About the Author
Rachel Gibson's storytelling career began at the age of sixteen when she ran her Chevy Vega into the side of a hill, and told her parents she'd been the victim of a hit and run. They believed her, and she's been telling stories ever since. Rachel has three children and still lives in her native Boise, Idaho. When not writing, she can be found boating on Payette Lake with Mr. Gibson, shopping for shoes, or forcing her love on an ungrateful cat.

Rob Sutter was a DOG in the past. He was into women way too much. To the point of being a cheat but than he picks the wrong lady and all holy hannah breaks loose when she turns pyscho, stalker and shoots him not once but three times, effectivly ending his hockey career. Knowing that life as he knew it was over Rob heads to his mom to recover and put his life back together. He is successful in doing this in Gospel Idaho. He is on a ski vacation when he runs into Kate.
Now Kate has her own issues. She used to be a P.I. but her last case was the straw that broke the camels back so to speak. She needs to take a break and decides to leave Las Vegas and head to Gospel, Idaho to visit with her grandfather. Maybe, just maybe she will get some clarity. Of course first she has to get there and a stop at a hotel along the way leads to one embaressed incident that just so happens to take place on Valentine's Day and with Rob Sutter of all people. Thinking that she will never set eyes on the jerk again she makes her way to Gosepl and is trying to fit in when one day her grandfather calls her out of the backroom of the grocery store he owns to introduce her to...yup her worst nightmare. Yummy Rob Sutter. Now what's a girl to do? Well, Gospel is small and they are bound to run into each other a lot. So they really have no choice except to let nature take it's course....
Rob and Kate were alternatly obnoxious and fun protagonists. Rob is a jerk.Read more ›
If you have read See Jane Score then you may remember Rob Sutter a hockey player this story is about him and what happens after he is forced to give up playing hockey. Rob is shot by a crazed fan after a one night stand which has made him wary of meeting new people so he moves to Gospel to open up a store. Rob is everything you want from a Rachel Gibson book and the steamy parts are exactly that. The only thing is Kate is not as interesting as she could be and although I read this book in one day while I was ill and really enjoyed it I did feel as though Rachel had rushed through it abit and made what could have been one of her bests just a good read not a great read.
If this is the first Rachel Gibson book please read others by her like Daisys back in town or see jane score as this is Rachel at her best.
This however is still a good read so enjoy!
Loved the small-town American setting, its exactly how I imagine it to be. Kate is a character you can easily identify with and Rob is rough around the edges but you get to glimpse a heart of gold every now and again which allows you to keep rooting for the couple and a happy ending. It is hot and steamy as well as romantic and sincere.
Just a teeeeeeeny criticism though (its so insignificant that it probably wouldn't wind anyone else up but me....) the word HUMMER is always written in CAPITALS which is UNNECESSARY and tremendously ANNOYING. I understand this is probably a TRADENAME thing, but it really GOT ON MY NERVES as I hate being SHOUTED AT in CAPITAL LETTERS.....just a small thing, but it irritated the hell out of me!!
Bring on the Gibson Back-Catalogue now!
I found it a great fun and easy to read. The fact that it ended just how I wanted it to left me feeling thouroghly fufilled. Although some could say it was slighty rushed I was glad it was'nt dragged out along with my suspence.
The only problem now is i cant get my hands on another Rachel Gibson quick enough to see what it brings, although I think Ill be avoiding "Watch Jane Score" due to Rob Sutter appearing in this book previous to this one(I fear it would be like hearing about your boyfriends ex-girlfriends!!)
Although this one is not about the team but an ex player, its still really good, full of funny lines, a strong couple a cute side romance for a older couple and of course a HEA!
When Kate Hamilton leaves her job as a PI in Las Vegas, after helping a psycho track down his family she goes to Gospel, Idaho, where her Grandad lives. Kate wants to just sit back look after her grandad and help him run his store and workout what to do next, after taking a break at a ski lodge for a weekend (although she doesnt ski) before heading to her grandads she approches a hot man and asks him if he wants to see her tattoo up in her room, he turns her down and walks away making her feel stupid when its the first time she has ever apporached someone for a hot night of sex! but she brushes it off and heads to Gospel, where you guessed it her mystery man is!
Rob Sutter. a former hockey player with a wild past of his own, lives a quiet life running his own sporting goods shop and loves to fly-fish. after a bad descion ruined his marriage and his carear he just wants a quite life in Gospel and weekends when he can with his little girl, Kate and Rob are great together I love the back storys the characters get in these books, they make mistakes sometimes big ones that hurt other people but they carry on and try to not make the same bad choices.Read more ›
