He’s in Deep Haven to relax.
Detective Daniel “Boone” Buckam is more than burned out. After fourteen stellar years on the job, one bad judgment call—and, fine, a whole lot of cynicism—has forced him into a mandatory vacation. If he can get his head on straight, there’s a job as Police Chief waiting for him back in his Minneapolis suburb.
But then he meets Vivien.
Actress Vivien Calhoun isn’t really a drama queen. Sure, she gets swept up in the emotions of life—but please, she’s an actress. Or, um, was until a stalker made her flee the bright lights of Broadway. Now, she’s passionate about directing her local theater production. But when she accidentally ropes an uptight police detective on vacation into her cast, she can’t help but wonder if he might be the leading man she’s always longed for.
Of course, she’s in trouble.
Boone can’t help but like Vivien. He might even have a type—vivacious and bubbly, with a penchant for attracting danger. He can smell trouble even if she can’t, and is pretty sure her stalker has hunted her all the way to Deep Haven. He’ll have to stay by her side—even if it means being in her silly play—to keep her safe. But Vivien is more than he expected as she helps him discover a part of him he’s locked away…the part that said he could never love again.
So much for relaxing.
It’s summertime in Deep Haven, and the fun is heating up in this laugh-out-loud, charming story.
I’ve read many of Susan May Warren’s books, I haven’t read her PJ Sugar series yet. (Sadly!)
I first found Rachel D. Russell’s books when I heard about Sunrise publishing from following Susan May Warren, the fact that Russell wrote an Army hero made Still the One a new favorite romance.
I’ve heard a lot about Boone from following lovers of Warren and I was really glad I got to “meet” him in Then Came You. He’s the kinda hero that you can’t help but love when there’s danger about.
Vivian was a character I looked forward to finding out more about and man, oh, man! Her story, yikes… It was so good, even more fun, and a tad bit embarrassing at times which made it even better!
Notes: kisses, a stalker, some fights but no real violence, admiring the looks of the hero/heroine.
Recommdation: 18+ due to romance.
