The last couple of books I read had serious story and/or writing problems, so it was a real relief to read another Jane Graves book. No loose ends, no poorly motivated characters, no badly structured sentences, no intrusive flashbacks. What a relief.

This is just a light read with a competent caring heroine who is 38 and wears a dress size in the double digits. The hero still finds her beautiful and when he's sentenced to community service for inattentive driving, he can't get away from her beca

I LOVED this book. Jane Graves is one of my new favourite authors. This book just flowed so well. With likeable characters and a decent plot i read this very quickly and loved every minute. It's so nice when the author actually lets the H&H acknowledge their feelings for each other and enjoy falling in love before the last two pages. This was a sweet, real and emotional love story. I'd recommend it to anyone. the H & H were both fantastic and so well written. LOVED IT!!!

Overall this is a 4* book, but I'm taking an entire point away because I am sick to death of this particular plot line. (I won't go into it because it would be a major spoiler if I did.) The solution to the murder mystery came out of nowhere, or it least it seemed that way to me. Plus the culprit was way too stereotyped. It felt like a cop-out. However, the writing was as good as ever, and many people won't mind the resolution. It just happens to be a pet peeve of mine.

Intriguing crime story with a good pace and exciting ending. I felt the romance was realistic and l liked her devotion. Cutthroat attorney Ethan is court ordered to spend 40 hours on crime-watch with neighborhood friendly Sandy who owns a local flower shop.

4th in the DeMarco series...after her 3 brothers got their books, this is Sandy's. An easy read...like all the other Jane Graves' books, it kept me interested throughout. Jane Graves is on my favorite author list.

Started out great but then kind of fizzled. Nice twist at the end though

Really liking this author. Excellent if you are looking for light reading material and a bit of a mystery in the story line here.
