It's just another uneventful visit to Trouble to see his grandfather for Mike Taylor until he spies a pretty lady walking on the road in the middle of nowhere. She's barefoot and carrying a tire iron, and though the cop in Mike is cautious, the curiosity about her wins out. Mike believes his trip just got a little brighter until he learns who she is - Jennifer Feeney - and she's the niece of the wacky Feeney ladies, Ivy and Ida Mae.
Jen only suggested to her aunts that they check out a retirement center. She didn't expect they'd make her life hell by dumping her off on the side of the road. Well, she can handle her relatives. Too bad the same can't be said about Mike Taylor. Oh, he's nice and friendly, but he clearly doesn't like her aunts and he'll be put off by Jen when he finds out she's the sarcastic author of the bestselling "hate all men" books. But wouldn't you know it? The two unlikeliest people to get together seem to always end up in the same place, with Mike generally rescuing Jen. Is it fate, or the matchmaking shenanigans of someone in Trouble?
Several months ago, Jen's aunts kidnapped Mike's grandfather, Mortimer Potts. Though Mortimer didn't suffer any lasting effects, the women are a force to be reckoned with in Trouble. Ivy and Ida Mae don't want to be forced out of their homes by Jen, who only thought she was doing them a favor. Despite all the problems she's having with her aunts, Jen can't help her attraction to Mike, but is afraid that her male bashing books will ruin any romance. Mike is still recovering from a shooting that has left him wary of romance. Two people not looking for love can't possibly fall in love, right?
SHE'S NO ANGEL is the sequel to HERE COMES TROUBLE and what a wonderful follow up it is. Mix in a little suspense - who is making threatening calls to Jen. Throw in a little history - did Aunt Ivy have more to do with her late husband's death than she let's on? Will the real truth ever be found out? It all adds up to a highly entertaining tale that will keep readers turning the page to see what happens next. Two people honor bound by family ties have to get it all sorted out before they can take the next step to happiness. With several threads going on throughout SHE'S NO ANGEL, you can't help but wonder how they all tie in...but they do.
Leslie Kelly has deftly mixed comedy, suspense, and romance in a purely enjoyable story that's sure to please readers. Welcome back to Trouble. You may not want to leave.
