"The Broken Road Café" covers Dan's journey from about to be screwed to unscrewing his heart as he leaves the law firm he's slaved for in Atlanta and takes off for nowhere in particular, and ends up in Nowhere (Blue Ridge), Georgia. There he is introduced into the ways of the small community by Nick Oliver, who is happy to ticket him for speeding in his extremely expensive Maserati, and there he also stumbles into the diner where he will find good food, good people, and in his hopes as he goes on, a good life.
The specter of something sinister begins to cloud Dan's plans, in business and in romance as he lusts for Nick and Nick returns the lust but won't be budged from his closet. A number of down home and citified folk march through this book, including a hilarious but downright essential Chastity, Dan's former secretary.
The first book comes to an abrupt, indecisive end, with Dan facing betrayal and danger, but the action heats up in the second one, "Brothers in Arms." Dan, Nick, Chastity, Nick's brother and Nick's best friend, the head football coach, are caught up in crossfire plots that raise the hairs on your head and turn what Dan had hoped for as a quiet life with an open love into a chaotic scene with more betrayal, hypocrisy, violence and genuinely hot and steamy sex than you can almost possibly stand.
But you will. Wonderful and tantalizing, you will hardly catch your breath after finishing the first book in your haste to start the second.
Dan is an attorney. Nick is the Chief of Police. An unlikely coupling? Not in this case. But a rocky start to be sure. Boy, oh boy, did the rocky start work in this story. I absolutely loved Mr. Webb's dialogue between these two characters. It was at times snarky, witty, cute, and serious. These two guys are well rounded characters. The supporting players in this small town were awesome and fun.
There is a serious side to the story and it's well developed and had me hanging on the edge of my seat. I love how the author's brain works!
Thank you for such a great story, Mr Webb. I Ioved it!
That was my only complaint - yes, there were some problems with editing - I just ignored them and continued reading
Attorney, hunk, and small town - what's not to like!!! The author does a fine job with telling the tale! I love major plot and the subplots; all made the reading so much fun! NOW . . . I want to know what happens next! Drugs, small town, hot small town sheriff ! I can hardly wait for the next in the series; I do hope that the author has a trilogy in mind! TERRIFIC READ!
I was not only sympathizing with the main character, Dan, but empathizing as well; so realistic is Tom's descriptions of Dan's feelings and circumstances. What also kept me turning pages was the suspense and intrigue. No sooner was one question answered when bam, at least one more of such import was introduced.
Questions, answers, suspense, mystery, emotions dripping off the pages; I anxiously await the next installment of this moving tale.
