Love is just around the corner . . .
Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.
Mitch has been eyeing his beautiful neighbor for a long time. He jumps at the chance to help her, and soon their formerly platonic relationship gets very hot and heavy. But when Mara gets a disturbing phone call from her cousin's kids, she gets pulled back into the life she's tried so hard to leave behind. Can the hot law man convince Mara to let go of her past-and build a future with him?
I really enjoyed this book. Narrator was good. I got quite a few laughs but loving and serious too. I guess that's why we women love these kinds of books because these men in these books are fictional and don't really exist.
I enjoyed Mystery Man. Law Man, on the other hand, was a bit of a yawn. Each chapter pushes the reader further into Mara's head...and its a confounding place full of self doubt with no way out! It wasn't until the last few chapters that the story unfolded and we're finally allowed exit. If only the plot (full of killers, mishaps, interesting characters, etc.) could have been explored more.
