SPOILER: can we talk about how weird it was that Theo and Cornelia end up together and everyone is so chill about it? Seriously?!!! Also, Theo was just...too perfect. Too in love. Too smitten...Cornelia was always ever just so NORMAL. I love a "regular girl" kind of MC, but this was just...unbelievable. It felt a little like an adult version of Twilight, where it was almost impossible to suspend disbelief to believe this love story would, in fact, happen. When Cornelia springs the whole, "I want to have a baby immediately...with you." line to Theo, I literally rolled my eyes...because, of course, Theo was fine with this crazy-ass line. I don't know. There were things I really liked about the story, but Marisa de los Santos just went a little too shimmery-golden-perfect for Cornelia. If you like the kind of plot where everything works out just unbelievably well, you'll enjoy this book. If not, this story is so sweet it might give you a toothache.
It's not surprising she is drawn to this beautiful man who walks into her coffee shop. He strikes her as the most Cary Grant kind of man she has ever seen. You see, Cornelia is captivated by the actors in the old black and white movies. Martin fits the mold. He looks the part and is strangely alluring.
Love Walks In is a great story that you won't want to read quickly. There is much to learn about the characters in this book. They have depth and well thought out conversations that in the end have more meaning about the way the people relate to each other. One of these characters is a child who needs a mother because she is watching hers slowly disappear. Clare at 8 years old has to consider how she can survive in her world without anyone finding out that something terrible is going on with her mother.
I recommend this book to anyone who has loved or been loved. The characters are complex and easy to care about. The story lines are interesting and well thought out. There is no graphic sex, language or blood and guts. This speaks well of an author who can advance her story without taking the easy way out.
This one had some big disappointments, like the sordid family connections that go right over your head if you read the second one first.
Kind of spoiled the sequel for me.
