A review copy of this book was provided by the author via the author’s street team and via Celebrate Lit (I also purchased a print copy). A review was not required and all views and opinions expressed are my own.
Actually yes there is, and Pepper Basham does a wonderful job of crafting one of the sweetest romances I've read in a while. Both Wes and Eisley are healing from painful pasts; he's a reformed rake and she's barely over the betrayals of her ex, a serial adulterer. Both want to trust God and throw themselves into His grace and incredible plans for them, but the reality of life often gets in the way. People and circumstances continually try to tear these two apart, but they hang onto each other with cheer-worthy tenacity, through tough circumstances and across oceans. Pepper's use of the Song of Solomon quote about love that many waters cannot quench fits perfectly into this story.
The individual scenes and subplots Pepper crafts took my breath away. England comes alive, from the fancy Christmas gala to Wes' family home, Rose Hill Cottage. I love the interactions between Eisley, Wes, and later, Wes and the kids. I got a real kick out of the tower scene, and enjoyed Eisley's journey toward becoming a true author. I wanted to see more of it, and maybe a little more of Julia Ramsden's story. If Pepper truly wanted to go epic, she could've made this story a historical/contemporary novel, although what exists is great on its own.
In general, I wanted and needed to see "more" of a few things. For instance, Eisley drops bits of her siblings' stories, but doesn't go into detail. I love where this is going--I want to see Pepper develop a whole series based on the Jenkins family. But the problem is, the way Eisley talks about these stories at times, it feels like the reader should already know all the details. That could've been done better. As noted, I wanted to see more of Eisley's research project, and maybe some more character development for Vivian. She's a good villain, but a bit flat--right at the end, she seemed borderline psychotic. Kind of a letdown--I've seen the crazy ex before. I would've also liked to see less of Eisley and Wes' conflict revolving around whether Eisley would or would not leak information to the tabloids. Seen it, and besides, she proved over and over that she wouldn't. At one point I wanted to ask Wes, "Dude, when are you gonna get it?"
The Kindle edition, at least, had some editing problems. There were a few misspellings or varied ones (Lizzie, Lizze, Lizzy, McElroy, MacLeroy, etc.) There were also some name changes; a minor character is called Mack Richardson, then Mack Larson. This was annoying at times, but forgivable in light of the good stuff. My only advice to Pepper is, please write more.
