This review is from: Taming the Night (Mass Market Paperback)
Taming the Night was the first book I've read by Paula Detmer Riggs, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. This was a story about two stuboorn, inperfect people finding love.
When Summer Laurence was only 17 years old, she falls in with the wrong crowd and becomes pregnant and addicted to drugs. After she spends 30 months in jail and has her baby taken away, Summer is deYtermined to turn her life around. Armed with a PHD, Dr. Summer Laurence finds herself in Osuma, Washington getting ready to start her dream, opening a counseling facility for drug addicted children. What she didn't count on was her benefactor's nephew, Brody Hollister, the local sherrif.
After Brody's wife is killed by a drug addict out for revenge, Brody vows never to trust drug addicts again and as chief of police, he will not tolerate Phoenix House. Neither Brody or Summer expected the strong attraction they felt for eachother. The two must work through their problems to find love.
I highly recommend this book. The only question I have is this: Coming from the Pacific Northwest I know exactly what area this book is set in. It's called Leavanworth, Washington, not Osuma! The only thing I could guess was that the author didn't want more hoards of tourists coming to the most beautiful area in the state of Washington.
