Good book. I liked both Ellie and Jed. Ellie came to Larkville to connect with the family she just found out about. No one was at home just then, so she ended up renting a room from the sheriff. Ellie was very skittish and had terrible self esteem. As a dancer she had developed an eating disorder and she is still recovering from the toll it took on her body. I liked seeing her as she started to recover. She also got involved in some things in town and made some friends. Jed came to Larkville as ...more

Stay with me here. I’m about to do something I’ve never done before.

I’m going to review a Harlequin novel. Hello? Still there?

*Waits for men to leave the room*

So, now it’s just us women, let me confess. I have read Mills and Boon. I read one of my mother’s when I was a teen. I was not exactly impressed.

I was forced by my creative writing lecturer (Hi Toni!) to read one called The World’s Oldest Living Married Virgin (not even kidding!) as a lesson in Romance structure. I read it.

When New York came to Texas... City meets country in Slow Dance with the Sheriff by Nikki Logon.

This is the story of Ex-ballerina Eleanor Patterson and Sheriff Jed Jackson two very broken people who arrive in Larkville seeking different things….. Love and relation not being one of them.

I’m a sucker for books with deeply scarred characters who must struggle to find peace and happiness. Overcoming angst is my thing. Author Nikki Logan provides angst and relief in spades here.

After former ballerina Eleanor Patterson discovers that the man she called father was really her stepfather, she drives from the Big Apple to poky Larkville, Texas, to meet her siblings since her real father has just died.

There she meets Sheriff Jed Jackson, who puts her up in the guest house on his property

An exceptional tale about acceptance, coming home and the healing force of love, Slow Dance with the Sheriff is the second title in the unmissable Larkville Legacy continuity from Harlequin Romance!

The eminent Patterson clan has ruled the upper echelons of Manhattan society for decades. The New York social scene was in awe of their unbelievable wealth, polished good looks and effortless elegance. Yet their sophisticated exterior hid a plethora of shameful secrets and despicable lies that the Pat

This was a surprisingly powerful read. I connected with both protagonists and the anxious, forgiving dog. Lots of elements that tugged on my emotions here, from the damaged heroine unable to love herself to the wounded man unable to forgive himself. This isn't a perfect read, but it is compelling and emotional.

Excellent story. Texas issues minor really. Lots of lovely angst. Enjoyable.
