Publisher's Summary

Sometimes it takes an outsider to force us to see who we are. The real struggle is accepting what we learn.

For Beverly Townsen, nothing could be closer to the truth. Virtually a shut-in, Beverly has pulled back from Green Valley’s community, preferring the isolation of her farmhouse and her daily routine of viewing home improvement television shows. When the opportunity arises for her own home improvement and a personal re-assessment, she’s not so excited about the reality of real life versus DIY programs.

Jedd Flemming understands physical pain and personal loss, but it’s never stopped him from bucking forward in life. A former military man and rodeo star, his life as a nomad comes to an end with false accusations and a family matter back in the Valley. It’s been a long journey to find his way home and once there, there’s nothing he wants more than to reclaim what he’s lost…and maybe the elusive female recluse who holds a sliver of his past.

With an unprecedented proposition, Beverly finds a stranger living in her barn, raising horses on borrowed pastures, and plowing his way into her vacant heart. Old hurts linger, but sometimes love indeed is louder than words. 

Love in Deed is a full-length contemporary romance, can be listened to as a standalone, and is book #6 in the Green Valley Libary series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Still Actually Angry From Listening

I need to listen to audiobooks when I drive. It relaxes me but at the same time keeps me alert. So I was kind of trapped for far too much of this book. Not that I ended up finishing it. I'm not a masochist.
While trapped and driving I gave some thought to what I disliked the most.
Would the female protagonist sound so incredibly unlikable if I had read it myself? Would I think she was not only emotionally stunted, which was a given and part of the story so okay, but also intellectually stunted if the VO actress hadn't read her like she was slowly searching for words she didn't quite know the meaning of? I don't know and I'll never find out for sure.
But when I got a bit deeper into the book, and I gathered more insight into the hero, he was also unlikable and not that bright, but the VO actor wasn't bad, so it wasn't him.
Oh also, the female VO really didn't distinguish much with the voices, so figuring out who was talking if there was more than one woman in a scene took that extra beat of time.
I can't recommend this at all.

Love adversity and triumph of the human spirit

Great story! Wrapped up many characters stories, heartfelt and heart wrenching in its own story, Jedd & Beverly. Rich characters flawed by their circumstances and disabilities found strength in themselves to bring out the best in each other. Appreciate the connection to AA, Veterans and mental health issues, parental/ child relationship, domestic abuse, etc. so current and timely. Will Hannah and Grizzleys story be next? Could be it’s own series??
