REVIEW- Sunshine and Rain by M. Mabie

Standalone small-town romance, City Limits #2

Sunshine and Rain, City Limits 2 | LIVE NOW!
Roots and Wings, City Limits 1 | 99¢


Welcome to Wynne, population 3402.
No rockstars. No major politicians. No media moguls.
Things don’t change quickly in a small town, except when they do. It’s been pouring rain all summer long, and the disc jockey and local farmer are all of the sudden attached at the hip. It’s not only the rising river getting deeper and deeper.
This is your basic water tower painting, tractor driving, tailgate cooler packing kind a guy chases the single, blonde, radio vixen with mosquito bite rage from his youth type of romance. Or is it the other way around?
Low on drama. High on Love.
Grab an umbrella because it’s a long wet summer.

Rhett Caraway has been in love with Sunny Wilbanks since he was a boy....the only problem being that Sunny is five years older than Rhett. Rhett has returned to Wynne after finishing college and is working on his family farm, which is right where he wants to be. He has no intentions of going after Sunny, having been let down by her many times (albeit gently, and due to their age gap). Sunny last saw Rhett nearly ten years ago, when she left for college (and when he left for college). At first she doesn't recognize the insanely handsome, rugged man that Rhett has become.....and she feels a bit pervy about being attracted to him considering their history.

After getting to know Rhett as the man he's become, Sunny is quite intrigued with him. She slowly comes to realize that she doesn't care what everyone in town thinks about and decides that she's interested in pursuing things with him. It takes a bit to convince Rhett that he's not imagining Sunny's interest in him....but he's on board as soon as he realizes all his hopes and dreams are finally coming to fruition. Although they have some minor issues to conquer, they are easily handled. I liked Sunny's big gesture to Rhett towards the end and it brought their story full-circle.

This is definitely a light and easy romance and I quite enjoyed it. I will continue to read this series as it becomes available.
