Publisher's Summary

No one told him he had a son.

Actor Dylan Conner is furious. Not only has he been left out of his child’s life, the baby boy has been given another man’s last name. Determined to be a better father than the sorry guy who’d left him and his mother, Dylan fights to ensure a significant place in his son’s life. Unfortunately, his bad-boy reputation overshadows his good intentions. Only one woman in this small town sees beyond his Hollywood image. And he’s falling for her. Too bad she’s the custody mediator.

After her scandalous divorce in the small town of Oxford, Mississippi, attorney Cassie Brooks has no intentions of practicing law again. The humiliating experience left a bitter taste for love, marriage, and her profession.

Now friends need Cassie’s help in a custody negotiation, and her role demands she remain objective. She never expected to be drawn to Dylan Conner - the actor who everyone warns is bad news. Not only is the mediation at stake, but so is her heart.

Entertaining and heartfelt

Going Up South is another excellent narration by Naomi Karez, complementing the heartfelt story penned by Janet W. Ferguson. Complex characterisation and authentic storytelling mark this layered tale of Dylan Connors and Cassie Brooks, first introduced in Leaving Oxford. Gripping and emotional, this story captivated my attention from beginning to end as Dylan and Cassie negotiate their complicated lives with a slowly evolving attraction. Faith matters are woven into the tale in a sensitive and genuine way, without being overbearing. Karez once again narrates beautifully, both male and female characters, making the listening experience smooth and emotive. I so appreciate that Ferguson does not shy away from the cost of poor decision making and a self-focused lifestyle, while infusing the story with God's grace and forgiveness. Her characters of faith show weaknesses and unkind attitudes from time to time, lending even more authenticity to this powerful novel. Highly recommended.

Inspirational!

Going Up South by Janet Ferguson
This is my first book by this author and the second one in a series. I didn’t read number one before it, even though this is a series, which is unusual for me. I didn’t have a hard time reading this one first and was not lost by reading it first. I really enjoyed the audio. The narrator was excellent and the story was engaging. There were twist and turns that made you want to keep reading. Each character had their own problems just like in real life and had to work through them like we all do. A powerful love story with a theme of forgiveness that you will enjoy if you like inspirational romance fiction.
I won this Audible audio book from Janet Ferguson in a contest I entered on a blog by the name of Britt Reads Fiction. I was not required to write a review. All opinions expressed are my own.
