Good book but not her best. I loved the hero and heroine and their interaction. But I felt like some of the story was glossed over and unbelievable. The whole investigation into the hero's innocence and the process of proving it was done outside of the story and told after the fact. The last 50 pages were so rushed I was glad when it finally ended.
I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me why I love Mary Balogh so much. I grew to love the characters especially Hannah. It is a simple but beautiful love story. No great suspense or angst. No fighting, misunderstandings or jealous rages, just a slow journey of two people who are not happy (but not really unhappy either), discovering each other as lovers then as friends.
Not my favorite of the series, but still enjoyable. It was witty although I did get tired of everyone muttering comments under their breath. I liked the premise and I was entertained by all the characters. I wouldn't mind hearing the story of her brother, Will, and Sarah, her companion and how they got together.
I love Cathy Maxwell but this was not a book I could finish. Corinne was not a character I could like. I found her very selfish and snooty. Maybe she redeemed herself later on in the book but I found that I really didn't care.
Not my favorite by her. It was hard to follow. I felt it just jumped around at times and was confusing. There were secrets that were hinted at that I just didn't care enough to find out about. I didn't finish it.
I couldn't finish this book. I am a fan of her older stuff so I thought I would try a more contemporary book by Small. I thought the characters were flat and Small tried to make everyone witty. The dialogues were boring and the descriptive narratives were uninspired. I really like the story plot but didn't care enough about the characters to read any further.
It took me a little while to get into it, but once I did, Wow! It was so intriguing. Just when you think you have it all figured out, you don't. I love that the ending didn't leave you hanging. She finished all the loose ends.
I am a new Robyn Carr fan because of this book. It was such a good story. Mel is trying to accept the fact that she is widowed young. This book really delves into how she works through her guilty feelings and learns to trust again. The book is so easy and smooth. There is not too much sex. Just the right amount to be realistic and necessary to the story.
Very predictable and boring. I found myself wanting to read more about the kitten they found than the crime. The kitten storyline ended up being a dud. I thought the author might use the kitten in an interesting way. I used to love this series, mostly because I love Maine, but I find the same pattern over and over again in her stories. This book has many editing errors that are distracting as well. I might be done with the series.
Good read about a single mother who comes home to her family because of health problems. She has to deal with mistakes she has made in the past and try to understand her relationship with her father. I got very emotional reading this so keep a box of tissues handy. This story definitely has a Christian theme.
Not her best Bocastle book. I liked the characters but found the whole story line very weak. She really could have fleshed their story out so much more. I have a feeling that on the whole, this is one book in the series that could be missed.
