Feel good romance

I have to admit I love Jill Shalvis books, but her Lucky Harbor Novels are a bit hit and miss for me. I liked this book. Not brilliant, but I still give it four stars because it was exactly what I expected from this sort of book. A nice romance with a bit of spice, a few bumps along the way and then neatly tied up at the end. The plot line is nothing too demanding but sometimes that is what I feel like listening to. At first I was not sure that I would like the heroine - she had been a bit of a bitch in the past (freely admitted) and done some pretty mean things, but as the story develops you start to understand her a bit better and come to like the person she has become. I do get a bit annoyed with the constant small town gossip built into the story - would the other residents really boycott the heroine's store opening just because they didn't like her personal life? That just strikes me as petty, small minded, and small town bullying. It would have been nice if they are rallied around her and supported someone who was, after all, trying to open a new business in their community. Apart from that niggling complaint I think this is a good addition to the Lucky Harbor series.
