WRITING HER OWN HAPPY ENDING?

INTRO
(From Goodreads)


Journalist Lilly Matsuda just writes headlines; she doesn't make them. That is, until she runs afoul of Gunnar Norling while on assignment in the tiny town of Heartlandia. The handsome policeman intrigues more than Lilly's investigative senses…but she isn't going to let Gunnar's megawatt smile or smoldering good looks melt her heart. 

Gunnar isn't a fan of people snooping around Heartlandia. He's been sworn to secrecy about the town's mysterious past, and he refuses to compromise that for anyone…even beautiful Lilly, who's hot on the story's trail. Besides, she's not going to stick around forever, and Gunnar refuses to let his heart get trampled on—unless Lilly decides to put love first.

AUTHOR
Lynne Marshall Lynne used to worry she had a serious problem with daydreaming, then she discovered she was supposed to write the stories in her head. A late bloomer, Lynne came to fiction writing after her children were nearly grown. Now she battles the empty nest by writing stories which always include a romance, sometimes medicine, a dose of mirth, or both, but always stories from her heart. She is a Southern California native, married for almost thirty years, has two adult children she is super proud of, is a dog lover, cat admirer, a power walker, and fellow traveler on this wild road called life! 


From the Author


Dear Reader,
I've always thought it was fun to be introduced to a character in one book then to read their story in the next.  That's exactly what I got to do with Gunnar, Heartlandia's own playboy police Sergeant, who was first introduced in A DOCTOR FOR KEEPS. And his story turns out to be a doozy, too. Enter Lilly, the new journalist from San Francisco with a pert nose for news, whose special knack seems to be how to drive Gunnar batty. Flash forward, and those "batty" sparks turn into fireworks.
But there's always more to a story than meets the eye, and that's the part us authors love the most.  See, Gunnar, as a law enforcement officer, thinks of himself as a guardian for his hometown.  He's a guy who wants to make up for his father's misguided deeds. Let's just say he likes to be in control.  And Lilly is a lady with a privileged upbringing, but who has never felt she measured up to her parents expectations.  So she comes to town with an agenda to get a breaking story to make a name for herself.  Failure is no longer an option.
The problem is, Gunnar will do anything to keep Lilly from discovering Heartlandia's secret before the Mayor makes the big city-wide announcement, and Lilly will do anything to find out exactly what that story is.  The craziest part of all is, with all the action going on, Gunnar and Lilly still manage to fall in love.
I hope you'll enjoy HER PERFECT PROPOSAL as much as I did writing it!
I love getting e-mails from readers at my website, and don't forget to "friend" me at Facebook.
Happy reading,
Lynne
  
REVIEW
 The second book in the 'HOME in HEARTLANDIA' series, HER PERFECT PROPOSAL written by Lynne Marshall.  The book is a stand alone or may be read in series.  Ms. Marshall's books are a joy to read.  They are clean, quick reads that can be enjoyed on a cold winter's day.I liked the way you get to meet a character in one book and in the next book get to know them better.

 Ms. Lilly Matsuda is cited, by Gunnar Norling, the local cop, for jaywalking on her very first day in Heartlandia.  Gunnar is rather a playboy and considers Heartlandia his town to protect. Gunnar likes to be in control and Miss Lilly had a privileged up bringing. Miss Lilly got a stern warning to obey the city's rules. She had just moved there to take over the local newspaper, coming from San Francisco.She is determined to make herself known. Make a name for herself and Gunnar is determined to keep her from finding out the town's secret. Lilly is bound and determined to find out what that secret is. After all of this will Gunnar and Lilly fall in love?? Will Heartlandia ever be the same?

I was given a complimentary copy of HER PERFECT PROPOSAL from the author Lynne Marshall for my view of the book. 

I would give this book 5 STARS.
