Read chapters 6-10....five chapters of painting, decorating, furniture shopping, and house renovations that remind me of Roberts' Inn at Boonboro series. Then the MC had to get bitchy over adopting the stray dog. The hero came into the story WAY too strongly; there was no subtle introduction, he just started in on the sexual innuendos. The MC went from someone I could root for to a bitchy "independent" woman. I am breaking up reading this book with reading from my booklikes-opoly pick. 75 pages at a time is more than enough.
