I liked this book. It has a bit of mystery, alot of romance.....she lives in a small town where everyone knows when something happens.
This was great! I laughed and cried! A great read!
Love Jennifer Crusie! Witty, entertaining and hard to put down...
A great story. Teaches you not to allow yourself to let other people dictate your life.
Another great book by Jennifer Crusie! Absolutely loved this book!
Standard chick lit - but entertaining nonetheless.
A funny, sexy, suspenseful story.
Started out slow, but once I got into it, was a pretty good book.

This is a fun book. The story has everything...hot romance, hilarious dialogue and a good mystery. My rating: 5 Stars.
