Review: Borrowing Trouble by Stacy Finz
Back in Los Angeles, Sloane McBride was a great police detective, but after she uncovered corruption on her own squad, the job became nearly impossible. In the bucolic hills of Nugget, she can start to imagine a life after all that, where she keeps her head down, does her work, and doesn’t bother anyone. But her delicious next-door neighbor isn’t going to make it easy to keep to herself…
Brady Benson’s wildest dreams came true in LA—but they were paired with a living nightmare. As executive chef of a searing-hot restaurant, he was lauded, adored… and then found himself caught in the sights of a lovelorn stalker. Now, laying low in Nugget, he finds his own heart ensnared by the beautiful new cop with her own reasons to start over.
Neither Sloane nor Brady came to town looking for love, but it seems to have found them. Trouble is, so have their pasts. And they’ll have to stop hiding from both if they hope to come out the other side together…
I'm finally getting around to reviewing the rest of this series. It got away from me, I guess that's what happens when you binge read series. You get a little overwhelmed. But I'm back to reviewing them now.
I really liked Borrowing Trouble. I think it had to do with the fact that I really enjoyed both Brady and Slone. Both of them have past issues. Maybe a little too similar, but that's okay this is a book a fiction so I let it go.
What I loved about Slone other then the fact that she's an upstanding cop was that at the job she's no-nonsense but at home, the cop is all female. The decor of her house speaks to that fact. Something I really love about her.
I also loved how much Brandy liked taking care of her. Not in the "I am the man" type of way, more the let me feed you and make you feel good type of way. He always had her back even when times got hard for both of them.
Even when times are at their worst these two work it out and stand for each other. It might have been a bit bumpy at times but that didn't matter to them. You'll totally enjoy this story and all the delicious-sounding food in it. I know I did.
In the end, these two came together and fought together. I'm sure wonderful things are in their futures. Have any of you read this series or any other book by Finz? For fans of small-town romance, you'd really enjoy it.
