Genre: Romantic Suspense
I was prepared to criticize that this romantic suspense was a bit top heavy on the romance and light on the suspense. It seemed so cut and dried as to who the culprit was that it didn't seem like much of a challenge but in one final plot twist, I was proved wrong.
Samantha is a gorgeous country vet who has all the cowboys falling at her feet. When she runs into her arch nemesis - the boy who pulled her pigtails in first grade and continued to torture her all through high school - after returning from college she is surprised to find that he has aged like a fine wine. I guess they don't teach cowgirls that when little boys tease and torment little girls, the boys usually have an ulterior motive behind wanting the girls' attention.
The romantic plot was the usual fare - boy meets girls, they fall deeply in lust, girl ticks boy off, boy retreats to lick his wounded ego, etc. Throw some humor in with hot cowboys and you have the perfect combination for a story to curl up with on a chilly evening and find several hours of entertainment.
