Review: Crime and Periodicals by Nora Everly

The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

In Green Valley, Tennessee everybody knows everybody, but nobody knows Sabrina Logan.

Sabrina has been hiding in plain sight for years. Living her life inside of books, dutifully helping her family, and hoping no one will notice her. So far? Mission accomplished!

Yet when sexy—and distrustful—sheriff, Wyatt Monroe returns to town with his daughters, he definitely notices the quiet librarian everyone else overlooks. The single dad can’t seem to shake thoughts of shy Sabrina. Without quite understanding the impulse, Wyatt makes his mission finding her again, so he can . . . well, he’ll just have to reckon with that later.

What Wyatt discovers is a woman who trusts too easily, but who’s afraid to live. Trust doesn’t come easily to Wyatt. But living? That’s never been a problem.

And he’d sure like to show her how.

Yay! The story of Sabrina and Wyatt and now I get to tell you how much I enjoyed them and everything else in the book.

Sabrina was a character that I could support.  She dealt with a lot of anxiety and extreme shyness but there is one thing she will fight for and it is her family! However, while fighting for her family, she runs into Wyatt, a sexy police officer of the fine town of Green Valley.  Sabrina’s shyness and beauty intrigues Wyatt and he makes it his personal duty to find out more about this town’s beauty. 

I loved that Wyatt took his time getting to know Sabrina and letting her open to him on her time frame rather than his.  And, I loved how Wyatt’s two daughters willingly opened their hearts and acceptance to Harry, who also suffers in anxiety.  I think both Sabrina and Wyatt brought out the best of each other and their family.  

I must admit that it seemed very easy for Sabrina to start breaking out of her shell once Wyatt was introduced into her life.  It kinda felt like Wyatt was what she needed to fix her, which didn’t seem right. I feel like in real life it wouldn’t have been that easy nor as quick for someone to grow that dramatically.  Sabrina spoke a lot about going to therapy, which I loved, but she never really attended a session in the book.  I will also say that I disliked the whole Michael plot.  I felt like that was inserted for more drama than an actual plotline for the readers.  

Super cute addition into the Penny Reid’s Universe of magical characters!
