I don't usually read romance novels so I thought I will never read this book, much less liking it. I like the scenes between Jeremy and Lexie, especially when they quarrel. You can just feel the tension between them. Nevertheless, it is more deserving of a 3.5 rating, rather than a 4. ( )

This is a very interesting book, with a plot that makes want to read to find out the answer to the big mistery which gives rise to the whole story. Lexy is the librarian and she has access to many documents and informations that can help Jeremy to solve the mistery that took him to that city and so the love between the two starts to grow dispite of their different personalities. Also, I like the fact that all the habitants know each other and are very close, I like the feeling of union.
It's a very good book overall ! ( )

Book description
Jeremy Marsh is the ultimate New Yorker: handsome, almost always dressed in black, and part of the media elite. An expert on debunking the supernatural with a regular column in "Scientific American," he's just made his first appearance on national TV. When he receives a letter from the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, about ghostly lights that appear in a legend-shrouded cemetery, he can't resist driving down to investigate. Here, in this tightly knit community, Lexie Darnell runs the town's library, just as her mother did before the accident that left Lexie an orphan. Disappointed by past relationships, including one that lured her away from home, she is sure of one thing: her future is in Boone Creek, close to her grandmother and all the other people she loves. Jeremy expects to spend a quick week in "the sticks" before speeding back to the city. But from the moment he sets eyes on Lexie, he is intrigued and attracted to this beautiful woman who speaks with a soft drawl and confounding honesty. And Lexie, while hesitating to trust this outsider, finds herself thinking of Jeremy more than she cares to admit. Now, if they are to be together, Jeremy Marsh must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows, or do something he's never done before--take a giant leap of faith.
