I Want Candy

I Want Candy - Susan Donovan I probably wouldn't have started this if I'd realized it was yet another small town sheriff/returning home town girl in trouble stories, so I'm glad I didn't. This brought something new to the table -- not the suspense element, though that was well done, but a more realistic look at some of the downsides of a small town. It's not a super heavy story, but the white heroine and partially black hero do have to face some racism, while a ring of meth labs and an abused child turned stalker provide suspense.Sheriff Turner is deliciously devoted, and Candy has an interesting story arc, though her self-discovery is rather conveniently helped along by the threat of losing everything she's newly found in her home town. A really good, hot romance, well read.
