    This One Is A Little Far Fetched...

    I have read a few novels by Cathy Maxwell this year. I bought via B & N, ¿Because of You¿ (excellent), ¿You and No Other¿ (pretty good), ¿The Price of Indiscretion¿ (pretty good) and ¿Teasured Vows¿ (ok). In this next book. ¿Falling In Love Again¿, I would rate it average. I like the way this author writes but, I couldn¿t get into this story or the characters until the middle to end of the book. I didn¿t like that a ¼ of this book revolved around the hero John marrying the heroine Mallory when they were barely 17 and 20 years old. An arranged marriage set up by their parents to hold their fortunes and lands. Both cave in to their parents demands even though it isn¿t what they want and they are marrying total strangers (not unusual for the time though). They never had a real marriage as John left their wedding night and stayed away for 7 years. During this time he toured the globe, was a military man, drank, caroused and had lots of lady loves. He never thought about his ¿wife¿ while gone, never felt guilty for his actions and never felt married. In turn, Mallory, stayed faithful and true to John during the seven year absence and ran the estate and did her wifely duties without her spouse present. I felt she was a bit wimpy to wait so long for one who had clearly forgotten her. She got the courage to finally find him once her money ran out, her lands were taken away and another man was interested in marrying her. The story didn¿t really begin until they met up again at John¿s current mistress¿s house, which is where Mallory finally found him. The story from there is okay as they had to go undercover to locate John¿s uncle as he had been silently stealing all their money away for years and practically had John and Mallory thrown into jail for old debts unpaid. John and Mallory got to play man and wife and be servants in the country on a friend¿s estate while they tried to locate the uncle so, they could clear up the problems he created for them. During this exile, John and Mallory learn all about each other and start all over again. Although, there was some twists and turns to move things along and a few misunderstandings to perk things up, the story line was pretty predictable. The title of the book says it all. I didn¿t like how quickly they took to one another after so many years apart, nor that they were able to make things right so fast or fall so easily after all that had happened earlier. A little unbelievable to me?! I think a real female heroine would have had a lot to work through - especially when your husband leaves you high and dry and breaks all his vows then¿after knowing you only a few weeks, he sees the real you and falls in love??? This story line seemed a wee bit too innocent and naive for me. I¿m disappointed to say I did not find the story line to be fresh or unique, nor the characters interesting. I do like this author and her writing style so, I gave her 3 stars for trying. The first three books I mentioned above are much better so, consider those first.
