I enjoyed the story - or at least most of it. Her portrayal of Bonita Springs, FL was spot on. I live here part time and not only go to the same three restaurants that her parents do, but go to the beach at Doc's Beach House, and I know that if she was so accurate with these places that the rest of the book was very likely to be as accurate.
I like books written about outsiders learning to adjust to their new and foreign homes, and this was a good example of one. Sometimes we forget that the British are foreign, but speaking English sometimes seems to be the only thing we have in common.
What didn't I like?
I could have done without the walks that occasionally popped up.
She was generally negative about her husband and at times I wondered why they were even married to each other.
The book ended abruptly, and I never felt a sense of resolution regarding her health problems.
I see that she's now living back in the US and wonder if she's still married and whether the health scare ever materialized into anything.
Guess she'll just have to write a sequel.
The only reason I didn't give AMERICASHIRE five stars was because I felt that the book ended abruptly. There were a couple of unanswered questions that ought to have been dealt with. This was not enough of a lack that I wouldn't recommend it heartily as a good read.
I do, however, think it has a market in certain age groups of women as a light summer at the beach sort of read. Just not my cup of tea at all.
