Most Eligible Sheriff (Sweetheart, Nevada) by Cathy McDavid
This title will be auto-delivered to your Kindle on March 1, 2014.
Las Vegas casino manager Ruby McPhee needs to lay low while the police deal with a stalker at work. So she's trading in her high heels for cowboy boots and assuming her twin sister's identity at the Gold Nugget Ranch. Ruby only plans on staying in Sweetheart, Nevada, until the threat back home has passed. But then she discovers a detail her sister forgot to mention—the handsome sheriff she's dating.
It only takes a single kiss for Cliff Dempsey to realize the woman in his arms is someone entirely different…and completely irresistible. To protect Ruby's secret, Cliff maintains her ruse, but soon the lines between duty and desire begin to blur. Ruby and Cliff know they have a once-in-a-lifetime connection, but will they have a chance to let their love grow?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was an ok romance. It was nothing that blew me away. It was cute, twin sisters switch places so to speak, so that Ruby can hide from a stalker. She meets the Sheriff, who of course is sort of single, and was somewhat dating her sister. He can immediately tell the difference between the otherwise identical twins. Hm. Either way, cute western, suspenseful romance, again, nothing spectacular. Though the story is supposed to be centralized around the stalker case, I feel that it took a back ground to the romance. I loved the dog! Sarge was sweet and I enjoy hearing about pets in books. You don't see it too often, and in reality, pets are a huge part of people's lives, so I really like it.
Also, so much time and emphasis was spent on the town that Im hoping this becomes a series, otherwise if its a stand alone, I feel that so much more of the story could have been developed if the story of the town weren't taking over so much of the book. I can't say for sure if I would or wouldn't have bought this if not given it in exchange for review. The blurb sounds great, but I think that the story feel flat on what I had expected of it. But definitely a decent waste of an afternoon if you need a distraction.
