Once you get the zing you can't go back. Jane West has everything a woman could want. A job in a small Montana town's only adult store, two busy young boys and one dead husband. She's been waiting-for a little zing. That all changes one summer morning at a garage sale with her kids. Now someone wants their garage sale find and will let nothing get in their way. Including Jane. This new excitement for Jane spells trouble for a relationship with new neighbor-and hot fireman-Ty Strickland. Can Jane and Ty handle a relationship meddling mother-in-law, crazy kids, and stay alive while trying to solve the garage sale mystery? Will their love be worth the wait?
Note: This was previously titled Gnome on the Range.
Gnome on the Range was a fabulous read! The title itself was intriguing to me and I had no idea what to expect. How does one combine garden gnomes, an adult store, a single mother, Montana, a dead husband, and a hot fireman and pull them all into a story that makes sense?! Well, Jennifer Zane does it, and she did it well! It was funny, spicy, romantic, and full of mystery and suspense. They combined to make a story that was impossible to put down. One moment it was hot and romantic as sparks flew between Jane and Ty, and then the mystery would come in, sending them on one scary adventure after another. I think my favorite character, besides Jane and Ty, was Jane’s former mother-in-law. She was hysterical, owned an adult store, and was completely, and hilariously, inappropriate all the time.
I can’t wait to read more by this author. This was a fabulous read, and I highly recommend picking it up. So good!
