RUMOR HAS IT
Shalvis never ceases to amaze readers with her writing style; it almost seems as if a friend is telling a story. The fourth in her Animal Magnetism series will be a favorite amongst readers, because we get to hear about Kate and Griffin ... and how sweet it is! Griffin is such a strong character in spite of his flaws. Readers will wish there were more fish in the sea just like him. There are hilarious parts, and some scenes may even draw a few tears. This novel is so true to life, it feels like romance this special could happen anywhere, especially in a small town where big things are possible.
Elementary school teacher Kate Evans has called Sunshine, Idaho, her home for her entire life. She’s ready to escape, as soon as she finally gets over her awkward reunion with super sexy soldier Griffin Reid. Griffin has returned to town after being wounded during the war, but has too much pride to admit he needs a gentle touch to cure him. Kate could very well be the one to help, but he can’t get it out of his head that she was his little sister’s friend. Now, as adults, their attraction heats up, and they begin to realize that they were meant to cross paths again. (BERKLEY, Nov., 304 pp., $7.99)
