If one has ever wondered whatever happened to all those Dukes and Earls from our favorite historical romances, look no further! In "Wife By Wednesday", Ms. Bybee has successfully taken the ever popular regency tome' of titles, heirs money and inheritances, transplanted it into contemporary society and turned it on its ear! The writing is down-to-earth, girl-next-door readable, the dialogue quick, witty with just enough snark to make it pop and the romance is a sweet, slightly steamy treat! It's pure escapism, feel good fun that makes a reader happy for the pure pleasure of indulging.
In this story, Ms. Bybee has brought to life two engaging characters, a conniving villain and a series of obstacles which leave you turning the pages with eager anticipation to find out what happens next. The first non-historical one I have read, it's no less engaging than her time travel books. If you love those, then this one is not to be missed.
I have never been inspired to write a review of a book before, but I feel as though it is my duty to fellow readers to warn them against this book. Honestly, I am floored that Wife by Wednesday received such high ratings, and I wonder if the author's friends and family didn't write the high reviews themselves to get people to buy this book. (Okay, I realize that's cynical and probably untrue, but honestly, I can't think of any other reason that this book would get such high ratings.)
A quick read, yes, but an entirely predictable one, and I did not care at all about any of the characters. There was no development that would make a reader feel anything other than bored by the characters and their motivations. The plot was also ridiculously hard to believe; it was far too contrived, and as another reviewer pointed out, it required too much suspension of disbelief. At some points, I laughed out loud because of the canned plot/dialogue. Nothing in this book ever felt true or genuine, including the long, drawn out scenes of intimacy between the two main characters. Also, characters who seemed important (i.e., Howard, the spiteful cousin of one of the main characters, Blake) ended up having absolutely nothing to do with the plot. Said cousin often appeared in scenes whispering to other characters and casting suspicious glances at Blake. I thought that this would eventually be relevant to the plot--that something would come out with this cousin. I was wrong-- he ended up being completely irrelevant. Other such characters made similarly useless appearances throughout.
Finally, the writing was just poor.Read more ›
I gave up my Nook for the month of November to participate in NaNoWriMo. I mean I went so far as to banish the device to my mother's house.
But I just couldn't resist Wife by Wednesday. I kept reading all these awesome review tweets. And then I started following Catherine Bybee who is very cool and gracious. I'm a sucker for an author who responds to her readers.
So last night, I gave in. Without my nook, I had no other choice but to start reading Wife by Wednesday on my smartphone. At 11pm, I started reading away on my itty bitty screen and then I couldn't stop. The characters were so amazingly adorable. The way Blake and Samantha connected and developed their relationship was so much fun to read. They had me smiling throughout the book, laughing and crying along the way. They were just really cute and sassy, and I just had to finish the book right then to read their Happily Ever After (which came by the way just before 4 in the morning).
I read the whole dang thing on my cell phone people. If that doesn't show how great this book is, then I don't know what will. ;)
Congrats to Catherine Bybee on her first indie novel. You definitely have a winner. I can't wait to read the sequel.
