I have been on a Contemporary binge lately so it fits in with my mood.

This was a really sweet story about a newspaper journalist Pepper Malone, who crossed the line by publishing a story about her ex boyfriends family. She was embarrassed and run out of town for using her pillow talk for a feature. She ends up in nowhere ville (Bailey, Texas) to lick her wounds and rebuild herself.

Mike McCulloch is a reluctant hometown boy who runs his family’s newspaper business. Past family circumstances put him in the role of editor and father to his deceased brothers daughter. He is disheveled and lacking in social skills, but Pepper finds herself attracted to him.

Someone is trying to sabotage the newspaper and Pepper and Mike find themselves in danger.

This was a sweet story and a light read. I found Pepper’s reluctance to have a relationship with Mike made the story interesting. I have to admit though that I like Thomas’s Westerns better.
