    This review was written for Buttermilk Sky.
    All of Jan Watson's books are in my home library, and all were able to draw the reader in and keep them turning pages. "Buttermilk Sky" simply was not nearly as good as the rest of the series, and did not hold my attention as the her other books did.

    Jan Watson in her new book Buttermilk Sky published by Tyndale House Publishers introduces us to Mazy Pelfrey.

    From the back cover: Weary of the expectations imposed on her by her strict upbringing, eighteen-year-old Mazy Pelfrey prepares to leave her home in the Kentucky mountains for the genteel city of Lexington, where shell attend secretarial school. She knows her life is about to changeand only for the better. Everything will be blue skies from now on.

    But business school is harder than she thought it would be and the big city not as friendly, until she meets a charming young man from a wealthy family, Loyal Chambers. When Loyal sets his sights on her, Mazy begins to see that everything shed ever wished to have is right before her eyes. The only hindrance to her budding romance is a former beau, Chanis Clay, the young sheriff she thought shed left firmly behind.

    Danger rumbles like thunder on a high mountain ridge when Mazys cosseted past collides with her clouded future and forces her to come to terms with what she really wants.

    They say the grass is always greener on the other side. Mazy decides the life she has at home is way too constricting for her and sets off to learn business. However it isnt quite what she expected until she meets Loyal and thinks she fell in love. However she did leave the boy at home behind, or so she thought, because Chanis comes after her. Now what is she to do? Ms. Cote has given us a very exciting story filled with high drama. She has also given us plenty to think about: the struggles of growing up, dangers of romance, dealing with peer pressure and coming into your own and how God has to work through individual problems so that each can heal and move into destiny. Great stuff. I am so looking forward to more from this very talented author.

    "Mazy tilted her umbrella against the wind. "I predict buttermilk skies tomorrow." "That makes no sense, Mazy. You can't drink the sky." "My mother used to say that - it means the clouds are fluffy and break up easily, like creamy buttermilk."' ( pg. 129 )

    Jan Watson has a gift for writing - a gift that flows onto the pages of her books and inspires her readers. The first time I read a book by Jan Watson { Troublesome Creek } I was blown away by the depth, emotion, and character of her writing. She instantly became a favorite author of mine. Jan Watson once again blew me away with Buttermilk Sky. Her writing seems to draw the reader into her world of the Kentucky mountains making you feel like you're a part of them, as if your heart beats as one. The characters in this book are vibrant and full of life - they are portrayed in a way that makes you feel like you're right there by their side experiencing their ups and downs, the happy moments and the sad. The humor is charming and will keep you smiling throughout the pages.

    Mazy is somewhat naiive as she leaves her beloved mountains and attends secretarial school in Lexington. She struggles with staying because of the diffculties of her classes and she takes into consideration that maybe she isn't cut out to be a secretary. She has thought it through and is just about to give up and head home when Loyal Chambers walks into her life and changes everything. . .

    Loyal Chamber is everything a girl could want: charming, handsome, wealthy, entertaining. And he seems to fit the bill of what Mazy wants in a man. With a little motivation from Loyal, Mazy is back on track in school and ready for some changes in her "simple" life.

    But then dear, sweet, kind Chanis shows up in Lexington expressing his love and adoration to Mazy. Talk about bad timing! Mazy has been slowly pulling away from her former beau and has decided she doesn't want his attention anymore. She has told herself that Chanis just isn't what she wants. Poor Mazy, she is beside herself with decisions that need to be made. She knows what she wants, but her head and her heart aren't matching up - what is a mountain girl to do. . .

    Buttermilk Sky has my vote - it's an impressive and enjoyable book. Jan Watson fills the pages with love, encouragement, wisdom, and a little bit of suspense. I truly appreciate and applaud the talent of Jan's writing and imagination - she does not disappoint!

    charming story of truth and honesty

    This review was written for Buttermilk Sky.
    Mazy Pelfrey moves to the big city of Lexington KY to expend her life and have a career. She leaves behind Chanis the young sheriff who has loved her for years. Mazy makes new friends and is introduced to a lifestyle very different from the hills of KY. The story is set in 1900s in Kentucky, but rings true to relationships and society issues today. The characters are sweet and believable and you grow to love them. Your heart goes out to Cinnamon Spicer a very poor little girl who "picks" garbage to sell just to barely survive. Mazy learns through her about true honesty.



    Thank you to the author, the publisher and Book Club Network for the opportunity to read and review this book.



    I received this book free of charge from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    Danger rumbles like thunder on a high mountain ridge when Mazy's cosseted past collides with her clouded future and forces her to come to terms with what she really wants.

    Jan Watsons beautiful writing brings to life the setting and characters of Buttermilk Sky. I was intrigued by Mazy Pelfrey and eager to know what would become of this young woman and her future. There were several secondary characters that also interested me, and I would love to read their stories. Buttermilk Sky is the first novel I have read by Jan Watson, and I am eager to read more!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through The Book Club Network. All thoughts expressed are my own and no monetary compensation was received.
