The Guilt of a Sparrow by Jess B Moore
Magnolia Porter has spent the entirety of her twenty-four years satisfying her mother’s guilt. She was the good girl to her trouble making brother, Lucian – the one left behind to hold her mother together after he died. She is an invisible girl in a small town carrying the burden of her family’s loss and pain. Maggie was nobody trying desperately to be somebody.
Cotton MacKenna is the one with the temper. Of the five MacKenna boys, he’s the one most likely to throw the first punch. Never mind all those fights were a decade ago, all in an attempt to save a sweet girl from her bullying older brother. Now, Cotton has grown up, with his own photography business, yet as the fourth in the line of MacKennas, he would only ever be known for his past. Time for a change.
Maggie and Cotton are more than the labels placed on them, put there by their families, the town, and themselves.
A meddling best friend. Bluegrass jams. Small town gossiping. Love, loss, and family ties. Learning how to be who you are outside of who you were told to be. With humor and plenty of romance, of course.

Author Bio –
Jess B Moore is a writer of love stories. When she’s not writing, she’s busy mothering her talented and stubborn children, reading obscene numbers of books, and knitting scarves she’ll likely never finish.
Jess lives in small town North Carolina with her bluegrass obsessed family. She takes too many pictures of her cat, thinking the Internet loves him as much as she does. She is a firm believer of swapping stories over coffee or wine, and that there should always be dark chocolate involved.
The Guilt of a Sparrow is her debut novel combining her interests in family, music, and small towns into a thoughtful tale of growing up and falling in love. Her second book, Fierce Grace, follows similar themes in a whole new way, and will be available later in 2018.

Magnolia Porter really had been living in the shadow of her brother. She didn’t know how to become her own person, That is until the MacKenna brothers brought her out of her shell. They helped her to bring down her barriers. I loved this book and the way in which it was written. Going back and forth between Magnolia and Cotton. Letting the readers know what they were both feeling and why they were feeling it.
The friendship that sparked and blossomed between Magnolia and Dominic was beautiful. He was there for her no matter what. A bit like her guardian angel.
I love how this is about relabelling who you are and getting rid of the opinions of a small town community and the past. This is heart felt, fun, vibrant and sexy. Did I mention the heat between Magnolia and Cotton? Wow!!! I could of hit Cotton a few times (trust me).
I think my favourite character has to be Dominic MacKenna though. He knew what they both and forced them to go for it. No matter the consequences.
I’m giving this book a firm 4/5 rating.
