Favorite Quotes:

Are they monitoring your texts now? Should I send a shot of my nipples? My gentleman sausage? Would it get you fired?

“I can show you all the places girls have professed their love for Dominic.” “Oh, yes, please show Penny all the graffiti. Way to keep it classy, Magnolia.” I deadpanned, shifting my weight, and wishing for an end to this conversation. “Don't’ Magnolia me, Dominic Oswald MacKenna.” I sucked in a breath. Maggie middle named me. In front of Penny.

It’s all my sisters

5☆ A Heart warming and Captivating Contemporary Romance I didn't want to end.

The Worth of a Penny is a wonderfully compelling and heart warming romance that swept me away.
It's the third book in the series but can be read as a standalone perfectly fine.

Penny really hasn't had it easy.
Her father makes her feel useless and worthless, he puts her down whenever he can, bullying her.
She has no self confidence and little self worth.

So when Elliot her stepbrother decides to leave and move to Fox River,

A beautifully told intimate story about love.This is the type of story you don’t just read you live! You take every breath and feel every emotion with these characters. A definite character driven story that will worm its way into your heart. Jess B Moore has a special talent of creating characters that pop off the pages!

Penny has not had the greatest of upbringings and her confidence is shattered. In need of a fresh start she moves to Fox River with her stepbrother. There she gets a new job, a

The Worth of a Penny by Jess B. Moore is the third book in the Fox River Romance series, but it was a wonderful story that I read as a standalone and enjoyed very much. Starting with the cover that gave me a feel of the sweet, shy Penny, I felt I knew her by the time this story ended. Penny has not had the greatest of upbringings and her confidence is shattered. Her father has belittled her most of her life, then her boyfriend dumps her and starts rumors in town about her, that most of the towns ...more

I’m in love with Jess B. Moore’s writing. It’s beautiful, serene and sweet, and makes me feel like I am part of the world. I feel as though I know the characters personally, and I’m right at home.

This book touches on sensitive topics and is filled with emotions. It is also sweet and wonderful. Everything I expected from Jess B. Moore. She has become one of my favorite authors to read, because she takes a genre I don’t read a ton of and makes me obsessed. So, thank you, Jess!

I highly recommend re

This isn't my first rodeo in the world of Jess B. Moore's books, so I was already ready for a lot of emotions, from tears to laughter, from excitement to falling in love with the characters... but are we really ready for a book from an author we really like? Yeah, I was ready... not really. Although I thought I had prepared my heart for all the adventure, I was still surprised with my feeling and thoughts through out the reading journey, because that's the power of Jess B. Moore's writing style. ...more

I didn’t want this book to end! It’s a beautiful story, with a lovely heroine. And just like Penny, the book is sweet but there’s a lot of strength beneath the surface. The title is clever: a penny isn’t apparently worth much, and our Penny felt like that with her unforgiving family and first boyfriend. However, without pennies we’d never have pounds, and in the same way Penny learns that she is valuable, deserves to be cherished and has a lot to contribute.
The setting of Fox River is beautifull

First of all, I must say that the cover of The Worth of a Penny is beautiful. It makes you want to follow her into the story and as I read this sweet, heartwarming romance that is exactly what I experienced. A complete treat for the eyes and heart, Jess B Moore's story-telling really did transport me to  Fox River. With a host of wonderful characters and a pleasantly paced romance, this was right up there with chocolate for a sweet, pleasing treat. I have not read the preceding books in the Fox ...more
Jess B. Moss takes us back to the small town of Fox River, North Carolina. This is Penelope and Dominic’s journey to finding their HEAs.

Penelope has always been a good daughter to her wretched father. In fact, she has done everything she can to make him love her, but no matter what she does he makes sure she knows that he thinks she is absolutely worthless. Adding insult to injury, her longtime boyfriend has shattered her heart. When her half-brother comes for a visit, he convinces her to leave

This is the first book I have read by this author and awwwh this is such a beautiful, heart-warming and uplifting story. Just what I needed. Perfection. At the beginning I felt so sorry for Penny she deserved so much better for herself…
Bring in hot, superhero and adorable Dominic and that soon changes her life in more ways than one. He’s the perfect gentleman, the perfect character. Like a dream come true, that can’t be real right?
An easy to read story, one I easily devoured. Enjoyed every minut

Loved this beautiful romance, the third set in Fox River. The author's skill with scene setting and characterisation kept me right there in the story with the characters, and I can't wait for the next one!

Rating 3.5/5

I seem to have a knack for picking up books that are in a series and reading them out of order, this book is the third in the series, for the most part it can be read as a standalone I feel like everything was explained in a way that made me feel like I wasn’t missing out on the other two books. However, I did feel like I was missing out on a lot of the family dynamics it’s probably a personal thing but I just prefer to read a series from the start so I can get a proper feel for ever

As the author, I will not leave a review. I admit I'm biased.

This can be read as a stand alone, and is my sweetest book.

To get maximum enjoyment, read it third, after The Guilt of a Sparrow and Fierce Grace. And don't let the "sweet" thing fool you, it deals with sensitive topics even if it's not super steamy.

One of the hardest things about writing a book review, is trying to hold back when it comes to telling my readers about the story I have read. I really want to tell you everything about this book, because it was wonderful from start to finish. I loved the character interaction and I enjoyed reading as Penny grew as a person.

The love story had me captivated from the start and I willed on the young couple as they experienced new feelings. My heart raced as they grew closer and closer. One of the t

When I saw that the front cover of this book referred to it as “A Sweet Romance,” I will confess that I wasn’t to sure what to expect. Although I often wander into the romcom Chicklit genre, out and out romance isn’t something that I would normally pick up. However, something about the blurb for this one caught my attention, and I am so glad that it did.

Although this is most definitely a sweet romance, this is not in a saccharine, sickly way, it is more that the strong family bonds, and the welc
