Palmetto Moon by Kim Boykin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kim Boykin.

First let me say, lovely cover.

I agreed to read this for a blog tour. And also for allowing me to read it via net Galley.

I really liked the concept of this story and I really loved how it developed. The blurb says it all really.

I don't like giving spoilers so I wont. I'm going to keep this review brief.

I had trouble sometimes piecing things together, I felt the author rushed a few things and left out some needed details.

There was a booth mentioned on a picnic? [I think] but where was the booth? Its not been mentioned prior to that or where they were. I got a little lost at times.

Just taking the pages and growing them more IMHO would make this a huge success. Those are the reasons I give it 3 stars. Good, but needs developing and expanding.

June, 1947. Charleston is poised to celebrate the biggest wedding in high-society history, the joining of two of the oldest families in the city. Except the bride is nowhere to be found…

Unlike the rest of the debs she grew up with, Vada Hadley doesn’t see marrying Justin McLeod as a blessing—she sees it as a life sentence. So when she finds herself one day away from a wedding she doesn’t want, she’s left with no choice but to run away from the future her parents have so carefully planned for her.

In Round O, South Carolina, Vada finds independence in the unexpected friendships she forms at the boarding house where she stays, and a quiet yet fulfilling courtship with the local diner owner, Frank Darling. For the first time in her life, she finally feels like she’s where she’s meant to be. But when her dear friend Darby hunts her down, needing help, Vada will have to confront the life she gave up—and decide where her heart truly belongs.
