A Storm Within by Jessica L. Degarmo ~ Book Review

Title: The Storm Within (A Johns Creek Second Chances Novel)
Publisher: Taylor Street Publishing
Publish Date: September 11, 2011

Book Description

Johns Creek, New York, deep winter, and Amanda Pickett is all alone in her remote house when a violent storm erupts, devastating the neighborhood, and bringing a tree crashing down against her back door, leaving her in the freezing cold and complete darkness when the power supply is cut.

As she becomes ever more frightened and isolated by her predicament, there is a knock at the door. Amanda screams, but the visitor turns out to be Raif Weston, a very handsome off-duty fireman come to rescue her and the other residents of Johns Creek.

They attempt to get to the shelter where the residents are being evacuated, but the storm is so fierce that they only get a short way down the road before they hit a tree and are forced to turn back, and so they both end up trapped in Amanda's house.

"So, now that you have me here, what are you going to do with me?" Raif asks.

…. and the storm begins for real.

My thoughts

This was a wonderful story of the trials and tribulations of real life. This was not just a typical story of love and romance. It definitely had the more true to life aspects. Amanda and Raif's storyline was so easy to read, the words just seem to jump off the page. It definitely drew me into the book. There was a little bit a drama which there always is drama in everybody's life now and again.

This is the first book I have read by this Author, Jessica L. Degarmo and I look forward to reading more of her books in the very near future. I am definitely adding her to my list of Authors to read.
