Detective Kyle Anderson is a man of simple tastes and reasonably low expectations. Give him a juicy steak and no homicides, and he’d call it good. When his sister Katelyn got engaged to his best friend Dominic, he’d figured the worst of the unnecessary drama in his life was over. But that was before Dom’s free-spirited, twig-eating, exasperating sister Demetria came back to Nebraska and completely hijacked the planning of the wedding, starting with inviting Dom’s ex-wife Isabel. Now Kate’s so determined to prove Isabel is up to no good that she insists Kyle date her to keep her away from Dom. Soon Kyle is so knee deep in Anderson-Valentini dramatics, he’s thinking of changing his name and moving to Tibet. If he could just get Demi the impossibly sexy granola-flake off his mind long enough to do it…
Author’s Note: Contains both Dom and Kate short romances The Bird Day Battalion and The V-Day Aversion, as well as the full length novel The Good Life.

Fun and frisky romp in the heartland
This book is funny and more lighthearted than the Downey books. I enjoyed the Downey Trilogy a great deal because of all the drama and family dynamics, and while The Good Life characters bring less angst, there's still a ton of quirky family dynamics and interesting characters. There were plenty of steamy scenes and romantic moments that left a bit of a cheesy grin on my face, but I think what I enjoyed most was all the family and friend interactions; these characters felt like real people I'd like to hang out with and I wouldn't mind more stories with them. Any book that makes me want to know what happens next to even the tertiary characters is a win in my estimation.
The Good Life=A Good Read!
The Good Life brings back well-loved characters in a new adventure full of intrigue & laughs! A great summer read!
