After catching her husband in a compromising position, the last thing that Finley Granger wants is to enter the insanity that is the dating world. She’s dealing with enough upheaval: she’s quit her job as a journalist in Atlanta to start over as a librarian in the backwoods town of Green Valley, Tennessee. But her grandmother has other ideas. When GramBea teams up with her sister, Dot, and their best friend, Estelle, Finley finds herself surrounded by a trio of well-meaning yet incredibly bumbling matchmakers.
In spite of their efforts, there’s only one man she’s curious about, and that’s Zeke Masters, the library’s volunteer IT specialist. Sure, he’s 6’4”, impossibly built, ridiculously good-looking, and gets her nether regions tingling. However, it’s the tingle of her journalist spidey-senses that holds her attention most as she wonders why he’s on sabbatical from Seattle. Is he on lam, or on the run from a bad relationship? As Finley finds herself reluctantly drawn to the gorgeous IT guy, she can’t help but wonder: should she indulge in a little rebound fun with the mysterious Zeke – or has she finally met her match?

Out of the four books in the Green Valley Public Library series, I enjoyed this one the most. I enjoyed them all, but this one is definitely my favorite.
I don't read all of Ashley's books. I have read many of them over the years, and it amazes me how well she can switch gears in her storytelling. Her books aren't just romance. They each always have their own niche to them, which makes them entertaining and enjoyable.
I loved the characters in this book. And let's be honest, the characters are probably the most important part of the book. If you don't like them, it's hard to fully dive into the book. These characters are everything. Such a wonderful band of misfits, really.
This book will take you up and down and up and down. There will be many giggles and snorts throughout the book.
