Left On Main is a contemporary romance novel set in the southern city of Madison, Gerogia. In this book, at the start we meet Libby, a young woman who is dealing with heartbreak and divorce and has decided to start over a new life in Madison. In the same town also lives Seth, who runs and operates an antique shop that has been in the family for years and is wary of love because of past relationships as well. When these two meet there is an instant connection and things seem to be going well for a while as Libby settles into her new life and new friendships formed. However, things don’t go smoothly and Libby and Seth must figure out where their priorities lie and what they really want. Ultimately, this is what forms the plot of the novel where each must choose and follow their own heart.
I thought Left On Main - Heart of Madison Series by Crystal Jackson is a well-written book and the setting and backdrop of the novel is quite nice. It brings alive the feel and vibe of a town where people seem to know each other or are at least able to introduce new friends. The characters of both the protagonists, Libby and Seth have been drawn well and come off as realistic, average people who are trying to figure out their lives. Not only this, but the big cast of supporting characters is also quite interesting and fit into the story well. Crystal writes in an engaging and realistic style and makes the thoughts and dialogues feel very relatable. Her descriptions of Madison and its culture such as the vibe of the antique shop, etc. conjure up a vivid picture of the town and capture its essence. Overall, this is a fun and enjoyable read of the romance genre.
