Book of Love by Constance Bretes

A librarian, a mechanic, and a psychotic ex. What could go wrong?

When her marriage came to a devastating end, Janice Meyers moved to Montana to try to escape her past and get a fresh start. She's sworn off men, but she didn't anticipate meeting Chris.

After the death of his wife, Chris Jamisen focused all his time and energy on running his auto repair shop and raising his children. He's not looking for love, and when he first meets Janice, the town's new librarian, he never imagines they might embark on a relationship. Sure, he'll admit he finds the smart, sexy blonde attractive, but the frustrating woman expects miracles from him. Her vehicle is practically beyond repair, but she insists he has to keep it running.

As Chris gets to know Janice, he begins to develop feelings for her, but he's reluctant to pursue a relationship. He's Native American, and he worries about the complications of a biracial relationship. He's experienced prejudice first hand, so he knows how difficult it can be.

When Janice's ex-husband shows up seeking revenge, things could reach a horrible end. Will Chris save Janice in time? And will he and Janice be able to set aside their painful pasts and give their relationship a chance?

FINDING HOME AND NEW BEGINNINGS This story kept me captivated and the pages turning as the mystery unfolded.  Janice Meyers is resourceful and a survivor but keeps her life a mystery.  She has left Aspen, Colorado after her ex-husband maimed and nearly killed her. An extremely intelligent woman, she finds a job in a small town working in the local library.  Chris Jamison is a widowed father of four, his children are adults but still partially depended on Dad.  He runs the local garage and has one son working with him, he is also on the town council. Janice and Chris feel an attraction for each other, but at the same time have a way of butting heads often. This story has so many emotions, fear, anger, betrayal, secrets, insecurity, doubts, but also love, family and respect. The plot twists kept me in suspense, the character interaction entertaining and the dialogue witty.
