Buttermilk Sky by Jan Watson

Book Description:  Weary of the expectations imposed on her by her strict upbringing, eighteen-year-old Mazy Pelfrey prepares to leave her home in the Kentucky mountains for the genteel city of Lexington, where she’ll attend secretarial school. She knows her life is about to change—and only for the better. Everything will be blue skies from now on.

But business school is harder than she thought it would be and the big city not as friendly, until she meets a charming young man from a wealthy family, Loyal Chambers. When Loyal sets his sights on her, Mazy begins to see that everything she’d ever wished to have is right before her eyes. The only hindrance to her budding romance is a former beau, Chanis Clay, the young sheriff she thought she’d left firmly behind.

Danger rumbles like thunder on a high mountain ridge when Mazy’s cosseted past collides with her clouded future and forces her to come to terms with what she really wants.

My Thoughts:  Since Mazy Pelfrey wants blue skies...a life of ease maybe, I think the title of this novel, Buttermilk Skies, is an interesting twist to her "blue sky plan" for life.  Since buttermilk tends to be sour and somewhat cloudy, I feel the book is well titled.
Like most young women Mazy wants a life that has some excitement so when she leaves her strict upbringing and her boyfriend/suitor, Chanis Clay, behind she is more than a little surprised how life follows one, where ever one goes.
Secretarial school, city life, and the changing scenery are not what she "really" thought her move to "freedom" would entail.  Well, there must be more to this life than this, right?  
So, when she meets the very charming Loyal Chambers and he sets his hat for her it seems that her blue sky life is looking better and better.  But even blue skies have thunderstorms.
A great read you'll want to read for yourself!
