Product Description


An award-winning author, Jackie Weger has been writing romance novels off and on for thirty years. When Jackie is writing, she's anchored in a tiny room with a desk, a chair and a pair of cats. When not writing, blogging or chatting with fans, she's traipsing around the Internet searching for recipes, but much prefers to travel the good earth by foot, bus, canoe, sloop, mule, train, plane or pickup--and let somebody else do the cooking. More than 175,000 readers have downloaded Jackie’s two most popular books, The House on Persimmon Road and Finding Home. Both books have garnered more than 100 five star reviews on Amazon US.

Product Description

If Justine Hale had the time, she'd get in her car and go crazy. She owns two kids, an ex mother-in-law and a bankrupt mother. Money scarce, she moves all into a run-down, two-hundred-year-old house. Lottie Roberts offers to help. She's bossy. She cooks. It's her house. So what if she's betwixt and between? Before Lottie can say squat, Tucker Highsmith steals her thunder with his lazy grin, sexy Alabama drawl and Mr Fix-it talent. Plagued with the demands of her family, Justine dismisses ghost and guy alike. But hidden agendas prevail and Justine is caught in the middle.

I really enjoyed this book. Justine Hale's husband left her, their 2 kids, and his mother to go "find himself". Her father dies at about the same time, leaving her mother without much except some expensive clothes and furniture. The abandonment leaves her feeling many things about untrustworthy men. She uproots her 2 kids, her mother, and her mother-in-law and rents a big house in Alabama in the boonies outside of Mobile. Her computer skills enable her to work from home. On their arrival at the house, she meets her next door neighbor, tough and sexy Tucker Highsmith. They also realize that they are not the only inhabitants living in the house. The whole family is dealing with Phillip's defection in different ways and they all dreaded moving to Alabama - will it work out for them? That is the fun of this book - loved it. You will enjoy this story too - I have now discovered a new writer - Jackie Weger - thank you for this enjoyable adventure.

HASH(0x998960b4) out of 5 stars lovely tradional and sensual romance Aug. 14 2013

Format: Kindle Edition
The House on Persimmon Road. Jackie Weger

ARC supplied by author.

The fourth I've read from Jackie and another fabulous romance. A great stand alone novel, as are all the ones I've currently read from her. After the endless romances where readers have to wait months/years for a conclusion, getting left with those awful, horrible, hated cliffhangers it's such a treat to read a good story, and feel satisfied at the ending, instead of incredibly frustrated. I do like many of the current duo/trilogies but feel they are beginning to dominate the romance genre and that's a shame.
Anyway, this book we meet mum Justine and her family, mum and mum in law and the two children, Lottie, a ghost haunting the house they're leasing, and sexy neighbour tucker and his dad. Jackie's characters are always so well described I feel I know them. Justine, in her thirties (hurrah - another older lady, its not just teens that look for romance) is trying to have a new start after her husband divorced her to become a monk! Money is tight, the kids are unsettled by the changes to their lives, and she has mum and mum-in-law to deal with too. They bicker worse than the kids. Then there's sexy neighbour Tucker also in his thirties, his dad is another great character, and after an accident involving fire he lives in a home during the week, and with Tucker on weekends. Its a typical family mix that could be found on many streets, and a change from the perpetual millionaires/innocent young ladies, bad boy MMAs and high school/college romances that seem to be controlling the genre at the moment. There's a place for them of course, and I've read some cracking ones, but many of us want people we can personally identify with.
I felt for Justine, she was so caring even with the bickering older ladies, and trying to do her best for everybody. I think what she wanted for herself was getting lost in the needs of all the other people depending on her. Tucker was just perfect, typical (in my imagination anyway ) southern gentleman, he was attracted to her right from the start, but didn't want to involve himself with a ready made family, especially ones so full of drama. Yet somehow without him realising they all wormed their way into his heart and home. He then had the tough job of convincing Justine she could rely on him, that he'd be a help and support to her, not just abandon her like her husband did. That he wanted more than just sex from her, he wanted to be part of the family, to love her and be loved if only she could let herself go and let him in.
There's a one step forward two steps back feel about their romance, its hot and sensual but not graphically, its the magic way with words that authors such as Jackie have that create heat and eroticism without needing to be graphic in every scene. Oh - and heart shaped ones? They made me wonder how they worked too!!
Once again a real romance, a story to get engrossed in and feel you're there , over -looking the people, laughing (and I did - lots) and crying with them. A great mix of people and emotions to make a perfect romance once again.
Stars: yes - five of course :)

HASH(0x99896108) out of 5 stars Love and laughter ! Aug. 8 2013
By Babs Z. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Imagine that your husband left you and the children in his mid-life crisis, not for another woman but to wear a yellow gown and become a monk. And that your father died and your pampered mother moved in with you. So did your ex-mother-in-law. Did I mention that neither worked, had ever worked, or even washed dishes ? In an effort to keep the extended family afloat while you get your computer programming business going, you buy a Civil War era house (a "fixer-upper") with its very own resident ghost. Add in the handsome neighbor with a secret and his elderly father. Now you've got a story that sparkles with love and laughter the whole way through !

