Just In Case by Elizabeth Marx!!


He’s been waiting for her all these years …
Scarlett Marbry was sixteen when her mother, an acclaimed Sacred Harp singer, committed suicide, sending her away from Crossroads, Alabama and whatever pushed her mother over the edge.  Seven years later, she’s returning for her grandparents’ funeral and the letter her mother left her when she died. Not only does Scarlett have to face her deep Southern roots, but the one she left behind.
She’s never thought she was good enough for him … 

Revell Marshall is used to working with fragile objects. He’s built a life and career around reassembling the delicate stained glass windows that saved the small town of Crossroads from ruin. Once Scarlett returns, he’s determined to win her heart, even if that means helping her piece together the facts of her mother’s past and exposes truths he’d rather leave buried.


Sunny's Review:


This book started out a little bit slow for me. I was not sure I was ever going to really like Scarlett. She comes off a spoiled girl that used her mother's suicide as an excuse to do whatever she wanted. This was just my first impression of her. I wasn't that taken with Revell at first either. I was annoyed with him but as I kept going I had to give him some credit for putting up with Scarlett's shenanigans. Scarlett actually grew on me as the book went on. She was really smart and honestly I would not have stayed in that town either if I had to deal with all the nonsense that she did.
I was sick to my stomach towards the end and everything unraveled. It takes a really great author to make you feel that much about characters. I really ended up liking this story and I think that it was very powerful. I totally recommend it. There are several parts that are really funny. I actually laughed several times. Then of course I was on the total opposite side of things really upset through parts.
I am giving this book 4.6 stars out of 5. Go get it and stick with it even if you are a little bored in the beginning.

About Elizabeth Marx

Windy City writer Elizabeth Marx brings cosmopolitan flair to her fiction, which is a blend of romance and fast-paced Chicago living with a sprinkle of magical realism. In her past incarnation she was an interior designer--not a decorator--which basically means she has a piece of paper to prove that she knows how to match and measure things and can miraculously make mundane pieces of furniture appear to be masterpieces. Elizabeth says being an interior designer is one part shrink, one part marriage counselor and one part artist, skills eerily similar to those employed in writing.
Elizabeth grew up in Illinois and has also lived in Texas and Florida. If she’s not pounding her head against the wall trying to get the words just right, you can find her at a softball field out in the boonies or sitting in the bleachers by a basketball court. Elizabeth resides with her husband, girls, and two cats who’ve spelled everyone into believing they’re really dogs.
Elizabeth has traveled extensively, but still says there’s no town like Chi-Town.
