Piper Wick left her hometown of Pickwick, North Carolina for the big city of Los Angeles, twelve years ago and never looked back.
Her hard earned happiness is threatened by an uncle's gulity conscience. Uncle Obadiah Pickwick has decided to change his will, leaving money to make amends for generations worth of family misdeeds. The Pickwick family, not wanting to lose their inheritance or have their family secrets revealed, calls Piper and her sucessful PR skills to come home and to try and talk some sense into Uncle Obadiah.
Piper arrives in Pickwick with the plan to get in and get out but, once there, she can't seem to stay on task. Piper is also trying to make her long distance relationship with her boyfriend work and why can't she stop the feelings she has for Uncle Obadiah's gardener, Axel Smith?
Leaving Carolina is the Christian version of "Sweet Home Alabama": girl leaves the South, goes to big city, has a big-wig boyfriend, has to go home for some reason, falls in love with country boy. This book even has a big, old, slobbery dog in it like "Sweet Home Alabama".
However, it is an entertaining read that anyone with a sense of romance will enjoy. It is a great beach or snuggled under the covers on a rainy day type of book with lots of humor to have you laughing out loud.
