Book Review - Palmetto Moon Kim Boykin


Review by Suze

It's 1947 and Vada wants to work and live her own life. She's a society girl and her rich parents have found a suitable husband for her. Justin is the dream of most girls Vada's age, but for Vada being married to this man would be her worst nightmare. Her parents don't listen to her and she sees only one solution, pack her backs and run away. That is how Vada ends up in Round O, a small town where she finds a job and feels welcome.

Frank has a diner in Round O. When Vada walks into his establishment he knows she's the one. Vada lives in a boarding house and makes her own money. She easily gets along with people and she and Frank become good friends and more. Vada is thriving in Round O, but will she be able to keep her identity a secret or will her past catch up with her eventually? What will happen if it does, is Vada prepared to fight for her newfound freedom and the man who's won her heart?

Palmetto Moon is a wonderful romantic story. Vada is a strong and capable woman. She knows she will never be happy with Justin, so she decides to run away and start over. I admired her courage and kept hoping nobody would find her. Vada strongly fights for her rights, she doesn't want to be under anyone's thumb and total control is what her father and Justin are after. Frank is different, he lets her be herself and he admires her strong personality. They're a beautiful match and I kept hoping they'd find their happily ever after.

Kim Boykin's warm and welcoming writing style is a joy to read. She makes Round O and its inhabitants come to life in a fabulous way through vivid descriptions and heartwarming dialogue. Palmetto Moon immediately captivated me. I loved reading about Vada's journey and her fight for independence. It's a great topic for a story and Kim Boykin's execution is flawless. I really enjoyed reading this amazing book.

  11. I enjoy small towns. SUre they can be gossipy, which I still always like, and everyone knows each other. I love the spirit. And this one looks cute

  14. The woman character Vada sounds inspiring, especially because the story is set in the 1947, and Frank is really charming because he can understand a modern and independent minded woman like Vada.
