Book Review - Untold (A Country Roads Novel) by Shannon Richard


SOMETIMES LOVE HAS A PLAN OF ITS OWN . . . Brie Davis came to Mirabelle, Florida, for one thing: the funeral of her birth mother-a woman she never had a chance to know. Now Brie must sort through her mother's life to get the answers she was denied. She plans to leave as soon as she can . . . except the sexy veterinarian makes Brie's pulse beat faster than she's willing to admit.

Finn Shepherd knows Brie's only in town for a short while, but he can't stay away. Instead he finds himself looking for more reasons to keep her close. Finn's already had his fair share of heartbreak, yet Brie makes him want to take that risk again. Now all Finn has to do is convince her to take a chance on him . . . before she disappears from his life forever.


I love this series so much that it was really hard for me to read this book knowing it was the last one.  Shannon Richards has created a town in Florida with so many characters I have fallen in love with over the last couple of years and it is hard to say goodbye to them.  Of course, she sends us off with a heartbreaking story that had me in tears on its own.  Brie and Finn are so well written that when they get to the inevitable struggle you know is coming, it easy to get caught up in their emotions and understand both of their motivations.   As much as I wanted to draw out the last of the Country Roads series, I wanted these two crazy kids to get their HEA even more and so I finished and now I will patiently wait for whatever Shannon Richards creates next for her readers.

MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy


Shannon Richard grew up in the Panhandle of Florida as the baby sister of two overly protective but loving brothers. She was raised by a more than somewhat eccentric mother, a self-proclaimed vocabularist who showed her how to get lost in a book, and a father who passed on his love for coffee and really loud music. She graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor’s in English literature and still lives in Tallahassee, where she battles everyday life with writing, reading, and a rant every once in a while. Okay, so the rants might happen on a regular basis. She’s still waiting for her Southern, scruffy Mr. Darcy, and in the meantime writes love stories to indulge her overactive imagination. Oh, and she’s a pretty big fan of the whimsy.
