Review ~ A Long Goodbye (Southern Comfort, #1) by Kelly Mooney

A Long Goodbye (Southern Comfort, #1)
ebook downloaded for free via Amazon

Release Date: November 8th 2013

Publisher: Self-published

Unable to pretend to be the perfect daughter, marry the perfect Southern gentleman, and have perfect babies like her overprotective father expects her to, Ashton Winslow and her best friend, LuLuBelle set out on a two-week vacation to change all that.

Two weeks of freedom is exactly what she craves and needs. Ashton is tired of being told she's perfect, and tired of pretending to be someone she isn't. She wants to reinvent herself, if only for a short time and she hopes Nashville is the place to do it. Preferably with a smooth talking cowboy. 

With no one watching her every move, or so she thinks, Ashton finds the one person who finally sees her for the woman she wants to be. 

Dane Woods has just come home from fighting overseas after losing his best friend. Everyone, including himself expects him to reenlist for another tour, but he can't break a promise he made to his dying friend. 

The last thing Dane has on his mind while tailing a Southern Princess like Ashton Winslow is falling in love. She's supposed to be two week job, but it turns into so much more. 

Will Dane risk everything to be with Ashton or will his lies and betrayal destroy her love for him?

My Opinion

A cute, easy read to get lost in for a couple of hours. A Long Goodbye is one of the better freebies I've read recently. It was a sweet read that held my interest well.

The plot centres around Ashton, a twenty-something year old with a controlling father. Before marrying the guy her dad has picked out she wants one last trip with her friend Lu. On the trip she lets go, has fun, and starts to find herself. She also starts to fall in love with Woody. However, Woody is hiding something big from her and revealing it will destroy Ashton.

A Long Goodbye was simple in its story line, and predictable to some extent. Regardless, it's one of those feel-good reads where the hero fights for the heroin and helps her discover who she wants to be. I believed in the chemistry between Ashton and Dane. There was definitely a spark and I couldn't hep root for them.

Overall a good read. This was the first time I've read anything by this author, but no doubt I will be reading more in the future.
