Synopsis of Book:
Here in this peaceful community, folks look out for one another like family, though sometimes a little too well. In a town like this, it's hard to keep a secret—but Dr. June Hudson has managed to keep one heck of a humdinger.…
Though visits from her secret lover, undercover DEA agent Jim Post, are as clandestine as they are passionate, somehow it fits with her demanding schedule as the town's doctor—a calling that requires an innate ability to exist on caffeine, sticky buns and nerves of steel.
But how can a secret lover compete with a flesh-and-blood heartthrob from her past? June's old flame has just returned to town after twenty years—and he's divorced. June is seriously rattled. So when the town's most devoted wife takes buckshot to her husband and some human bones turn up in her aunt Myrna's backyard, she's almost happy for the distraction.
Sooner or later, love will have its way in Grace Valley. It always does.
Why I Read This Book: I enjoy reading Robyn's books. Also I read this with the Novel Ladies on Goodreads
What I liked: I enjoyed how this book moved smoothly along. I also enjoyed getting to know each of the characters a little more. I still like June and Jim as well as John and Susan among others.
What I didn't Liked: I did not like having some unfinished parts at the end of the book, lol, but I know that is done so you will pick up the next book. I also did not like Chris or his boys. They were just not nice.
Overall Impression: I enjoyed this book a lot more than the first book in this series. I think I got to know the characters a lot more. There were some sad parts in the book but also some happy times. There is a big surprise in this installment of the series and I am very happy with it. I can't wait to see what happens next. I loved how John and Susan and Mike and Julianna had their little tiff and how it played out in the book. There were also some new townspeople introduced. I did not care for Chris and his boys but I liked Harry the new Pastor. Another thing I liked was the mystery behind the bones found in Myrna's yard. I suggest picking this book up. 5 stars.
