For Jesse Winsloe, the answer is clear: head into hiding. Single again and laid off from work, Jesse flees to Onery Cabin to lick her wounds with her ancient aunt Will—a Granny woman with the secret to healing the lovelorn.Sure, Onery Cabin may be right out of Hollywood's Lifestyles of the Poor and Hillbilly, but Marrying Stone Mountain has its charm—including the local physician's assistant, Piney Baxley, a past recipient of Aunt Will's pungent "heartbreak poultice." Between folk remedies and a "no strings attached" romance, Jesse is beginning to think she's found her own brand of lovesick cure—because there's nothing like a pinch of confidence and a dash of attraction to mend a broken heartReview
It's a contemporary romance, that makes it a must try. It's Harlequin and they can do no wrong with romance. Plus the small town setting is a big plus
Cute story of women who gets her heart broken and decides to head to small town life to spend time with her ailing Aunt, Erwin or Piney is a single father is trying to get over his divorce and get in a new relationship (fling/physical), but when you live in a small town what you do is seen by ALL. Then Jesse comes along and things start looking up for the both of them. They both want the intimacy without the relationship, and thus their friends with benefits situation begins. The Lovesick Cure is a story I just fell in love with. Everyone knows I adore a good small town love story. From the synopsis you would think this is just your average romance but it is so much more.
One thing I like about this story is the characters. Of course I love Jesse and Piney. But I didn't know I would fall in love with every other character in this small town. Aunt Will's character kind of just takes over. She is the "granny" that everyone wants to have. She is there with great advice. She is wise and caring, but also tells it like it is. Did I mention I love this character? She was perfect. I wish I could bottle all her wisdom and advice and save it for later. Aunt Willie will make, you laugh, cry, and if you don't fall in love with her than you should just read the book again. There is also a side story going on with Tree (piney's seventeen year old son) and his girlfriend Camyrn. The author also explores Piney's relationship with tree, and you get to see their father/son interaction. I love that every character has a voice and even though I expected more romance having all of the side stories wasn't bad at all.
Something I didn't like where Camyrn's character at times. I understand she was scared about where her relationship would go with Tree in college, but man sometimes I just didn't like her, you will see why if you read it or maybe you won't. It could be just me.
Overall, "The Lovesick Cure" was a pretty decent book. It turned out to be more of a life lesson's story, and a sort of right or passage, than a full-fledged romance novel. At the end some secrets are told and it's a little bit on a mini shocker!
