Rumor Has It – wonderful contemporary romance, set in small-town Idaho

This is a wonderful continuation of the Animal Magnetism series by Jill Shalvis. She writes with humor, emotion and wit about life and the amazing characters that inhabit her world.
Sunshine, Idaho is your typical small town, a place that Griffin Reid could not wait to leave as he headed out when he turned eighteen. Now he is back in town for his sister Holly’s wedding and is at a turning point in his life. He has not told anyone, but he has received a medical discharge from the army for being too close to an IED when it exploded. He has a few options to consider however is interested in mending his relationship with his father so is home for more than one reason.
Kate Evans is Holly’s best friend and is excited for the wedding and is pleasantly surprised when she sees Grif back in town, she has always had a crush on him but as the bad boy in his teen years, she has steered clear, this time she is ready to see what happens when she pushes the relationship.
I have to say that Ms. Shalvis writes amazing contemporary romances and Rumor Has It is one of my favorites of this series. The relationship between Grif and Kate is romantic as they dance around their attraction. He tries to stay away knowing that he is not sure of where he will end up, but she is ready to make this work. I love the dynamics of the secondary characters and enjoy that many from previous books are featured. Although this is the fourth in the series, this can be read very easily as a standalone. I highly recommend this feel good romance that is well written with humor and hope.
