Absolutely awesome read. Well developed characters (sub-plot a little weak) who interact believably and well the dialougue is witty and flows very well. There are a few anachronisms on usuage in language, "okay" for one, but not too distracting.
It was hard to like the heronine in this book, although she does grow as a person in the book the leap from where she "was" to where she "ends" is to fast to fit within the story. In my opinion she should have started out less haughty to make the growth more believeable. There really isn't much of a plot/suspense to the story itself but it is still an ejoyable read.
She's the Blonde Bombsehll who once starred in a string of low-budget films and is now a jet-setting, bestselling author. But one too many bites of caviar, menaacing phone calls from her jailbird ex, a tabloid photographer hot on her heels, and nasty gossip about her life send Juliet over the edge. Disguising her identity, Juliet runs...straight into the arms of Cole Sheridan, a small town vet with troubles of his own.
With a malpractice suit hanging over his head and his bohemian parents and ther band of old hippie friends about to converge on his home, the last thing Coles needs in one more snag in his orderly life. But when he spots the raven-haired beauty with the curvaceous body stranded along a lonely streth of highway, he hitches her car to his and tows one more complication his way.
He thinks she's quirky; she thinks he's sexy but cantankerous. She's hiding something; he wants to push everyone away -- until the chaos of Juliet's life catches up with her in Plentiful, Wyoming. Once more she's ready to run..and then Cole kisses her!
Foreign correspondent Roman Chandler has always prized his freedom above all else. Now losing a coin toss has sealed this youngest brother's fate. Finding someone to escort down the aisle is the easy part - every wannabe bride in sleepy Yorkshire Falls is itching to get hitched to this gorgeous, globe-trotting Chandler man. But Roman still lusts after the woman who got away. Stunning heartbreaker Charlotte Bronson has come home to put down roots and get her sexy lingerie business off the gound. She wants a man who won't go chasing off to the far corners of the earth for a breaking news story. He want her to say "I do." Will she -- or won't she? Can the love of the right woman transform a go-it-alone guy into a stick-around-forever kind of man?
Not as good as "Good Girls Do" (which for some reason is not listed under Cathie Linz's titles) and "Bad Girls Don't". I would have liked to have had more of Cole written. She spent so much time on the story-in-side-the story about Sue Ellen's problems that she failed to flesh out the main characters. A big drawback as it makes the story of Leena anc Cole choppy and incomplete.
This one is MUCH better than her last effort as far as the story line, however the writing is choppy in places and I found myself flipping back to see when the changes/switches in viewpoint and story line had changed. Not bad but not a keeper either.
