Sweet book. PG-13 rating. There are a lot of threads in this book. Sibling rivalry, family responsibility, unrequited love, mob families, witness protection program, (early) midlife crisis, career burnout and more more more!

I felt there was too much going on. But Ms. Ciotta kept all the threads going, cleared up the mysteries and made it fairly realistic. After reading the book I read some reviews and found that this is the first of two books in the series. I can see a number of possible sequels, but I don't know tat I am compelled to go out of my way to find the second book. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
My biggest beef with Ciotta is that she wrote some fun, light-hearted books a few years back (Charmed, Seduced) in which the main female character was strong, fun, sexy, independent, and most importantly, not whiny. Ciotta books since then have her main female character way too wimpy and allows herself to be pushed around (all under the guise of "concern" which is really just attempts to control her) by almost everyone in the story. Argh! All that being said, this book is better than her recent ones (Everybody Loves Evie), but not by much. It was cheesy and had a rushed HEA ending. The secondary characters were far more interesting than the main ones. A light, breezy read. ( )

"Sometimes paradise isn't all it's cracked up to be. That's what I, Kylie McGraw, have discovered since sacrificing my dreams of traveling the world to run the family shoe store. But if I have my way, peaceful Eden, Indiana, is in for a major shake-up. It all began on my birthday, when I got drunk and disorderly all over Eden's hunky new police chief (and my former high school crush), Jack Reynolds. Then I may have, in my Cosmo haze, witnessed a murder in progress. Now I'm almost certain I'm being stalked by the mob, while he-of-the-distracting-abs Jack continues to think I'm nuts. However, there comes a time when a girl has to kick off her sensible shoes (size 7, cushion insoles) and go after what she wants. So if I can just survive long enough to put on my sexy new red heels, that's exactly what I intend to do" -- from publisher's web site.… (more)
