The book drew me in with the first paragraph & I enjoyed every page after. What's not to love.... a sexy sheriff, a feisty woman, a country town with awesome neighbors. This book is charming, heartwarming, funny, & even a little frustrating. It also has mystery & a fantastic dog- SOLD! I will be reading more by Debra Holt.

This is the first book by this author I've read and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed her writing. It's a nice, easy read that'll leave you smiling. The story of Lucas and Ellie was sweet, with a bit of heat thrown in. Who doesn't enjoy a romantic HEA, thrown together with a bit of suspense and mystery, not to mention a wonderfully protective dog? Ms Holt's characters were multidimensional, their personalities very colorful, case in point Cordelia, and the story itself contained several different factors that fairly grabbed you from the first page and held on through to the last one. Now that I've been introduced to Ms Holt's writing, I'm looking forward to reading more of her stories. This book was provided by Netgalley for my honest review.
