It’s where everyone remembers your name—and your mistakes. But the quaint Catskills town of Marsden has a way of inspiring the unlikeliest reunions, flipping the script on the best laid plans, and opening even the most stubborn hearts…
Jordan Leigh’s always had a reputation for being bad news. So she figured it was only a matter of time before she got into serious trouble. But serving house arrest in her hometown of Marsden is truly cruel and unusual punishment. Plus she's under police officer Will Nash's up-close-and-all-too-personal supervision…which could make things worse—or more fun.
To make amends, Jordan throws herself into making nice with her neighbors, taking in stray animals, and helping teenage girls get back on track. But what she really wants is to get on the right track with Will. To do that, she’ll have to show him she's grown up. And if that means making him break his own rules and face down his own fears, she's up for the challenge …
This is the third book in the Marsden series and follows Cecila Marshall's cousin Jordan Leigh who is in Marsden helping to get her grandmother's house ready to sell and finish out her house arrest. There she bumps into Officer Will Nash. With them together the chemistry heats up even though they are both in denial about it. We learn alot about Jordan and how she was raised and her views on things as we also learn alot about Officer Will and things he's dealt with coming from a family of boys.
I love this series I think it's great having small town drama and relationships Jayne Denker's writing reminds me of Kristan Higgins, Robyn Carr, and Jill Shalvis. Her characters feel like they could be you friends and her books allow you to escape from current things going on to read about relationships and the drama it entails. I always find myself looking for Ms. Denker's next book as they never disappoint. This series is definitely one I will hold on for a very long time just so I can go back to Marsden periodically! Such a great story!
