A little bit of mystery and a little bit of Romantic Comedy woven together pretty well. The ending was a bit rushed but the book is enjoyable. If you know much about construction you might scratch your head quite a few times but with most books of this genre it is best to sit back and just enjoy the reading. The author has created the lenses she wants you to view the world through and logic or how things are really done don't always make for the best story.
Will look forward to seeing more from this author.
Being an A type personality myself, I can understand how she works. I had a good friend that works the way he does. DROVE me up the wall on a daily basis. But, she hires him knowing how he works and then she fumes through most of the book because of his work ethic. Ok, she got what she paid for, no sympathy there. Naturally, they fall for each other but keep their distance. It would never work. Two exact opposites. Then she finds out some very personal, tragic news from his past. A friend of his tells her, HE DOES NOT. So what does she do? She tells the first jerk that comes along the information. Now, WHY WOULD SHE do that? Now, smart as our gal is, it never occurs to her that the mob guy, who will do anything, would stoop to keeping her from making the deadline. Never even crosses her mind. STUPID. Of course, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that her "new best friend" is about to sell her up the river.
I quit reading. It is a good story and I know it will end with HEA. I just could not deal with any more of her being stupid. I would imagine that when it is all over he will forgive her everything but I can't stand to spend anymore time with her. I would like to have a business question answered. If you owe $250,000 on a business. Spend close to that to get it up to speed and then you start to rent rooms, I think 5 bedrooms is what it had, how long before you start to make a profit? B&B just doesn't seem like the way to make a living. Especially when you cannot guarantee that every room will be filled every day so income is not guaranteed.
The father that loved her so much left her with this debt then gives his insurance policy to the 2nd wife that could have cared less if he was living or dead. I have to wonder why he didn't leave it to her to get his dream finished. I can see why he only left the other two siblings a pittance, but he left her the same amount and she was the special one. Doesn't add up. I realize that if she can get the property finished and up and running then she gets a good deal but she still owes the loan shark $250,000. That is a lot of room renting!!! Maybe I just don't understand business.
I really liked this hero and I liked the storyline. I just got pissed off with the heroine. He was giving up everything for her dream and she didn't even appreciate it.
If you are looking for a clean nice romance with some good chemistry and a different plot this is a good choice.
Top international reviews
The first time I noticed this book I skipped straight past it because I hated the cover but it kept cropping up so eventually I read the blurb and while it only had two reviews they were both 5* so I decided to give it a try.
After reading this book I've decided it just wasn't for me I can see why other readers loved it but I'm too picky, I know I am and I truly wish I wasn't it spoils so many books for me but I just couldn't get past Beth.
Beth's dad Charlie was a dreamer his latest project and obsession was to create a 1940's bed and breakfast called The Yesterday. He died leaving it to Beth along with a two-hundred fifty thousand dollar loan, this loan was from a complete lowlife the ruthless Carmine Parente and the deal he signed states that if this bed and breakfast isn't up and running, a functioning business by New Year's Day then the structure, completed or otherwise, and its property shall become the property of the lender, this is a property valued at over eight million.
Charlie then proceeds to leave his money grabbing wife Ruth his life insurance policy valued at one-hundred fifty thousand dollars (less expenses)
It's now March and it's nowhere near finished so Beth hires Sean Campbell to complete it for her and while she keeps telling him she has a deadline she never tells him why. I mean seriously come on why wouldn't she tell him, she needs him to get it completed on time and once he finds out (from someone else) he works every hour he can to get finished in time even sinking his own money in.
As if this wasn't bad enough Beth never considers that a lowlife like Parente would try to sabotage her and the fact that she meets Girard just at this time who becomes her friend and then proceeds to give her conflicting advice.
I could go on and on and don't get me started on here financial viability but basically Beth's either an idiot or so naive its untrue and she spoilt the whole book for me.
Have to say I loved Sam, he was simply fabulous.
I wish I could have enjoyed this more but I just couldn't get past Beth.
