I have read a few novels by Cathy Maxwell this year ¿ Because of You (excellent), Treasured Vows (not bad) and The Price of Indiscretion (pretty good). I bought my fourth book by her via B & N and just finished it up. I think this author is good at telling interesting stories and bringing characters to life. This book, You and No Other, was fun as it profiled a 30 year old widowed woman with no children and that of a long standing confirmed bachelor. Caroline and James meet up and begin an interesting on again and off again attraction when her brother in law looses the deed to her house in a card game. The deed of course belongs now to James. Then it is up to Caroline to get it back so, she and her aunt and friends have a place to call home. The interaction between the main characters is solid. I would have liked that James took a little longer to figure out how much he likes and loves Caroline as I felt he declared himself each time too soon. In turn, Caroline took a bit long to trust and learn to love James than was necessary. Like one of the critics, I felt the plot was busy in many ways and the main characters didn¿t get as deeply developed as I would have liked. The side characters of the aunt and her trio of society fallen friends is probably the most charming part of the book. The author did make the scandals each of these friends encountered look acceptable in a time when they would have stayed outcasts for all they did ¿ not get accepted back to society as they did. I enjoyed the two kidnapping scenes that the four older gals pulled off to help out Caroline - out of character for ladies but, charming none the less. The humor is slight and simple but, worthy to note. Passionate love scenes are often few in Ms. Maxwell¿s books so, if that¿s what you need ¿ this one isn¿t for you. If you like detailed stories with busy plots ¿ this is a solid read. Although I liked Because of You by far the most of all her novel series, You and No Other still warrants some praise. I look forward to other books by Ms. Maxwell as her characters are interesting, memorable and the story line always develops well.

You and No Other was such fun to read. I was very impatient to finish the book, but at the same time I was very sorry it came to an end. I loved the clash of wills of main characters. One more time You and No Other is very satisfying read. It's now one of my favorite books.Definitely will read it again, and may be not only once more.

A bunch of aging bimbos interfere with the romance of a poor drab but beautiful widow and a handsome rich man. A little overdone at times. It did have a nice ending though.

I thought this story had a great premise but there just wasn't much to it. Considering the characters in this story, I thought it could have been a lot funnier. In total, I was utterly disappointed with the whole thing. I won't be keeping this book. If your looking for a really good book, read my suggestion. It's AWESOME!!!
