A so-so offering from Krentz. Fil was likeable in her own way I suppose, but the story had more of a "ha, ha, look at me now" vibe than it should have. Trent was also Krentz's typical macho hero, but that's her M.O. and it works. I will say, however, it would have been much more interesting if Fil had still been overweight but confident in herself and her abilities as a fashion designer. Trent was sure he would have wanted Fil, extra weight and all, so given a dowdy Fil instead of the sex kitten he did get, would he have chosen differently?
Filomena had come home for her sister's wedding. But if small-town Gallant Lake was expecting the plump, dowdy, insecure girl who had left nine years ago, they were in for a surprise. Trent had just six weeks to win her or lose her forever -- and losing wasn't in his game plan.
Enjoyable Krentz, good story.
The whole town was buzzing!
Filomena Cromwell's return home after ten years set small, sleepy Gallant Lake on its ear. Gorgeous, successful and driving a flashy Porsche, she was no longer the mousy girl who'd once found her fiancé in bed with another woman. And Fil was determined to show the town just how irrepressible she'd become!
Trent Ravinder, a guest at the Cromwell family lodge, observed Fil's escapades with amusement. In her quieter moments he knew she was warm, sincere and loving. He'd let her have her day, as long as she reserved her nights for him.
