Just Shy of Paradise by Carole Thayne Warburton

Carole Thayne Warburton writes an interesting story using a refreshingly unusual protagonist. Lily Anderson is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty - that's about all that is normal about her. She's painfully shy, prone to horrendous anxiety attacks, wide in the hips, addicted to ice cream, and overcoming an addiction to alcohol. She also loves fishing, and hopes one day to be in a romantic relationship. She meets Sky Brown, a Native American Shoshone, who is accused of stealing her grandfather's fishing pole worth a few thousand dollars. Throughout this tale, Carol weaves in bits of fascinating Shoshone history in a way that broadens the reader's perspective and understanding of the wrongs inflicted upon the Northwestern Shoshone. As the reader, we relate to Lily while hoping that she can rise above her fears and see the true beauty that has miraculously come into her life.
