Those of you who follow my reviews know that I am a fan of Marie Force's stories and Georgia On My Mind didn't disappoint. Unlike the other stories from this author I've read this is a standalone novel. It centers around Georgia, a woman struggling to come to terms with her mother's death, and Nathan, a local detective and the youngest of six brothers.
I loved Georgia (Georgie) and Nathan. It was easy to understand her struggle with her life, family, and her developing relationship with Nathan. And as for Nathan...well he was pretty amazing book boyfriend material. He had his flaws, but is one of those people who has so much passion behind what they do that it's easy to forgive them when they go overboard with something.
As with most of Marie Force's other books, there was more than one story going on. We not only got to follow the romance of Nathan and Georgie, but also that of two of Nathan's brothers with Georgie's two roommates. While I enjoyed the other two romances, I felt it drew the focus away from Nathan and Georgie. It is, however, a common theme in Ms. Force's books.
The editing was on point and other than the issues I mentioned above, the story had a good flow to it.
I would recommend this story to anyone looking for a good romance and doesn't mind multiple point of view changes.
