One small town. One hot sheriff. One night of passion. One massive cold shoulder. One murder. One suspect. One chance.

I’m furious when my car breaks down in the small, quiet town of Midsummer, Arkansas. Then I meet the incredibly hot town sheriff and hope that things might be looking up. Unfortunately, that encounter sours fast, leaving me ready to put this town in my rearview mirror. That won’t be easy though, since my car has left me stranded here. Now I’m trapped in a town that has nothing to offer me.

Or does it?

When an opportunity presents itself that could see me staying longer than expected, I begin to notice Midsummer’s charm. I start to wonder if maybe staying won’t be such a bad thing. Even the sheriff is beginning to thaw toward me.

That is until someone commits murder and I become the number one suspect.

Can I convince everyone I’m not the murderer? Or will the real killer walk free?

Stranded by Jessica Frances
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Connor’s lemon car breaks down in the little town of Midsummer. Cursing his luck, till he meets a hunk that will change his life. Whether that’s a good or a bad thing, he’s just not sure.

Cute story about a man who is falling in love with the hot local sheriff, his daughter, a new best friend, and an irresistible town.

Having lived in Middle America, I’d say the author got it right. Thriving gossip runs the town. Great characters, good and bad with an interesting storyline that promises more mystery and more romance.

Stranded by Jessica Frances
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What first attracted me to read this story was the mystery/suspense that was laid out in the blurb. Well, now I’m hooked and invested in this world and these guys and just all of it. I am very intrigued by the storytelling skills behind this author. I especially loved how the story unfold but yet will continue … are you intrigued yet? HA, you should be!

The town is charming! Rocky and Connor are very compatible 😉 I mean the chemistry was perfection. I loved the ease of language used also. There are a lot of humorous plot points along with some very steamy ones and suspenseful ones. I especially liked the plot. If I was to name my favorite aspect of this story it would hands down be the plot. I don’t want to mislead anyone into thinking this story ends in any kind of cliffhanger situation, because it doesn’t. It’s just not over yet lol The next story/book will continue with Rocky and Connor being the lead characters but the suspense will be brand new … so stay tuned because now I’m invested in all of this and will read this series for as long as the author writes it!
