Why This Must Be Read: Seren says this has Jennifer Crusie undertones, and she's totally right with the background mystery and funny situations. This is set in the small town called Enterprise and all our favorite characters take on small town roles: cooks, salon owners, mayor, etc. The chemistry between Chapel and McCoy is sizzling, but there are also secondary relationships and friendships that are just as interesting. While it's a long story, you really don't want it to end.
