Life has it's ups and downs for the Sweeneys. Ashley loves to hear from her readers. Lowcountry Stranger is the first book that I have read by Ashley Farley. Another marriage; more drama, most of it good and surrounding the wedding; a move; a diva; teen issues; and some who low about their true intentions and who they really are. I want the Sweeney family to adopt me.
I didn't read the first novel, and when I started Lowcountry Stranger I feared that I would be lost. Why did she crash the wedding? The second book tells us what happened the past year and that there is a stranger who crashes the wedding. But emerging complications, some humorous and some not so humorous, threaten to converge and derail the best-laid plans during the busy stretch between Thanksgiving and Christmas. If her story stays with you long after you've read the last word, then she's done her job. I didn't find the characters compelling.
A picture-perfect evening for Faith and Mike to begin their new lives together. There's a stranger in town. There are still some problems that need to be addressed for each sister, but it makes them better women for it by the end of the book. The southern charm of the setting, combined with the closeness of the Sweeney clan, gives this novel a healthy dose of grace and family, as well as a couple of subplots that bring the tough kind of forgiveness to the forefront. She's a self-professed Whovian, as well as a Supernatural, and Sherlock Holmes junkie, She enjoys sharing books, tips, recipes and hosting the. See my full review at Based on the first Sweeney Sisters book, I expected better. This time there is a wedding, two funerals, a lot of healing and self searching, growth, change and enough drama to overwhelm any one person.
You know where I stand on the issue of marriage. Sam has her own demons to fight and does confront a few during the book can't give away too much! Jackie, oh how she has changed. Lowcountry Stranger by Ashley Farley is the second novel in the Sweeney Sisters series. But it is what it is for the Sweeneys and the subplot may or may not play out the way you think it will. The sun shimmered off the high tide on the inlet, casting Moss Creek Farm in a pale glow. I was truly disappointed to see the story come to an end.
Middle sister Sam is a single mom who raised her college-aged son Jamie on her own. Some families never resolve conflicts. Strong family, small town idioms, faith, trust, love, recovery and commitment are all weaved into a tale that offered a nice dose of suspense. Faith was getting married to a doctor. The sisters seek guidance from their mother, Lovie, a true Southern matriarch who shows them how to respond to adversity with grace and dignity. Highly recommend The second instalment of the Sweeney Sisters series did not disappoint.
Her hair was matted and tangled, and her chocolate eyes overpowered her too-thin face. Members of the Sweeney family, young and old, chart their courses for the future in this final installment of the bestselling Sweeney Sisters Series. Some of the book links in my posts are Amazon affiliate links. Regardless, I will never recommend that you purchase a product just because I get a percentage back. Their fears and insecurities are so trivial and insignificant, honestly, all a bit boring and very deja-vu. Faith nurtures her seven-year- old daughter who is recovering from the trauma of her abusive father. There is also a distinct emphasis on values I cherish.
From dying friends, to long lost husbands, to abducted children, to love lost but found again. They fell in line behind the throng of wedding attendees and slowly made their way to the tent. They were really worried about her. Her own worst enemy, Sam is terrified of making a commitment to Eli Marshall, handsome police officer, true love of her life. I love it when you're reading a book and suddenly gasp in amazement. Is anybody ready for some refreshments? I look forward to the next edition.
This is my first book by Ashley Farley, and I really loved the way she writes. Before the night is over, the doe-eyed waif charms young and old with her street smarts and spunky personality. If there were hiccups or blips on tenses, or other grammatical errors, I sure did not catch them. I really enjoyed this book, so much that I stayed up way to late to finish the book. For better or worse, Annie Dawn is here to stay. When a bedraggled teenage girl Annie shows up at the wedding, the Sweeney sisters reluctantly take her in after she tells them she was traveling with a family she was working for when they abandoned her and took off. Things are heating up in the Lowcountry.
