Description:

When it comes to love, she's a professional skeptic. Is it too late for a career change?

If there's one thing Georgiana Down is an expert in, it's bad relationships. That's what inspired her blog, Down on Love, where she gives snarky advice--usually along the lines of "dump him." In fact, George is abstaining from men all together. At least that's the plan--until she makes a trip back to her tiny hometown in the Catskills, where meddling is an art form. . .

George loves helping out with her new baby niece, but she's counting the days until she returns to Boston. Then she runs into Casey Bowen, her high school crush. The boy she once loved is now a handsome grown man--and suddenly George needs a little advice of her own. She's in the right place, because when she drunk posts on her blog, everyone in Marsden has something to say about George and Casey. It's like high school all over again--but maybe this time she'll get things right. . .

My Thoughts: 

This book had everything it had small town busy bodies when Georgiana aka George aka Goose goes home to help her sister and her sister's wife after she is injured.  There she bumps into the hot Casey who broke her heart so many years ago when he kissed her and ran.  George is also author of a blog where she is down on love after being burned a few times.

Casey sees Goose is back in town and isn't about to let her go this time.  He can't seem to get Goose of his mind so he tries to date her but finds that Goose is still needing to come to terms with why she keeps leaving, Casey even tries to apologizing for running away when she was 18.  Goose gets smothered by the town that seems to be in their business and runs to Boston to escape but finds that she isn't down on love anymore and that she is in love.

After realizing this she goes home again to get her man and tell him she loves him too.  This book was great it is up there with Kristan Higgins, and Jill Shalvis and even Robin Carr.  I just loved how she Jayne Denker was able to weave a great story that spanned 20 years in the making in this story.  I would love to read more by her.  Definitely my new go to romance author!
