Book - Out of Eden

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Another birthday in the small town of Eden, Indiana. Kylie McGraw was so tired of the same ol’, same ol’ and decided, during her ‘traditional’ birthday celebration, that this was the time for some changes in her life and in her world. Starting with getting drunk on Cosmo’s (she normally drank only beer) and if she is not careful, ending with her life in danger. During that Cosmo haze and the following morning hangover, Kylie not only made decisions, she placed online orders. Wanting to update and upgrade the family owned shoe store she marched right into the hardware store for paint and walked out with a helper (Travis Martin). Getting away from the big crime in New York City, Jack Reynolds came home to Eden as the new Chief of Police only to find his best friends little sister the biggest problem he would have to handle. She had always been the little sister that everyone knew had a crush on him, now he started seeing her as a women and he was in trouble, with the town, himself and his friend if he couldn’t find a way to handle her and her new found need for change.

This is a new author to me, I really enjoyed this one. It was a combination of a lot of things from a suspense to action with a bit of comedy and a lot of romance. The typical hero comes to save the day. The heroine is strong and usually does the rescuing but for this time in her life, she needs to be saved. While I don’t know much about the reality of mafia type families, the rest of the story was very realistic and relatable. I enjoyed several parts of the relationships between siblings, their friends and the small town environment. Fun even for a non-shoe lover like myself. ( )
