Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Craig (Divorced, Desperate and Deceived) turns her latest smalltown romance into a delightful comedy of errors. Hired by the mayor of Precious, Tex., to do a PR shoot that will draw visitors to the tiny town, photojournalist Shala Winters dodges burglars, would-be assassins, and vandals while tangling with sexy police chief Sky Gomez, who doesn't want her taking pictures of Native American rituals and turning Precious into a tourist trap. Sky doesn't believe in soul mates, though his foster father has prophetic dreams of Sky and Shala together. Shala, orphaned and divorced, is wary of men and furiously defensive of her independence. Many of Precious's standoffish, quirky, nosy residents are of Native American descent, but the culture feels like an afterthought; Craig stays focused on playfulness and sexual tension, and hits all the high notes en route to happily ever after.

From Booklist

When Mayor Johnson and the tribal council of the small town of Precious, Texas, calls on photojournalist Shala Winters to produce some positive publicity to increase their tourism, she packs up her $8,000 camera and heads straight there. Unfortunately, when she attends a Native American ceremony, her camera is confiscated by Sky Gomez, the most handsome of the dancers. Shala has to retrieve her camera, her livelihood depends on it, but Sky, who's also the sheriff, isn't the only one keeping it from her. It seems that Shala has taken a photograph of something she shouldn't have, and someone's willing to kill her to keep the picture from seeing the light of day. To top everything off, not everyone in Precious is onboard with the plan to increase tourism, and they're making sure Shala knows where they stand. Entertaining Craig shows that both love and danger can pop up when you least expect them, and her breezy style and spunky heroine won't fail to delight readers. --Shelley Mosley

Shut Up and Kiss Me centers on the small town of Precious Texas - but for many of the characters in this largely Native American/Hispanic town - it was anything but "precious". This book started out hilarious and within the first 6 pages had me grinning from ear to ear like a mad fool at some of the antics the characters had to endure especially poor Jose, who was one of many memorable secondary characters. He seemed to be on the receiving end of the funny (or not) torture dished out by the author upon her poor unsuspecting characters. Rushing home to Precious after his father Redfoot sustains a nasty head injury, poor Jose had a car crash, fire ants making a picnic out of his family jewels and then being sprayed by a skunk and that wasn't even half of what he had to endure on his first night back in his not so precious home town (his character must have seriously pissed Craig off while she was writing this book LOL!). Hopefully Jose merits his own story in a future installment about the citizens of Precious because I can't wait to see what additional torture Craig cooks up for him.

Shala Winters just wanted to do the job she was hired to do by the Mayor of Precious; take pictures that showcase the town and prepare a marketing campaign to turn this little town into a Texas tourist attraction. She hasn't been in town a day when her very expensive Nikon camera gets confiscated at the local Indian Pow-Wow by a headdress-wearing, loincloth sporting, hard-bodied, oiled-up bare-chested Adonis who makes her girl parts tingle. So Shala may have broken the strict "NO Picture" policy by not handing over her camera (heeelllo? it's worth $8,000) before attending the ceremony, but she didn't take the flash picture she's been accused of taking.

Shala Winters was hired by the mayor of the small town of Precious, Texas to create and launch a PR campaign to draw some tourism to his struggling town, but there's no way she would've guessed that there was so little precious about Precious. Within the first twenty-four hours of being within the town's limits, Shala has had her lunch stolen and her leg amorously assaulted by a stray dog, her expensive camera stolen right out of her hands, been followed by a strange vehicle, had a whole town stonewall her, been accused of breaking the rules of a Native American ceremony, forced to dance disco in a disreputable establishment with a lecherous bar owner, pushed into a contentious disagreement with the sheriff of the town...who was the one who stole her camera and refused to give it back to her, almost assaulted by a man carrying a gun, cut her hand badly enough to need stitches, and was forced to go to a hospital, a place that had given her panic attacks since having watched her parents die in one when she was eight years old.

Shala is not having a good day.

Neither is the sheriff of the town, Sky Gomez. Everyone in town knows that his foster father had a spirit dream that pegged Shala as his soul mate even before she reached town, so Sky did what any dedicated bachelor who doesn't believe in love (let alone soul mates) would do (no matter how sexy Shala is). He avoided her like the plague. Sure, he followed her around town...no, not stalking...to keep an eye on her...that's really not stalking...because half the town was quite vocal about not wanting her there...so that definitely means it's not stalking! Then she gets eyeball to groin with him during a powwow and seems pretty enthusiastic about it with that camera of hers. That's against all sorts of his rules.

It's photojournalist Shala Winters's job to make the small town of Precious, Texas look appealing to tourists. Too bad her camera has been confiscated by the stubborn, infuriating, all-too-tempting chief of police, Sky Gomez. The sexy lawman refuses to hand over the Nikon, especially when it becomes clear someone's after whatever pictures Shala has stored on her camera.

A series of break-ins turn into attacks that lead to murder and Sky isn't about to let Shala out of his sight until the killer is caught. Danger's almost as powerful an aphrodisiac as love, but is there a future for a small-town cop and a motor-mouthed photojournalist? Maybe there is.... if Sky can get Shala to shut up and kiss him.

Nobody can mix romance, action, and humor quite like Christie Craig. Shut Up and Kiss Me is the latest gem from this wonderfully talented author and, like all of Ms. Craig's books, it shines. Both Shala and Sky are hard-working, generous souls with a lot of love to give. It was so much fun to watch them butt heads in the beginning, but it was even more of a pleasure to see them fall in love.

A cast of endearing secondary characters add another layer of charm to Shut Up and Kiss Me. I confess, I adored Sky's family and friends every bit as much as I did him and I sincerely hope Ms. Craig has a book planned for Sky's sexy, Scrabble-loving friend Lucas. All in all, I adored Shut Up and Kiss Me. There's a comfort in curling up with a book that you know will make you laugh, smile, and sigh and I plan on enjoying that bit of comfort with Shut Up and Kiss Me many times over.
