I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
After I started to read this, it seemed pretty familiar. Come to find out I read an earlier version. I could have stopped and written a review but I enjoyed it the first time so I went ahead and finished reading it again. It was still such a fun read. The mystery of what happened to Della was a good one. Luke and Libby have a connection that Libby fights all the way. She has been hurt before and doesn't want to go through that again. Luke immediately wants to get to know and protect Libby as she uses her investigative skills to cover the disappearance from two years ago. Cash the handsome sheriff also feels a connection to Libby. Cash warns Libby against Luke and Crazy Mike. He is almost obsessive in his compulsion to protect Libby. Luke on the other hand warns Libby against Cash. Who should Libby listen to? Who is Libby falling for?
The journey to a HEA is one that will keep you guessing. Getting a multiple POV in this book was a joy to read. It gives the reader a chance to identify and understand the characters. I adored the puppies that Libby fosters and her adventures into life on a ranch. This Atlanta transplant is living life away from town will all the peace and quiet of solitary living.
If you like a mystery romance, give this one a try.
Ms. Kennedy tells a good story with a great sense of humor as well.
