    This contemporary romance centers on a woman who has moved from a big city to a small town to get away from something The story is teasing holding out the revelation until the last possible point in the story, but it is not hard to figure out Some things about it areobvious than others.Dana is hard to like since she is withdrawn and jumpy, pushing Nick away at every chance Nick would be the perfect guy but he is a bit chauvinistic and way too invasive The story should have been a non s This contemporary romance centers on a woman who has moved from a big city to a small town to get away from something The story is teasing holding out the revelation until the last possible point in the story, but it is not hard to figure out Some things about it areobvious than others.Dana is hard to like since she is withdrawn and jumpy, pushing Nick away at every chance Nick would be the perfect guy but he is a bit chauvinistic and way too invasive The story should have been a non starter since Nick should have taken many hints and done the right thing and stayed away I can t imagine what his attraction is other than Nick having a White Knight complex He realizes that he is dealing with something serious in Dana, but runs over her Not that, from a broader perspective, she doesn t need to have her shell removed, but it is not Nick s right to make that choice The author paints his motives as being mostly pure, but I think that he is lying to himself.The tone of the story is mostly a downer Not only does it deal with a very serious and disturbing subject, but any time there might be some optimism, it doesn t take long for Dana to crush it Nick s son Tony could be a bridge that develops into something interesting, but mostly Tony is a secondary character.I know I have said it, but this book deals with a very serious and disturbing topic that has wider application in society I don t think it does that very well I have read many other stories with variations on that theme, so I am comparing to this book to those stories as to how well the author draws in the reader to the problem Some of what leaves this book short is the teasing nature of the mystery The author spends so much effort giving hints, yet holding back, that the reader doesn t get a chance to truly empathize with Dana Something is obviously bad, but without understanding it better, the result isfrustration than empathy Nick mirrors what the reader is feeling.Mature themes besides the disturbing issue there are mildly explicit sexual references and a mildly explicit sexual scene that isn t real long That brings us to the disturbing issue I thought that the way it was handled is at best clumsy and at worst exploitative The issue is view spoiler serious physical and emotional abuse of Dana by her husband Double Spoiler This leads to her killing her husband mostly in self defense Additionally, Dana is persecuted by the family and later by gossip in the town The resolution was done too quickly, too easily, and too vaguely, so we don t really get a good discussion which might lead to societal solutions Also, in these stories, I am never sure I believe that a woman is going to turn to sex with a new partner in the way presented in the story I admit, the story went to great lengths to develop Nick as sensitive and trustworthy Forgive me because I m male I readily admit I m no expert in these things, but I know from experience that my wife wants anything but sex when she is stressed or upset And my wife s temperament is much like Dana s Triple Spoiler Further, Nick s actions, going into Dana s bedroom and eventually kissing her while she is asleep is technically sexual assault It is unacceptable Dana s reaction is incredibly mild given the circumstances I don t buy it Expanding on the idea that the author does little to explore solutions, it would be perfectly fine if the only objective in writing this book would be to provide a nice romance, but a nice romance needs to be lighter and fluffier But neither is this a good effort in the realm of social justice.The author runs through Dana s story of seeking help too quickly There are some good facts about challenges those women face, but any possible solutions are dismissed by Dana, thus marginalizing those solutions Dana makes no effort to get legal protection from the family, so the reader has no idea whether this is viable or what might be possible for a woman in Dana s situation Dana just runs until the very end Isn t her reaction exactly the wrong thing to do in her situation We really get no discussion of this, so the author misses an opportunity hide spoiler

    Nice second chance romance between a hero who had a great first marriage until his wife died, and a heroine who keeps her past mysterious, but you know it was bad It moves gently and carefully, and is just a sweet little story I liked it.

  3. says:

    Typical tripe but funNot enough humour by far Characters were stick figures Handsome man meets abused widow I highly recommend this book for abused women as it tested this subject frankly about being preachy.

    As with all of Woods books, I want to readabout these characters One character has a twist I didn t see coming I imagined all kinds of things but the answer made perfect sense.

    Nice bookI was great the way the problem was finally solved Why do I have to rate every book I should be able to decide it

    A librarian found love again in River Glen Her first husband treated her badly.

    On Edge of Forever This was my least favorite of the two books but I still enjoyed reading about the characters Now I m going to spoil the story just a bit because how can I review this story without doing a bit of spoiling Dana is incredibly secretive about her past which requires Nick to tease out bits and pieces since Dana won t share anything.Dana is the town librarian who clearly came to town to hide from some horrible event in her past She tries very hard to assert her independence and On Edge of Forever This was my least favorite of the two books but I still enjoyed reading about the characters Now I m going to spoil the story just a bit because how can I review this story without doing a bit of spoiling Dana is incredibly secretive about her past which requires Nick to tease out bits and pieces since Dana won t share anything.Dana is the town librarian who clearly came to town to hide from some horrible event in her past She tries very hard to assert her independence and avoid relationships but of course the town sees her as perfect for the town bachelor, Nick Verone Nick likes the mystery surrounding the librarian and wedges himself into her life rather forcefully He invites himself over, enters her home, and takes on fixing things without being asked I know it s the small town charm thing but it did seem a little too forceful for my taste.As they begin falling in love, her secrets come out to the town and there is a movement to remove her as librarian At the same time Nick s mother in law decides to fight for custody of Nick s son, Tony, due to Dana s presence For this couple it is just one hurdle after another while they fight to be in love.I enjoyed the book but I got hung up on Dana s secrecy as well as Nick s forcefulness If Dana had merely explained even a tidbit of her past then maybe Nick would have understood where she was coming from If Nick had actually listened to Dana s wishes for independence then she wouldn t have felt boxed in I get the book needs conflict but at times it seemed a little forced.I gave this book 3 5 stars Read as part of an anthology

    WellThis one really struck a bad note with me Most parts seemed rushed and I really never liked Nick He came off as pushy, unable to take no for an answer It really bugged the hell out of me, especially in light of Dana s past Tony was cute, but it wasn t enough to make me rate the book higher.

    Three stars not because it is a bad book but just an average one that I did enjoy There were good characters, a mystery, a romance, and a good awareness of spousal abuse and its effect on those involved There was also some of the joys of living in a small town highlighted Sheryl Woods always hooks me early and reels me in and this book was not exception.

    The book was ok but gets off to a slow ans d somewhat boring start in the first half The action does pick up in the second half It does not show the depth and maturity of Ms Woods later writings It isof a typical Harlequin book.
