I had a great time reading this one. Barely Mistaken had great characters, steamy romance, wonderful dialogue, and was extremely quick to read.

Olivia Cooper's main goal in life has always been to gain the respect of her community. As the daughter of the town drunk, this has been very difficult, but she is finally in a position of respect as the town librarian. When she starts dating a pillar of the community, Adam Rutledge, Olivia knows this will only raise the town's image of her. Meeting Adam
VERY enjoyable read. Olivia's the town librarian and she's determined to prove she isn't anything like her loser family. She's tired of feeling as if her every move is being scrutinized, knowing that one slip-up will have the town painting her with the same brush that covers her drunk and disorderly dad and brother, and her easy sister. She knows that a relationship with Adam, who is not only wealthy but all things respectable, would really give her what she longs for--a solid reputation.

Witty, fun, and well written. Luke and Olivia were both likable characters. It was a simple plot, but with plenty of humor. Worth the read and then maybe another one, too. This is the first Jennifer Labrecque book I have read and I planning on putting at least one more in pile pile to be read.

Kind of embarrassed to have it show up in my list of books, but it's a quick read and, as far as romance novels go, pretty good. You'll get what you're expecting from it and a bit more.

First, let me say this is how I show up at my desk every morning to write. Dahling, I couldn’t possibly write a word unless I was wearing 3-inch heels with a Martini at hand. NOT!!! But it’s so different, and face it, infinitely less scarey than the way I usually work, running shorts and t-shirt with a cup of tea nearby, that I had to put this picture up.

I’ve been an avid reader ever since I was g
