Small Town Rumors Reviews
The perfect book to lift your spirit.
I needed to read a feel good book because life had been tough lately. I found it in this book. It is a love story but mixed with so many other stories that it isn't a sappy one. The characters gave so much life to the book and the elderly sisters were perfect in their relationship with each other. An extremely good book to read.

I normally despise 'small town' romances but this was lovely. The characters came alive on the page and the story flowed naturally. Even the 'nosey' older women were believable and - rare in a lot of 'small town' stories - thoroughly likeable.
This was honestly so dull I just wanted it to end from the start
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for a honest review.
Small Town Rumors is like many of Carolyn Browns books, I love when she writes about people in small towns it's something she does very well. I really liked Jennie Sue and how she stood up to her mother and finally starts to live her own life. I really do love how over the top the characters were in this story, it made me laugh. I like Rick for Jennie Sue and Jennie Sue for Rick, they were overall a good match. I liked that we got ...more
Jennie Sue Baker returns to Bloom, Texas on the bus! Since her family is wealthy and has their own plane, that is grist for the small town rumor mill. Then she has a disagreement with her mother on her future plans – her mother wants her to find another husband - but Jenny Sue wants a job now that she has divorced her cheating thieving abusive husband and graduated from college.
Jenny Sue goes into town and accepts a temporary job cleaning house for her mother’s arch-enemies and moves into a sma ...more
