We meet many of the Simons in this book and frankly there seemed to be so many that it got overwhelming, but I think that's the writing style and not my inability to grasp large families. There are a number of book series out there that seem to handle large families a bit better.
So there's a series before this one that is about the Barker Triplets, if which I only read the first, mainly because it was about a female hockey player and I thought that was interesting on its own, but now I wonder if I needed to read the others two in order to understand what's happening in this book. There are references that made me feel like I was missing something, but I really think that goes to how the author chose to present the story.
I would have liked this more if I could have read more about the burgeoning relationship between Abby and Tucker at the bar, the nights they spent getting to know each other. The author told us it happened, but I would have bought this couple more if I had read the build up. I was not fond of the ending either. There's resolution, but I wanted a better declaration from him at the end than come live is this crappy run down mansion with me.
The writing got better as the story went on, with more showing, rather than telling, but there was sloppiness in this book, with typos and grammar issues. A good editor and proofer are necessary.
Tucker's wife has been missing for several years (lost in a plane crash) and he has been unable to close his old life and move onto a new one.
Tucker asks Abby for a favor - to attend a wedding with him as his date for several reasons.
Abby, already in love with Tucker, agrees and hopes she can keep her feelings in check.
Abby is strong, she is talented (can draw), is perceptive, and a good person overall.
Tucker, although still messed up over the loss of a wife that he loved, is finding himself feeling hopeful with Abby. Hope for closure, love and happiness.
Abby and Tucker have great interactions. There is no high drama. But a pretty comfortable ride from friendship, to heated chemistry to love.
The ending is a bit weak - the big reveal about his wife is a bit disappointing. I kept expecting that there would be a big story behind her disappearance.
Would also loved to have a bit more info about Abby's drawing. She is supposedly very talented. Would have enjoyed to hear more about her successes as an artist. It wasn't really flushed out. Just briefly mentioned.
I liked this 'simple' romance novel (I mean, that it was a comfortable ride, nothing outrageous) to a happy ending.

Another author I love. Really well developed story. Emotional at times, but the author makes sure that love prevails, and isn't that all we can hope for in our romance novels. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Dana
