I have enjoyed Melody Carlson's books before, but this one was rather disappointing. The book description even gets the main character's name wrong. It calls her "Dorothy," instead of "Daphne." This one was too simple, almost like it was one of Carlson's young adult novels, but the main character was in her thirties. In addition, the worst thing was it's not a stand-alone. You have to read the next one in the series to get the ending and know which man Daphne ends up with. Somehow, I failed to see that when I bought the book, and I'm surprised. Carlson is too good an author and too established to resort to this underhanded method. In my opinion, instead of garnering readers, it discourages them. It certainly lowered my opinion of her and her books, and I refuse to buy the next one under this circumstance. I will not be bullied or coerced into buying another book. What a sorry practice, especially for a Christian writer. "Over a barrel" is sort of how I feel about this, and it's not a comfortable feeling.
Daphne is a writer for the New York Times. Her Aunt Dee ha just passed away and she goes to Appleton for the funeral. At the reading of the will, she is left everything - on one condition - that she marry within the year. WOW!! No wonder it takes 4 books to figure this one out.
WARNING!!!!! Just go ahead and buy all four at the start so you can read right through the series!
