You really have to have read the previous titles in the Colton's series to enjoy this story. Wes, our hero sheriff, is still trying to solve the Walsh murder but there are so many red herrings it's hard to tell who did it. Unfortunately, Wes picks this time to fall in love with Lily, the bad-girl-turned-saint of a librarian who has one awful secret.

Luckily, Wes doesn't have his father's mean streak and is a good lover! That's pretty funny and eww at the same time since it's just too much inform

This book is a quick and easy read. It started with so much meat and back story that you found yourself wanting to read the other books in the series, and I think I just might. I loved the romance, but it did feel a little...dry. Like it was an after thought. And the conclusion seemed lacking. Everything else in the book was treated with more "oomph", but the quick tie up with the dad, with the towns people, with the finalizing of the HEA was ...I just wasn't with it. I know these books have a f ...more

Lily Masterson wanted to believe that after 15 years, she and her 14 year old daughter, May, would be able to come back home to Honey Creek without causing an uproar. How wrong she was. 15 years ago, Lily was a wild child. Doing anything and everything to rebel against her parents' stick control. Lily is prepared to take the gulling talk from the town, however the difference now is that it's not only her that negative comments are being said towards, but May too. On top of that, she feels this d ...more

Another book I read on and off during the past semester, and one I bought solely because of the cheesy title. Librarian romances are awesome! Pretty enjoyable and a quick read, as everything moves fairly quickly. I really liked Wes, because he was sweet, comfortable, and secure--a nice balance between alpha and beta.

Note that this is a part of a series, so some character references were obviously from past - or forthcoming - installments. This annoyed me at first but eventually I was interested

Meh. For a suspense, the action moved incredibly slowly, and there wasn't a great deal of buildup beyond the initial tension of the heroine's situation. I had thought the Silhouette Romantic Suspense titles could pretty much be read as standalones, but this one definitely relied on the reader following the rest of the "Coltons of Montana" series-- most of the ongoing investigation throughout the book didn't involve the heroine's situation at all, but the hero's imprisoned-but-innocent brother (w ...more

This is the first book I’ve read by Morey and it’s clear the author can tell a story. The plotting is solid, the characters relatable and the attraction between the hero and heroine felt real. What gave me pause was the ease with which the heroine achieves redemption with her hometown. It didn’t feel real to me as memories linger and I had to suspend disbelief to accept such a tidy and unrealistic ending. ~ Renee,

A decent enough read to pass an hour or so but what knocked this down to a two star read for me was the actions of the victim support officer. I don't know if victim support officers are bound by any sort of confidentiality agreement but there is just no way that I can see one revealing the nature of a crime or any details at all to someone they don't know, who doesn't already know the truth and is in no professinal need to know, especially this type of crime.

I can't belive how much I didn't hate this book. Read it ironically, but allowed myself to be pulled into the improbable plot and overembellished love story. Definitely a Snowed-in-on-a-Saturday-what-do-I-do? book.

I don't like the implication that Lily has to lead a goody-two-shoes life now to make up for being very sexually active when she was younger. I hate the way most of the town judges her. It's way over the top, and I can't help feeling like the message is- she got what she deserved.

I've never read a romance novel before this. The book wasn't bad, but a little on the cheesy side.
