About the book:
Mars . . . with Venus Rising (Pelican Book Group, August 2015)
A meddling horse, paper bag floors and a flying saucer on the town square. The little town of Mars has it all---including a brand new resident who might spell heartache for one of its own.
Twenty-something Penn Davenport yearns for an exciting life in the big city and wants to shed the label of orphan that she's worn for years. To achieve that dream, she must pass the CPA exam then move away from the two aunts who reared her after her parents died in a plane crash.
When John Townsend---full of life and the joy of living---moves to town, he rattles Penn's view of herself, her life, and her dreams . . . which isn't such a bad thing until she falls for him and discovers he's a pilot.

I really enjoyed this book! I sat down to just read a chapter to get started on it and see what the book was like and the next thing I knew, I had read the first seven chapters! Penn is an ordinary girl, living life, dealing with a social horse, and a stubborn car. Penn is thrown for a loop when there is a new member at the committee meeting for Apple Fest, and she is annoyed, yet intrigued by him. As Penn spends more time with John, she finds herself liking him, until she finds out what he does, bringing up things from her past. I wasn't sure what to expect from this book as Hope is new author for me and the cover and title are so different from most of the books I am used to reading. This is a quick, fun read and characters whom are so real, and quirky. Penn was a great character to spend time with and I found myself laughing with her at times, cringing and crying and feeling her embarrassment at other times. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a sweet read.
