Title: Mike’s Way Back, Finding Perfect #1
Author: Amy Gregory
Publisher: Barclay Publicity
Print Length: 154 pages
Release Date: November 13th, 2013
Mike’s returned to live and work in his home town after a shoot out nearly killed him, she’s escaping her cop family and neither think getting together is a good idea – but their hearts disagree!
Detective Michael Sterling worked in Chicago until a shoot out left him having lifesaving emergency surgery. He’s pretending that he’s returning to work in his hometown of Renland, Kansas, to stop his Mum worrying but his dreams know otherwise….
Taryn Watts is in Renland as an interior designer, working on a client’s new cookery school and stops into a local cafe for a meal . . . that’s where she and Mike first meet. The attraction is mutual but past experiences make both wary. She’s very aware of the potential for this becoming a long distance relationship as she’s not going to be in town for long, is it worth the potential heartbreak? Can their love find a way? Is any of it worth the risk?
Despite this being a novella, it has well developed, complex characters throughout – including many of the secondary ones. The writing style makes this an easy story to escape into, with easy to empathise with range of characters, an engaging, fast paced plot and, whilst this story is complete in its own right, the potential for future stories in the series is high because of the brilliant secondary characters and setting in this one.
I hadn’t read anything by this author in the past but I’ll certainly be looking out for more by her in future! This is a well crafted story, with brilliant banter between the characters making it a highly entertaining read and one I have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone who enjoys escaping into a delightful small town romance.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
