3.5 Decent Stars!

This was a decent book for a debut author, which I'm pretty sure this author is. It did have a good suspense theme to it, though it was a little anticlamatic, the story never dragged. I did feel we could have used more details and descriptions, because it was a little redundant. It was also insta-lust, and became insta-love a little too quick, and even then I felt as if they only loved each other for their looks really; their hearts were never really in it. This book was also

This is m first time reading a book by this author. I really like how the characters were well written and you can see and feel what they are going through. Each character had their own dark secrets that caused a lot of hurt and pain in their life, which led them to make some unhealthy choices for themselves.
I loved Aunt Polly she was a wise smart woman who knew what everyone needed to bring some love and happiness to their life. I like the way she was able to get her niece Evan and her neighbor

I loved this book! I felt I knew and really cared about Levi and Evan, the main characters, as the story went on. This talented new author gave them depth and a real sense of humanity. The supporting characters gave the story layers and they were just as endearing. The plot/plot twists was such a fun ride as a reader. The erotic scenes were raw, real and perfect. Grab a glass of wine and settle in. You won’t want to stop reading. I can’t wait to buy her next book!

This is a new Author to me and I found it to be a well written story. The story takes place in Kendrick, Pennsylvania and is Evan Masters and the secret she keeps and Levi Kinkaid and the lie that saved him. Two people hiding from the truth that just might be what sets the other free.I enjoyed reading this book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Definitely worth the read!!!

I had passed this book by so many times. To be honest, the blurb really didn't do it justice. This book is so much more than what the blurb says. It is so moving! I really enjoyed this story. Evan and Levi come so far. Looking forward to reading Rex and Della's story. J. McCreary wrote such a moving story. Thoroughly moving and intriguing story. Have some tissues.

This was a sweet, slow burn love story about second chances, and missed opportunities.

This was a great Holiday read. The story was very well written with great characters. The story drew me in and I had it finished in one sitting. I would highly recommend this read.

Evan and Levi were made for each other. Both had less than perfect childhoods and both had secrets that were long buried. But would they stay buried? And what did the old sycamore tree have to do with everything? Read this sweet tale to find out!

This was a sweet story about a lost woman and her finding her way back home. It has all the makings of a great story, tragedy, love, and Aunt Polly (my new shero). I highly recommend!

This is one of my favourite reads so far this year. All of the characters drew me into the storyline, which was fresh and rivoting. I did not put the book down until I finished the last word. Loved it.

Under the Sycamore is a full-length, standalone romantic suspense novel that is a heartfelt and touching story that may contain triggers for some.
