The New Deputy in Town (Harlequin Intrigue) by BJ Daniels
THIS NEW DEPUTY DIDN'T EXPECT HIS FIRST CASE TO INVOLVE A WEDDING AND A FUNERAL
Deputy Sheriff Nick Rogers found out small-town life meant adjusting to two things—gossips and Laney Cavanaugh. And neither was much help in solving a bridal shower murder.
Some days it appeared like everyone in Whitehorse had a secret—including their new lawman. And falling for Laney wasn't a good way to maintain a low profile. Nick might have been new to Whitehorse, but he wasn't above getting his hands dirty. Even if everybody in Laney's family had it in for the victim, and they were fixing for a fight. Wedding bells were always trouble, and, unfortunately, trouble always had a way of hunting Nick down.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
For a Harlequin, I thought there would be more romance. Yes, the mystery was well thought out and written. But, I expect more from the Harlequin name. The love part wasn't steamy, sexy or anything. It was more of a love at first sight and that's it. I wish there had been more emphasis put on the relationship. It this were merely a suspense or mystery, it was great. But it's hard for me to see it as a romance. It's not an awful book. I did enjoy the story line. It's free right now, so it may be worth checking out.
