#trowbackSunday: Tangled Up In You by Rachel Gibson


Today I decided to talk about a book that I read a few years ago but that still remains one of my favorites. I’m talking about the Tangled Up In You by Rachel Gibson. In fact, I have to say that all Rachel’s books, and I dare to say that I read almost all of her books, are phenomenal! I can’t point to a book that I didn’t like. But I have two or three in my heart and Tangled Up In You is definitely one of them.

If a friend asked me about a good book recommendation, this book would be one of the top of the list.

The book tells the story of Maddie Dupree that goes to Truly, Idaho to uncover the untold story about town’s sordid past, a murder-suicide that took place twenty nine years ago. As a child, Maddie’s mother was involved in the scandal and now after all this years, Maddie went back to the scene – a local establishment that always belonged to the Hennessys. She wants to uncover the truth, specially since one of the victims was her mother and nothing and no one is going to stand in her way. Even not Mick Hennessy, a black-haired, blue-eyed irresistible men.

Mick’s father was a skirt-chasing heartbreaker who ended up causing disaster for two families. And when Mick discovers that all that Maddie wants is to write about what happened to his father, he get’s mad. What he doesn’t know is that Maddie is keeping secrets and there’s a true reason why she’s so interested in discover everything.

Even though Mick doesn’t want Maddie writing this book, he is attracted to her and wants to get to know her better. 

I love this book so much – it’s funny but with a very intense storyline, a quick reading, and just enough angst to keep me glued to the pages. I was never bored while reading this book. The steamy scenes are hootttt and funny.

Maddie doesn’t want to get married, she doesn’t even want a pet but her views change as the story goes on (she even get a pet that starts to love). Mick is upset about the book and is worried how the gossip will affect his sister. But that isn’t going to stop him from getting involved with Maddie. 

If you like Susan Elizabeth Phillips genre of books then I truly advice you to pick one of Rachel Gibson books, you’ll not be disappointed. Both authors are great and they can not be compared. What I love the most about these two authors are the dialogues, they always amaze me.

“I’ve thought about what I’ve done since I moved to Truly, and I’m sorry that I hurt you, Mick. But I’m not sorry that I met you and fell in love with you. Loving you has broken my heart and caused me pain, but it made me a better person. I love you, Mick, and I hope that someday you find someone you can love. You deserve more in life than a string of women you don’t really care about and who don’t care all that much for you. Loving you taught me that. It taught me how it feels to love a man, and I hope that someday I can find someone who will love me the way that you can’t. Because I deserve more that a string of men who don’t really care about me.”

This is book #3 in the Writer Friends series, but you can read it alone. My advice it to read the entire series because all the books are really good. But there’s no order to read.

Have you read this book? Let me know in the comments what books of this genre you recommend me.
