Leaving Oxford by 

About The Book

Escaping home to Oxford, Mississippi, seemed like a good idea. Until it wasn’t. 

A year after a tragic accident in Los Angeles flipped her world upside down, advertising guru Sarah Beth LeClair is still hiding away in her charming hometown of Oxford, Mississippi. And she may well be stuck there forever. Suffering from panic attacks, she prays for healing. Instead, her answer comes in the form of an arrogant football coach and an ugly puppy. 

Former celebrity college quarterback Jess McCoy dreamed of playing pro football. One freak hit destroyed his chances. Although he enjoys his work as the university’s offensive coordinator, his aspirations have shifted to coaching at the highest level. His plans of moving up are finally coming together—until he falls for a woman who won’t leave town.

My Review

When I first started the book I found myself asking a lot of questions, mainly what was Sarah Beth’s experience that made her this way? It was just my lack of patience wanting to know the whole story up front. As I continued reading I found that I loved the way Sarah Beth’s story was presented. Every so often you got a flashback chapter, but instead of having it as if she was telling a story, it was written as if it was happening currently so you got to experience what Beth was feeling during those times. Little by little it started coming together and I understood how she got to be the way she is today. I appreciated the author taking her time in sharing this back story. 

I loved Jess’s character. He was such a gentlemen and was patient, kind, and willing to just listen to Sarah Beth without cutting in. He was so gentle with her which is exactly what she needed to move forward in her life. I thought the author did a great job describing his character and bringing him to life.

I cannot wait to read the next book, Going Up South! I hope you’ll read it too! Come back on Monday to see my review and there just might be a giveaway! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
