Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Skye Wright creates excitement wherever she goes, whether teaching yoga to the high-school football team or instructing senior citizens on the finer points of belly dancing. When she is hauled off to jail by the stern but hunky cop Nathan Thornton, a man with a secret, there is an uproar among the fine citizens of Rock Creek. Life then improves radically for Skye when the lottery ticket she bought as a thank-you gift turns out to be a million-dollar winner. Owen, her quiet, wealthy friend, insists that she take the ticket back, a move not appreciated by his nephew and sole heir, while Skye, in her usual offbeat fashion, decides to buy, restore, and reopen the dilapidated Tivoli theater. Linz, known for her fast-paced, snappy romantic comedies, once again sparkles in this heartwarming, funny tale. And her secondary characters, particularly the generous Owen, Skye's New Age mother, and a kitten named Gravity, as well as Skye's overprotective daughter, Toni, who bites anyone she perceives as a threat to her mother, make an already excellent story exceptional.

Wow, I can't believe all of the positive reviews this book got.

I almost threw it away after half way through.

Skye is such a mess. Her excuse for speeding is because it is a rule and she likes to break rules. Linz makes it out as if she is right. That excuse can't fly when there are so many people die each years because speeding drivers lost control of their cars.

I think Linz tries to make it funny but I could not find the humor in it. Skye is a bully in disguise who, like all bullies, is insecured and immature. The way she flies off the handle with everything Nathan says really get on my nerves. Such a childish behavior!

Nathan is too much a nice guy that he deserves someone better.

Out loud and enjoyed the crazy characters who are in this little town. The biting child to the bad girl who's good kept me reading when I should have been doing my laundry. I'm looking forward to more of this series.

The book is very readable, but the characters are not believable. Skye fights just to fight, and lacks any rationality. She lets her child run wild. She may not care about money but surely any decent parent would see a lottery ticket as a way to secure a child's future with a college fund and a trust.

Nathan does not behave as a believable man, especially when he talks to other guys. That dialogue is cringe-worthy. However other parts of dialogue can be quite funny, and the writing style is very relaxed and pleasant. So it's not a worthwhile read, but if you are stuck somewhere with just this book to entertain you, you won't be bored.

I do have to note the awful treatment of bellydance in this book. The author would have been far better served by making her a pole dancer because clearly there was no awareness of the complexity of the dance, the cultural relevance of it. A person can't just learn it from her sister (who also never had formal training). It makes a mockery of an art form that is beloved and culturally iconic in the near east and middle east.

It's difficult to continue to read a fun plot with a great male main character and entertaining supporting characters when the female lead is so irritating. She and her mother, calling themselves "free spirits", are really just selfish and thoughtless of others. Loved the town, the great lead guy and the fun residents of the town, but the female lead and her mother just sucked the joy right out of it. Couldn't finish the book.

I got the book before the dated stated on my order, but it was listed as "good" and when I got the book the spine was so creased I was afraid the pages were going to fall out when I read it. I think it should have been listed as acceptable in stead of good.

When I first started this novel , I felt that Skye was just what she had seemed in the first novel of this series, GOOD GIRLS DO. An immature, irresponsible, and selfish brat. However, after the first few chapters, you get to know Skye a little better, and see her character begin to develop. As the story progressed, while still a little annoyed by a few of her choices and thought processes, I found myself liking and understanding her a little more. In the end, I was very satisfied with this cute story, with a few serious issues like grief and self-doubt thrown in to keep it from being to fluffy. I don't feel the need to add a plot summary as that has been taken care of by other reviewers, but I will say that I would readily recommend this book to any fan of contemporary romance.
