What, No Roses? based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Boring characters ans dialogue that sounds like a freshman in high school wrote it. I wanted to love this novel but ended up wanting to toss it across the room instead.
Absolutely wonderful! Suspence, romance, and action are packed into one spactacular package. What more could a buyer want? With twists and turns throughout the whole book, you'll be racing through each page. Anticipation will be thrumming inside you until the last page, and you won't want it to end! It's my first book by Marianne, and I can assure you it won't be my last. I highly HIGHLY recommend this book to romance readers everywhere!
Journalist Dora Duncan resolves to avoid dangerous assignments, drop her boyfriend Nick who apparently dropped her already without informing her as he no longer calls, e-mails etc., and especially no longer wait for her sweetheart on Valentine¿s Day. At work and at love, she is disenchanted.------------- The FBI recruits Dora on a dangerous assignment though they do not like using civilians. They want her to travel back in time to February 1929 to prevent Nick, already there, from changing history. She agrees and in a blink of an eye she and a rodent go back to 1929 Chicago. There she finds herself in a wild scenario as her new boyfriend is a mobster who adores her feet and another gangster wants her in his bed she has not had as many sexual opportunities in her entire adult life mostly in the next century. Still the mission is simple keep Nick out of the St. Valentine¿s Day massacre.-------------------- This fine satirical time travel romantic suspense will please sub-genre readers due to the solid intelligent characterizations. Dora and her ratty companion behave like fish out of water and the people she meets are eccentric caring individuals who happen to be on the illegal side of Prohibition. As Marianne Mancusi did with the frivolous fun frolic, A CONNECTICUT FASHIONISTA IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT, WHAT, NO ROSES? is a delightfully amusing lighthearted romp.-------------------- Harriet Klausner
