Gabby James didn’t have the idyllic childhood many in her little hometown of Renlend, Kansas had. High school was a living hell, but when she graduated she couldn’t bring herself to leave Renlend. The town was her prison, but her family’s bookstore, The Looking Glass, was her one true love. It was the place she could run to, and escape the prying eyes of the ones who taunted her.
Shane Compton was a literary agent in one of the most prestigious publishing houses in New York City. He found no greater rush than finding the next big talent, someone who could take the written word and turn it into an art form. In the span of one rude phone call Shane was drawn into the mystery of just who the fiery new author from Kansas was. When everyone else in the office refused to deal with her, Shane willingly accepted the challenge. There was no logic to the madness, but every time he had contact with her, she drove him wild.
Gabby tried every trick in the book to keep Shane at arm’s length, but he had made good on his promise to come to Kansas. He wanted to pull her out of anonymity, he wanted her in the public eye. Now here he stood, on the sidewalk in front her bookstore, and one look told her he was everything she was afraid he’d be. Too bad she was anything but who he thought she was.
Gabby quickly discovers Shane has more on his mind than just books and with a little help from an ornery matchmaker, he shows her a whole new life through her looking glass.

About the Author
When asked ‘when do you have time to write’, Amy Gregory simply laughs. The real answer is, “in bits and pieces”. She and her husband live in Kansas City with their three fantastic kids that keep them running in three very different directions. Because she sits so much, she always carries a notebook with her at all times.
She has an off the wall, snarky, off the cuff sense of humor that often shocks even those who’ve known her for years. And she loves that her children have all been blessed that ability to make others laugh as well. At least she’s grateful most of the time! Her husband often teases her about how she “makes this stuff up” when he’s reading a piece of her work. … The answer—“it just comes to me when I’m typing”. Scary thought, huh!

The Romance Vault’s Verdict: ♥♥♥♥♥
I received an ARC of Gabby Revealed in return for an honest review.
I’ve got to go in straight away saying I pretty much loved this book! I have never read anything by Amy Gregory before, so I was wading into the dark so to speak on how I would receive this book. To my surprise this ended up giving me a late night as I started it and then found I didn’t want to put it down till I finished it.
I found this a great piece of romantic escapism. I loved Gabby’s personality and I had a big smile on my face a lot of the time. How she and Shane interacted was great and their banter and conversations back and forth were great fun to follow. I absolutely adored all the people in this book even the ‘nasties’ because even those nasties played their parts extremely well.
I’ve got to mention John, oh what a love he is and oh how I cried! Jeepers this book sent me through a lot of emotions, anger (at the nasties), smiles and laughter, tearful, happy, sad…… this is what made it such a good book.
I loved the whole story of Gabby being a reclusive author and her reasons for staying anonymous were amazing. Shane being her agent and spending the past 5 years chatting over the phone with her, or I should say taking the tongue lashing over the phone lol, finally gets to meet her and beat her down ☺ Even Shane didn’t know her as such or had seen a picture of her till he showed up on her doorstep. I was going to like it anyway as I love books about books, Gabby owns a little bookshop but she’s also a famous author unbeknownst to anybody, she’s kept it a secret from all but one person, John. Gabby’s had it tough in high school and from there it sets in motion her reclusiveness and her need to stay unknown. Shane sudden arrival sets in motion a chain of events that changes Gabby’s future but she’s not going down without a fight ☺
Great book and I am definitely going to be reading book 1 of this series and will also be adding any future books Amy writes too!
