2 Words that describe the book: Romance/Suspense

3 Settings or characters:
*  Shala Winters, hired to make Precious, TX (pop. 893)  a tourist destination

4 Things I liked/disliked about the book:
I liked the quirky minor characters
I enjoyed  Christie Craig’s humor, had me laughing out loud a lot.
I think Jose needs his own book, it would be hilarious (if this book is any indication)
I liked the small-town aspect – where everyone knows everyone.  That usually makes things interesting.

5 Stars or less: 4/5


Back of the book:



Shut Up and Kiss MePhotojournalist Shala Winters already had her hands full bringing tourism to this backward, podunk town, but her job just got tougher.  Pictures can say a thousand words, and one of Shala’s is screaming bloody murder.  Now she has to entrust a macho, infuriating lawman with her life – but she’ll never trust him with her heart.
Trusted or not, Sky Gomez isn’t about to let a killer get his hands on Shala’s Nikon – or any of her more comely assets, for that matter.  Her mouth might move faster than a Piney Woods roadrunner, but all he can think about is how good it must taste…and how she’ll never escape true love.
