Who says you can’t find your soulmate when you’re five-years-old? Melissa “Missy” Green and Noah “Shep” Shepherd’s fates were sealed as childhood sweethearts one fateful day on the playground when they were just kids. When she’s forced to leave Shepherd Grove, Texas by Noah’s spiteful, wealthy parents after high school, Missy’s world is shattered. Leaving Texas, her family, and Noah behind, she shoves her heartbreak aside and creates a successful life for herself in Boston. After ten years, Missy returns to attend her sister’s baby shower. The attraction between her and Shep is undeniable, but she's torn. Is she open to a second chance at love or are the wounds of the past too deep to ignore? Please note: All Roads Lead to Shepherd Grove is a small town, second chance romance short story, on the sweet side – about 10,000 words.

My Review:

Can past hurts and prejudices be forgiven for a soul-satisfying love? Dania Voss is back with a wonderful second chance romance set in the heart of Texas. I’m a big fan of second chances and coming home. With emotional narration, characters that are easy to identify with, a western setting, All Roads Lead to Shepherd Grove is a must-read.

Let’s start with the characters because this romance is character driven. Missy is a heroine any and all readers will root for. She’s smart, speaks her mind, and is very different from when she was eighteen. She’s made a name for herself and become a success. But the past still haunts her, especially Shep. Her emotions are all over the place but understandable considering what happened in the past. The rest of the characters are also very relatable, and I connected with them all. Each character is expertly written with their own story to tell.

The narration is intricately described with tons of emotion. Dania Voss weaves the story with precision, adding just the right amount of conflict, tension, and emotion. My heart went out to both Missy and Shep as they try to reconcile the past. I got so invested in what was going on, I wept.

The romance is very angsty yet heartfelt. The simmering tension is a mix of emotions and so addictive to read, I couldn’t put it down. The ending! OMG, it’s so beautiful.

If you’re a romance reader, pick up All Roads Lead to Shepherd Grove.
