I surprised myself and found I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would. The writing was great; very funny and very real. I really felt I understood Jillene and there were times I felt very proud of her. The story with Vince's dad seemed a little out of place, but I did like getting to know him. Good book.

Jillene McDermott is a widow with two daughters, trying to make a success of her late husband's coffee bar. Things aren't going well and her debt is getting higher. Then she meets Vince Tremonti, a successful True-Crime writer who has returned to his hometown to visit his father and rethink his career. Vince doesn't think the time is right for him to get involved with anyone. But as he and Jillene keep getting thrown together due to her daughters' scheming, Vince must might change his mind.

This was a solid contemporary romance with realistic characters. Jillene and Vince feel like real people with real problems. You couldn't help rooting for them, even if Vince had some commitment issues. I loved the secondary romance in this book which had Vince's dad trying to ask a lady he had loved for years to a Lobster dinner. My only problem with this book was that Vince took until the last few pages of the book to actually tell Jillene about his career problems that had brought him back to his hometown. My rating: 4 Stars.

Jillene is a mother facing the trials of life as best as she can. She is a widow with two preteen daughters, a struggling coffee bar, and a mountain of her late husband's debts. While she may need a white knight, she does not really want any more complications like romance in her life. However, her daughters have different ideas and place a personal ad, hoping to find happiness for their mom.
The answer to their prayers comes in the form of Vince Tremonti, a true crime writer who fears his soul is becoming too dark from long exposure to the murk of humanity's basest elements. He has come home to try and find some peace with himself and his career. He finds himself continually involved in Jillene and the girl's lives, and falling in love reluctantly. Yet, he plans on making his stay a temporary one, so how can these three females fit into his world?
