I have to say, I was pretty impressed with this book. I generally have a love/hate relationship with romances because I feel like they all follow the same cycle. (It's fine and it works...most of the time.)

This time it definitely worked. Emily is a strong-willed but seemingly lost character. She's thirty and bounces from job to job, home to home, etc... She's never on time and is a little unprofessional, but she's quirky and smart in an nonthreatening way. I did not like Emily at the beginning, she grew on me, lost my trust, and eventually regained it toward the end of the book.

Matt is a retired baseball player, moving back to his hometown to open a large discount store that is threatening the small town's local business.

This is where things get interesting. Emily launches a campaign to save local stores while Matt opens his new store. Things are kind of prickly for a while and it's pretty entertaining. The two characters have great banter when they're fighting over their businesses and you can definitely sense the other types of tension in their relationship.

They also have a sort of "sordid" history. Emily used to date Matt's brother, but he was "like a puppy who always made mistakes". After Emily and Jon broke up she and Matt shared a steamy moment that neither one of them had forgotten it.

I loved the history of everything in this book. The small town, the friendships, the sorrow. Coming from a small town it really resonated with me. There is so much sadness in Matt's life but he is constantly trying to stay positive and he truly believes in what he's doing.

Of course, Emily believes in her campaign as well.

Welcome to Harmony Springs where the merchants seek to retain that small town, friendly atmosphere. But when native son and former Rockets pitcher Matt Dawson returns home, he has plans to manage a large scale franchised discount store...one that may threaten several of the town merchants livelihood. Emily Barton is looking to keep Harmony Springs from changing, but she also has another reason to resent Matt's return. He is a reminder of a failed relationship with his brother, Jon, as well as a memorable interlude with Matt himself when Jon betrayed her. But old feelings keep getting in the way of her resolve to defeat his store plans. Can she work out her feelings and still save the town. This is the first in a planned series around the residents of Harmony Springs. It represents a good start to the series with the characters of Emily and Matt and their all too human foibles. I look forward to reading more of this series. Note there are some explicit sexual scenes in the story. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Once again, Ms Klasky outdoes herself with this story. The story takes place in Harmony Springs , a small town where there are few secrets and everyone knows you. It’s main characters are Matt, a retired baseball player that has returned to his hometown to open a discount store, and Emily, who at one time was his brother’s Jon girlfriend, and is against the discount store. She sees it as a threat to the local business.
But really, this book is about much more than that. It’s about how our past ,especially in our teenage years mold us, about family dynamics,, love lost and found and our insecurities. But above all, that with love and trust in ourselves and others, we can overcome everything.
Pick up this book, and enjoy the story. I certainly did.

Harmony Springs - sounds like a nice little southern town where one would move to step out of big city life, or a wonderful place to visit for a respite from the hustle and bustle. While it is both of those things, there are actually people living in the town thus it also comes with its own share of drama. One of my favorite traits of Mindy Klasky's writing is her ability to develop unpredictable, complex characters such as the ones in Just One of Those Things. It seems that just when I think I have them figured out, they go and do something I never imagined. This attribute of her stories and her writing style draws me in and keeps me reading until the end. Well, it actually leaves me wanting more at the end!

I highly recommend both this book and Fly Me to the Moon, a second novel in the Harmony Springs series. And...check out her Jane Madison series for some paranormal fun!

Spoiler Free Review:
This is the first full length novel in her Harmony Springs Series. However, it is related to her Perfect Pitch series and was introduced in the novella "Fly Me To The Moon". Rather than summarize the book let me give you a little bit of insight into Mindy as an author.

Mindy writes in several genres and her book are light, entertaining and uplifting. She creates a cast of complex characters and weaves in contemporary plots that lend a touch of realism. This series of contemporary romances will be tied together by the community of Harmony Springs. You find yourself connecting to the characters and thinking I want to visit that town. There is just enough description of the community for you to feel comfortable with it and each of the characters is well developed and likeable. You can tell that Ms. Klasky is a keen observer of the human condition and the characters she creates reflect that.

There is a little sex in the plot and the occasional expletive but it fits the plot and is not the main focus of the book, but advance the plot and build the characters. Quite frankly these could be produced for prime time TV with no editing and be the cleanest show at any of the time periods. I make the comment as I know some people are very sensitive to such. While I think you would be missing out on an enjoyable series if that is a deal breaker for you then you should probably pass on the series.

If however you are looking for a smartly written contemporary romance that is entertaining and uplifting and delivers a well thought out plot. Then this series should be ideal for you. Remember, "Fly Me To The Moon" is the novella that introduced Harmony Springs. Each of these stand alone though and can be read in any order.
