ABOUT THE BOOK:
If there’s a naughty list, Izzy Sassafras is on it—but she’s ready to make a new start this Christmas. Especially after leaving her lying, cheating, no-good husband and fleeing to her old hometown of Matrimony, Georgia. Izzy’s made herself a promise: no more men. All she wants to do is get her wedding business up and running—and mend fences with her estranged sisters. But Izzy knows she’s in trouble when her very first client, a smooth-talking Texan, makes her light up like a Christmas tree.
Desperate for business, private investigator Levi Fox reluctantly takes a case involving a runaway wife in a town called Matrimony. When he meets sweet, sexy Izzy, he decides she can’t possibly be as innocent as she seems. At first, posing as her client is the perfect cover; but he soon imagines himself as a groom—with Izzy as his Christmas bride! Will this case end with a trip to the chapel…or the jailhouse?
That was a fun read
It kept at a steady pace, and highly amusing.
Izzy Sassafrass is the youngest of three sisters, their family best remembered for their mother’s killing of their father.
Years later, the sisters are reunited under their aunt’s roof, she is ill and needs their assistance. While none of the girls are speaking, and tension is so thick you can cut it with a knife, they come when called.
We hear the story the story from Izzy’s perspective. At first she came across as spoilt and high maintenance, but as the story moved along, I chanced my mind and grew to love the character.
She left a cheating husband.
Izzy is convinced he would never find her in Georgia, oh …. and she took a duffel bag of money?
Levi is our hero, he’s a struggling P.I, we find out that not only did he nearly get his partner killed, he also got involved with a suspect!!
I got the impression that Levi is a little lazy.
So When he is hired by Ray, (Izzy’s cheating husband,) to find his wife, Levi heads to Matrimony. He has an idea that Izzy is, involved in Ray’s scams.
Levi, falls for Izzy? But has a hard time trusting her.
The attraction that is between them, could lead to something wonderful? But could also jeopardize everything he hopes for. But when Izzy’s husband returns to take back what is his, everything changes.
The story is hard to put down, with characters that are easy to enjoy and plenty of moments to laugh and smile… and their “knock-down-drag-out fight with ice cream and assorted sundae components in the town’s ice cream parlor” was hilarious.
