An outstanding or romance and growth. I was attracted to this book because it was a small town romance and included both a librarian and her son with Asperger's syndrome. That automatically hits several of my interest buttons. Although Jesse's ASD is fairly low on the spectrum. he still has socialization issues especially with peers so setting into a new school is tough for him and for his mother. When she finally gets up the nerve to leave Boston and her wealthy and protective family for a job in a small town, she believes that the move will be good for both of them. Then, she catches the first person they encounter fussing at her son with no clue that he has Apsbergers and know clue that he thinks differently, but his guy thinks he knows better than Rose. Too bad because there is something special about him. Before the newly rebuilt library even opens, people are protesting a promotion of banned book week. Life in a small town is really different; there are some great people but Rose have no clue how to deal with some of them. AND of course they all know everyone's business. Most of all, she can't quite figure Dewey out or why her son is so attached to him. I was delighted to discover that it is part of a series.

really enjoyed this book. I was so excited for Dewey to get his story, and did not disappoint me. Dewey is a Mr. Fix It, loves children and people in general, plus animals, but can never have children of his own. New librarian moves into town with her son, Jesse who has Aspergers. Rose is very protective of her son, Dewey tries to bring Jesse out of his shell. Rose tries to bring new ideas to the library, where many of the old fashion town folk don't like. There is an attraction between Dewey and Rose, that both are afraid of pursuing. I loved how they both grew together. My favorite part was when Rose said, Good Guys do wear black, made me giggle out loud. I recieved ARC from Edelweiss for an honest review.

This was the first book that I received approval for through Edelweiss and though it took quite awhile to get approval for, hopefully it will not be the last.  I chose this book, because I have always been a sucker for a cowboy in a black hat, plus Librarian!  When the book opens, we are introduced to Dewey on the football field tryouts for the middle school teams.  Dewey is an assistant coach and is working with the kids.  We very quickly find out that he is a patient, fair man who is good with kids and though he has some shadows, seems to be a good man.   Then we meat Rose and her son Jesse.  Rose is in the middle of relocating from Boston to take over as Head Librarian in the newly rebuilt local library. She had finished driving cross country with her young son Jesse. Jesse has a form of Autism called Asperger's.  Basically it makes him very bad with social cues and gives him some odd quirks.  When Rose and Dewey meet, during his man-handling (per Rose) of Jesse, or Dewey's keeping Jesse out of the firefighter's way (his words), sparks literally fly.  These two seem to butt heads over just about everything. The level of sexual tension was masterful with these two strong willed, used to getting their own ways people.   I especially liked Jesse. He was cute and funny and real.  Reading about a character with Asperger's was new for me. I do know someone in real life that has this disorder and appreciated how honestly it was represented. The more the general population know about autism and it's various spectrums, the less fear and misinformation is out there. It's a win win for everyone. Another important issue covered in this book, was censorship; specifically dealing with banned books in the library setting. I think most of us are familiar with Banned Books week, but finding out about some of the books that are actually on the list is amazing and slightly disheartening.  The fact that censorship is still alive and kicking is even more disheartening. But Rose handled the detractor's skillfully and really gave some great points and sparked some lively conversations about it. After reading this, and looking up some of the author's other works, I realized that some of the secondary characters in the book are from previous books. There doesn't seem to be a formal series, just some books that are interconnected. This book did work well as a standalone, so if you haven't read anything by the author yet, it's not a problem. I enjoyed this book and would happily revisit this great town.  This was a 4 star read.
