New York City meets smalltown Georgia head-on in Bond’s third Southern Roads contemporary (after Baby, Drive South and Baby, Come Home). Manhattanite Alicia Randall assumes the alias Alicia Waters when she invades the aw-shucks mountaintop town of Sweetness to gather material for her column in Feminine Power magazine. She’s certain there is something sinister about a town run by three brothers who have advertised for women interested in making a fresh start. The ad made perfect sense to two of the Armstrong brothers, who figured the women could help rebuild and repopulate tornado-leveled Sweetness. Eldest brother Marcus is still skeptical—until he lays eyes on Alicia. Motivated by a chance to syndicate her blog, Alicia is determined to bed the recalcitrant Marcus and expose Sweetness’s dirtiest secrets... except there aren’t any. Bond fans will take to the homespun romantic charm of this diverting series finale. Agent: Kimberly Whalen. (Dec.)
