My Book Review:

In her debut novel, Loving Jovie, author Peggy Dabney weaves an delightful tale of intrigue, drama, and romance. The reader is easily drawn into the complicated love triangle between Jovie Iams, an art curator; her boyfriend, Italian chef Leonardo Manning; and her best friend's brother Owen Michaels, an ex-soldier who just returned home to Iowa from military service abroad. And if a tangled romantic web isn't enough for you, the author interweaves an intriguing mixture of emotional baggage and dark secrets, and a dangerous criminal mafia element involved in the art world who threatens Jovie's life. 

I really enjoyed the mixture of romance and suspense that was interwoven throughout the story, it kept me engaged and turning the pages. I couldn't help but get caught up in the lovers triangle, both Leo and Owen captured Jovie's heart, and I could sympathize with her as she struggled to pick which man would ultimately win her heart. Just as the emotional drama from the lovers triangle starts to heat up, the author adds in the intriguing dangerous criminal element that takes the reader on an exhilarating and suspenseful roller coaster ride to the surprising conclusion. 

If you are looking for an exciting romantic suspense story to wile away a long winter's day, look no further, Loving Jovie is the book for you!
