The overall story had a lot of potential however the relationship between the main characters was not well developed . I'm not real sure how they got from the fussing to the bedroom anytime they communicated it was with sarcasm. Over all I felt the idea for the story was there but it was just thrown together.
Adrien Merrill is 100% proud Cajun. He loves his land, cattle, crops, friends and family. He owns an old New Orleans hotel, but wishes he didn't. He should have never married his now ex-wife. Two years is long enough to mourn and regret. It's now time to begin again, but carefully. After all, aren't all women the same? The moment he meets Jennifer, all his per-conceived notions begin to fade into the background as she slowly turns his Cajun world upside down
I love Jackie Weber's beautifully descriptive writing style. With Counting the Roses, I was drawn into and immersed in Adrien's Cajun Bayou culture, even as it clashed with Jennifer's independent New York perspective. I must admit to being a bit annoyed with personality traits in both Jennifer and Adrian. However, as their guards lowered and their true personalities emerged, I liked them both. Their chemistry was always simmering, but the author left the details to my imagination. Their friends were delightful and the villains detestable. This stand-alone novel was filled with humor, angst, joy and wisdom as it ambled towards a HEA ending.
All in all this is a clean and loving novel that I can recommend to any reader.
The secondary characters and their lives were fascinating. I don't blame Adrien for being cautious with a new relationship. But I don't think Jennifer wrong in her demands about the relationship either. I'm so glad they found their way go an HEA. The ride was well worth it.
However, I'm sure you noticed that I only gave it four stars. The reason was I found the first 35% to 40% was a little slow. Basically, the author described everything in too much detail. Maybe it as the mood I was in. Don't let that stop you from reading this book.
