Review of ‘South of Heaven’ by Ali Spooner

31814829This book is a feel-good, grinning from ear-to-ear kind of story.  Kendra takes over her father’s shrimping business and has plans to expand.  Her dad asks her to take on the daughter of an old army buddy, Lindsey,  who needs to get away for a while and to get some experience on the boat.  They are obviously attracted to each other but it takes a while for them to realise it and to act on it.  This is a slow burner but it so much better for it.  I liked seeing them become closer and their growing attraction was sweet and quite beautiful and oh so hot!  They faced perils at sea which had a fair amount of tension and the worry of how the all-male crew would react to their relationship.  Lindsey also had to constant worry that her father wouldn’t accept her sexuality.  I loved how Ali Spooner chose to deal with it and it made me feel such warmth towards the characters.  Lindsey was kind and courageous and completely smitten by Kendra.  No-one could doubt their love when they saw the look on her face.  Kendra was capable, compassionate and utterly adorable and I’m not surprised her crew loved her.   I loved being in their world and following this oh-so romantic story.
I was given this ARC free by Affinity ebook Press in return for an honest review.
