Life in Majestic, Colorado is boring for Deputy Lanie Prescott. When she gets the chance to move to another law enforcement job out of town, she jumps at it. Yet, on the night of her send off party, the offer falls through, leaving her stuck in Majestic, unemployed, and with a broken leg acquired trying ot apprehend a suspect. Still, Lanie makes the best of things, made easier when her replacement turns out to be handsome and charming Paul Caberra.
Paul finds life in star struck, quiet Majestic just what he needs to soothe the ache of an unresolved case he left in Miami. He never meant to romance Lanie, especially knowing she is only there temporarily. As neighbors in a duplex, though, the two find they have much in common. Friendship quickly becomes something more, but their time is limited.
*** Ms. Holm, like fellow Mira author, Debbie Macomber, brings a small town to life in her charming romance. Though light on action and suspense, it is long on laughter and warmth. ***
