book review: shut up and kiss me

Shut Up and Kiss Me

Christie Craig

from the back:

welcome to precious, texas where fistfights serve as dinner theatre and fire ants rain from the sky. the locals are usually very friendly, if a bit eccentric. no pictures please, or you may find yourself a guest of the county morgue.

photojounalist shala winters already had her hands full bringing tourism to this backward, podunk town, but her job just got tougher. pictures can say a thousand words, and one of shala's is screaming bloody murder. now she has to entrust a macho, infuriating lawman with her life - but she'll never trust him with her heart.

trusted or not, sky gomez isn't about to let a killer get his hands of shala's nikon - or any of her more comely assets, for that matter. her mouth might move faster than a piney woods roadrunner, but all he can think about is how good it must taste - and how she'll never escape true love.

my review:

one of the authorss who blurbed the book said that christie craig reminded her of janet evanovitch, a favorite of mine. this book had wild escapades, awkward situations, and sweet romance. the two main characters were great, but the supporting cast made the book even better. sky's foster dad and brother cracked me up. this isn't serious fiction, and i loved it. i actually laughed out loud more than once. i will be looking for more books by christie craig in the future.
