I hadn't read anything by this author before, so I was not sure what to expect. I made the mistake of starting to read it at 10:30pm. I couldn't put it down. It's not that it was so exciting, there was just never a good point where I wanted to put it down.
The characters were full and complete. The very unique persons populating the town could easily have been made into caricatures, but the weren't. They were treated with care and respect.
While it is, in essence, a love story it was also extremely funny at times. There were many times when I found myself chuckling in amusement. In particular there is a scene where Baylor explains being attacked by a bird that had tears rolling down my cheeks from laughing so hard. I'm not telling more about that scene, you'll just have to read it to believe it.
There are few books I read a second time. This one will be re-read more than once. If you're looking for a steamy, hot & heavy book, this is not it. Although I have to admit Baylor has a tremendous amount of sex appeal. It is a great story anytime you want a little romance and humor. It's a feel good book that doesn't over do it.
