The Hero had been hurt, but was was still willing to go out in public. He didn't enjoy the social things and would have loved to have been married, but wasn't much of a socializer. One day while looking in a bookstore, he runs into Amelia Partridge and not hearing what she said, picks up her books and hands them to her. She doesn't seem too affected at first, but later she is thinking about him. She dosen't know who he is, but she meets him again at a concert that her friend is putting on that night for her daughters. The Hero is their uncle Lord Bartlett who is staying in town for the holidays. Lord Bartlet is sitting down when Amelia sits next to him. It is intermission and his sister introduces him to lady Amelia. From then on, they meet several times. He saves her when she is alone and some ruffians surround her-- she didn't want her footman to know she wrote novels-- if it got back to her brother- he would make her stop. It seems they are falling in love.. You will enjoy it- It is really good and the story picks up fast.
I thought overall it was a really nice story, if a bit predictable in the plot. Now, since there are only so many really original plots and only so many truly new story lines, it hard not to be predictable. The trick for the author lies in their ability to make those things appear as new and fresh. I believe that is exactly what this author managed to do. In the process she delivered a highly entertaining story as well.
I would recommend this one if you are looking for a fun, short and reasonably fresh approach to an age old story or love and romance.
It was sweet. I liked the characters and the writing was sufficiently competent.
It did have a "self-published" feel to it, though I realize that it's been published through a real publisher.
The problems I found with it was that it kind of went on too long (some parts could have been trimmed a bit) and there wasn't enough conflict. It was more about these two nice people that meet, like each other, are shy, but overcome it after a pretty brief misunderstanding. The end.
I expected a little more angst than that! Some more drama or something.
But since it wasn't very long, it was okay. I will probably read more from this author. It was a "sweet" romance (no hot and heavy love scenes) which is fine, since I love Jane Austen and her writing also is devoid of hot and heavy.
I did not want to put it down. It was a sweet, clean romance.
I thought the characters were wonderfully developed which is sometimes not well done in novellas put Patricia Kiyono mastered it with this story.
I will be reading it again closer to the holidays.
