This book is listed as #3 in the series; however, it should be #2. In book #2, Candi's store is set up and flourishing, but in book #3, there are a great deal of problems before she gets to open, as well as mysteries solved. They really are out of sequence.
Another thing I did not like about the book was the inconsistency. For example, in chapter 23 it states that Jenny was out of the office when the newspaper was bombed and was safe. But in the epilogue, it says her body was finally found. To fu

“Grady’s a man of action who craves excitement and needs plenty of activity, and he’s seen precious little of either in the ten or so years he’s been our sheriff. Well, let’s just say that since Candi Heart came to town, he’s had plenty to keep him busy, what with the stream of crimes that follows her around. And then there’s the mystery surrounding the woman herself. Suffice to say, Candi’s not quite what she appears and leave it at that.” 1 likes
“The town stood witness to her fall As she crashed to the earth Exposed and utterly vulnerable Her secret lives, lies and truths Stained her skin and lay in mounds at her feet Her foes sat in judgment as a jury, But love came . . . with gentle hands Love dried her tears Love covered her shame Love sheltered her with compassion Love accepted her anyway Love embraced her Love welcomed her home.” 1 likes
