The Posse

Being a widow at the age of forty-four was never in Jude Hawthorne’s plans. After her husband’s death, she’s left with her family’s beach restaurant and two nearly-grown children. The last thing she’s looking for is another chance at love.
However, if her husband’s best friends, the Posse, have anything to say about it, love is just what she’s going to get. The Posse is determined to take care of Jude, and when they decide the best way to do that is for one of them to sweep her off her feet, three begin to vie for her affections. But only one can reach her heart.

In a story of friendship, loss and second chances, Jude will learn her life is far from being over.
My review:

The Posse is the first adult novel written by the author. She has a YA series out already that I loved. Her first adult short story appears in Eternal Summer, an anthology.
The Posse is set in a fictional small town on the east coast of Florida. It centers on Jude, a widow whose children are about to go back to their lives a year after their father died. Now Jude must begin her new life.
So she does. But not without some problems along the way. And did I mention 3 hot guys? Three of her late husband’s friends decide to woo her. I won’t give any spoilers here of course but the ride on the way to her decision is full of laughter and tears.
I loved how Jude is a middle aged woman, and appreciated the references to 80’s music which is from my time. The idea of second chances, a strong woman, and moving on with life were all themes in this well-written story. I could see this quaint little town in my head, and all the fun characters. Like the 3 hot guys. Sensing a theme here?
Loved the romance in this book. These are men that know how to court a woman. Dinners, dancing, and just knowing how a woman likes to be treated. This book transported me, had me laughing, and crying tears of joy by the end. These characters are so well defined, I felt like I knew them and wanted to hang out with them.
The adult characters are all strong. These are not teenagers or young adults finding their way in life. I could really identify with that and made the story more plausible for me. They were real, flawed people who had lived and had experiences similar to me and people I know.
So if you like romance, a great story, and 3 hot guys, go get this book! Now!
I enjoyed a nice chilled Riesling with this…but am now craving some limoncello!
