Welcome to Adams Grove... where wrongs are righted with just desserts.
All the four-leaf clovers in the world couldn't make Brooke Justice feel lucky these days. When her soon-to-be ex refuses to stay out of her business, she decides a fresh start will turn her luck around. She retreats to the small town of Adams Grove, Virginia. But when someone breaks into her new home, she immediately suspects her ex. Frightened for her safety, Brooke calls a private investigator - but she doesn't expect her whole body to tingle when he asks if she needs his protection.
For years, Mike Hartman refused to let love into his life. Still reeling from a devastating loss, he never expected to fall for a client. Yet the more time he spends with Brooke, the more he grows to care for her. And when her life is put in danger, Mike knows he must act quickly - before history tragically repeats itself.
I'm not a fan of books with sexual violence to women. It's just too disturbing for me, the love story part was nice. But I can't stomach the violence of rape.
I liked the book well enough, but some of the situations made me think that the leading lady was thick in the head. No one gets it a car with a mugger... hell you are in a gas station for God sake... just made me go what the heck... and the on again off again thing was annoying... and sometimes the author left out who was taking care of the lead's dog... didn't feel right... let's go away for the weekend... oh I'm back home and the neighbor girl was watch it... like the dog was an afterthought. .. I did finish the book... but I won't read it again.
The story was very entertaining and had me on the edge of my seat more than once,I will definitely read more from this author
