Rating: 2.5 stars
I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
This is the first book I've read by this author and I have mixed feelings about it. I loved the set up, a small town sheriff and a local girl who shows back up in town after spending the last five years in prison. It made for an interesting dynamic.
As I said, this book had potential. And don't get me wrong, it's not a bad book. It's just not great either. Which, in my opinion, is sad because it could have been.
Remy and Coraleen were great characters. I loved their back story...how they met and everything that led up to her going off to prison. They were both good to a fault. Him going above and beyond to uphold the law. And her willing to do anything for those she loved including breaking the law.
What I thought needed work was the execution.There was a lot of repetition of situations and wording. The heroine was in a prison called AZ/PC and that must have been stated at least fifty times in the book. Also, the characters felt the need to continue to refer to the hero by both his first and last name. It felt odd and out of place in a conversation between friends.
I would recommend this book to those who like small town romances with characters willing to go above and beyond for the ones they love.
