I love Jessica Steele, her books are so funny.
This one was not an exception. It doesn't sound funny, but Ms Steele makes both Phelix and Nathan go through such funny situations to get to the end result, you end up laughing your head off.
Nathan has had reports about Phelix from her much loved friend Henry, he even informs Nathan of Phelix's going to Switzerland. Where Nathan follows Phelix around like a lost puppy, and she never sees this until the end of the book.
Phelix is a shy, downtrodden young woman, her father Edward is really responsible for her mother's untimely death.
Edward is abusive to both his wife and only child. Phelix saw her father abusing her mother on a dark stormy night. When her mother ran away she was struck by a passing car.
Phelix has never been able to over come that incident. And it colors her life.
From the back of the book: 'Reunited: the millionaire and his convenient wife.
