Addie Heywood thought she was doing okay after her fiancĂ© dumped her just weeks before their wedding, claiming he’d found someone else more compatible with his health food tastes. But when he marries the other woman three months later, Addie needs to get away. Leaving her home in Idaho, she escapes to Mitchel Creek, Georgia to visit her Aunt Janie. She just wants to spend the next two weeks enjoying her aunt’s southern cooking, not dodging the guys her aunt is determined to set her up with.

Chase Nichols isn’t looking for love. His dream is to trade his computer mouse for his guitar and make it big in the country music world. If he can land a job in Nashville, he might have a shot at getting discovered. His plans get derailed when he does his neighbor a favor and picks up her niece, Addie, at the airport. Things get even more complicated when his ex-girlfriend comes back into the picture. That’s when he hatches a new plan. Since Addie wants to avoid her aunt’s matchmaking schemes, and he wants to avoid his ex-girlfriend, they’ll fool the world by pretending to date. What neither of them counts on is actually falling in love.

This is the second book I've read by Cindy Anderson and I am a fan! I loved this book! Addie's had a tough time lately. Her fiance broke up with her three weeks before their wedding because she had unhealthy eating habits and now he's getting married three months later. She needs a break so leaves Idaho for two weeks to go visit her Aunt Janie in Georgia. Janie tends to be a matchmaker and Addie has no plans to date for a very long time.

Aunt Janie asks her neighbor, Chase Nichols, to pick Addie up at the airport. Chase and Addie met years ago when they were young and neither one left a good impression on the other. They've both changed a lot, though, and they're attracted to each other but each have their reasons for not wanting to be in a relationship. A sticky situation arises for Chase so he proposes a solution to Addie: They'll pretend to date while she's there which will keep her aunt from setting her up and will help him shake off a clingy ex-girlfriend.

I loved Addie and Chase's banter and the fun way their relationship progressed. They're both likable and brought out the good in each other. There were complications which changed things for each of them and I wondered if they would figure out a way to be together.

Chase was part of a band, Chasing Dreams, and I loved his bandmates, Beau and Jackson. Beau was someone who could be competition for Addie's heart. Jackson was married and was embarrassing and funny. I also liked Addie's relationships with Chase's sisters, Taylin and Ashlee.

With great characters to love, an ex-girlfriend to dislike, romance, lots of kissing (all clean), obstacles to overcome, and a sigh worthy ending, this is a book I will definitely read again!

Praise for Under a Georgia Moon

“This is just the kind of sweet romance that I love. I thought the plot was fun and the writing well done, was paced well and kept me wanting more. Throw in some swoony moments and I was hooked.” –Kathy (Bookworm Nation)

“Often times when I read multiple books by the same author I am worried that the later books won’t live up to the first one. That is NOT the case with Under a Georgia Moon. I was hooked on Cindy Anderson’s writing with Fair Catch and then again with Discovering Sophie and now with this book.” –Sara Ebert

I love all of Cindy’s books, but so far this one is my favorite! I just didn’t want it to end. Definitely a book that I will read over again. –Dana Weaver
