t realize his life will change in a big way! First, he seems to find trouble at every turn – including catching the eye of the sherriff, Zane.
Next, his blogging is a hit, but his ideas for the town stir up old resentments.
When Zane keeps showing up to check up on Sherman, he ends up spending time with Jefferson Lee. It seems everyone but Jefferson realizes Zane has an interest in the nephew not the uncle.

This is the sequel to Dogwood Days and pretty much takes off where book one left off.
Jefferson Lee Davis is still dating the hot sheriff Zane and things are beginning to look serious between the two of them.
There is some drama surrounding the town’s annual festival that Jefferson manages to create into a big hub-bub, and a mysterious “friend” of Zane’s comes into town stirring all kinds of jealousy in Jefferson Lee.
The two fight a bit – Zane asks Jefferson Lee to move in but Jefferson’s not ready and Jefferson realizes he doesn’t trust Zane or vice versa when it comes to the mysterious stranger. But… the two manage to figure things out and we get a lot of ooey gooey sweet and sexy lovin’ between the two as their saga continues.
These are light, fun and quirky romances that focus on a small town with a dash of romance between Jefferson Lee and Zane. It’s funny, sweet and literally angst-free!
Jefferson Lee is just a clueless sweetheart who needs a swift kick before he realizes what’s right in front of him, even when it’s practically gift-wrapped!
I highly recommend this to fans of “light and fluffy” romances, fans of the small town, fans of “clueless MCs” and anyone looking for a breath of fresh air!
Though we get the idea that Zane and Jefferson Lee are an “item” it’s still more of a HFN – but still quite Happy!

Matt Armstrong is a new narrator to me, and he’s fantastic! He does a really great job with the southern accents and all the female characters. If you’ve enjoyed the books you’ll love this audiobook!
