This novel has its faults, a tried and true storyline that feels like it's pieces of her other novels and the original ending was a bit abrupt. I'm a bigger fan of her historical novels but I have liked all of her contemproaries thus far but EBYT fell a bit flat for me. However, when the paperback was released, McNaught reworked the ending (I think due to the outcry from her fans that something wasn't right about it) and it flows MUCH nicer now and the ending is perfect. Still not her best work but if you are going to read this novel, make sure you read the paperback.
What this book boiled down to was a very detailed soap opera. From what the heroine was wearing and why she changed her clothes to the kind of wood in the conference room, the author stuffs the plot with minutae. The basic storyline was drama, drama, drama - the lovers fall madly in love in less than 48 hours, but she has to break up with her boyfriend of 4 years (4 years!!?!) Through a massive misunderstanding & lots of lies, they part, but she secretly has his love child. The child is kidnapped, and the lovers reunite & become a family. And, by the way, the hero was discarded as a child and has made himself into a multimillion dollar, handsome-as-sin super-powerful enigma. Somebody, please hand me a barf bag.
Kate Donovan is on a tropical island when she meets and falls in love with Mitchell Wyatt. Great story although it was a little predictable. Nice light contemporary romance with a small portion of suspense thrown in.
This book was ok. It was a little drawn out and very perdictable.
Part mystery, part romance, but it's all good. Even my husband, who typically goes for more masculine stuff, read and enjoyed the book.
