Twisted CreekTwisted Creek by Jodi Thomas
Bad luck has been biting at Allie Daniel's heels all her life, so when she inherits a cafe in a small Texas lake community she's sure there's a catch. But Allie decides to move and brings her grandmother along, since the cafe gives Nana a chance to do what she loves best-cook. As Allie settles in, she soon discovers that she's not alone anymore-and that sometimes, the only cure for bad luck is gaining the courage to love.

Nath loved this book and recommended it to me, thanks nath. :) This was very cute. It was different. I am used to the small town thing but this seemed more like a community around a lake and that was it, in my head they were pretty isolated from everyone else. I really enjoyed this book. It had fun characters, good romance and some action as well. Her grandmother was awesome, I love her. Highly recommend this one.

Letters to a Secret Lover (Avon Romance)
Letters to a Secret Lover by Toni Blake

The last thing she needs right now is a man . . . Lindsey Brooks had it all—an awesome job doling out advice to the lovelorn, a fabulous high-rise apartment, and a to-die-for fiancé. But then she got dumped—wearing nothing but a "Kiss the Cook" apron—and desperate to escape, she retreats to a tiny Montana town to reclaim a family treasure. She never dreamed anyone would try to stop her—or that he'd be sexy as sin.

Too bad she finds such a hot one . . . Rob Colter isn't into relationships—but Lindsey sees Rob as the perfect guy to help her "get back on the horse." The sex horse, that is. Unfortunately, he comes complete with a mysterious past, which gets even more mysterious when she finds his passionate letters to another woman—whose name happens to be tattooed on his chest.

And too bad he has so many secrets . . . Now Rob's dangerous past is about to catch up with them both. And if that's not horrible enough, Lindsey is falling for him—hard. For a girl who usually has all the answers, Lindsey is up to her neck in trouble.

The cover made me think that this was a historical western, but it is not, it is a contemporary. It was pretty good. It made me cry if that is any indication. Of course, I read this right after I had the baby when I cried at everything. It was interesting storyline. The secret letter thing totally surprised me. If you have some free time and this book I would recommend it.

Another friend of mine likes her books. If it made you cry, then it is sure to make me and I just love those kinda books! My nine year old doesn't understand that and I give up trying to explain why! :).

I've never read Jodi Thomas, but it sounds lovely.

I like Toni's books, and I did like this one, but the heroine drove me nuts with how open she was about her life, especially when it invaded the privacy of the hero. It took me awhile to get past that and let it go. Otherwise I liked it, and loved Rob.

I lurved Letters to a Secret Lover. It made me cry, too. Have you read Toni Blake's other books? Something about a Red Diary and one other one that I can't remember.
