As it happens, she does a last minute fill in on a reality show about romance. Three women will date one man. They will all learn what kind of man they really want, what their issues are and how to overcome them, etc. She agrees to sign on because it will get her out of town and to a castle in Scotland complete with its own Liard. Sounds perfect? Well, turns out it is anything but...
This is a delightful, funny, romantic, sweet story of how the heroine finds her true love in the most unexpected place. A little bit of insight on how these shows are made and how unbelievable they really are! It is a good read and I throughly enjoyed it. I definitely recommend it for readers of any age. It leaves you feeling good.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 1/23/18
Writing - 4 stars - Fox grabbed me right from the beginning with the entertaining wedding scene, then heading straight to Scotland for the reality show.
Characters - 2 stars - This is where the story faltered for me. Lucy is just an OK heroine. She has fallen into this reality show accidentally, but she did commit to it and I found her discomfort about the cameras and the questions to be a little contrived. Sure, it's odd to have cameras watching you all the time, but that's part of the deal and they seemed to be very discreet. And what adult can't answer a few simple straightforward questions about her ideal male and places she'd like to go on a date, etc.? But the biggest problem I had was when she and Liam decided to run off together for a few days. I mean, geez, she was part of a TV program involving other participants and a crew, and you just head off on a little vacation in the middle? I found her lack of responsibility to be quite unattractive. I didn't feel that we got to know her very well. Even though she's the eyes through which we see the story, she doesn't come across very clearly. She's a little distracted, lacks confidence, and just seems very naive. Which is why I didn't really buy the relationship between her and Liam. He is supposedly a confident and suave man of the world, and his instant attraction to a young and innocent girl made sense, I suppose, but his deep and abiding love seemed less believable.
Title - 3 stars - The title is OK, although it doesn't really focus on what the book is really about, I don't think. Yes, she is moving on with her life (after Marcus), but it's really about something new and something romantic.
Cover - 2 stars - The cover for the book I read is cute, with little cafe tables, although I'm not sure what that has to do with the book. Wasn't it about a castle in Scotland? I don't remember any cafe in the story.
Overall - 3 stars - The premise is good, but I found the characters to be somewhat clumsy and not quite believable. Lucy is a little too naive and unsure of herself when I would have preferred her to be a lot more confident. She's weathered a difficult situation over the years with her ex, but she's still giving him the benefit of the doubt even though he's been--hello--stalking her! I mean he's a little crazy, and she keeps saying she doesn't want to get him into any trouble, blah blah. Really? And the instalove between her and Liam didn't work for me. They just seemed to be too different. All in all, I enjoyed the book, but I felt it might have been a little more fun if it were fleshed out more. A little more character development, plus a little more focus on the reality show would have rounded things out nicely.
(I received this book for free and voluntarily reviewed it.)
It wasn’t without issues. Mostly in the ending where Liam pulls an exceptionally boneheaded move that felt out of character and contrived to extend the ending. The last about 20 pages dropped it a full star. However, I’d be willing to read more from this author and that’s a good thing.
This is a very sweet romance. No swearing or violence. There are some kisses and hints at sex, but no details. It is also a very British book and if you don’t know some of the slang I could see it being confusing. Thanks to my Beloved Brits I felt right at home.
