Book Summary:

Welcome to Adams Grove…where the barbecue isn’t the only thing that sizzles.

Savannah Dey politely agreed to attend her ex-husband’s wedding, but she’d be grateful for any reason to get out of it…which is why the speeding ticket from the handsome sheriff of Adams Grove is both a surprise and a reprieve. With one quick call to her editor, the aspiring columnist finds herself with a new assignment and the perfect excuse to get closer to the man who pulled her over. Now, all she needs is a way to deal with all the bad memories the small town dredges up…

Sheriff Scott Calvin can’t forget the woman who set off his radar, but he’s determined to send Savannah on her way. He’s done making bad choices, and this beautiful city gal is sure to leave Adams Grove once she finishes her story. By the time she’s stirred up a hornet’s nest, he’s already falling for her. Will trouble bind them together, or will her secrets tear them apart?

    • Sweet! I didn’t get OUT of my last speeding ticket. It was on 295 near Chester, VA. Super cute cop. Young guy. You should have seen his face when I asked if he was married. Didn’t dawn on me until I saw that look on his face that he thought I was going all cougar on him hahahah. I was just asking so I could give him a copy of a chap book from Out of Focus for his wife since cute Sheriff Scott Calvin was in that book. Since he didn’t have a wife I told him to give it to his momma. We ended up Facebook friends. I think I’d have rather gotten out of the speeding ticket and $180 fee.

      Getting old is the pits 😉

  1. Yes I did. No, I did not talk my way out of it. I had been Christmas shopping and was singing Christmas carols and didn’t realize how fast I was going. Oops.

    • Hi Jean,
      There should be a “get out of a ticket free” card for anyone singing Christmas carols…just sayin!
      But…I just have to know…were you singing DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW because that might be a speeding song 😉
      Thanks for sharing.
      Hugs and happy reading~

  2. The only speeding ticket I’ve ever received was from a speed camera – didn’t get pulled over, just got the ticket in the mail. If you’re going to get a ticket, that’s the way to go! Who has time to actually get pulled over?! ; ) (I hope this doesn’t jinx me!)

  3. I never speed . Repeat, I never speed! However, I made a long trip with my mother down to Florida. She has a lead foot . She would not let me drive because I drive so slowly , interpret that as I drive at the speed limit. So on the trip back I finally convinced her to let me drive. She said she would only do so if I promise to speed . I told my mom when I do something wrong I always get caught. She said I wouldn’t get caught because she would be watching out for cops. I drove for less than an hour, she fell asleep, and I got a ticket.

    Needless to say, she paid my ticket , and told me never to tell anybody about what happened. LOL Surprisingly, it never showed up on my driving record.

  4. Yes I got a ticket did not talk the State Trooper out of it. Good news I had very close lawyer friend and he took care of it. No charges and got it dismissed and he went on to be a Judge.Love friends in high places! I am not bragging because I will speed that is when Madison will say “You driving in Grandma Pam gear!!” She is too funny.Love my girls.

  5. I was stopped in my small town – luckily he just gave me a warning, but I didn’t know my license had expired so he had to ask me to call someone to drive my car since he couldn’t let me get away with driving off…luckily my mother and sister in law were available, so SIL picked up Mom who then drove me home (I was less than a mile from home). It was also fortunate that I could renew my license on line, so a few clicks and I was back in business!

    • It’s always the small towns, isn’t it, Margaret? I remember people living in small towns warned me to go the speed limit because the cops weren’t overly busy with other stuff!

  6. Only had 1, good thing I had a witness in the car, some really young kid, I wasn’t speeding, (he was clocking the guy in front of me), but he tried accusing me of almost hitting a child getting out of school. The whole conversation was crazy until my friend said, Yes I saw a child, he was almost 3 blocks away, the cop cooled down and only gave me a speeding ticket. JERK, lol

  7. Shhhhh never gotten one had the cars to get one in camero, Monte Carlo, but did try to pay a officer for one he was going to give my sister when I was 19 he ask me if I wanted to go to jail for try to pat an officer. Told him we was in a hurry just want to pay it and get it over with lol no sense of humor lol

  8. Knock on wood as I’ve never had a speeding ticket. My sister loves to call me grandma as I usually stay within the speed limit.

  9. While I was in college, the speed limit dropped from 70 to 55 in Texas. My dad’s car had a really high accelerator (we said it was for high heels) and it was hard to keep the speed down. No cruise in those days. He had come to Huntsville to work on my car so I drove his to my student teaching assignment. Just before my exit, I topped the hill, spotted a black and white and checked my speed. I was going 58, I swear, I was going 58. Now in Texas except around holidays they’ll give you 10 miles above the limit on an open highway, and at that time this highway was not near anything. Much to my embarrassment and horror the officer, who was sitting with his elbow on the window and his hand on the top edge of the window, WAVED HIS FINGER at me. not the bad one, the come here sign. If I had ignored him he might have let me go, but that just isn’t me. Darned if he didn’t site me for 66. I found out later that they were writing all tickets for at least 66 mph and they were still allowed to give us the extra 10 but they didn’t have to. Just my luck to get a cop with a sense of humor, but not the kind that helped.

  10. I was pulled over once in college. My boyfriend and I were heading back to school after spending the weekend with his family. I was mad because my boyfriend made me drive and on the way back he fell asleep. I was driving through all of these little towns not knowing where I was going and I was going waay too fast. I was pulled over and told the officer I wasn’t used to driving the car because it was my boyfriend’s who just sat there laughing at me. The officer gave me a warning because our basketball team had just lost in the NCAA.

  11. Yup. My first ticket when I was 19 by a plane flying over and then flagged down by a line of state cops. This was 1972 (had cars in those days!) Was wearing very short culottes. Got lots of whistles and the ticket.
