Gone South by Meg Moseley

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Multnomah publishers.  Tish McComb has fallen in love with her great-great-great-grandparents home.  The only problem is that it is located in Noble, Alabama and she lives in Michigan.  Tish decides to buy the house and start fresh.  Her fiance died in a tragic accident five years ago, and her mother has moved to Florida.   After arriving in town Tish discovers that the McComb name is not well liked and has a hard time trying to make friends or find a job.  Making matters worse, Tish finds Mel Hamilton just after she has been kicked out of her parents home and offers to take her in.  The town might have forgiven her being a McComb, but they won't forgive her helping out the local thief.   I really like the characters in this story.  It is nice to think that there are still people out there that are willing to risk everything to do the right thing.  Tish is a strong women who is trying to overcome the challenges in her life, and thrive where she is.  George seems like a nice guy, and I found myself hoping that he and Tish would be able to work things out.  Mel is a very immature girl.  I had a hard time believing that she was really supposed to be 20.  Overall I enjoyed this book.  It is great to see a book that shows how just a little help up can change a life so completely.  I would give it 4/5 stars.
