Book Description

When she was known as an overweight kid from a “loony” family, he often rescued her from bullies. Now she’s come back home all grownup and gorgeous, and he’s the one who will need rescuing.
Sheriff Rob Townsend of Daredevil, South Carolina remembers Jenny Creighton as the girl mean kids called “Jumbo Jenny.” He was compelled to protect her on more than one occasion, a brand of heroic kindness Jenny never forgot. Jenny’s returned to the small town to claim an inheritance and open a flower shop. On the inside, however, she’s still the chubby girl who doesn’t want anyone to remember her humiliating past.
Rob has turned into a hunk with a painful history of his own—one that makes him the biggest heartbreaker south of the Mason-Dixon line. When he becomes her best customer—buying flowers as goodbye gifts for a growing line-up of ex-girlfriends—the women in Daredevil begin to run from Jenny and her kiss-goodbye bouquets. How can she build a business when all the single gals in town are scared to see her on their doorsteps? And what are the secrets behind her childhood hero’s love-’em-and-leave-’em lifestyle?
Trish Jensen is the bestselling author of more than a dozen novels. Visit her at www.TrishJensen.com

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Star Review! April 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
"Jumbo" Jenny returns to her hometown of Daredevil. Now thin and successful, she opens a flower shop and sends a lot of 'Dear Jane' bouquets to the ladies in town, courtesy of her childhood crush, Sheriff Rob Townsend. He was the first boy to show her kindness, and she wasn't fond of his apparent playboy ways. Especially when it meant that the women of Daredevil took off running when they saw her coming.

Rob doesn't recognize her at first, and she isn't quite sure how to feel about it. She's torn between being flattered about her new appearance and sad that he can't see the little girl he once defended. After spending the day with her during the town's Founder's Day festivities, he finally recognizes her - but realizes he desires her as well.

She comes clean rather quickly, and he doesn't hide the fact that he knows who she is - so no angst there. She is convinced, however, that the town will ridicule him if they find out he's dating one of the strange Farnsworths. Rob has his own issues stemming from the censure of his brother, Trey. Trey was a firefighter who was badly burned. Upon learning that his recovery wouldn't be quick or total, his wife leaves him. The person that helps her leave? Rob's fiancee. So Rob is very careful not to let any woman close to his heart or his family.

In a bit of a test, he arranges a dinner at his brother's house for the three of them, and Jenny (of course) passes with flying colors. She could never be someone who judges based on looks. Her reactions to and conversations with Trey rang true - it wasn't all hearts and flowers - she didn't mince words or step delicately. In fact, she follows in her family tradition of doling out home remedies by giving Trey burn cream.

A cute little romance, it was a fun and fast read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trish knows the South! February 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great read, and the lead male character, Rob Townsend, is an interesting study. A southern guy who's loved a lot of women and in the end finds the right one. That journey, love found between two very unlikely people, makes the book special. Trish writes humor mixed with real human feeling remarkably well. You'll love this book, and any other one that she's written.

This book was a very enjoyable read. The only thing I didn't like about it was that their relationship grew so fast it almost seemed rushed. But I did enjoy the concept of doing little things to help brighten people's days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, small-town, romantic comedy May 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
When she was a child living in Daredevil, South Carolina, Jenny Creighton was overweight, and her peers taunted her with the cruel nickname, "Jumbo Jenny." Not only that, her mother was considered "loony." Rob Townsend was a few years older than her and very protective of the little girl, standing up for her against the bullies on many occasions until Jenny's family moved away when she was 10 years old. Decades have passed, but Jenny never forgot his kindness, and he was at least part of the reason she has returned to Daredevil and opened a flower shop.

Jenny has slimmed down greatly, not from dieting, but from loss of appetite due to grief at her husband's death. No one recognizes Jumbo Jenny in the lovely widow she is today--including Rob, who has grown into a handsome, sexy man and is the town's sheriff. Jenny doesn't rush to point out who she is, because she doesn't want to remind everyone about her unhappy past. She is enjoying too much the way everyone sees her now. In an attempt to help out Jenny's business, Rob begins ordering from her expensive flower arrangements to send to various women of Daredevil when he ends his temporary, romantic relationships with them. Rob is the local heartbreaker who has dated every attractive woman in town, and many outside of Daredevil. He never stays with anyone more than a few weeks, and women grimace and shy away from poor Jenny when she arrives to deliver Rob's flowers. The reactions are so dismayed, Jenny is worried that Rob's orders will actually harm her business. Then, suddenly, Rob starts acting as if he wants to date Jenny, and though Jenny is extremely attracted to him and respects his innate kindness, she has no desire to be just one more in a long line of his short-term lovers.

More About the Author

Trish Jensen never meant to become an author. Never aspired to it, in fact it wasn't even in the top ten of jobs on her, "If you could do/be anything, what would it be?" list.

But after seven years in corporate America, she recognized climbing that particular ladder wasn't what she wanted, either. So while she figured out what truly felt right, she decided to go back to school for her MBA. After one semester of THAT, she recognized it would still be the same ladder, just made of better wood, a better view from her office, and yet still a desk job.

So she made a leap to another, really rickety ladder, taking English and creative writing classes just to clear her head and make her brain work in a completely new way. When she tackled the final for her creative writing class, the first chapter of a novel, a crazed writer was born.

She loves this ladder, although she realized rather quickly that it never really becomes less rickety, and along the way there are many rungs that crack or break, making climbing a wonderfully scary, uncertain but never boring proposition.

Yet sitting here in her office -- admittedly with a beautiful view of mountains and wildlife rather than high-rises -- a horrible thought occurs to her. It's a desk job.
