DESCRIPTION, NOT REVIEW: Evers, Texas is Phoebe’s shot at leaving behind the fun-loving woman no one takes seriously, and she’s determined to make it work. Unfortunately, he’s determined to give up his steady, staid ways and he wants her help. Can they meet in the middle and make love work?

It might have taken Phoebe Joy a little while to realize there’s more to life than having fun, but she’s got the message now. She knows if she doesn’t make changes, she’s going to lose out on her chance at love and a family of her own. It isn’t easy to erase the mistakes of her past and remake herself, and the oh-so-sexy Shane Bishop is tempting her like no man has before. To top it all off, when she stumbles on a mysterious death in her new town, the dream she’s trying to hold onto is in more danger than she realizes.

Shane Bishop knows how everyone sees him. He’s the boring brother. The one you can count on to solve your problems, to consistently be exactly the way he’s always been. Day, after day, after dreary day. When Phoebe shows up in his office, he’d be an idiot to try to deny the way her beauty and excitement tempt him. And if there’s one thing Shane has never been, it’s stupid. But when she uncovers a murder the town never even realized had happened, her life is in danger and he’ll have to race to save the woman who’s stolen his heart. ( )

Lori Ryan has created a wonderful series in Evers, Texas. Ever's is a typical small town where everyone seems to know what others are doing & gossip runs rampant. Shane is the only lawyer in town. He's always been steady & practical & is ready to settle down. He thought he knew what type of woman he wanted but the "sweater sets" are boring him. Then she walked in the door & shook him up. Suddenly things weren't as steady & predictable as he liked.

Phoebe has been looking for a town to settle down in. She's felt like she was missing out all her life. Her family consisted of her grandmother, her father & her. She wants a town where everyone looks out for others like a family. She thinks she's found it in Evers. She's drawn into the town & its citizens right from the beginning. Why does she have to be attracted to her boss? It'll jeopardize everything!

This story is a perfect example of a romantic suspense! While Shane & Phoebe are fighting their attraction & trying to navigate their relationship, there has been a death in town. The plot twists & turns & just when you thought it was at its conclusion, it takes off in another direction. I was hooked from the beginning & couldn't put it down. ( )
