Small Town Girl is a great start to a new contemporary romance series by Cunningham. Fans of Fool's Gold by Susan Mallery will enjoy this book.

The attraction between Lauren and Caleb is immediate from the moment they meet, albeit shown through tension and feathers getting ruffled. The chemistry with these two is HOT and undeniable. They of course have to work for a happily ever after, but that's why we like this genre, right?

The characters are likable and I invested more in Caleb loving the pages where he showed up. Oddly, you never read any of the story from his point of view. We know what he is thinking only when he tells us through conversation. The whole story is told through the eyes of Lauren. I didn't realize that until half way through and realized I would have liked to get inside Caleb's head more. He is gorgeous, owns his own business, a volunteer firefighter, and has a tragic past that you just want to fill the hole in his heart yourself. Great leading man. Lauren is more complex in that she thinks she wants one thing out of life while running as fast as she can from the type of life she perceives Caleb could represent. She's also engaged to a powersuit in New York that could give her everything she ever wanted. Much to figure out for Lauren and she lets you in on all her thoughts along the way.

Lauren's best friend Kelly is a great support and I like her sarcastic, tell it like it is, side. Another character I liked, although this isn't a live character, is Lauren's grandmother's house she inherited back in that small town. I think this house is a major player in the story.

This book was cheesy. I was able to finish it but it just wasn't my cup of tea. If you like an old school romance with ridiculously worded love scenes and a heroine and hero who fall in love just because the sex was good, this is your book.

Small Town Girl is a traditional romance similar to the Harlequin romances. There were some things you wouldn't find in a Harlequin, but that was fine and I went with it. Despite some problems with the story and the writing, I love a good romance and this one didn't disappoint. It's a quick read and one that held my interest all the way through. It's true Lauren was very shallow in the beginning as some have said. I figured she'd grow through the story, and she did. I think Ms. Cunningham did an excellent job of showing that growth and of explaining Lauren's motivations. Caleb was the perfect hero, almost too perfect. I do wish we could have gotten into his head. There were times I was afraid Lauren would lose him. The book could have used better editing. A lot of sentences started with "it was" and "there was." These sentences could have been smoothed out and been less telling and more showing with good editing. The love scenes were a disappointment. They were not smooth and there wasn't much emotion in them. Also there was a lot of purple prose. That was the one downside in this book. Good editing would have corrected that.

Some of the incidents were contrived, and I wish Lauren had had a change of heart due to something internally and not because of an external incident. All in all, even with these problems, I really loved the story. I always love a good romance, and Small Town Girl has that in spades.

Lauren inherits her late grandmother's home in a small town in Vermont and takes a break from city life and her rich fiancé Charles to settle affairs. There she meets Caleb, the plumber/firefighter/stereotypical perfection of a man with whom she falls for, and vice versa. They hook up, she goes back to her fiancé because she isn't willing to give up the lifestyle. After seeing Charles in a new light, she begins to reevaluate her decisions.

I enjoyed reading this book. There weren't many grammatical errors, and the story flows smoothly. The author is good at giving just enough detail to visualize the scenes without going overboard, and the characters are well developed, though predictable. I had to laugh through some of the intimate scenes though. Lines such as "he knelt at the altar of her desire", and "burying that manifestation of his passion deep into her sweetest niche" had me laughing out loud. The ending felt a bit rushed, even one or two chapters more would have been enough to make it more satisfying. An overall fun an easy read.

I never read the original format of this story online. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of Lauren, her betrothed Charles (we know something's up when her her best friend doesn't like him!) and Caleb, the man she meets when trying to sell her grandmother's house in Vermont. I'll have to say, Lauren is unlikeable for quite a few chapters! "Shallow" could be her middle name. But at least she recognizes Caleb as the passion she had never had...

Great characters (especially Caleb!) and a satisying resolution. My only quibble is how quickly it ended --- an short epilogue would have been welcomed. The tacked-on teaser of another book was a disappointment, when I believed there was more original story left.
