✱✱Book Review✱✱ Protecting Everleigh by PJ Fiala
Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
Being Kentucky born and raised, I'm usually quick to pick up books by Kentucky authors or with a Kentucky setting. Yet, somehow, PJ Fiala escaped my notice. Until now! Protecting Everleigh gave me a taste of Fiala's talent, and my TBR just got a whole lot bigger.
I'm from a small town and now live in an even smaller town, and this may be a work of fiction, but the characters and their motivations feel real. So many of the people of Glen Hollow feel like neighbors I'd run into at the grocery store or pass on my way into the tiny little post office. It's pretty easy to get invested in the characters and the town when it feels so familiar, which is what happened before I even started rooting for the romantic couple - although that didn't take long either.
Everleigh and Henry have great chemistry. I love that they seem to genuinely like each other's company. Of course, it's not all fun and games for this pair. They have some tense and dangerous circumstances to get through before they can get to their HEA.
So, I'm not gonna get into specifics to avoid spoilers, but the writing is very good, the storyline is a nice balance between the romance and suspense, and, well, I'm kind of partial to the setting. As I understand it, this is book 4 in a spin-off series, so I'm behind. I do plan to remedy that, and I plan to spend much more time in Glen Hollow, plus any other towns PJ Fiala has set her stories in. I will add that I didn't feel lost at any point in Protecting Everleigh. Fiala gives us everything we need to follow the story and any of the characters.
