By Detra Fitch VINE VOICE on January 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
Twenty-six year old Elizabeth "Betsy" McLaughlin has it all. She is the executive assistant to her father, Ward, who owns "The Office Manager", has grown up in one of the richest families of Covington, and is engaged to Todd Warner. Todd is the son of a wealthy, socially prominent family and Ward's assistant manager. Betsy thought that her life could get no better. But then Kyle began working at the company.
Kyle Alexander has finished his five year prison sentence for armed robbery and is newly paroled. His lawyer has pulled some strings to land him a cheap apartment and a job as a fork lift operator. Kyle is determined to turn over a new leaf. From now on he is on the straight and narrow. But when the boss's daughter, Betsy, begins making moves on him, Kyle cannot resist.
*** When high-society and low-society get together there is A LOT of changes in the future. The one from the rich background must adjust to a much, much lower income. Money is now a problem. The one from the poor background must feel tremendous pressure to support the new spouse. Author Elaine Cantrell did a wonderful job in showing all of that.
My problem with the story is the major immaturity of the two main characters, especially Betsy. She comes across as if she is teenager with no brains. Kyle sometimes comes across this way, but now nearly as often.
Todd comes across perfectly as the spoiled, rich guy. So does the characters named Jennifer and Marnie. I have hopes that each of these three characters will have their own stories told in the future. Recommended reading. ***

I'm no book reviewer. I'm not even a romance novel fan, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading this tale of ill-fated love.

The characters were believable and it was easy to care about the main characters. They seemed like people that you might know if you live around Greenville, SC. The plot has just enough twists and turns to make you angry, sympathetic and curious about how things will turn out.

If you want an easy, down to earth romance novel without the raunchiness then this is an excellent choice.

Elaine mixes romance with real life choices. A New Leaf had me wondering "What would I do?" throughout the whole story. It was not just charming, but uplifting. It's a book that makes you smile inside and out. My only complaint was I hated putting it down!
