My rating: 3/5


When pretty hairdresser Delaney Shaw returned home to Truly, Idaho, for the reading of her stepfather's will, she planned on paying her respects and getting out of town. But it seems the will has some unexpected stipulations-like the one that says if Delaney wants her inheritance she needs to stay put and have nothing to so with sexy Nick Allegrezza ... for an entire year!

Ten years ago, Nick had swept Delaney off her feet and onto his Harley, and that's when she really let her down her Hair! Back then, he was a love-'em-and-leave-'em man, and Delaney learned the hard way that she was just a fling. But Nick is as irresistible as ever. And when the ladies at Tuesday night Bingo see Nick and Delaney making after-hours whoopee through the window of a local beauty parlor, Delaney knows it's time to decide if Nick I truly, madly the man of her heart. (

My thoughts

I'm a bit torn with this book. I really liked the story of Delany Shaw coming back to a small town in Idaho for her step-father's funeral. She only wanted to stay for a few days, but in order to inherit three million dollars her step-father's will stipulates for her to stay in town for twelve months ... not as easy as it first seems.

It's a romance story with a nice kick. Great characters, nice tension between the two main characters and great dialogues - they were witty and fun to read, which made me sit up late to get through as many chapters as possible. Here and there I felt like scanning through paragraphs because of repetition, but really the only critisism I would add - and that only as a very personal opinion - is that the sex scenes between Delany and (a very hot!) Nick were a tad too detailed for me, but that might just be one of Rachel Gibson's writing style. I might find out if I will read another one - any suggestions ?

All in all - a nice read if you're happy to read about certain details ....


  1. Hi,

    Just dropped in from Theresa's Haunting Jaunt!

    The above book must be a relatively good read if kept you up and reading on. ;)


  2. I think the book has an interesting premise too. I've never read any of Rachel Gibson's books so I can't make a recommendation.

  3. Hi Iris
    Thats for dropping by and following my blog. CONGRATS on getting a book published. I live in the UK so don't listen to your radio programme, I'm afraid.I am torn between writing a chick lit novel and trying to perfect my story telling through short stories as others have done before me. :O)

  4. Thanks everyone for stopping by!

    @Madeleine ... I never really intended to publish a book, it was more accidental then I actually planned it. It's been a rollercoaster ride, but I can only recommend it!
