Ip Russ because of the earlier mentioned failed relationship and Lani because she d recently had her heart stomped on by a guy who was just sing her Second Russ s past makes it very hard for him to trust Lani fully They have moments when they are fully in sync and everything is looking wonderful
AND THEN SOMETHING HAPPENS TO MESS IT ALL UPthen something happens to mess it all p loved seeing things progress to where Russ finally opened p to Lani about what had happened to him but when her family loyalty keeps her from returning that trust things go bad in a hurry It was hard to see the pain that both of them were in thanks to their rift and I kept hoping they would find a way through itOne of the strongest themes in the book is the love and loyalty found among family and friends There were some fun scenes involving Sunday dinners with both families and the dynamics found among the various members I thought it was great to see how well they fit in with each other s family Lani s niece s comments were especially fun There was also tremendous support shown for Russ by his family I particularly enjoyed seeing the way that Lani s brothers Anderson and Travis teased her but were there for backup when they felt she needed their support I especially loved the were there for backup when they felt she needed their support I especially loved the that Anderson went to Russ when he discovered what had caused the trouble in the first place One of the best scenes in the book is at the end when it seems everyone has something to say about Russ I loved how that turned outThe mystery of the spiked punch is ongoing Knowing that such a thing has happened has put most OF THE TOWN ON EDGE WONDERING IF IT COULD the town on edge wondering if it could again Russ and the sheriff are frustrated by their inability to find out who did it I m looking forward to seeing how it progresses through the rest of the series Spiked punchThis is a fun and interesting story with many twists and turns The characters were complex and likeable Fun story Lani has a secret that isn t hers to tell so when she managed to get herself arrested by by Russ she wasn t about to tell her reasoning why She d rather get herself in trouble then betray her brothers trust Meanwhile Officer Russ is trying to investigate a case that was spread town wide when a event managed to get people drunk enough to things they wouldn t Not taking the chance that something like this can happen again this time no one was hurt but who knows what would happen next time Problem is the one person who everyone trust enough and can help him is the lovely Lani and that one night of passion they had can make things a bit complicatedOverall I thought this was a enjoyable short story I wish there was but if your pressed for time and need a great little romance to keep things entertaining for a bit then this book would be for you I loved how loyal Lani was risking her own happiness for another just not to betray a families trust I m very curious bout her brother though and want to know about him and his story of what is going on Maybe even a bit of knowing in depth novella on Russ s story of what happened before he ended p where he is now 3 12 stars. Russ crack the case could risk breaching family confidentiality and Lani never breaks a promise So why does Russ keep showing Beyond the Qumran Community up at the Ace We at The Gazette would never kiss and tell but reports of Lani and Russ's mutual distrust are greatly exaggerate.
