2 1/2 Stars at best.
Overall, the plot is not bad. But the introduction really confused me as it switched characters and locations, introduced people we weren't to know after all, etc. Then the story began in earnest and, frankly, I didn't think I could finish the book.Was this review helpful?

Immediately upon meeting our heroine (running her off the road), our hero fondles her. His lust is out of character for him we're told and it felt like such moments were just dropped in to spice up the story. The author would write his feelings about a meeting. Then we'd switch to the heroine's feelings about said meeting. It was boring, unnatural, underdeveloped, and I scanned the majority of the book. The plot actually was reasonably good but I felt the author followed a rather formulaic outline for getting us along. Miss Penelope is a multi-talented woman to say the least, a managing know-it-all is another description. But in the end, she is ready to just walk away from what she's dedicated her life to and is suddenly meek and mild. This book doesn't make me want to read any more by this author. Too formulaic.
