This was a very good read. The story had humor and an engaging pair of lead characters who worked out their issues in a logical and caring fashion while growing closer to each other. This was a story about the mistakes people make in their lives and how taking the hard road to fix these mistakes can sometimes lead to something so much better. It's also about what it takes to create a lasting partnership and how no relationship can survive without forgiveness. Wow! All that and humor too!
Kelly is a down-to-earth, steady woman. She's engaged and getting ready to settle into the life that's been prepared for her by friends and family. But, before she takes that step, she wants to find out something about the father she never knew who died before she was born. So she heads to Paris where he was born. She no sooner arrives than she is mugged. He takes her money, passport, engagement ring, and worst of all...the few letters from her father to her mother that were all she had left of him. She's dazed and in shock.
Will is a carefree, irresponsible man who's still running from family responsibilities. He's no knight in shining armor (just ask him)! But something inside him urges him to help Kelly out when he comes upon her immediately after the mugging. What follows is a delightful story about lust and love, lies and forgiveness, and learning what you really want...and trust. The story was tight and flowed well. There were no TSTL moments and no HUGE MISUNDERSTANDINGs. The characters liked each other, were nice to each other, and quibbled with each other...just like a real relationship! I didn't cry while reading this book...but when I finished I did have a big smile on my face...
This was a great book! Makes me want to go to Paris! Some of the issues the characters were dealing with were wrapped up a little too easily at the end, but all in all, I really liked it! A fast read - I read it in one day - perfect for the beach or a long car ride!
This is the first book I read by Jennifer Greene. I LOVED it. At first, I thought it was going to be decided what was going to happen too soon, but I was wrong. I was kept wondering what was next for the characters. I will be definitely be reading more by her in the future. A MUST READ!!
Out of the "Blame it" books this was good, but not the best one (I thought "Blame it on Chocolate" was the best one). I did enjoy it, but just not a keeper for me.
A very quick humorous and enjoyable book.
