Oh my goodness! What an adorably sweet story! And I loved the hint of mystery sprinkled in. Hunter Coleman, the hero is a detective who is unhappy in his relationship with Erica Boyd, a wealthy girlfriend in which the money goes to her head and she’s trying her damnedest to get recognized by some of Nashville’s highly-esteemed social groups. Erica’s a little embarrassed with Hunter and sends him off to charm school to brush up on his etiquette. Hunter reluctantly agrees.
While at the school, however, he meets his teacher, Ali Spencer, and it’s love at first sight. The two of them see more and more of each other, and he continues falling out of love with Erica. Erica moves on, as well, meeting a smooth-talking guy named Taj St. John, who has some interesting dark secrets of his own.
The saying ‘money can’t buy happiness’ certainly rings true in this story from what we see in Erica and Hunter’s relationship.
The light mystery wasn’t that hard to figure out ‘whodunit’, but it still made the story that much more fun to read and enjoy. And of course, the beautiful HEA.
The love scenes were especially hot. The author has a knack for writing steamy love scenes!
If you’re looking for a sweet, fun romance with a hint of mystery, definitely check this book out! You won’t be disappointed!
