She’s a woman of her word. Cissie Rogers likes to do everything by the book. Literally. The town librarian in Kettle Knob, North Carolina, she’s determined to preserve the future of literature—and the library’s romantic legend—for her patrons. It’s not easy when the mayor himself, Boone Braddock, wants to close the library down. There’s only one way for Cissie to put a stop to him: By running for mayor herself!
Is he a player—or does he mean business? Boone is Kettle Knob’s favorite son, a champion athlete and stellar football coach with deep local roots. Cissie will need more than a savvy slogan and a pair of three-inch high heels to stand a chance at the polls. But what about the campaign that’s underway in her own heart? What began as professional rivalry has transformed into a simmering attraction that neither contender can ignore. Could it be that the keeper of the town’s card catalog and the legendary football hero are ready to team up…and write their own storybook romance?
A fun small town romance. I’ll admit I picked this book by mistake. I misread the authors name and thought I was getting something totally different from an author with a similar name. It was a happy mistake. This is the first I’ve read from this author but not the last.
Trouble When You Walked In takes us to small town rural North Carolina. Cissie Rogers is the town librarian and a dreamer. She is 32 and believes in the library’s romantic legend that her true love from out of town will walk into the library and steal her heart. The only eligible male over 20 that walks into her library is the own mayor the man she has crushed on since the 4th grade and he is only there to inform her that they are shutting down the library and moving it to a strip mall so they can share with the next town over as a cost savings measure. The legend goes with the library and she hasn’t found her true love yet. So the fight is on. She will do what it takes to save the library and the legend including running for mayor. These are incredibly likable and real characters who will charm you to your toes.
