Brown Eyed Girl by Lori Leger
Scott “Red” McAlister has a thing for Doctor Tiffany LeBlanc. Tiffany, however, is engaged to Tanner Collins. Tanner is not a faithful man and both Red and Tiffany know this. Tiffany's childhood was one of neglect by both her parents, they were unfaithful to each other and her mother told Tiffany that is the way it's supposed to be. Finally after spending Thanksgiving with Red's family, Tiffany sees how his parents are and realizes that she can not marry Tanner after she learns of his last infidelity. Red is there for her and helps her move out of the condo that she and Tanner shared. Red is the kind of man that Tiffany wants in her life and they realize they are falling in love. After becoming engaged things start happening in Red's life. He is accused of starting a fire in his club in which a pregnant woman is killed. Red does not want the bad things in his life to reflect on Tiffany and breaks their engagement. When things calm down they reconnect and then Red decides that she needs her father in her life. He goes to see him behind Tiffany's back and she is not happy about it. This is the book with everything. There is romance, betrayal, murder, mystery and family saga thrown in for good measure. Packed from beginning to end, this is a book that you can't put down. It is a real page turner and an excellent read. The author weaves a story that is very believable with characters that you just fall in love with. Although this book is part of a series, I had no problem reading it out of order. It did, however, make me want to read the rest of the series. I will definitely read more of Ms. Leger's work. I would definitely recommend this book from this wonderful author.
