Book Review: It Had to be Love by Tamra Baumann


Book Description:

Tara Carter isn’t looking for romance. She’s content seeing patients at her new practice by day, then going home and cuddling with her puppy at night. Her new life in the tiny town of Anderson Butte, Colorado—known by celebrities as the place to lie low—is the perfect respite for a woman with a whopper of a secret. There’s just one problem: the town’s sexy sheriff knows she’s hiding something.
Sheriff Ryan Anderson, weary of small-town drama, has sworn off dating locals and thinks a fresh start in a bigger city is in order. However, the more he gets to know Tara, the more his heart tells him that she could be the woman of his dreams. But he wants to get to the bottom of whatever she’s trying so hard to keep under wraps. Can he uncover her secret before it drives them apart forever?

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

Tara Carter is hiding from her past in a new town when she meets the town's sheriff Ryan Anderson.  Ryan knows she is hiding something and is determined to find out what her secrets are.  However, in effort to unearth her secrets, Ryan has to learn to communicate his OWN thoughts and feelings as well.

Under the rouse of teaching Ryan "to be a better date-r", Ryan learns more about the town's new dentist and finds her very easy to talk to when he's never had that before.

A family wedding, a psycho ex-hasband, and a mystery of buried Prohibition whiskey add to the story.
