She’s all about going green. Could he be her white knight—or will he make her see red?
Tree-huggin’, animal-lovin’ Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan is on a mission. Well, two. First she has to come to terms with being a widow at thirty-three. After all, it’s been four years and even her five-year-old niece and nephew think it’s time she shed her widow’s weeds. Second, she needs to find a buyer for her family’s estate—a Biltmore-inspired mansion surrounded by hundreds of acres of unspoiled forestland. With family obligations forcing the sale, Bridget is determined to find an eco-friendly developer to buy the land, someone who won’t turn it into single-family homes or a cheesy theme park.
Enter J. C. Dirk, a high-energy developer from Atlanta whose green property developments have earned him national acclaim. When he doesn’t return her calls, Bridget decides a personal visit is in order. Unfortunately, J. C. Dirk is neither amused nor interested when she interrupts his meeting—until she mentions her family name. In short order, he finds himself in North Carolina, and Bridget has her white knight—in more ways than one. But there are things Bridget doesn’t know about J. C., and it could mean the end of everything she’s worked for…and break her heart.

Wonderful Read!ユーザー レビュー - Christianbook.com
Restless in Carolina is the third book in a series called Southern Discomfort. I will start by saying that you do not necessarily need to read the first two books in the series in order to read this one. I have yet to read, these first two books, but I can say that they are definitely on my list to pick up. The reason for this is because of my general curiosity into more depth into this endearing cast of characters. This third installment of the Southern Discomfort series tells the story of one of the Pickwick family members, Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan. Bridget is a very colorful and relatable character. Her struggles are very real; grieving and healing from the loss of her husband, and coming to terms with happy endings. This book is highly recommended. It will make you laugh along with its quirky village of characters and route for them as well. Tamara Leigh knows how to make characters that are relatable and weave a story that keeps you guessing in between laughter and struggle. Note: I have received a free copy of this book from Multnomah Publishers in exchange for a review.
A Quirky, Fun Bookユーザー レビュー - Christianbook.com
Restless in Carolina is the first book I have read by Tamara Leigh. Although not completely necessary, I would have liked to have read the first two books of the series before this book because I think it would have been more enjoyable to have known the back-story of some of the secondary characters. When I first started reading Restless in Carolina I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. Bridget and I have little in common. She's environmentally minded, loves the outdoors, loves all types of animals (even opossums - she has one as a pet!) and did I mention she has dreadlocks? Yeah, definitely not like me. And not the type of character I am used to reading about, but I grew to like her. I thought that Restless in Carolina was a well written, easy-to-read book that wasn't overly descriptive but kept to the story. I also thought the characters were well written. Plus, I liked that J.C. Dirk was said to resemble the actor Simon Baker from the Mentalist - one of my favorite shows : ) Overall, I really enjoyed Restless in Carolina and look forward to reading more from Tamara Leigh.
