I just ran across this book and Christie Craig. Admittedly, I'm only half through it but I've already gone back to Amazon and bought all of her other books. I occasionally enjoy whipping through an Evanovich or Phillips book, for some light and entertaining reading. When I picked up this book, I thought it was another volume in the same genre that I'd read quickly and then forget. Not true! Ms. Craig's writing is far and above better than most authors that I've read recently. Her dialogue and characters ring truer than any that I can remember, and I read a LOT. My undergrad degree is in English Ed, so I definitely appreciate a well-crafted story.
I won't give a synopsis, since other reviewers have already provided an outline of the story. My review will, however, touch on the fact that Ms. Craig's characters talk and act like real people, quirks and all. I even enjoyed her smooth changes in perspective among the four characters (the policeman, his brother the P.I., the policeman's separated wife and the murder suspect). You'll get two great romance stories plus a murder, a strong Grandma, heartbroken widowed Dad, and a dog...lots of things going on, with enough back-story for all of the characters to make their relationship struggles interesting.
Highly recommended if you enjoy a light-hearted romance on occasion. You'll be happy with this book!
