This was a very cute Chick Lit book for those of you who like that. If you like Harlequin or romance novels I'm sure you will love this book.
Great , quick, funny read. It is a great book to pick for a quick timeout from life.
Reviewer: Teresa Medeiros "THE VAMPIRE WHO LOVED ME, coming October 2006" (Kentucky) -
I just loved this charming romance by Elizabeth Bevarly! She took two characters, Natalie and Jack, and put them in an old Victorian house with an eccentric landlady and made magic happen. The characters seem so real and so funny because they think exactly the way we would probably all think if we found ourselves in this situation. Their thought processes and interaction ring totally true in a sort of Bridget Jones way. The mafia and pop culture references made me laugh out loud. With each encounter, you genuinely get a sense of Natalie and Jack falling in love. Jack may be something of a mystery man, but it was fun watching Natalie try to "solve him". I can't think of a more delightful way to spend an afternoon than curled up with a warm cup of cocoa and this book!
It's true what they say-all the good guys are married...or have Mob connections!
And natalie Dorset should know. The guy who moved in downstairs may be gorgeous, but the things he says-who uses "whacked" anymore?-and the way he dresses...Well, let's just say that Jack Miller isn't the type you bring home to Mom. Good enough reason for Natalie to stay clear.
Too bad their landlady is cracking matchmaking schemes that make covert ops look like child's play. But before this little-okay, it's a pretty big attraction can get out of hand, Natalie is determined to get to the bottom of Jack's story.
Because maybe..just maybe..this time the good guy wears black.
