Jasper Creek is home. I’ve lived here my entire life. So I couldn’t have been more excited when we bought the fixer upper on Libby Lane. That was until “we” became “I”. After I cried out every ounce of my heartbreak with a hammer in my hand, I learned how to be happy alone. Now, all I need is a porch swing, the warm country breeze and a glass of sweet tea. But when I run i ...more

This first in her Jasper Creek series is about Cora, who has spent her life in the small town of Jasper Creek, and it's newest resident and police officer, Wyatt. Cora has been content on her own, working in her mother's flower shop, spending time with her best friend Blake, and getting over heartbreak from years earlier. But when she meets the new cop in town and he starts stopping by to swing on her porch, sometimes talking and sometimes just being content, she starts to feel things that she h ...more

This was a sweet small-town romance that made me feel like I was there on Libby Lane in Jasper Creek hanging out with some friends and family. Cora was a sweet but tough country girl who loved her friends hard, loved her sweet tea, and strong willed. She meets the gruff Wyatt one day while running and gets herself injured and they quickly learn that they are neighbors. She soon realizes that there is more to him than meets the eye, that he is caring, loyal, hardworking, and she has a strong attr ...more

Libby Lane is a country cute contemporary romance with a hint of southern drama and suspense that blends so well like the sweet tea they serve in the novel!! CE Johnson is a genius with this story based on the characters she’s written alone. The characters in this book are everything!!! Especially Mae, She is my older spirit animal!!! I loved this book so much and think you all will love it too!!!!

This is the first book in a new series, and what a fantastic introduction this story is! This is Wyatt and Cora’s story, which is beautifully written, with undeniable chemistry, intrigue, mystery, suspense, heartbreak, betrayal, unexpected twists, which all lead to a humorous and sweet read. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner, and I cannot wait to read more from this talented author, whose work I highly recommend for all.

Literally where can I start?! Five stars doesn't feel like enough to be honest.

Cora lives in a super tiny southern town Jasper Creek. Now this is the type of town that everyone knows everyone and everyone knows your business before you even do it! A new cop moved to town named Wyatt but no one has met him yet. That is until Cora finds herself in a tangle with a snake out in the woods. Wyatt saves the day but has an arrogance about him that makes Cora instantly consider him a jerk. After Wyatt b

Geez! I feel like the super underdog here. I found this book to be a snoozer. I guess because it was too predictable and there seemed to be lacking a deeper element of chemistry between the two MC's.

I love small town, down home books. The lack of what felt like a town in this story. other than the dinner and the few houses they lived in, left me bereft of imaginings.

I lost my interest after a few chapters.

Hot dang!! This is a sweet and intriguing book. Wyatt, the new police officer in town, and Cora were both trying to start over without looking for a relationship. They met in a very unusual way. He quickly became the “rude cop” to her, until they start spending some time in her front porch at night.
You get so sucked into this romantic story of a small town where everyone knows everything. You can’t stop reading it. You will fall in love with the characters as they feel so real. Romance, love, la

Cora is a young woman who is trying to put her life back together. She lives in the small Southern town of Jasper Creek where everyone knows you and your business, so secrets can't usually be kept. When she meets Wyatt, a new detective, she feels that maybe he is her way to getting back on her feet. Wyatt has his reasons for moving to Jasper Creek and ...more

CE Johnson is making a name for herself with Libby Lane. This book has something for everyone and I couldn’t put it down. Wyatt and Cora met in an unlikely way and I knew they were going to give each other a run for their money in more ways then one. Their sass and fire combined with their love and devotion will make you smile. You need to read this book for the flowers, the box, sweet tea and porch swings alone. Just when you think you have everything figured out, there are a some surprising tw

I love Cora’s spunk! She doesn’t pull any punches with Wyatt. That is exactly what he needs. They are two magnets drawn together and they struggle with that at first.

Once they come to terms with where they are going their lives become so much more than they could have imagined alone.

I really enjoyed this book!

This was a book that had me on the edge of my seat dying to know what was going to happen next! I really loved these characters and once I started reading I couldn't put the book down.

There was some serious chemistry, hot steamy moments and some drama that kept me guessing until the very end.

A must read book for sure!

Wyatt and Cora have a connection right from the first contact... an excellent banter that they both feed off of. Their characters are both broken from things from their pasts and they truly don’t realize how much they need each and fight it every step of the way. Wyatt being a cop and Cora the mouthy neighbor with hidden secrets that give her sad eyes he sees from the first moment. Wyatt is the definition of a perfect hero.
A cute story that making you keep coming back for more.

Libby Lane was such a fun read! I didn’t realize when I started it there was an element of suspense. These have been my favorite types of books these days. I loved Wyatt and Cora. They are such a fun couple. Wyatt was so standoffish in the beginning but as he began falling for Cora, the reader realizes how sweet and romantic he really is. I love books like these-the gruff, alpha male falling for his woman and showing his sweet side. I am new to this author but will definitely be reading more!

Endearing, captivating & heartfelt!

I loved everything about this book! CE Johnson wrote such an amazing group of characters that you feel like you’re living right there in Jasper Creek with them. I love the build up of events, how each chapter has you learning a little more about their pasts while looking forward to what’s to come and I enjoyed the unexpected twists and turns! It’s a well-rounded, endearing book with the perfect amount of romance, drama, suspense and humor to keep you wanting mo

Porch swings and sweet tea

I love the setting of this as much as I love the characters. I really felt like I was right there with Cora and Wyatt the way every detail is described. It's the perfect amount of suspense & twists and turns mixed with their love story. Another amazing job, CE Johnson! I can't wait for more stories from Jasper Creek!

A sweet love in the lane

My first book by the author & I loved it!! It was sweet & suspenseful. The sassiness of Cora & the grit in Wyatt was entertaining to read. They met in a very unconventional way & I loved how a silent friendship led to a loving relationship. It's a story with enough sadness, heartbreak, betrayal & love to balance it all out perfectly.

Guys- I’m in love

So I just finished this book and I still have all the feeling flooding thru me. It’s hands down awesome. I wish I had read it sooner. Cora and Wyatt are couple goals. Now to wait for book 2.... I’m hoping it’s Nate’s story!
