Here’s another first time read for me – Nancy Naigle and her Adams Grove romances. “Barbecue and Bad News” is sure filled with flavor and a whole lot of quality news!

On her way to her ex-husband’s marriage, Savannah Dey sets off the radar in the handsome sheriff’s car. Instead of giving her a ticket, Sheriff Scott Calvin lets her off with a warning as his heart skips a beat. Savannah on the other hand is intrigued enough to stay back in Adams Grove to test her flare of attraction to the lovable Sheriff.


As the Sheriff and the aspiring writer play hide and seek, they end up working together. The sparks are ignited, passion is fanned and lust lands them in bed. The handsome and honest sheriff is smitten with the sassy and beautiful writer blooming into love. But there are some secrets that could break their romance and trust is put to test. Savannah and Scott are just downright lovable, simple and good, with open hearts and helpful nature, and you can’t help falling in love with them.

“Barbecue And Bad News” is a very cute romantic story. Nancy Naigle does a wonderful job of penning a lovely romance laced with mystery, filled with small town charm, and a charismatic couple finding love towards a future of forever.
