Great book!!! This book should be read along with and before Falling for Gracie. the heroine, Jill, is Gracie's best friend and you see a bit of Gracie in this story. Jill moves home after catching her husband doing the "do" with his assistant and getting Jill fired from her job. Once home she runs into Mac, the boy she had a crush on when she was a kid. Gracie moves in with her aunt Bev - reads tarot cards and is a psychic. Mac has an 8 yr old daughter, Emily, who has come to stay for the summer. Bev sits for Emily and the book focuses on that foursome - Mac, Jill, Emily and Bev.

There are a ton of funny secondary characters and a whole lot of romance. I love Susan Mallery books and this one definitely does NOT disappoint!

If you're looking for a fun, contemporary story without too much angst, drama or misunderstanding, then this is the book for you. The characters are normal to slightly quirky people with typical problems (divorce, single parenting, family squabbles, work issues). They're adults who act like adults. You won't find any super alpha males, stupid heroines, or sadistic villains and frankly that's very refreshing. The plot is pretty simple and not that dramatic. The romance is cute and slightly steamy, but could have been more.

I'm an attorney and I found it interesting that the heroine, a corporate lawyer in in a big city, went to a very small town, but the financial implications of such a move aren't discussed in the story. It was a huge paycut for the heroine to go from the type of corporate work she was doing to the type of small town work she ended up doing. The book would have been more believable had the author discussed that particular issue in greater detail.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a very interesting story. Normally I don't like romances. The characters were well done. I like how it is a contemperary romance that isn't heavy on the romance.

A very enjoyable story! Ive read many of Susan Mallery stories and recommend them all. I just wish I could have read Someone Like You before Falling for Gracie Which I also recommend.

Sometimes even a city girl needs the comfort of home. Even though Mac had rejected her back in HS, Jill can't deny the attraction she still feels for him.

I just finished this book & the sequel "Falling for Gracie", which you really need to read together. The same characters continue from one book to the next. I just discovered Susan Mallery & can't wait to read more of her books.

Jill Strathern left town for the big city and never looked bck-until she returned home years later to run a small law practice. It turns out her childhood crush, Mac Kendrick, a burned-out LAPD cop, has also come back to sleepy Los Lobos. Even though Mac had rejected her back in high school, Jill can't deny the attention she still feels for him.
Now Jill and Mac are tangled up in enough drama to satisfy the most jaded L.A. denizens-Mafia dons, social workers, angry exes and one very quirky eight-year-old can make even the simplest romance complicated. And it all goes to prove that when it comes to affairs of the heart, there's no place like home.
