Contemporary readers, Janet W. Ferguson once again adds a story to her Coastal Hearts series that you do not want to skip.

In Star Rising, Star Youngblood and Paul Kelly come together because of the health of Priscilla Kelly—her boss and his mother. The situation brings out the need of both Star and Paul to lovingly protect her, but by no means does that correlate to them actually getting along with each other. Still, entertaining mishaps ensue, sparking great conversation, transformation, and romance.

The story between Star and Paul balances lighthearted moments with more serious ones well, making it easily engaging. I enjoyed seeing more of Star (find some of her backstory in The Art of Rivers), as well as the trajectory of Paul’s growth. It all proves fun and heartfelt and did not leave me disappointed.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
