Alice and James came together under false assumptions.
Alice was sent off to boarding school at a young age then she lost her job due to a fire in the factory. Now trying to start a new life with a new husband that wants to live in separate bedrooms. Will she ever find happiness? Why did her husband marry her if he doesn't want to be with her in all ways? Is there another reason he married her? Will they be able to find love together?
Alice is a strong woman and will do what she has to do to survive. Even if it means doing it on her own.
The story was good and made you stand behind this wonderful woman and cheer her on in this small fishing village where she grew up.
I liked how the author described the state and what business went on there, fishing!
James, now he loved her from the moment he laid eyes on Alice. But just like a man he fought it tooth and nails. What a round about circle they played getting to the point of James finally telling Alice he loved her.
Helping her keep the fishing business and teaching her to run it was a true sign of his love and trust. Wonderful story!
While I will suspend my disbelief and accept the original situation that the author establishes as the basis of her plot, I will NOT ignore human nature. All characters need to react normally. In this case, a mail order bride goes to meet her "groom" and is spurned by the groom because his original girl friend and he make up. So the BROTHER who is not looking for a bride and doesn't like his brother's welching on the bargain, decides to marry this woman.
Wow. Where to start. First, marriage: it was forever back then; furthermore, NO MAN who is emotionally available is going to be willing to commit so prematurely ABSENT a motivational factor. As a motivational factor, "my brother is an ass" isn't working for me. Second, what book have the other reviewers been reading? Were they paid to like the book? Or do they think that the reviews are for the benefit of the author, who will probably not ever read the reviews?
Please write about things you know about. Please do not share your plot ideas with others, as if I like your writing and I like your ideas, I want to read YOUR books. Exceptionally interesting plot ideas have been ruined by inept handling and poor writing.
I understand that sometimes the blurb describing the book is written better than the book itself. But I have noticed that this situation is much more frequent when the plot idea is shared.
Use the one chapter option to see if you like the author's writing, as the blurbs make this series sound better than it is.
