Loved this book! It was a fresh breeze! The characters were wonderful and I am already looking for more books by this author! ( )

This was on of the most sweet, entertaining and funny romances I have read in a long time. The story flowed well with good character development that had us caring about the Paul & Martie. There are no descriptive sex scenes in this book. On the Nook this book has a total of 402 pages with 361 pages of story.

When vagabond musician Marte Fleming moved to small town Mississippi, she never expected her dance studio to be labeled a honky tonk. And she certainly never expected to fall for the preacher next door. They are absolutely wrong for each other.

How Reverend Paul Donovan convinces a congregation to change its mind about Marte and convinces her to change her mind about him, makes for wonderful romantic comedy. Prepare for laughter and tears.

The writing style was passable and it could have been a cute,
fitting story but the "human passion" was a little too intense
for the story subject.
The point that a minister is still a man was OK. The fact that
the woman he fell in love with was a little flamboyant was OK to
a point. It was a little excessive. Also, an angry, judgmental
congregation is not likely to repent and change their attitudes
so quickly. That was totally unrealistic. It would be acceptable
in a fantasy or fairytale setting but not in a romance novel. If
explicit sex is the author's goal, I strongly suggest it won't
involve a loved, respected, sincere minister. ( )

Peggy Webb told an excellent story of a man and woman, so different from each, falling in love and overcoming the differences. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. ( )

Book description
When Martie Fleming fell out of a tree into Paul Donovan's garden, she felt the world - and her heart - spinning out of control! But when the devilishly handsome man who helped her up turned out to be a minister, free-spirited Martie ran for cover. With her gypsy-like outfits, her passion for sweetly raucous music to accompany her Jazzercise classes, and an irrepressibly spicy wit, wasn't she clearly unsuitable to be a clergyman's wife? Paul used his most convincing arguments on her, but Martie was sure the small Southern town they lived in would never accept her. When a compromising position made their pairing inevitable, though, the fireworks that followed lit up the heavens!

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"A vagabond musician decides to settle down in a small town and promptly falls in love with her next door neighbor. To her dismay, he turns out to be the local minister. Ms. Webb has done a really lovely job of weaving in the more serious problems relating to the hero's vocation while maintaining a marvelous sense of humor and romance." Romantic Times "Webb has a fresh and humorous voice that makes reading just plain fun." Affaire de Coeur "Peggy Webb's humor keeps fans coming back." Times/Daily, Jackson, TN "The Donovans of the Delta classics are a heartwarming portrayal of family. Peggy Webb's unique voice and comedic touch make this charming Southern series a true masterpiece. The stories made me laugh out loud and cry. Just amazing!" Debra Webb, national bestselling author of the Colby Agency series Donovans of the Delta Series, Book One (Special Holiday Price) When Martie Fleming breezed into small town Pontotoc, Mississippi, determined to settle down and teach jazzercise in her home studio, she never expected to land next door to the minister. She never expected her playful golden retriever to steal his shorts right off the clothes line. And she certainly never expected to fall in love. Everybody in town would agree they are so wrong for each other -- everybody but Paul Donovan. With her gypsy outfits, her lively music and her irrepressible spirit, Martie is exactly the angel the preacher needs. But can he convince her? Can their love and his career survive the small town gossip and the fireworks Martie creates wherever she goes? This is the first of a five-book romantic comedy series originally published by Loveswept and considered to be their definitive family series. The sequel to Donovan's Angel is Sleepless Nights.… (more)
