Review, Breakfast at the Honey Creek Café (Honey Creek #1) by Jodi Thomas

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the romance novel Breakfast at the Honey Creek Café (Honey Creek #1) by Jodi Thomas through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
From Jodi Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of Mornings on Main and Indigo Lake, comes this heartwarming new novel set in Honey Creek, Texas—a small town where family bonds and legends run deep, and friendship and love are always close at hand . . .

Piper Jane Mackenzie, mayor of Honey Creek, won’t let a major scandal rip her quirky hometown apart, or jeopardize her dream of one day running for higher office. So she’s willing to welcome undercover detective Colby McBride, hired to help solve the mystery behind her wannabe fiancé’s disappearance. Colby’s cover? That he is an old boyfriend now begging Piper for a second chance—always when there are plenty of townsfolk around to witness his shenanigans.

Piper hardly knows whether to laugh or cry, especially when she finds herself drawn to the handsome rascal. He's not the only newcomer she has to deal with. There’s a new interim preacher in town, Sam Cassidy. Drifting from one assignment to another since his one love died, Sam isn’t sure he’s the right fit for Honey Creek. But as Piper knows, this is a place chock-full of surprises. And if she can keep her town—and her heart—from going completely off the rails, there may be a sweet, unexpected future in store . . .

My Thoughts on the Book
Breakfast at the Honey Creek Café was a lightweight and entertaining book. The author knows how to write character development and the characters were interesting. What annoyed me a bit was that the mystery of the missing sheriff and missing not-fiancé were a bit missing from the second half of the book, even if the missing sheriff was somehow resolved. Also, I would have loved to read more about Pecos.
