I read the reviews and thought "oh no I'm not going to like this", but it was not as bad as some of the reviews. It was a good book, not quite as fun to read as the previous Impossible Bachelors, but I can honestly say there are many more books out there that are not as good. The story line was a little blah and almost forced into a happy ending but heah it's fiction! In comparison with her other books it was probably only a two or three - overall I would it give it a 3.5-4. Not one I had a hard time putting down, but still enjoyed.
Like a toad squashed on the road ... flat, flat, flat and completely one dimensional.
Sorry to say it, as the first two attempts by the author weren't bad at all, but this one was tough to slog through. Better luck next time?
Couldn't wait for this book to come out. I loved "When Harry Met Molly" and "Dukes to the Left of Me..." This book simply must have been written by a ghost writer, as it is difficult to believe Kramer could write such boring, flat, uninteresting tripe, with little plot development and characters to which I could not relate! Such a "blah" book! Skipped from chapter to chapter waiting for interesting developments...alas, it never happened! I will read Kramer's next book, based on her first two. But if this had been her only offering, I wouldn't buy another. Bah Humbug!
Capt Arrow deserved a little better than this or maybe Jilly dserved a little better personality..? First book was okay enough to want to read the 2nd book, which I really liked, but this one just didn't quite make it. Hopefully the next in the series will prove it's every-other-one.
I found this story charming. I agree it started off slow but didn't take long to fully engage my interest. Perhaps if others hadn't "skimmed" they might have noticed the real and humorous interactions, situations and dialogue between the ensemble of characters offered in CWACOM. So well written I was chuckling and it was often as if I could see the "scenes" being played out for me on a stage. I liked the story, it's heroes and heroines, and all the secondary characters so much I read from cover to cover before I put it away. I have enjoyed each of the books in this series and can't wait to read Lumley's story!
