Sweet Olive by Judy Christie

Sweet Olive by Judy Christie

A take charge woman in a high power job, a stubborn and strong attorney and a town full of Southern artists. This is the setup for a great book! I loved Camille and her ability to get in and get the job done. As she tries to convince land owners to sell their mineral rights, she finds herself falling in love with everyone.

This book was great! I enjoyed it from beginning all the way through the end! There was an unexpected ending that had my full undivided attention and was positively amazingly written. I can not say enough about this book! It was written well, the characters were great, the story was wonderful, it was just a well rounded book!

Warning-once you start this book, you will NOT want to put it down!

In case you have not heard of this book, here is the description from the publisher:
"Camille Gardner came to small town Louisiana in the name of big business. But will the town of Samford change her before she can change it?
A talented businesswoman in the oil and gas business, Camille Gardner agrees to take on one last assignment for her uncle at the J&S Production Co. She would rather be anywhere than Samford, Louisiana, the small southern town where she once spent the worst month of her life. Most of all, she wants to move on to the art gallery job that is waiting for her in Denver.
To fulfill the obligation she feels to her uncle and get on with the life she dreams of, Camille needs to entice a group of rural landowners to sell their mineral rights—and allow use of their precious water for the drilling of natural gas. Instead, she finds herself drawn to the local folk art created by those same landowners, and attracted to Marsh Cameron, the attorney representing them.
Camille must decide whether family obligation—and her own plans for her future—are more important than the lives and tradition of this small community."
