I was looking forward to this one. First of all, I will read any book that features a librarian. And second, the series title is Deep in the Heat of Texas--every time I see that I hear Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory and that makes me happy.
Elizabeth was definitely an interesting heroine. She was intelligent and self-sufficient. I liked that she was the one with the sure-hand. She had her head on straight and never fumbled. I liked Brant too. He may not go on my favorite heroes ever list but I did like him. He was a bit too "businessman" for my tastes. But I liked that, in spite of his all around togetherness, Brant came across as the iffy one in places. It's usually the heroine cast as the unsure one.
This book was a mixture of so many great things. The chemistry between Elizabeth and Brant was great. They never got boring or predictable. They played off of each other nicely. I also loved the humor. I often found myself laughing out loud while reading this book. The hens, three awesome old ladies and residents of Hattie's, were hilarious--they are people I would love to meet. I would like to be just like them when I grow up. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that our main couple added to that humor. This was such a fun and lively book. I will definitely be picking up the other books in this series when I need a good laugh or a pick-me-up.
