Just Maybe by Crystal Walton – Review

Just Maybe
by Crystal Walton


Series: Home In You #3
Publication Date 11 October 2017
Genres: Clean Romance
Setting: North Carolina Contemporary
Main Character Ages: 25-35
Written for: Adult
Pages: 331

Synopsis:

When a case of mistaken identity spirals into a more-than-complicated pretend relationship, an adventure seeker and a grammar fanatic just might’ve met each other’s match. 

Three weeks. That’s all the time self-made billionaire Cooper Anderson has to respond to discovering he’s a single dad, sell his lake house, and catch a one-way ticket across the world. The quick-witted nanny responding to his ad couldn’t be more of a life saver … and maybe a nice distraction. Until the secrets she’s hiding get a little too close to exposing his own. 

The one lead guaranteeing Quinn Thompson a promotion just has to land her back in her hometown to finagle an interview out of Mr. Elusive, of all people. But she can hack it, right? Even while mistaken for the nanny, she can keep things quick and professional. No running into her embarrassing southern family, no stirring up the wounds that’d sent her packing four years ago, and definitely no melting over a stockbroker’s unfair dimples and boyish charm. 

Why, oh, why doesn’t anything ever go according to plan? 

With both their deadlines closing in before they’re ready, Quinn and Cooper must decide whether the life they’re set on pursuing alone is worth more than the one they could be missing together. 

Download Just Maybe to enjoy a southern sweet romance full of small-town laughs, memorable family members, and the heartwarming treasure of second chances.

Each book in the Home In You Series is a standalone and can be read separately. But I recommend reading the books in order if you want to follow the overall timeline: 

Still Falling - A Prequel 
Write Me Home - Book One 
Begin Again - Book Two 
Just Maybe - Book Three

I would like to thank Author for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

Due to a case of mistaken identity, Quinn is allowed into the inner sanctum of Cooper, who does his best to evade reporters.  Not only does she get into his house, she is invited into his life as nanny to Brayden, his baby.

This touching story is full of mistaken identity, embarrassing parents, and secrets.  It started out well and continued to hold my interest.

Quinn is great fun.  She is bubbly and dances as she bakes.

My favorite phrase from the book is “Dancing with the dragonflies”.  Just Maybe this could have been the title of the book.  🙂

What Makes My Stories Unique:
My heart thrives in emotionally compelling fiction. You know the kind. They’re the books you stay up reading far past your normal bedtime; the ones you read in the free five minutes before you leave for work; and the ones that cause a traffic jam because you tried to sneak in a few more pages at a stoplight (speaking from experience here!).

They’re the kind of stories that draw you into characters’ lives to the point of feeling what they feel and impact you beyond mere entertainment. And they’ll always be the kind of stories I aim to share with you. (Read about how this all started here).

“As an author, I don’t want readers to simply close my books and go to sleep with the satisfaction of being entertained. I want them to close my books and begin a new day with the hope of redemption.”

If you’ve read any of my books, you may have noticed a trend. At least one character in every story is an artist of some kind, and their arc always brings them to the point of discovering the gifts inside them they’re meant to share.

My characters are intentionally a little raw. They wrestle lies and insecurities, make bad choices, and give in to doubts. But the heart of every story focuses on a character’s journey from a lie to a truth, brokenness to redemption, doubt to hope.

What Makes Me Unique:
Writing takes creativity, yes, but also discipline. It’s easy for my type A traits to take over. Luckily, my spontaneous, easy-going husband has helped (okay, forced) me to learn to go with the flow. Now, let’s be real. I still geek out over finding ways to be more organized, and I still have my week planned out before it starts. But trust me, I’m more laid back than I’d be without Dave in my life.

I wear long johns in temperatures below 70 degrees. Seriously. There’s nothing in the world quite as invigorating and motivating as sunlight. And maybe Starbucks, if we’re being honest.

Funny enough, I don’t drink coffee. As in, not at all. Zilch! I am a 100% dedicated green tea fan. Not the flowery kind. No add ins. No hint of spearmint or whatever clever “Zen” additives companies use to taint the real deal. Just straight, full-leaf, full-bodied green tea. Venti, please! It’s the perfect muse.
