Hurricane Season tells the story of sisters Jenna and Betsy, along with Betsy's husband Ty. Betsy was always the sensible older sister until she married Ty, a dairy farmer. Jenna always took the past of most resistance to forge her own path. Now a single mother with two young daughters, Jenna is working in a Nashville coffee shop, having given up on her dreams of pursuing a photography career. Betsy thought her life with Ty was full to the brim but after failing to become pregnant and start a family, Betsy begins to long for something more. Betsy and Jenna have grown apart over the years, but Jenna has just been given the opportunity of a lifetime to attend a special artist retreat for two weeks and concentrate on her photography career. Jenna calls the one person she knows she can depend on and of course, Betsy can't deny her, when Jenna asks if Betsy can babysit the girls for two weeks. Will this time with these young children that Betsy herself wants so badly help mend her broken heart or simply shatter it to pieces? Will Jenna return for her daughters or find the success she has longed for and leave the girls to live with Betsy?
I thought the author was able to authentically voice each character, including Betsy's husband Ty. You could certainly feel each person's struggles and relate to their setbacks and victories. The descriptions both of the retreat in Florida as well as the Alabama dairy farm and beaches were wonderful. There were a few times that the plot could have moved more quickly for me, but perhaps that was simply because I was eager to move the characters forward on their path.
A four star read for me and I will definitely look forward to more novels by Denton. I received this book courtesy of Thomas Nelson through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
