Grace Wade left Storybook Lake hoping to escape her crazy family and the demands of her job as a defense attorney.
But not twenty-four hours after landing in a small Texas town where she hopes to find new beginnings, Grace instead finds herself in the middle of an investigation that’s turning the town inside out.
Once she agrees to be the defense attorney on the case, Grace suddenly finds herself torn between twin brothers Blane Sheperd, the bad boy prosecutor on the case, and Jamie Sheperd, the sweetheart town Sheriff...
Grace thought life in a small town would be simple, but simple has a way of eluding her. To find her way to a happy ending, she’ll have to master the art of following her heart..
Ever finish a book, and wonder what did I just read?! That's the feeling I am having right now, as I am trying to find the words what I thought about the story.
It started strong, Grace is a string, capable, sassy, smart, and successful with her career. There's an interesting murder case she's handling, and an intriguing, if a little odd pair of twins interested in her. Even though the story was told in first person, and only from Grace's point of view (something I don't normally like), I thought this might be something.
But then, the twins, grown men, a lawyer and a sheriff, turn out to be just really weird, acting like teenagers, deceiving, lying, cheating. And Grace is handling her murder case in an odd and off matter, and soon the whole story just falls off. Grace isn't anything like she was at the beginning of the story, but now a sure mess, an alcoholic, and out of control, even though there was no evidence of that at the beginning, in her rambling thoughts.
The murder case wasn't such a mystery any more, at least to me, I guessed the murder case rather early on, and the rest of the story, something just went wrong, or took a wrong turn. If it would have continued as strong as it started, I think I would have enjoyed the story, but with the turns the tale took, how the characters changed suddenly, unfortunately, for me, it was a nose dive from there.
