This was a cute book about a lady who left her ex and the town her ex was in to move to Florida and begin a new life. And thus begins the story.
The side characters are funny. I laughed at the dog, the meddling ex mother in law and the rest of the additional characters. They only added to the story rather than distracting from it. The hero was a nice guy who knew how to do his job (Police Chief). The Jillian was just as realistic to me... learning to stand on her own after a divorce, learning how to stand up to her ex, and learning how to be herself.
Another quirky story involving the eccentric characters of Paradise Beach. The antics of Fielding and his mother tended to be too over the top and take away from the story, but still and enjoying read.
I think this was my favorite by this author. It was different.
Jillie McAllister escaped to Paradise Beach to start over somewhere beautiful...and far away from her philandering ex-husband. But she's already lost her job, run over a mailbox, become embroiled in a heated small-town controversy...and run afoul of the local law in the person of the good-looking Chief of Police Blaise Corrigan.
