Kendra King ran away from her boyfriend so fast, she almost left her favorite Louis purse behind. Newly-minted doctor Christopher Randall had been the man of her dreams, until she uncovered his dangerous secret.
Moving from Richmond, Virginia to nearby Cory City was easier for the 26-year-old than confronting her ex, and she busied herself with her new career. Soon, handso

I'll start by saying I'm giving this one 4.5 stars. I'm only knocking it down a bit because I wish we got a little more follow up with some of the characters at the end. I can't tell you who because it ruins it a bit.

In this story we have Kendra who is fresh off a not so great relationship with the doctor. She's left him, moved into a new place and is starting over in a new town with a new job and soon, a new boyfriend. Immediately upon moving in she meets Matt, the firefighter. Attraction flie

This was a great summer read. It was about a girl, Kendra, who leaves her boyfriend doctor and moves to a small town. She left her boyfriend doctor due an illegal issue she knew about him. Kendara then meets the fireman who she becomes interested in. While she starts dating the fireman, she also meets a chef that she likes at a local restaurant. the story evolved into a conspiracy about how this small town hospital is so busy and why that is and what is causing everyone to be so ill.

Can she really be smitten with three men at once?

Kendra makes a move to escape her past and heal her broken heart; and while she is surprised by the number of good-looking men in such a small town, seems there are also secrets to be unraveled. Things are not what they appear on the surface, but who can she trust?

Kendra has a dilemma over which eligible bachelor attracts her more: a doctor, a chef, or a fireman. They all have their advantages and personality quirks. All she wants to do is blend into the small town that she just moved into. She doesn't want to get pulled into the politics of a small town, but it seems unavoidable.
I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story to find out who Kendra realized was the man she wanted to be with.

Thank you to Debbie K. Lum and I won this book in a Giveaway.

Very quick, funny and intriguing story that ended up not what I expected. Had a great tempo and kept my interest with a little romance, a little mystery and of course a happy ending.

A well written mystery/romance novel. I can totally relate to Kendra in some aspects. Everything is not as it may appear. A love triangle? Or a personal journey to find the perfect mate? A page turner as the plot twist. A must read

Who was it?

This is a good book. Who did Kendra fall for. You will have to read it and see. Can you pick out the bad boys?

I won this ebook in a Goodreads Giveaway. It was a surprising mystery-romance, wkth the mystery being the better part. The heroine is a little fickle and too quick to fall for a guy. Good read.

A mysterious, hang on the edge of your seat story, with a romantic twist!

Upon reading the title and synopsis to the book that I was to excited to win via a giveaway, I expected to read a story about a woman in the midst of some drama, with three men pining after her.

Boy was I wrong!! The book focuses mostly on the happenings of a small town. Those of us who grew up in small towns know that many things go on behind the scenes and sometimes things are swept under the rug. This made the mysteriou

I received a copy of this book from Goodreads in exchange for a review.

First, I have to comment on the great cover…love it.
Kendra King jumped form the frying pan into the fire when she left her doctor/boyfriend, Dr. Christopher Randall, and their high-end lifestyle for the small town of Cory City. But she didn’t really have a choice. When she discovered Christopher had lied about something HUGE, living with him and covering up the lie just wasn’t an option. So off to Cory City and her BFF to lic
I won this book from Goodreads!!

There is a whole lot going on in the quick romantic mystery. Kendra breaks up with her doctor boyfriend when she finds out his dirty secret and runs away to small town with a lot of scetchy things going on like political corruption and mysterious illnesses. This where Kendra meets and befriends the title characters, the chef and the fireman, but not all is what seems.

The title of this books makes it pretty obvious that one either the doctor, the chef, or the firem

This is an energetically written, quite funny, romance/mystery. I was pleasantly surprised at the wit of the author's writing and

the story revolves around the main character, Kendra King, who moves away from her boyfriend in one day, because of some mystery and possibly criminal activity on the part of the former beau. She settles in small town Cory City, and bonds with a group of townies including a hunky fireman and a hunky chef. But her story gets complicated by scandal in the fire departmen

***I won this book via the Goodreads Giveaway program. This has not influenced my review.***

What a cute, sugary-sweet book! I read it in one day easily. Perfect for the beach or a sick day.

Because it's a quick read, it doesn't contain complex plot lines or in-depth characters. However, the storyline has enough hooks and the characters make sense for this book.

If you like fun romance novels, you'll like this. I especially enjoyed one hilarious scene in the hospital - no spoilers!

I received this book for free from a goodreads giveaway. It was a very quick read and I enjoyed the gist of the book. What I found unbelievable was how fast the main character moved jumped from one bed to another. And seriously?!? After two previous relationships were something sketchy happened she was super quick to jump into the third one and agree to marriage. That part felt pretty unrealistic and fantasyland to me.
Couldn't finish

Not that it's a poorly written book, but it just wasn't for me.

This book is tagged as a Romantic Suspense, but there was really no "suspense". Got a bit over half way and it couldn't keep my intrest. Sad, because I tend to finish everything even if I dont like it. This one just dragged too much for me.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Not at all believable. Martin character sleeps with three different men in the space of just a few weeks and ends up engaged at the end? I think it could've used a bit more thought.

Received this free from a Goodreads Giveaway.

This was a quick and easy read, but I only gave it a three because it felt too short and rushed and the main character was too weird about men. Not weird, really, but the relationships seemed too simple or forced.

If I could give half stars this would be getting a 4.5. It starts out great and ends up with a big twist! I would definitely recommend this book if your looking for a quick read that's also a great story.

This book was received as part of a Goodreads giveaway.

Flaky can’t make up her mind female. Flitting from one guy to the next without trying to find out what she really likes. Not my kind of story
