Wes Holiday sells his landscaping business and retreats to a quaint mountain town to heal after ending a ten year relationship with a woman he couldn’t bring himself to marry. In three weeks he is so captivated by a hair stylist that he deprives himself of food and sleep to be near her. When the local sheriff is murdered, Wes is recruited to keep the peace in the town his parents built, but he knows nothing about law enforcement and he’s struggling to understand how a woman he just met can dominate his every waking thought. Soon the idyllic town with a penchant for romance is rocked by a bizarre series of murders that defy explanation and it is up to Wes to stop a raging epidemic of violence.
What Idgie Says:
Addicted to Love - an interesting story! I can't say too much as I don't want to give anything away, but what starts out as a slightly "icky" over the top romance - Leah and Wes are so into each other that you can't help but wince a little - quickly turns into a story with glimpses of Robin Cook/Michael Crichton type moments. Things are not as they seem in this small town and it's getting weirder by the minute.
What's making the woman of the town turn into feral animals and attack the very men they had making googly eyes at only a short time before? Speaking of googly eyes - why is it that in such a small town the florist, jeweler and candy shop have lines around them filled with very contented men every day?
A good fast story with a whopper of a mystery and a nice sharp pace.
