ER nurse Lila Daley might have made a hasty decision leaving Dallas to move to Papillion, LA, where her newlywed sister resides. She believed a change of scenery and a switch to nursing at a private practice would help her overcome the devastating trauma of her last day in the ER. But when Lila arrives in the small town, nothing is what she expected, from the alligator in the middle of the road to getting a ticket from an undeniably attractive sheriff to the eccentric community itself. Sheriff Armie LaVigne knows Papillon like the back of his hand and is grateful to have the support of the community after the accident that killed his ex-wife and left his teenage daughter in a wheelchair. He remembers meeting Lila at her sister’s wedding and hasn’t forgotten her, but Lila isn’t sure a relationship would be the best idea, especially since Armie’s admirers aren’t happy with the couple’s undeniable chemistry.
VERDICT Blake (Evidence of Desire) has created a couple to root for, along with memorable supporting characters and story lines with depth. Readers will be eager to visit Papillion again.
