Review for Love Starts Here by Traci Borum

Love Starts Here (A Morgan's Grove Novel #1)


Traci Borum 

March 30th 2020 by Red Adept Publishing, LLC

Feeling her life is at a standstill, Jill McCallister jumps at the chance to visit Morgan’s Grove, the town founded by her great-great-great-grandfather. Eager to discover her roots and do research for a new book, she drives from Colorado to Texas, excited to meet the inhabitants of her grandfather’s legacy.

Jill immerses herself in the charming community, enjoying the residents and their quirky traditions. When she meets the mysterious Rick Wright, she almost forgets she’s sworn off men, but she’s not willing to risk getting too involved, especially since she will be returning home in a few weeks.

When the winter festival kicks into high gear, Jill and Rick are thrown together to work on a project, and sparks soon fly. Although she fights it, Jill can’t help falling hard for his soulful eyes and flirty smile. But as tempting as Rick is, he’s hiding something, and the mystery writer in Jill is determined to discover his secret.

With the clock running out on her time in Morgan’s Grove, Jill needs to decide what “home” really means to her. 


I love a good small town, sweet contemporary romance story.   Traci Borum wrote exactly what I was looking for.    Jill is an author struggling to find her next story, Rick is a successful man who has realized that being successful is not all that he wants in life.   As their friendship grows, their feelings develop, and they both find what is important to them.   


The small town of Morgan Grove is rich in history and full of wonderful citizens.   I love how the citizens were quick to share their stories, tell their histories, and accept Jill into their town.    Morgan Grove is also home to Jill’s ancestors.    She arrives to find out more about her ancestors and learns so much more than she expected.  


Love Starts Here is a fun story.  It was easy to read, quick to fall into, and had a story that was perfect for a summer read.
