Review of 'The Posse' by Tawdra Kandle

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 thoughts**

This book is one of those feel-good, uplifting, heartwrenching romances that we need from time to time in our lives. It's about love lost, love found, love revisited, and love shared. More than one love story takes place in this book. You have the memories of Jude's husband. You have the newfound love within the Posse. You have the love of parents for children and of children for their parents. You have the love between friends. Each one of these is special in its own way and affects Jude's life in a different manner. 

Jude is a strong woman who has been reeling from the early death of her husband. She continued to raise their two almost-grown children, and to run the family business, all by herself. She has leaned on her closest friends, known as The Posse, for love and support. She continues to put one foot in front of the other, but is really deserving of so much more. Her friends decide to try to give her that. It turns out differently than any of them imagine, but also in the best possible fashion. 

Life also has plenty of other surprises to throw Jude's way, in life and love, particularly with her children. For a woman who has lost so much, she has so much more to gain, and slowly makes her way down that path. There isn't a lot of drama, nor conflict, making this a sweet romance story. It touches your heart and may even bring a tear to your eye. I was out at a restaurant reading, and had to order an extra margarita, because I was so emotionally involved and engrossed in it!

I applaud Tawdra's first adult novel and look forward to reading more of them!
