character for a forthcoming book He was introduced in a very heavy handed way Not pertinent tofor a forthcoming book He was introduced in a very heavy handed way Not pertinent to story at all But then a whole lot of this book wasn t pertinent I m not Beer Law: What Brewers Need to Know real fond of series set in uaint little towns There seem to be many many on the market lately and this is sort of a ho hum addition to the crowd Finally there were ghosts in the book You weren t uite sure if they wereeal or part of the hero s PTSD Since the dog could see them and the air got cold when they were there I think they were meant to be GIS and Fr�uleins: The German-American Encounter in 1950s West Germany real I kind of liked them best of all the book But she kind of didn t do anything with them and they were wastedWell I might give the next in this series a try but if it isn t substantially better than this one I won t go further than that If you enjoyed Robyn Carr s Virgin River or Thunder Point series or Susan Mallary s Fools Gold books this series about Shelter Bay should beight up your alley Ex military heroes and strong independent women who own cute animals Kara Conway is the new sheriff in She.
