I do wish, however, that the author had connected the story more to its setting, the New York Finger Lakes region. The author's bio says that she lives near the area but, with very few changes, the story could take place almost anywhere. It's understandable that the author set the story in a ficticious town but why call the cities on either end of the area "the city on the west" and "the city on the east" when anyone with a map could see that they are Rochester and Syracuse? Although much of the region is more rural than many people associate with New York, I doubt anyplace is as far from a car detailer or a Mini Cooper as the book implies.
I like the relationship between Jolene and her almost ex-husband, and how she takes care of her bi-polar sister. Jolen's job as a broker of high-end vehicles was entertaining - not your typical cozy occupation, and I learned things I didnt' know before I also liked Jolene's relationship with her employee/friend Corey. I liked this enough that I searched out the next two books in the series and paid real money for them. That says something.
