The smart–talking, quip–cracking, pop–culture addicted author of A Basic Renovation is back with a new romance for grown ups...
By day, Willa is a mild–mannered scientist; by night, she's on the trail of stolen classified documents. Technically that makes Detective John Tilbrook on her side, but Willa has secrets she can't share.
John is instantly fascinated by the new physicist on the block, even though Willa keeps her distance. A fan of coincidence and happy endings, John has plans for the secretive scientist with the wicked sense of humour.
But Willa has more than her heart on the line – her best friend is at the top of the suspect list for espionage, she's having trouble leading her double life, and somehow her hair just turned purple. As days speed past, Willa's life unravels as she struggles to come to terms with her unexpected feelings for a man she just met. John's a big fan of happily–ever–afters, but will he believe in love and happiness when Willa divulges the real reason she's in town? Will he break the law he's sworn to uphold – for love?

Willa is a physicist as well as an undercover FBI agent. She is part of a team trying to find out who stole classified documents. Her best friend is a suspect and Willa works on finding out who really did it and draw the trail away from her friend. She meets detective John when he stops to help her change a flat tire. His cousin (and best friend) is married to Willa's best friend - small world. John tries to get to know Willa better and wants to spend some time with her but Willa doesn't have time for him. John is very patient and understanding telling Willa he will see her at any time she has. I was really excited to have won this book in a giveaway and really expected to like it based on the blurb. But I found the physics information difficult to follow. It was fascinating but not enjoyable for me. At times people were mentioned but it took a while before we found out who they were. There were times when people were suddenly in different locations without any lead up as to how/why they were there. The fact that virtually every male that met Willa wanted her was ridiculous. I loved the chemistry between John and Willa and that they were older adults. I liked that they both had 'pasts' and found someone to love again.
