When you find a book that makes you feel the character is your neighbor and you're just as involved with the storyline- you know it's good. That's what I discovered with Hope Toler Dougherty's Mars... with Venus Rising.
.Twenty-something Penn Davenport yearns for an exciting life in the big city and wants to shed the label of orphan that she’s worn for years. To achieve that dream, she must pass the CPA exam then move away from the two aunts who reared her after her parents died in a plane crash.
When John Townsend—full of life and the joy of living—moves to town, he rattles Penn’s view of herself, her life, and her dreams…which isn’t such a bad thing until she falls for him and discovers he’s a pilot.
Sound like anything you've read? Well, you haven't- this is a cute read and I think anyone who picks it up will not want to put it down.
From page one of chapter one, you will love Penn because she's normal. She's not rich, or has tons of guys chasing after her and she's down to earth. She's had a tough but loved childhood- but she needs to be something more than a Martian (The name for anyone who lives in the city of Mars,) could offer her. She's got dreams of getting away and if it weren't for that hottie and newbie to the neighborhood, John, she'd probably have run a while ago!
This novel, is funny, but the nosy family members, like Jancie and Winnie has been done before. They were adorable aunts but they pressed too much. Honestly, I'd have left them a long time ago!
The book cover is bright and eye-catching and the story is a perfectly crafted. Mars...with Venus rising is an odd title for the story, to me, but it worked. It's a clean story that will have you laughing and the romance is sweet. Grab yourself a copy or be kind and gift someone you know with this book. Everyone will be so pleased.
On to the next book! 📚
