But it gets better. If, like me, you enjoy a good romance novel but are too often disappointed by slick, predictable plots and characters who lack depth, you definitely don't want to miss this one. The story has twists and turns like a good mystery, and they're believable because they grow out of the characters' natural reactions to everything that happens. You totally know why Olivia does the things she does, why Walter reacts the way he reacts, because these aren't generic characters – they're real people. (And, yes, Walter. I love that his name's Walter, not Chris or Jake or Will… especially not Will... because although he's very attractive, he's a real person, not a stock romance hero with stock romance flaws. It means Olivia can be believably ambiguous in her feelings about him.)
"Girl in Trouble" is a real story about real people in real relationships, written by a woman who's a mistress of her craft. It's funny, sad, surprising, sexy, and riveting. Highly recommended!
In most romantic fiction, you kinda have an idea of what will happen in the end. What I love about this book is that the HOW is so so much better than the WHAT. Each character is fully fleshed out - even if their appearances are fleeting. There's a solid logic to how events transpire and there's sense in decisions people make. To find a writer who creates characters that don't frustrate readers is a wonderful thing. With this, (and really, any of Rhoda's books) you won't find lead characters being obtuse for no particular reason; but instead, you will find people who have realistic conversations and relatable doubts and anxieties; any misunderstandings are purely happenstance and not contrived.
To sum up, if you like the people in your books to act like rational people and not sit around whinging when a phone call would easily fix the situation PLUS have a clever sense of humour, then this book's for you. It's jolly, it's funny, it's sad, and it's real. I just wish people hadn't been cutting onions in the room while I was reading it.
She and Walter help each other as they learn to deal with these issues. A very touching and
heart warming story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
I liked Walter. His ex is moving to America, taking their daughter with her. He’s really struggling with that and with his own role in the whole failed marriage thing. He’s a kind man and attractive too :).
There is a lot of drama throughout the book. It had real depth, especially in the second half of the book. Halfway through, I couldn’t put the book down anymore. It was good, I liked it, but for me it was just shy of 5*. Two reasons:
1. All in all, it took me some time to connect with Olivia. She had so many hard edges. But later on Olivia softened, so it got better.
2. The spiders. Described in great detail. Ugh. They keep turning up in this book (especially in the beginning) and I didn’t like that. Yep, I am one of those many people with that totally irrational fear of the creepy monsters…
I received a complimentary copy of this book and voluntarily posted an honest review.
