Review of Urban Renewal by Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy

Urban Renewal
Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy

Who says you can't go home again??  Marie Dillard thought all her dreams came true.  Becoming movie star Mercedes Montague gave her everything she ever dreamed of – the fame, the fortune, and the glittering celebrity lifestyle. But somewhere along the way, she lost who she was. On a publicity tour for her newest movie she realizes she’s just fifty miles from her hometown and decides to go home to see if she can find what’s left of herself. Hiding away from the world in her grandparents’ old home she’s haunted by memories and reminders of her old life...including her first and only love, Joe Shelby.

Marie’s stunned when she sees Joe at the local supermarket & even more surprised when he shows up at her door. The passion rekindles between them from the first moment their eyes meet. But in the years of separation, both have extra baggage they need to work through. Will love be enough for them to make it this time around?  Or will the celebrity excitement pull her away from the only place she's felt at home?  You have to read to find out.

This is the first book I've read by Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy & I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.  The characters are down to earth & easy to love. The story line keeps you entertained from the first page til the end.  This book will make everyone want to go back home to the past...
I rate this book 4 1/2 stars
