Well, it's better than some of her recent work <Spoilers!!>,
This review is from: Heart Of Stone (Mass Market Paperback)
Boone is jerk who hates his sister's best friend, Keely (in the same way that Stuart hated Ivy, and JB hated Tellie, and so forth). Keely is plain, blond, and has light eyes (I think, but she doesn't wear glasses), and a medical condition/secret scars. However,the heroine of this DP book has a real job! And parents (dysfunctional, but not dead)! And we finally find out who sold the Congressman who was beaten by Calhoun Ballenger in the election's daughter <Julie?> the drugs that killed the sheriff's brother. Or was it Ivy's (from Winter Roses) sister who did that? It doesn't matter, because recently DP hasn't cared about continuity either!
More drug dealers in Jacobsville, land of the ever-shifting geographical location. Evil-doers doing evil, no shades of grey, unless it is convenient to the "plot". The Pendletons from Fearless aren't blood siblings (I smell a new book storyline!)and a whole bunch of other stuff that gets in the way of what should have been the "romance" in this romance novel. The hero and heroine interact more with other people than with each other! But, again, it is significantly better than many of Diana Palmer's recent efforts. Of course, that isn't truly saying much.
*I ordered the book from eHarlequin, because I am a glutton for the trainwreck nature of DP writings.

I appreciate your review, but I wish you hadn't included spoilers. I am going to have wait and read your take on the book until after I read it myself.

There aren't any true spoilers for anyone who has read one of DP's books in the past. And the one spoiler doesn't even have any effect on the plot of the book-but it was something different! Except for a similar plot point in earlier books....
I hope you enjoy the book, or at least find it as entertaining as I did.
