Just Between You And Me by Jenny B. Jones

About the Book
“The only thing scarier than living on the edge is stepping off it.
Maggie Montgomery lives a life of adventure. Her job as a cinematographer takes her from one exotic locale to the next. When Maggie's not working, she loves to rappel off cliffs or go skydiving. Nothing frightens her.
Nothing, that is, except Ivy, Texas, where a family emergency pulls her back home to a town full of bad memories, painful secrets, and people Maggie left far behind . . . for a reason.
Forced to stay longer than she intended, Maggie finds her family a complete mess, including the niece her sister has abandoned. Ten-year-old Riley is struggling in school and out of control at home. The only person who can really handle the pint-sized troublemaker is Conner, the local vet and Ivy's most eligible bachelor. But Conner and Maggie keep butting heads--he's suspicious of her and, well, she doesn't rely on anyone but herself.
As Maggie humorously fumbles her way from one mishap to another, she realizes she's going to need to ask for help from the one person who scares her the most.
To save one little girl--and herself--can Maggie let go of her fears and just trust God?"

My Thoughts
I love the antics of Riley and how Maggie sees herself in her niece. A great character the back failed to mention is Beth, Maggie's former-best-friend-turned-new best-friend. Beth is one of the few people initially kind to Maggie upon her return to Ivy, since her actions in high school alienated her from her peers.
The hero, Conner is one of those great guys that you wish would jump out of the book and into your life to sweep you off your feet, but at the same time you want him to stay with his girl (yes, I do get emotionally attached to fictional characters!).
So yeah, I definitely think if you haven't read this already you should find a copy. And the great thing about this being an old release is that you have a better chance at finding it on sale!
