Format: Mass Market Paperback
but this book was a definite step in the direction of her classics. I liked the seriousness that Maddie and Mick's shared history lent their relationship, not the substance of that past, but the fact that it bound them in a way they could choose to change for the future. As for Maddie keeping her real identity from Mick, I'm ambivalent about that, because had she told him right up front, I think he may have taken his sister's victimized approach to the situation and eschewed a neutral relationship with Maddie. Or if they became close, would his feelings have come from some weird sense of guilt or responsibility? In keeping it from him, it's true that Maddie was being dishonest, but that didn't belittle her in my eyes, because I think it was good for Mick to have to find his own way to forgiving her after realizing he loved her. It made it more difficult for him to ignore what REALLY happened and to face the fact that if anyone had a right to feel like a victim it would be Maddie (but she didn't). I don't know; I liked the untidiness of the emotional connections here, and I thought they made sense. And at least the stakes were higher than in See Jane Score, where Jane keeps her identity from Luc.

Charming thrid entry in the Boise writer series - best so far Aug. 1 2007
By Tracy Vest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
True crime writer Maddie Jones is researching a story near and dear to her heart - the double murder-suicide involving her mother and her lover and the betrayed wife which left two families destroyed 17 years ago. Armed with her mother's diaries, she travels to Truly, Idaho to interview the police, townspeople, and hopefully surviving family members. She doesn't count on becoming attracted to Mick Hennessey, the son of the woman who murdered her own mom. Unknowingly, Mick pursues her then discovers her deception after falling in love with her. Will he be able to forgive the daughter of the woman who he thinks ruined his family?

Adding to the mix is Mick's older sister Meg who knows a little more about what went on in their household than she has admitted and who tends to wallow in the past. He fears the publication of the book will open old wounds and cause further damage to his fragile sister.

Gibson's third in the Boise writer series is a step up from her last couple novels. Maddie is a complex heroine with many scars, who hasn't really dealt with her loss. In traveling to Truly, she finally understands the mother she never had a chance to get to know. The chemistry between Mick and Maddie sizzles off the pages, with equal parts romance, confict, and bittersweet memories. Gibson deftly weaves the other Boise writers (Lucy, Adele, and Clare) into the storyline and adds a secondary romance for long suffering Meg to complete the story.

4 1/2 stars. Aug. 1 2007
By Karlyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
4 ½ stars. I loved this latest book by Rachel Gibson. Tangled Up In You is the story of Mick and Maddie, which takes place in Truly, Idaho, the fictional town from the book "Truly Madly Yours". (It is now seven years later, and yes, we get a sneak peak into the lives of Nick and Delany!)

Maddie shows up in town to write the story of a murder / suicide that took place 29 years earlier. Mick is the owner of two bars in town and a former helicopter pilot for the military, and not the least bit happy that the desirable Maddie is un-earthing the story of his parents' death. But she is unlike any woman he has ever met, and they find themselves drawn to each other despite the obstacle of her book.

Maddie is one the best heroines Rachel has penned to date. I just loved her outlook on life, her sense of humor, and even her obsession with over indulging in "hedonistic" desires such as carbs, cheesecake, scented lotions and, uhm, sex. Mick is a classic Rachel Gibson hero. He's a bit rugged, handsome as sin, and pursues his heroine in a way that just make your knees weak! Together, these two really steam up the pages. This is definitely one hot and sexy book, and the passion scenes are very well done.

There was a bit of a mystery to the story, but it is not a "who did it?" story. The romance is the main focus of the story, which was great. There were a few minor parts of the story that bothered me, but they were minor. The biggest one being Meg, Mick's sister. I just didn't get her. I am just glad she wasn't in the story all that much. She remains "damaged" from her parents death, which makes you want to scream GET OVER IT!! The ending was also wrapped up a bit to neatly. Without spoiling anything, all I will say is that I would have liked to see more emotion on both their parts given what happens prior. In short, I can't help but feel that Maddie would have made Mick work much harder for the happily-ever-after. But that goes to show just how much I connected with the hero and heroine. By the end of the book, they felt real and very three-dimensional. Rachel Gibson remains my favorite contemporary romance author.

Three's A Charm! Aug. 25 2007
By Cherise Everhard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the 3rd book in a series about 4 author Friends. The First is Sex, Lies, and Online Dating, the second is I'm In No Mood For Love.

Maddie Dupree is the true crime writer out of her author friends; she spends most of her time writing about serial killers. She has recently moved to Truly, Idaho, to write the most important book of her life. Maddie is setting out to write the story about the town's biggest scandal; a scandal that changed and shaped her life forever.

Mick Hennessey the town bad boy has recently came back to Truly to run the family bars and to watch over his sister and nephew. His life was also rocked by that same scandal many years ago, and he has spent most of his life trying to forget.

While uncovering the past, Maddie is keeping some pretty serious secrets in order to protect herself. Those secrets threaten to harm the one man she never expected to fall for, Mick.

With the first two books of this series I was a little disappointed. They weren't bad; they just weren't up to her usual excellence. With this third book I felt I was finally reading the type of Rachel Gibson book I had previously discovered and loved. Tangled Up In You was sinfully sexy with delectable characters that steamed up the pages one minute and littered them with hilarity in the next minute. This book was a little more predictable than I would have liked, but over all a very enjoyable read.

Better than the last few books, but not Gibson's Best Aug. 11 2007
By C. Dippel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I liked "Tangled Up in You" and I thought it was better than her last two efforts (both of which I've wiped from my memory), but not as good as some of her other books. I thought the chemistry was great between Maddie and Mick and the love scenes were enjoyable, but I found the plot-not that there is much of one-boring and her characters seemed predictable.

Funny! Aug. 10 2007
By J. Enyeart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read most of Rachel Gibson's books and they've all been good but this one is one of the best. There were moments when I laughed out loud. The hero was sexy and it's one of the few books where I didn't feel compelled to skip paragraphs waiting to get to the good stuff. The love scenes were hot and I genuinely cared about these 2 getting together. Highly recommend this book, along with others written by Rachel Gibson.
