Mismatch is being marketed as if it were a new Tami Hoag book, typical of her recent mystery offerings. It is not. Several of her older, light-weight romance style books have been re-packaged and are being offered as if new presumably to capitalize on her current reputation. This is the second time in the past few months that I fell for this.

Mismatch's publication date is 2008. After I received it and read the first few pages, I could immediately tell that this was definitely not something that I would normally read. I checked the inside cover and knew why. The Copyright date for the book is 1989. The Copyright date for the "Cover image" is 2008. Old book, new cover.

The age of the book alone would not have caused me to give it the 1 Star rating. Lots of terrific reads are older than that. And, the basic premise was okay, if unoriginal -- two incompatible people are thrown together and despite their difference, are irresistably drawn to each other. The core problem for me was that there was not much else to the book. The plot was almost non-existent, the character development was shallow (and it is a stretch to even reference characterization at all with respect to this book), and the writing was completely uninspired. Other than the mundane descriptions of mutual lust, the most exciting thing that happens here is a sheep chewing up the pages of a report that then has to be re-copied and sent again.

Spoiler Alert - Just joking. There can't be a spoiler. From the minute the two characters meet on Page 7 and the silly descriptions of their desire begin on Page 11, you already know what the outcome will be. And the journey getting there could not duller.

*Audio version - This is not a bad story, even if the plot is predictable. It's light and entertaining, not a bad summer read. The thing that annoyed me is the narrator's voice when she's channeling 'Wade', our hero. I don't mind her other voices, but as Wade is the main male character, her exaggerated/hoarse low voice just came across rather comical and made him sound dim-witted. It just grated on my nerves. Granted this is a personal preference, but I would recommend sampling the audio if you're considering buying the audiobook.

Usually I associate Tami Hoag with suspense & mystery. So when I read the brief description of this book, I thought it couldn't be completely accurate...where was the death and mystery? There just had to be a murder or something dark buried deep in the story. But I was wrong. This was just a cute, sweet little romantic story.
Socialite Bronwynn Prescott Pierson left her philandering husband-to-be (Ross Hilliard) at the alter after discovering his betrayal (with a cousin no less). Escaping to the country, to heal and lick her wounds (well, that isn't really accurate, she does realize that she shouldn't have agreed to marry Ross), she has decided to swear off men and return her family home (Foxfire) to its former glory. Prepared to throw herself into her renovations, she definitely didn't see Congressman Wade Grayson coming.

Wade, on the other hand, has been warned about his health. He has strict orders from his doctor to get lots rest, eat well and reduce his cigarette intake, in order to heal his growing ulcer. With this in mind, he heads to the country for some peace and quiet, and all he needs is his loving Labrador/companion "Tucker". He definitely isn't prepared to encounter the whirlwind known as Bronwynn Pierson. His very first image of her is in a wedding dress destroying Ross' luggage. They couldn't be more different. But opposites attract. She is a free spirit, with bi-colored eyes and red hair. Wade is a staunch politician who initially wanted to purchase her home and turn it into a ski lodge. He is totally shocked at his attraction to her but is determined not to let their differences keep them apart. He wants her to be a part of his life but wonders how will their two worlds come together.

To me, while the story is predictable, corny and a little dated, it was cute and sweet, and I enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this story to those who enjoy light romances. It would make a wonderful beach read. I give it 3.5 to 4 stars.

I thought too that it was going to be a mystery. I like Tami Hoag books but didn't know she wrote romance novels long ago. My fault, I should have paid better attention. This is a cute book, I enjoyed it but won't buy anymore romance novels. Tami Hoag is a number one mystery/thriller author and I cannot wait for her next book.

I remember reading a snippet of this book before purchasing it. I recall thinking this seems different than the usual Hoag mystery tour. It is a different genre, but a great little romance novel, full of intriguing little romantic vignette's!

I am a FAN of Tami Hoag. This book, in my opinion was on the light side, with a reasonably good, but predictable story line. However I felt the sex angle going too far and too long-windedly at times. A bit more hassle from various parties and perhaps the press would have made it more interesting. Still a fan though and getting Alibi Man... Hoping?..