The author gifted a copy of this book to me in return for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the story line and the Alabama delta setting. I think you will, too.

HASH(0x99896540) out of 5 stars Wonderful And Fun! Oct. 27 2013
By ~DJ Faz~ - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the story of one woman determined to make a new life for herself. She's strong and independent... and she has loads of baggage! The fact that she's accompanied on her journey by her children and her mother AND her mother-in-law (say WHAT?) makes the book all the more entertaining. I cheered when Justine snagged her second chance at love. And Tucker is just, plain yummy. It is no wonder that The House On Persimmon Road won The Maggie Award. Buy the book! You will thoroughly enjoy this love story.

After finishing this book, I came right back to Amazon and bought Eye of the Beholder.

HASH(0x99896528) out of 5 stars 5 stars!! Sept. 15 2013
By Stefanie@Mommy's Late Night Book-up - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Ok, let me start off with I was asked by the author Jackie Weger. I have never read anything from her before. I'm really, really glad she asked me to read her book!! I haven't read a book this cute in a long time.

We start off with Justine Hale, her children Pip,Judy Ann and her mom and mother-in-law. They're moving to Alabama because Justine's husband left them to become a monk. Crazy I know!! They move into the old house and boy do I mean old!! It doesn't come with anything new. But, it does come with 2 things... Tucker, the sexy neighbor. Who falls for Justine the INSTANT he meets her. And, Lottie........ The ghost who's been living in the house for over 100 years.

I fell in love with these characters INSTANTLY!! There was so many times I found myself laughing. Poor Justine was stuck in the middle of her mom & mother-in-law constantly fighting & going back and forth. They've never worked a day in their lives. And, don't know how to live poor. They are trying to find themselves. It's really funny seeing them go back and forth all the time.

You have Tucker and his father Wheeler. Who's in a nursing home except for when Tucker brings him home on weekends. Tucker is always helping Justine & the family to fix stuff at the house. All while in love with Justine. He knows she's got her walls up. And, he gets it 100%. Which I loved about him. He didn't push her. But, he also let his feelings for her be known. Even though she vowed to never get into another relationship. They're something about Tucker that has her thinking different.

Pip and Judy Ann are adorable. They are def upset about their father leaving.They def push their mother's patience. Pip along with Wheeler start fishing and start taking pictures. It's really cute. Judy Ann stays close to her mother and grandmother.

Lottie on the other hand. She's a ghost who's "betwixt and between" and determined to regain her physical form. Everytime I read about her I laughed. The whole book she drove the family crazy. They all thought they were seeing things. Or couldn't figure out where their stuff was going. All she wanted was to be alive.

In this book you'll see a family learn to rebuild their lives. Learn to rebuild their family. I loved how they fought like crazy. But, they still watched each other. I loved watching Tucker & Justine grow. They both had a lot of baggage. They had a lot of walls to climb over. I loved the relationship Tucker and the kids had. And Lottie.... She was determined to get her life back as well. You will most certainly will not be disappointed!! I loved everything in this book. I am so glad I read this book. I'm excited to read more from Jackie Weger!!

HASH(0x998969e4) out of 5 stars Starting Over March 17 2014
By BirdieTracy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A mother with her two children, her ex mother-in-law, and recently widowed mother, moves to Alabama after being basically deserted by her husband. There she meets a handsome man named Tucker who lives in a nearby barn converted into living quarters. Obviously this has the makings of a romantic story. There is more. The house comes with it's very own ghost.

This ghost is named Lottie, a woman who died at the end of the Civil War. Her greatest desire is to somehow regain her physical body. She is an interesting character with very definite opinions on a wide range of subjects. She views the new household as chaotic and most of the inhabitants as ill mannered. Not to mention the lack of attention to the cleanliness of the house. She is kind at heart- she just comes from a time when everything was much more...structured.

There are a few things about the story that stretch credibility or are irritating. Justine rents a home in Alabama for a year without ever seeing a picture of it. This from a woman who makes her living as a computer programmer. There are several instances where she is called Justin. There are several times when the change of scenes is so abrupt that it takes a minute to figure out where you are. There is also an obvious, and unfortunate, lack of proofreading.

Tucker is the real saving grace. A generous, strong, funny, fundamentally kind man who falls hard for Justine. A good thing because entirely too much of the story is devoted to her constant fear of becoming involved with a man like her ex husband. It goes on and on. And on. I am not without sympathy but after the nth time it becomes very irritating.

This is not a bad book. It certainly has the bones to become a very good book, but between Justine's constant "fears" and the under utilization of Lottie it didn't make it.
