More of a 3.
5You know, including this in the long running KCPD series is a bit of a stretch when you spend most of the book not knowing who the H is and how he ties in I suppose I should have recognized the name dropping but it was an email so shrugThe story starts out with the H finding himself reading a wedding invite from his former girlfriend dumped him when he proposed and his college room mate Along with the invite were notes from the couple expressing concern and a desire for all three of them to be bestest friends again Are you kidding me To my everlasting disappointment, instead of sending a missive telling them where to shove their friendship, where to go, and explicit directions on how to get there, the H.
goes back home to VA to attend the wedding, thereby turning his man card into a wad of toilet paper and flushing it, along with his dignity.
Not happy with the inauspicious beginning here, and frankly disappointed he didn t punch the groom in the face after the wedding But this wasn t about that couple they quickly disappeared on their honeymoon may the mosquitoes of the Caribbean see them as an all you can eat buffet It is about the bride s little sister, who has had a crush on the H since puberty I suppose, and her scatterbrained neighbor who bit off way than she could chew and as is discovered, skipped the wedding because she was being killed for her troubles.
We then meet the local deputy who varies between being an ass, to a creep, the the deceased s boyfriend who appears strung out or something, a lawyer, a thug, an ex boyfriend who d gotten tired of scatterbrain s stringing him along and she wanted him to be happy for her that she d found what she wanted to be Mr Right It s like a disease where people don t seem to realize that expecting someone you dumped to be best buddies is a huge stretch.
Then the texts start, and after she a figures out she s being spied on through a window and b figures out what her late friend was talking about, they figure out what the deceased had that was so important, but not why They also figure out that whoever is watching knows they know, so they run.
They stay at the H s family house abandoned for at least a year , deciding to stay dressed at least until they give in to the urges and make woohoo Then of course, the bad guys show up, set fire to the place and here they gotta get dressed so they can run facepalm They do eventually make it back to KC where we find out just how this ties in to the series oh, so THAT s who he is , set up a trap, get confessions, get the bad guys caught lawyer thug too apparently, and yep deputy was crooked , confess their ILYs, the end.
Some thoughts issues H was an agent for WITSEC, and paid visits to a few of his former clients along the way This allowed him to dump his ride made them harder to track , get fed and febreezed and yet, they couldn t manage to find someone who could gas up the wheels while they stayed out of sight.
He was concerned that someone had gotten into her apartment but after figuring out she didn t have a landline, dismissed it as them trying to bug her phone and not checking deeper into things.
The aforementioned nookie on the run after the decision to stay dressed rather than change into PJs in case they had to make a run for it, that s a bit than changing After all, in a pinch, you can run in your PJs people show up in walmart all the time like that.
Going from one sister to another ick And of course, going to the wedding in the first place so people would stop worrying about him IMO, the people worrying about him gave up their right to be concerned.
This book has been in my TBR pile since it came out and I m so glad I finally got a chance to read it, because it was fabulous.
Detective Conor Wildman proposed to his girlfriend, Lisa, but she turned him down and ended up with his best friend When they invite him back to Arlington for their wedding and beg him to come, he decides to go to appease them and prove he s gotten over being dumped by Lisa At the wedding he sees Lisa s youngest sister, Laura, whom he affectionately calls Squirt but Laura is no longer a child She s grown up, with beauty and curves and a smile that makes his heart beat faster When Laura gets a call from her friend and neighbour, she fears the worst and when she goes to Chloe s apartment with Conor and they find her dead, Laura is determined to find out who killed Chloe and why Conor won t let Laura do it alone, and they soon find themselves drawn into a mystery that could get them both killed Along the way, Conor realises that maybe he was with the wrong sister after all maybe he was just waiting for Laura to grow up Laura s quicker on the draw she s loved Conor for years, but Conor doesn t believe himself worthy of a forever love Can Laura convince him to change his mind, or will time run out for both of them before they can explore the bond between them With a hero you can t help but adore, a wonderful heroine who is smart and determined to get her man and get justice for her friend, and a race against time to bring the perpetrators to justice before they pay for it with their lives, this book is everything you want in a romantic suspense story.
3 stars First things first The truth is that I don t particularly like friends to lovers plots I don t know why but I just feel kind of awkward reading it lol But because it was Julie Miller s book I read it.
I think I didn t enjoy this one as much as her other books I felt there wasn t the action I expect from her books It felt like contemporary romance than intrigue and a little chicklit in the beginning, maybe because of the marriage thing I don t like chicklit very much I also found the dialogues were sometimes a little bit cheesy for me I don t remember feeling that way with her other books so it surprised me.
Overall the story was good and also the protagonists although I liked Laura Connor s indecisiveness made me want to shake some sense into him I could understand where this was coming from but still comparing him to Laura, who is younger, he wasn t so mature It kind of rushed toward the end, we got the persecution, the confrontation with the bad guys, the resolution and then Connor saw the light and proposed I d have preferred to see that in an epilogue some time later after she moved to Kansas.
Anyway, it was good to see the Watsons again Waiting for next book.

To please Connor s Ex fianc , Lisa, his childhood best friend, Joe, as they get married he comes to their wedding Knowing he s just going to say Hi, greet everyone at the reception and get out there, it would be just enough to make them and his family happy but then walks in Squirt, Lisa s sister, Laura, and she s not the little girl he knew and remembers growing up next door, It shocks him that she has turned into a beautiful 25 year old woman She s the only one that is treating him normal, like the friends they were before he left When his ex asks for a dance, it s not her he s thinking of, but the brides beautiful sister sitting in front of him She dances with him, not once but many times believing she s just a distraction for Connor to keep away from Lisa She believes he s leaving and kisses him on the lips goodbye at the reception hall and then hurries to leave to find her friend Chloe What on earth had possessed her to kiss him like that No friendly peck on the lips, no polite buss across the cheek but a full on, hey I have the hots for you kind of kiss The kind of kiss that left a smear of lipstick and stamp of wishful possession on his mouth for all to see Chapter 3, about 15% way into the book Running back into Connor on the way to try and rescue her friend, he ends up driving her and that leads to Connor taking time off from work to protect His all grown up Squirt after all this the things that start happening that s not making any sense to Laura The first being how they found Chloe when they went to check on her, to going on a road trip where Laura meets Connors friends, his new family, there in Kansas City It may of started out with Laura being determined to find out what happened to Chloe, while Connor is determined to protect her while she does But quickly heads into to figuring out how to stay alive, so they can make this relationship work, once they are done protecting one another from killers out there Enjoyed it recommend it way can t the girl named Leslie be the heroin of the story instead of Mom of the bride,.
with my name being Leslie, Lisa was always a close second people called me, and Linda Laura I have been called as well.
they just left out the sister Lindsay and it would of been just about all the L names I ve been called.
I really like Julie s books I ve read a few of her Kansas city cop books and just recently bought one of those Intrigue Classic of her s In this book Detective Conor Wildman goes home for a wedding running into ex s sister Lara It starts out innocently but then a murder is discovered There Julie draws you into a fairly fast paced story of mystery, murder and love It starts in his hometown but ends up in Kansas City Its neat all the twists and turns that come up It also brings in his work as a marshall It gives you a chance to meet a few people he helped Which gives you a neat perspective of him You know who the bad guys are but the ending is kinda interesting I really enjoyed this story and the way Julie wrote this one.
