About the Author

Christie Ridgway has never lived east of the Pacific Ocean, north of San Francisco, or south of San Diego. To put it simply, she's a California native who loves to travel but is happy to make the Golden State her home. She began her writing career in fifth grade when she penned a volume of love stories featuring herself and a teen idol who will probably be thrilled to remain nameless. Later, though, after marrying her college sweetheart, Christie again took up writing romances, this time with imaginary heroes and heroines. In a house full of males—one terrific husband, two school-age sons, a yellow dog, and tankfuls of fish, reptiles, and amphibians—Christie makes her own place (and peace) writing the kinds of stories she loves best.


More About the Author

Christie Ridgway is a California native and author of over thirty contemporary romances. A five-time RITA finalist and USA Today bestselling author, she writes sexy, emotional reads starring determined heroines and the men who can't help but love them. Married to her college sweetheart, Christie lives in Southern California in a house filled with boys and pets. She writes as an escape from sports equipment, football on TV, and dog hair.

I thought this book was a mildly amusing quick read, but there were a few things that kept me from really loving it. Maybe I'm being a little bit critical, but I thought it was annoying that the writer kept reminding us that the heroine (Angel) was supposedly "strong" and/or "tough" because she had a difficult childhood, yet every time she was around the hero (Cooper) she was falling over backward (literally) only to be rescued by him. I can understand it happening once, twice at a stretch, but I believe it happened more like five or six times. I understand that we're supposed to see it as a metaphor for the imbalance he was creating in her life, yada yada, but come on! We get it already! And for a writer on an assignment, Angel sure had an awful lot of time to spend playing cat-and-mouse with Cooper. When did she ever work?! I know, I know...it's only a story. But it's attention to details like that that make the difference between a good book and a great one.

But then I love everything Christie Ridgway writes. "Do Not Disturb" is in keeping with all her stories, funny but with lots of emotion, too. Her characters always make me smile and always leave me feeling good. And her California settings make me want to book a vacation to the west coast ASAP. Can't recommend this author, or this book, enough.

This is the third book I've read by Christie Ridgway and I must say, I enjoyed it immensley. The story moved along at a good pace and all of the characters were quite likable. The relationship between Angel and Cooper was also well developed; as was the secondary relationship between Judd and Beth.

The only real problem I had with this book was the fact that the entire premise is that Angel is the daughter of Stephen Whitney, a Thomas Kincade type man, but his current family knows nothing of her existance. Upon his death, Angel travels to his home under the guise of writing a news article on his life.

Internally, the reader comes to know Angel and the life she led that made her bitter towards her father. The reader also finds out that Stephen was not really the saint his current wife and the world thought him to be; aside from being Angel's father, he was also involved with another woman.

None of this, however, is revealed to the characters in the book. Angel comes to terms with her daddy issues, but the reaction of his family is never discussed. The only mention comes in an epiloug and is basically summed up with the sentence "Stephen's family accepted her with open arms" or some such drivel.

Other than that, the book is enjoyable and enteraining. Christie Ridgway is quickly making her way onto my 'must read' list.

I have always enjoyed Christie Ridgway's humor--I've read everything she's written. She has every right to strike out in a different direction but the cover of the book shouldn't be a cartoon promising a romp--not that that is Ms. Ridgway's fault.
The hero and heroine begin as very interesting characters. I loved the description of the heroine and what she was like at the beginning. Then she changed, became dull, wandering.
This book almost seems like an very early effort (obviously unpublished) with a rewritten and excellent beginning and a great ending. In between, there is a lifeless secondary plot and little resolution of the heroine's problem with her father.
If you want to enjoy a good read, try her other books.

While I have a few quibbles about undeveloped secondary plots/characters, I have to say that I absolutely loved the hero and heroine of this contemporary romance. The setting and premise were unusual and the author's use of humor showed through. The heroine, Angel, was tough but not one of the "kick-a@$" heroines I have grown to loathe. She's had a difficult past but it doesn't keep her from following her dreams and goals. She doesn't wallow in self-pity. And the hero, Cooper, was sexy, sweet, and a guy who loves his family - a real keeper. I read this book in just two sittings and very much enjoyed it.

This book took me by surprise. I was perusing the book shelves, desperate for a good read, when I saw the cover and decided to take a chance on an author who was unknown to me. I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed the budding relationship between Connor and Angel. The humour was refreshing, the plot was well-developed, the characters were charming and the novel was well written. I'll be looking for more from Ms. Ridgeway

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Angel Buchanan is an investigative reporter and takes the opportunity to investigate her father's death. Of course no-one knows that he's her father and she wants to get revenge on his squeaky clean image as "Artist of the Heart". When she gets embroiled in the family and meets C J Jones, an ex-lawyer who had some heart attacks and decided to change his life.

She finds that her preconceptions of her father and his second family are shaky and that she has to ask herself what she wants for the future.

It's not a bad read, but I felt that sometimes Angel wasn't very believable as a journalist. The relationship between her and CJ was quite believable and touching. Some of the other relationships were quite believable as well. The story was just not all that strong.
