She's Gotta Be Mine by Jennifer Skully
She's Gotta Be Mine Cottonmouth Series)
Dumped? For her husband’s high school sweetheart he hasn’t seen in twenty years? Roberta Jones Spivey isn’t going to lay down for that, no way. Instead, she decides to reinvent herself. The new Bobbie Jones—new haircut, new name, new attitude—will follow her soon-to-be ex to the small Northern California town of Cottonmouth. And there she’ll show him—and his sweetheart—what a big mistake he made.
What better way to show him what he’s missing in the brand new Bobbie Jones than taking up with the town’s local bad boy—who’s also reputed to be a serial killer. Nick Angel is devilishly handsome and sexy as all get-out. In a word, perfect.
It’s all going exactly according to plan...until a real murder rocks the little town of Cottonmouth. Of course, Nick didn’t do it...did he?
She's Gotta Be Mine was an alright book. Not amazing, but not horrible either. Bobbie could be a little annoying at times. She pretty much just did whatever her husband wanted until he left her for his high school sweetheart. The books starts right after that when she is reinventing herself into a sexy, do what she wants woman. She heads up to the same small town her husband is in to show him what he let go.
Nick is the town serial killer. Not sure why, I mean I know what the townspeople say, but serial killer? It is just silly. Nick seems like such a good guy. He does what he thinks is right, but has fun with the townspeople as well. I really enjoyed him.
Bobbie and Nick together as so much fun. She just won't leave him alone since he is the one she wants to be with to show her husband what he is missing. Her husband also has some issues with his high school sweetheart, Cookie, that are making it so she won't divorce her husband. When Cookies husband shows up dead and Bobbie's ex confesses...well then it gets more interesting. Bobbie is convinced it wasn't her ex, nor Nick, but she questions the town. The way she goes about it all is so naive and stupid. She thinks because she has lived here for a few weeks, works in the restaurant that she is one of the townspeople? Really? She is just begging to get herself killed.
That and all of the stupid misunderstandings between Bobbie and Nick made this book less enjoyable than it could have been. I get that she might not trust people so much after her husband left, but she also needs to learn to grow up and not just pretend to. She got on my nerves a bit, and I felt bad for Nick at times. It was a fun story, with some annoying parts which make it not as fun overall as it could have been.
