It’s where everyone remembers your name—and your mistakes. But the quaint Catskills town of Marsden has a way of inspiring the unlikeliest reunions, flipping the script on the best laid plans, and opening even the most stubborn hearts…

Jordan Leigh’s always had a reputation for being bad news. So she figured it was only a matter of time before she got into serious trouble. But serving house arrest in her hometown of Marsden is truly cruel and unusual punishment. Plus she’s under police officer Will Nash’s up-close-and-all-too-personal supervision…which could make things worse—or more fun.

To make amends, Jordan throws herself into making nice with her neighbors, taking in stray animals, and helping teenage girls get back on track. But what she really wants is to get on the right track with Will. To do that, she’ll have to show him she’s grown up. And if that means making him break his own rules and face down his own fears, she’s up for the challenge

***Stephenee-#NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
This was my first book by author Jayne Denker, but it will not be my last! This states that it is book 3 in the series but I was able to jump right in and understand exactly what was going on without having read the previous 2 books. I love that the author makes it so effortless to start the book here, but what I love more is that she has written the book so well that I WANT to go back and start at the beginning so that I don’t miss out on any of the characters, the town or the fun that she has created.

The plot is smooth, fast paced and draws the reader in right from the very start. The characters are well developed, relatable and people with whom I could see myself hanging out with on a daily basis. There is no “rich man, poor woman, Cinderella type story” going on here….they are real everyday people that I can relate to and enjoy reading about.

Jordan has made a few mistakes in her life and is now paying the price for those mistakes. Will has grown up to be a gorgeous rule abiding officer of the law and still has a bit of a crush on Jordan. Jordan and Will decided in kindergarten that they were going to be married….do several years, a few mistakes and a bit of heartbreak mean there will be no Happily Ever After?!?! The author does a great job of keeping the reader on the edge of their seats and while there is a bit of predictable-ness to the plot, there is just as much mystery and wonder going on that the reader never becomes bored.

This is a fun read and a quick one because once you get started you won’t want to stop reading it. It will draw you in and hold you there until you have turned the very last page and even then you will still be thinking about the book and the characters long after you have finished reading. The author also adds in a bit of humor throughout the story that will literally have the reader laughing out loud – and it may happen at the most embarrassing times…Do yourself a favor and check this author out! She is going on my list of new favorites and I am moving her straight towards the top of that list! Add this one and her others to your TBR and enjoy them! This one was a lot of fun!!
