    Classic Romance not for me... Had a disconnect with the characters

    For Read Your Writes Book Reviews At first glance everything about this book is appealing. The cover looks very nice. It draws you in. The book description has you thinking this could be a very interesting read. Then, that’s about it for me. I desperately want to say that I love this book or even like it, but unfortunately I can’t. Peter is a partner at an advertising firm who receives a gift from his sister and kids for his birthday in the form of an eight week cooking class. Ellie is twenty-seven years old and the youngest of six children. She generally drifts from job to job until she decides she wants to open her own cooking school, since cooking is her passion. Peter and Ellie first met on a blind date. Neither one had a good day, but didn’t want to cancel the date at the last minute, so they went on it. Nothing about the date was good. The food at the restaurant which Peter picked was horrible. The singing waiter’s fake mustache fell into Ellie’s cold soup. Peter and Ellie were involved in a car accident, with a cab. Honestly, hearing about the story is funny. As long as you weren’t one of the people in the story. Throughout the book, you have Peter wanting to have a relationship with Ellie, but Ellie is afraid of what having a relationship with a man who has kids will do to her career. Since Peter’s ex-wife got on a plane to New York and never came back, a certain part of Peter wishes that Ellie wasn’t so career driven, not that he wants someone to just sit at home and take care of the house and kids. This book was originally written in 1994. You would think it would be able to withstand the test of time. For me it didn’t. I just found it hard to hear the words, “my darling, my love”. I mean maybe that worked in 1994, but I just don’t think it does in 2012. It’s not like either one of the characters are royalty. The story takes place in Chicago. For me, it’s not that this book was bad. I just had a disconnect with the characters a quarter of the way through the book. By the end it was better, but my disconnect was already there. These characters are faced with having to make sacrifices for love and they have to ask themselves if this is the person they really want to make those sacrifices for. Book Source: NetGalley
