"The Road to Testament" by Eva Marie Everson

About this book:

  “Ashlynne Rothschild grew up with the proverbial silver spoon in her mouth. Smart and sassy, Ashlynne expects to inherit the "Park Avenues" magazine empire. But her family has other ideas. Feeling she needs to understand the world beyond, they ship her off to Testament, North Carolina, for a little learning about life." William Decker grew up in a small town with dreams of big-city success. But when the spoiled Ashlynne falls under his authority, her big city ways aren’t so appealing. Ashlynne’s attempt at learn normal ends with a wounded spirit, while William's reach for the stars attitude ends with a wounded heart. When these two journalists go head to head, the race is on to see if either will succeed in getting what they really want.

Another bio about this book: {Mine is an Advance Readers Copy (ARC) and is different from both of these.}

“Ashlynne Rothschild never wanted to be a people person. She learned a long time ago that the more she protected herself from the details of people’s personal lives, the better off her life would be. So it comes as a surprise when she finds herself liking—if not loving—the good, God-fearing people of Testament, North Carolina, where she is sent to earn her chops as a reporter. And it is with some anxiety that she unearths a story that could turn these people against her. Beneath the picturesque setting of the Blue Ridge Mountains, secrets are buried—one secret in particular. Keeping it hidden would go against Ashlynne’s journalistic integrity, but publishing the story would hurt those she’s learned to love—even her gruff, unapproachable boss, William Decker, who harbors mysteries of his own. Ashlynne has two options: run away or expose the truth of Testament . . . whatever the cost?”

 Series: As of now, no. :(

Spiritual Content- Everyday—or almost every day—Ashlynne starts off with a devotional; Two Scriptures and with each devotional; Prayers; Talks about God & His Will; Church goin’.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: seven ‘shoot’s (Will was trying to teach Ashlynne how to say “Shoot, I reckon.” and they repeat it many times); Drugs & Slaver play a part but are not-detailed and once semi-detailed.   

Sexual Content- Two semi-detailed kisses & a few not-detailed kisses.

My personal Rating-

This was my first book by Eva Marie Everson I’ve read {I looked on my ‘shelves, and I own “This Fine Life” by her, just haven’t read it yet.} and it defiantly won’t be my last! It was a sweet story with a historical past.

See y’all on Monday for another review!
